Dürer and R. Crumb United in Seattle Exhibition Devoted to the Graphic Arts

ARTDAILY
"The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb" (2009) by R. Crumb.
WASHINGTON---In its first large-scale exhibition devoted exclusively to the graphic arts, the Seattle Art Museum presents Graphic Masters: Dürer, Rembrandt, Hogarth, Goya, Picasso, R. Crumb (June 9–August 28, 2016). Featuring over 400 works by some of history’s greatest printmakers, the exhibition offers an in-depth exploration of the more than 500-year history and process of printmaking. Requiring less costly materials than painting or sculpture, printmaking gave artists the freedom to experiment, push boundaries, and express their own views with a much larger audience. [link]
