> DESCRIPTION

Fine prints have, since their origin in the 15th century, been admired for their great artistic diversity and technical virtuosity. This exhibition presents 65 exceptional works by prominent masters of the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth century’s, including masterworks by Giovanni Battista Piranesi (Italian, 1720-1788), Francisco de Goya (Spanish, 1746-1828), and Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973), each of whom is celebrated for his pioneering experiments in graphic art.

The exhibition opens with a selection of brilliant works by Piranesi, the highly influential Italian precursor of the romantic style, whose brooding and atmospheric series Carceri (Prisons), 1749-1760, is one of the great icons of the 18th century. In addition, 21 notable graphic works by Picasso, including etchings from the Vollard Suite created between 1930 and 1937, The 347 Series of 1968, and Picasso’s Series 156 completed in 1971 as well as  etchings from Goya’s The Disasters of War (1810-20) and various lithographs, etchings, woodcuts and pochoirs by James McNeil Whistler (American, 1834-1903), John Taylor Arms (American, 1887-1953),  Paul Cézanne,  (French, 1839-1906), Pierre Auguste Renoir (French, 1841-1919), Georges Rouault (French, 1871-1958), Paul Gauguin (French, 1848- 1903), George Braque (French, 1882-1963), Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French, 1864-1901), Fernand Léger (French, 1881-1955), Joan Miró (Spanish, 1893-1983), Marc Chagall (Russian, 1887-1985), and George Braque (French, 1881-1955).
