Presented By Snite Museum of Art
Notre Dame, IN, St. Joseph County
Sun, 08/24/2014 to Sun, 11/16/2014
Featuring works from the Snite Museum’s growing collection of prints, this exhibition introduces visitors to lithography, a printmaking medium invented in 1799. Part I of this two-part exhibition highlights works from the 1800s and charts lithography’s technical development and popular applications in illustrated newspapers and promotional material for theatrical performances through its elevation to a “fine” art. Political cartoons by Honoré Daumier, a playbill by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and J.A.M. Whistler’s experiments in aestheticism will be on view.
This exhibition is made possible by support from the Snite General Endowment
