Description

Etchings and lithographs by Parisian artists represented in the Hillman Collection, selected from the collection and on loan, make up this exhibition.

Many of the artists represented in the Hillman Collection were the most original and prolific printmakers of their day. Etchings and lithographs by Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse, Manet, Degas and Cassatt will be included among 40 works selected from the Museum's collection and private collections. The exhibition, which complements "Paris and Modern Art," will display the innovations in printmaking in Paris when photography took over reporduction and artists explored the inherent qualities of printmaking techniques.
