Great Graphics II: Prints from 1970 to the Present
February 6, 2008 - June 1, 2008
Center Gallery
"Chambers", 1980 by James Rosenquist, American, born 1933, lithograph, Museum purchase, 1985.22

Following the inaugural exhibition, Great Graphics: Prints and Drawings 1470-1970, guest curator David P. Becker showcases the Museum's collection of prints since 1970. During this period, American and European artists often worked on a very large scale, producing prints that rival paintings in scale and graphic power. The same era also saw the integration of photo-imagery in printmaking, together with the recent introduction of digital technology. The exhibit will include prints by Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Elizabeth Murray, Alison Saar, Georg Baselitz, Chuck Close, and Lucien Freud, among others.

GALLERY TALK: Thursday, February 14 at 4:00 p.m in the Bowdoin College Museum of Art. David P. Becker will speak on "Mantegna to Mangold: Graphic Interest from the Renaissance to the Internet."
