Etch and Flow
This exhibition will accompany From the Schuylkill to the Hudson: Landscapes of the Early American Republic, 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, curated by Ramey Mize, a doctoral candidate at the University of Pennsylvania, will showcase this theme as reflected in PAFA's significant repository of etchings, many of which were acquired through the John S. Phillips Fund.
