Etch & Flow

Waterscapes by American Painters-Etchers
June-December 2019
Richard C. von Hess Foundation Works on Paper Gallery
 
This exhibition will accompany From Schuylkill to the Hudson as a satellite installation featuring prints by artists associated with the American Etching Revival and Impressionism. The improvisatory quality of the etched line, drawn directly on the plate in en plein air settings, made it particularly suited to landscape subjects, and especially water scenes. This exhibition will showcase this theme as reflected in PAFA’s significant repository of etchings, many of which were acquired through the John S. Phillips Fund.
