Baltimore Museum of Art is Showcasing Significant Prints From its Collection

BALTIMORE—The Baltimore Museum of Art is exhibiting a monumental selection of prints from its collection, including works by Pablo Picasso and Ed Ruscha. “Print by Print: Series from Dürer to Lichtenstein” features a colorful portfolio, engaging narratives and images of war. Spanning more than 500 years, most of the 30 print series are not produced in color, making two works in particular—by Sonia Delaunay and Marcel Duchamp—stand out.

The exhibit is on view from Oct. 30, 2011, to March 25, 2012.
