    International Exhibition of Etchings [Print Club of Philadelphia]

    Press Releases ?
    • January 30, 1929: An etching show of unusually high calibre and of wide appeal is to be opened in the Brooklyn Museum Print Gallery on Sunday, February 3rd to continue until February 27th. The is the International Exhibition of Etchings assembled by the Print Club of Philadelphia.

      Mrs. Andrew Wright Crawford, Director of the Club, went abroad last summer for the express purpose of assembling this show. Owing to the cordial relations existing between the Philadelphia Print Club and the Museum's Print Department, it is possible to exhibit this remarkable collection in Greater New York.

      It is unusually comprehensive in scope as the 225 prints represent artists from England, Ireland, Russia, Norway, Sweden, Czechoslovakia, India, Greece, Holland, Japan, Belgium, France, Germany, Scotland, Italy, Austria and Spain. The largest groups are from England, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden. The exhibition met with overwhelming success in Philadelphia: such a success that it was a surprise to the Print Club which appreciated that it would necessarily be well received but had not accurately predicted the unusual enthusiasm that it aroused. The exhibition presents an excellent opportunity for students of the etching to compare the work of the well-known and lesser-known artists of the several countries named above. Recounting the names of several of the artists represented clearly demonstrates the caliber of the exhibition to these familiar with the well-known names in this medium.

      England: Stanley Anderson, Job Nixin, Martin Hardie, Edmund Blamfried, Malcolm Osborne, Norman Janes, Gerlad L. Brockhurst, Ethel Gabain, Augustus E. John, H. Gordon Warlow, Edmund J. Sullivan. Norway: A. Hammarbach, Olaf Willums, J. Nordhagen. France: Verge Sarrat, Jacques Beurdeley, Aristide Maillol, Marie Laurencin, Camille Pissarro, Albert Besnard, Picasso, Dunoyer de Segonzac. Germany: Rudolph Grossman, Pechstein, Lievermann, Carl Hofer, Aichinger, H. Thiel Roux, Alpha. Czechslovakia: Livia Kadar, Szonyi, Zado, Komjathy. Sweden: Gustav Magnusson, Harald Sallberg, Emil Johanson-Thor, Knut Janson, Axel Fridell. Holland: J. Poortenaar. Greece: G. Contant. Scotland: James McBey, Camercon, Muirhead Bone. Italy: Celestino Celestini, E. Mazzoni-Zarini, Checchi.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"

Collections of the former Department of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs include works on paper that may fall into other categories: American Art, European Art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, and Photography.
    The Brooklyn Museum Archives maintains a collection of historical press releases. Many of these have been scanned and made available on our Web site. The releases range from brief announcements to extensive articles; images of the original releases have been included for your reference. Please note that all the original typographical elements, including occasional errors, have been retained. Releases may also contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
    For select exhibitions, we have made available some or all of the informative text panels written by the curator or organizer. Called "didactics," these panels are presented to the public during the exhibition's run, and we reproduce them here for your reference and archival interest. Please note that any illustrations on the original didactics have not been retained, and that the text may contain errors as a result of the scanning process. We welcome your feedback about corrections.
