Collection Focus: Lithography

Wednesday, February 14, 2024

The Museum's permanent collection is made up of over individual 10,000 objects. This larger permanent collection is built from smaller special collections like contemporary American watermedia paintings, prints, decorative arts and furniture, photography, textiles, cultural artifacts, and sculpture, among others. Collection focus exhibitions aim to create a deeper understanding and connection with select artists, artistic media, genres, or art periods. Printmaking comprises the largest media in the Museum’s permanent collection (approximately 30%). It was made a collection focus by the Museum’s first full-time paid director, Winslow Ames, in 1947, as a way to more affordably collect examples of work by European Old Masters. Every subsequent director has continued to support this endeavor, expanding to contemporary printmaking and beyond, resulting in a rich and varied collection. This exhibition focuses on the medium of lithography through a cross-section of work, including a wide range of artists, styles, eras, and nationalities. Collection Focus: Lithography is organized by Curator of Art Sarah Buhr.
