The first exhibition of the year has just been placed in the Fogg Art Museum. Among the prints shown are great masterpieces in engraving including Pollainole's Battle of the Nudes, Mantegna's Virgin and Child, and Battle of the Lea Gods; Albrecht Durer's Melancholia, Knight of Death, Adam and Eve, St. Gerome in his Cell; Rembrandt's Three Trees, and Three Crosses; and the Black Lion Wharf, and Fiddler; by Whistler. A group of old engraver's tools serve to make clearer the technical processes, and to make the exhibition more interesting.
The prints have been chosen from the collection in the Fogg Museum to illustrate the technical processes used by the engravers from the middle of the fifteenth century to modern, times. The exhibition was originally planned more particularly for student taking Fine Arts 5F under Professor P. J. Sachs.
