Private Lives/ Parallel Visions. Lithographs and Etchings (Drawing Gallery)
Sep 13 - Oct 29, 1994
Concurrent with Manny Farber: New Paintings will be an exhibition of prints by Max Beckmann (1884 - 1950) and Lovis Corinth (1858 - 1925). The focus of the exhibition, which will include approximately 15 prints, is the extensive body of graphic work that Beckmann and Corinth produced dealing with their private lives- candid portraits of their wives, children and close friends as well as self-portraits and scenes of the city and countryside where they worked. Although quite different stylistically, Beckmann and Corinth produced emotionally charged works that reveal much about their relationships with their families and close friends, and both artists were fascinated with the dramatic possibilities of the self-portrait. The Beckmann/Corinth exhibition will open September 13th and continue through October.
