Description:

To welcome students and faculty back to campus for this academic year, the Special Collections Department at Georgetown University presents Printmakers A - Z. Similar to another Georgetown exhibition previously discussed in the January 7, 2000 Scout Report, American Posters of World War One, this show uses a simple design, arranging thumbnail views in one long page, with brief accompanying information. Users can click on the thumbnails for larger views. The exhibition concept is also simple: "to present a brief survey of some of the famous, and some of the not-so-famous prints in the University's fine print collections, without recourse to some unifying theme." By doing this, the exhibition informs users that Georgetown University owns prints not only by some better known artists, such as John Steuart Curry, Jacob Lawrence, and Grant Wood, but also prints by another group of possibly lesser-known artists whose works are seen in print collections all over the US, including B.J.O. Norfeldt, Louis John Rhead, and Lucienne Bloch.
