Stone, Wood, Metal, Mesh: Prints and Printmaking
January 19 - March 17, 2013
Stone, Wood, Metal, Mesh: Prints and Printmaking explores ancient and modern printmaking techniques, including woodcuts, wood engravings, etchings, drypoints, aquatints, mezzotints, lithographs, chromolithographs, and screenprints, through a selection of approximately 150 masterworks from the Addison’s collection. The exhibition spans more than two centuries and includes an early engraved broadside by Paul Revere and mezzotints by Charles de Saint Memin; Audubon’s dramatic hand-colored lithographs and popular chromolithographs by Currier & Ives; masterful etchings and drypoints by James M. Whistler, Charles A. Platt, Edward Hopper, Martin Lewis, George Bellows, and John Sloan; bold contemporary lithographs by Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell, and Robert Motherwell; and large multimedia prints and screenprints by Andy Warhol, Chuck Close, Richard Serra, and Frank Stella.
Generous support for this exhibition was provided by the Mark Rudkin Fund.
