Dürer, Rembrandt & Whistler: Prints from the Collection of Dr. Dorrance T. Kelly

June 15, 2013 - August 18, 2013

One of the most distinguished local collections of prints has been assembled by Dr. Dorrance T. Kelly. While his collection has been comprised primarily of American twentieth-century prints and prints by John James Audubon, in recent years he has also collected Old Master and nineteenth-century works extensively.

These encompass splendid sheets by the great German printmaker Albrecht Dürer (1471 - 1528), including a rare etching, woodcuts, and engravings of such iconic images as his Nemesis of 1502.

Dr. Kelly's Dutch prints include several of the rare engravings after the influential Adam Elsheimer (1574 - 1610) by Hendrik Goudt (1583 - 1648), and no less than twenty-eight images by the highly experimental printmaker Rembrandt van Rijn (1606 - 1669), ranging from early works of the 1630s to mature impressions from the 1650s.

His eighteenth-century holdings include sheets by the great Italian artists Canaletto (1697 - 1768) and Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo (1727 - 1804) and several fine sheets from Los Caprichos by the renowned Spanish artist Francisco de Goya y Lucientes (1746 - 1828).

Completing the collection is a group of etched cityscapes and figure studies by James Abbott McNeill Whistler (1834 - 1903). Together the collection attests to the quality of some of the greatest printmakers in Western Art.
