The Fine Art of Printmaking


American interest in printmaking as a fine art form developed during the nineteenth century, a movement led by artists such as John James Audubon, Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, and James A. McNeill Whistler. Featuring prints from the Gibbes’ rich collection of works on paper, this exhibition explores a variety of printmaking techniques used by artists from the mid nineteenth century through the present.
