    Impressionist Prints from the Collection of The Brooklyn Museum

    Press Releases ?
    • Spring 1986: Impressionist Prints from The Brooklyn Museum Collection, an exhibition of fifty-seven graphic works from the Museum’s permanent collection, will be on view in the Prints and Drawings galleries on the second floor from March 6 through April 5, 1986.

      The exhibition complements two important shows of French 19th- and 20th-century art, now on loan to The Brooklyn Museum. One of them, a selection from the Alex Hillman Family Foundation Collection, will be on view through January 5, 1987; the other, From Courbet to Cèzanne: A New 19th Century, the much-awaited preview of the new Musée d’Orsay in Paris, will close on May 5, 1986.

      The exhibition of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist prints represents important holdings of the Museum’s Prints and Drawings Department which have not been seen in years. It includes works by Manet, Degas, Pissarro, Cassatt, Renoir, Sisley, Cézanne and Signac. Edouard Manet, who was the first of the Impressionists to make prints, inspired by the etching revival in France in the 1860s, is represented by thirteen works. Of the five prints by Edgar Degas, three were included in the definitive Degas print exhibition organized by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1984. Camille Pissarro is represented by ten works, among them a complete record, the only one in an American collection, of the several stages of a Pissarro print. The exhibition also includes sixteen prints by Mary Cassatt, the American artist who was Degas’ protégé, seven of them prized color aquatints. A rare and important letter from Cassatt to Samuel Putnam Avery, the American print collector, explaining her method of color printing, will be included as documentation. Renoir’s career is exemplified by seven prints from 1893 to 1912 and Paul Signac is represented by two lithographs. As a whole, the exhibition contributes to a full understanding of the Impressionists’ accomplishments in printmaking.

      “Impressionism and Post-Impressionism,” a four-part seminar exploring major developments in late 19th-century French art, will draw on examples from The Brooklyn Museum’s permanent collection, the Alex Hillman Family Foundation collection, and the visiting exhibition from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. The course will begin on Saturday, March 22. Advance registration is required; for information call (718) 638-5000, ext. 232.

    "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"
