The Artist Collects: Highlights from the James Reed Collection

March 14, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - June 8, 2019 @ 4:00 pm

Free

This exhibition celebrates the transformative gift of the James Reed Collection of Old Master, 19th-century, and modern prints to the Fairfield University Art Museum. Assembled over several decades by artist, collector and Master Printer James Reed, the collection comprises more than 1,500 prints spanning the 16th through the early 21st centuries. The exhibition presents highlights from the three great strengths of the Reed Collection: 19th-century French etching and lithography; German Expressionist woodcuts and lithographs; and modern and contemporary prints.

Among the 19th-century French artists represented in the exhibition are Eugène Delacroix, Honoré Daumier, Gustave Doré, Odilon Redon, and Henri Fantin-Latour. Works by Emil Nolde, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Beckmann, and other German Expressionist artists will also be on view, as will prints, rare artists’ books, and artists’ multiples by modern and contemporary artists including Claes Oldenburg, Jasper Johns, Damien Hirst, and Jim Dine.
