A Changing Landscape: Prints and Drawings from the Elkind Collection
November 7, 2006 – January 4, 2007
The show featured works by many of the greatest northern European graphic artists of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, including Hendrick Goltzius, Jacques Callot, and Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn. The exhibit cataloged many subjects of fascination and included Old Testament stories of virtue and vice, classical myths and allegories, landscapes and peasant scenes. “The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw artists create images that reflected their ever growing view of the world,” says Domenic Iacono, Director of SUArt Galleries, who jointly curated this exhibit with Andrew Weislogel, assistant curator/master teacher at the Johnson Musuem of Art at Cornell University. This exhibition also illustrated Arlene and Arthur Elkind’s desire to collect work that mirrored a late Renaissance view of the world, that included religious subjects, landscapes, historical scenes, and genre subjects.
