19th & 20th Century Prints & Drawings
Culture
swanngalleries.com

Swann's fall auction season opens with this exceptional auction that features prints and drawings by celebrated American and European masters. The sale, which takes place on Tuesday September 23rd and Wednesday September 24th, is separated into three distinct sections:

19th-century works include a run of James A.M. Whistler prints, among them one of only seven known impressions of his etching The Courtyard, Brussels, 1887, as well as prints by Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

American Regionalist prints are particularly strong in this sale, with The Race, 1942, leading an extensive collection of Thomas Hart Benton lithographs and drawings. Also noteworthy is a diverse group of New York City prints by artists such as Martin Lewis and Louis Lozowick. Blanche Lazzell's Tulips, 1920, a scarce color woodcut created by the artist in Provincetown, is also a highlight.

A separate section of fine prints and original works by modern European masters is scheduled for the morning of September 24th. Headlining is a fine selection of more than 75 prints, devoted to master works by Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse from 1900 to 1970, including the former's 1962 color linoleum cut Jacqueline au Bandeau de Face (Grand Tête de Femme) and the latter's 1900-03 self portrait Henri Matisse gravant.

The prints and drawings will be on view at Swann Galleries September 18 & 19, 10:00am - 6:00pm; September 20, 12:00pm - 5:00pm; and September 22, 10:00am - 6:00pm. For further information on the works, contact Swann's Prints & Drawings department.

Exhibitions at the Center for Book Arts
Culture
centerforbookarts.org

The Center for Book Arts promotes active explorations of both contemporary and traditional artistic practices related to the book as an art object. The Center seeks to facilitate communication between the book arts community and the larger spheres of contemporary visual and literary arts, while being a model organization locally, nationally, and internationally within the field.

On exhibition at The Center for Book Arts from July 23rd through September 27th are Livre d'Artiste d'Aujourd'hui: Interdisciplinary Collaborations and Zines+ and the World of ABC No Rio.

Livre d'Artiste d'Aujourd'hui: Interdisciplinary Collaborations, organized by Alexander Campos and Maddy Rosenberg, explores the question "What is a livre d'artiste?". One could argue, not in absolute, that the livre d'artiste was "traditionally" put together by the publisher asking an artist and writer (who often didn't even know each other) to create work for a publication. For this exhibition, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers, etc, have found ways to self-produce publications that embody the collaborative spirit embedded in the concept of the livre d'artiste. The exhibition will present the work of a true collaboration, not one artist responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

To learn more about the Livre d'Artiste d'Aujourd'hui: Interdisciplinary Collaborations exhibition, click here.

Zines+ and the World of ABC No Rio, organized by curator Jason Lujan, is an exhibition that goes beyond the mere form of the zine (an abbreviation of the term fanzine), which is usually a cheaply-made and priced publication, often in black and white, mass-produced via a photocopier, and bound with staples. The exhibit presents and explains a range of these self-same printed materials, mixing both artists' original creations with items from the ABC No Rio zine library archives, covering subject matter from arts-community history to political commentary. The zines will be shown in the context of art in book form. The overall aesthetic reflects a Do-It-Yourself approach, firmly rooted in a downtown New York scene that celebrates volunteerism, art, and activism.
