Portland Art Museum: Animals in print
March 1 - March 31
Portland Art Museum: Kingdom Animalia
Animals in Print from Dürer to Picasso
Furry, fierce, majestic, or sublime, animals have been featured in the graphic arts since the advent of printmaking. Drawn from the Museum’s collection, this exhibition offers a 500-year sampling of the wide-ranging depiction of the kingdom Animalia in prints, drawings, and posters, from the playful to the ferocious. Artists as diverse as Albrecht Dürer, John James Audubon, Eugène Delacroix, and Pablo Picasso are joined by regional favorites Beth Van Hoesen and Frank Boyden, among others, in this lively exploration of artful animals.
