Urban Impressions: New York City in Prints, 1900–1940

Exhibition Website

Mar 30 2017 - Jul 9 2017

Early twentieth-century New York City—with its increasingly diverse populace, expanding skyline, and changed public mores—made modern life in the metropolis a place of interest for artists working in a variety of media. 

The group of print artists featured in this exhibition resisted the growing popularity of abstraction, choosing instead to commit themselves to representing the human figure in the urban environment. Made with etching needles, burnishers, plate, and stone and featuring people at work, at play and on the move, the resulting prints offer us an intriguing glimpse of a rapidly changing America.
