There are two exhibits 

Picasso, Braque & Léger:
20TH CENTURY MODERN MASTERS

Picasso, Braque & Léger: 20th Century Modern Masters is on view in The Shelley and Donald Rubin Gallery. This exhibition of more than 80 works introduces viewers to lithographs, etchings and aquatints by three of the 20th century’s modernist leaders.

These fine prints were the result of collaborations or interpretations of major literary works by post WWII writers and poets, such as Le Cocu Magnifique by Fernand Crommelynck and illustrated by Pablo Picasso, Le tir à l’arc published by Louis Broder, Paris, and illustrated by Georges Braque, and Arthur Rimbaud’s poem Fêtes de la Faimillustrated by Fernand Léger.

This exhibition is part of The Shelley & Donald Rubin Exhibition Series and was organized by curator Reilly Rhodes of Contemporary and Modern Print Editions.

Please note: No photography allowed.  This exhibition contains mature content.

VICTOR HUGO: Selections from the Schlossberg Collection

In the Center Gallery are drawings, prints and sculpture by a number of artists celebrating the life and work of literary and political figure Victor Hugo. Victor Hugo: Selections from the Schlossberg Collection presents 17 works by 15 nineteenth century artists including Jean Francois Raffaelli and Frederick Hendrik Kaemmerer both students of Jean-Leon Gerôme. A bronze sculpture study of 1903 by Jean Boucher for his monumental Hugo sculpture completed in 1913 will be on view.  The larger work was presented by the French government to the island of Guernsey where Hugo was exiled and where he wrote his most famous works, Notre Dame de Paris (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) and Les Miserables.”

    oh, and four stars instead of 5 because a docent would have been the icing on the cake! Sorry that the docent didn't show up.

    A wonderful intimate small collection of prints that very much deserve to be seen. The space is calming and as Ginger was saying, very peaceful. Added bonus was the Sunbloom Santas (famous artist for Coca-Cola holiday packaging) exhibit in the second showcase hall.
