Description

Around 1900, prints played a significant role voicing the agenda of activists for social and political reform. The exhibition, drawn from the permanent collection, will include work from the critical period around 1880-1920, and will also include examples of more recent graphic art aligned with political activism and social reform. Among the artists included in the exhibition will be Félix Vallotton, Alfred Jarry, Théophile Alexandre Steinlein, Käthe Kollwitz, Constantin Meunier, Lazar El Lissitsky, Picasso, John Sloan, and Louis Lozowick.
