  • November 6, 1946: A new exhibition of prints by the members of VANGUARD opens in the Museum’s print gallery November 6 to be current through December 15,

    Twenty-two modern artists, having a common interest in new and experimental approaches to the field of fine prints, organized, in 1945, a graphic arts group known as VANGUARD. They propose not only to explore new ideas and techniques within the printing arts, but to encourage and stimulate a more general interest in modern graphic art by circulating exhibitions of their work.

    Concerned with contemporary hand processes in all print media, the members of VANGUARD work in woodcut, wood-engraving, copper engraving, etching, lithography, serigraphy and lumiprinting. Their first exhibition as a group, held at the Philadelphia Print Club in October 1945, was highly successful. Since then, VANGUARD has held exhibitions in a number of museums, schools and art associations throughout the United States,
