December 1, 2015 – May 2016 • Works on Paper Gallery
LRMA holds an extensive collection of prints by American graphic artist Leonard Baskin (1922-2000) that have been generously given over the years by donor Lothar J. Uhl. Many of these works were featured in the 2006 special exhibition Weird and Wonderful: Graphics by Leonard Baskin.
A fascinating boxed portfolio of 13 prints entitled Ars Anatomica: A Medical Fantasy, based on anatomical drawings created from Baskin’s imagination, will be on view this winter in the Works on Paper Gallery. This is the first time the framed prints have been shown. The prints also will be included in a national traveling exhibition. Organized by LRMA and circulated by the Washington, DC based exhibition service, International Art and Artists, the exhibition will begin in 2017.
