Later this month, the Baltimore Museum of Art will open Print by Print: Series from Dürer to Lichtenstein exhibition of more than 350 prints by American and European artists who work in series from the late 15th through the 21st century.
Because of the BMA’s extensive collection of works on paper, museum-goers will be given the opportunity to twenty-nine print series in their entirety, the only way to grasp the narrative (literal or abstract) offered by the artist working in series.
The exhibition will build a meta-narrative of its own, as over 500 years of printmaking practices in Europe and America are hung side by side, revealing a history of mechanical reproduction from 15th century woodcuts to 21st century screenprints.
Print by Print: Series from Dürer to Lichtenstein opens at the BMA on October 30 and will remain on view until March 25.
