Noble Maritime Collection: Opening Reception – This is a Print
Mar 31 @ 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM

The Noble Maritime Collection presents This is a Print, an exhibition of antique and contemporary art.  It will open with a reception in the museum’s library on Sunday, March 31 from 2 until 5 PM, and continue through January 2020.  Inspired by John A. Noble’s preference for printmaking, this exhibition includes pieces from the newly acquired collection of historian Barnett Shepherd.

This is a Print surveys the history of prints and the differences amongst various mediums, including etchings, engravings, lithographs, mezzotints, and photogravures.

Opening reception: March 31, 2019
Admission: FREE
Noble Maritime Collection (Building D)

This is a Print incorporates more than a dozen pieces from the Shepherd Collection including an etching by Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945), the German printmaker who recorded her experiences in World War II; a serigraph by surrealist Salvador Dalí (1904-89); and an 18th-century mezzotint by Edward Fisher (1722-1781) after Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792).

The exhibition will also present several pieces from the museum’s collection, including a lithograph and lithography stone by John A. Noble (1913-1983), a drypoint etching and plate by noted local artist F.A. Busing (1881-1962), and a letterpress portrait and plate of Noble’s mother Gloria by Marion Jochimsen (1894-1996).

This exhibition is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
