The classical tradition has come down to us in fragments, and that incomplete nature has allowed artists the opportunity to fill in and respond to what remains. This exhibit presents prints and illustrated books from the Wake Forest Print Collection, the Student Union Collection, and Z. Smith Reynolds Library Special Collections. It includes pieces by well-known masters like Claude Lorraine, Piranesi, Daumier, Cezanne and Picasso. The objects date from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century, and are made with a variety of techniques from woodcuts and engravings, to inkjet prints.
The exhibit was planned by the History of Prints class taught by Professor Bernadine Barnes in the fall of 2013.
