Ask the Experts: The History of Print Culture

In the fall of 2013, University Galleries began a project to document the knowledge of print experts from throughout the world. Four renowned print scholars from London were recorded in conversation with USD's former Print Curator, Victoria Sancho Lobis. The collection of these inertviews is recorded here: Adrian Eeles, private art consultant and print dealer; Antony Griffiths, former Keeper of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum; Martin Royalton-Kisch, former Curator in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum; and Sir Christopher White, former Director of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.

Victoria Sancho Lobis on Georges Rouault's "Miserere"

An installation from USD's permanent collection, this exhibition presented the prints of Georges Rouault's powerful and poignant Miserere series along with a rotating selection of student responses to the prints. Rouault has long been recognized as among the most spiritually committed artists of the 20th century. Rouault studied with symbolist painter Gustave Moreau and eventually developed a highly individual and personal style of representation, often characterized by an intimate portrayal of the human figure rendered in complex layers of tone and texture.

Beyond the Book

In the fall of 2012, student Kat Ayd organized an exhibition of student artwork in response to objects in the university's permanent print collection and on long-term loan from the Getscher-Wilkinson Collection. The exhibition was mounted in the Hoehn Family Galleries in the spring of 2013.
