Starting From Scratch: Etching From Durer to Dine

Photograuve & Starting From Scratch

The Prints, Drawings, and Photography department at the Philadelphia Museum of Art currently has two exhibitions on view: "Photograuve: Master Prints from the Collection" and "Starting From Scratch: Etching From Durer to Dine" both open until August 11, 2013. As one of the 2013 summer interns, I had the opportunity to take part in a great curatorial tour of each exhibition. Peter Barberie, the Brodsky Curator of Photographs (Alfred Stieglitz Center) curated "Photogravure: Master Prints from the Collection" and James R. Wehn, Margaret R. Mainwaring Curatorial Fellow of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, co-curated "Starting from Scratch: The Art of Etching from Dürer to Dine" with Shelley R. Langdale, Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings. These two exhibitions give their audiences a well-rounded understanding of each medium throughout history.
