Lange traveled around the country for the U.S. Farm Security Administration from 1935 to1939 documenting the effects of the Great Depression.

About the Artist: Corita Kent (1918–1986) was an artist, educator, and advocate for social justice. At age 18 she entered the religious order Immaculate Heart of Mary, eventually teaching in and then heading up the art department at Immaculate Heart College. Her work evolved from figurative and religious to incorporating advertising images and slogans, popular song lyrics, biblical verses, and literature. Throughout the ‘60s, her work became increasingly political, urging viewers to consider poverty, racism, and injustice. In 1968 she left the order and moved to Boston. After 1970, her work evolved into a sparser, introspective style, influenced by living in a new environment, a secular life, and her battles with cancer. She remained active in social causes until her death in 1986. At the time of her death, she had created almost 800 serigraph editions, thousands of watercolors, and innumerable public and private commissions. - from The Corita Art Center, http://corita.org/ About the print: "Lawrence has written of Jesus coming "into touch" with life after his crucifixion and mission, and the great cosmic atonement at last accomplished by being in touch with the life forces of nature and finally with a woman. With her sensitive ability to combinate, Corita puts things and people very much in touch here, in touch with all the light that there is in darkness and all the darkness that exists even in the seeming light." - Celia T. Hubbard, Director of The Botolph Group, Inc. (Published in International Graphic Arts Society, subscription catalogue, series #85, September, 1969). Transcription: "but the man looked at the vivid stars before dawn, as they rained down to the sea, and the dog-star green toward's the sea's rim. And he thought: "How plastic is it, how full of curves and folds like an invisible rose of dark-petalled openness that shows where the dew touches its darkeness! How full it is, and great beyond all gods. How it leans around me, and I am part of it, the great rose of space. I am like a grain of its beauty. Now the world is one flower of many petalled darknessess, and I am in its perfume as in a touch." " This is the great atonement, to be in touch..." - D. H .

U.S. involvement in WWII had helped to create jobs so the federal government’s assistance through WPA programs was not as necessary. Some artists and critics questioned the genuine artistic expression of art created through government programs, and Abstract Expressionism eventually dominated the art scene. Artist Stuart Davis criticized the art of Regionalists and Social Realists in a 1939 essay:<BR/><BR/>Domestic naturalism, the chicken yard, the pussy cat, the farmer’s wife, the artist’s model, Route 16A, natural beauties of the home town, etc., became the order of the day in painting. And on the reverse side of the popular trend toward domestic naturalism were found the more trying aspects of man’s struggle with nature and society, such as the picket line, the Dust Bowl, the home-relief office, the evicted family, etc. In mural painting it wasthe same thing—American history-in-costume,<BR/>cowboys and Indians, frontier days, picturesque industrial landscape, etc.; and on the other hand, Mexican muralism, the allegorical worker of bulging muscle and Greco-Roman profile, the fetish of fresco, etc. … What happened to the Armory Show and modern or abstract art?<BR/><BR/>Ralph Fabri’s 1948 print, Americana, has it all. The U.S. Capitol dome shines in the center of the American scene, between towering smokestacks and skyscrapers of industrial cities and factories. A boxing match, the innovation of the electric lights of the theater, the Ferris wheel, and a car advertisement sit just beyond the cowboys and Indians of the frontier, and the hardworking farmer cultivating the land. Miss America, the artist’spalette, books and music, frame the scene.<BR/><BR/>Fabri, born in Budapest, Hungary, immigrated to the U.S. in 1921, and became a naturalized citizen six years later.

From 1903-1908, Kollwitz worked on a series of seven prints that was based on an historical event, the German peasant's revolt of 1522-25. Exploited by their feudal masters, the peasants rose up to protest their situation. The noblemen united to squelch the uprising, yet not before the peasants killed a number of their oppressors. The work of theologian and historian Wilhem Zimmermann, who wrote the <i>General History of the Great Peasant's War [Allgemeine Geschichte des grossen Bauernkrieges]</i>, probably inspired the series. As in the <i>Weaver's Rebellion</i>, Kollwitz lays the blame for the event on the workers' miserable working and living conditions. Yet, she takes this one step further focusing on the process by which the individual develops a consciousness of his suffering a desire to change his fate. The series was made out of order and later arranged to compose a rough narrative sequence. Here, Black Anna is seen from the front, bending over a dead figure. Again, the artist focuses not on the face, but on the woman's large hands, which gently caress one of the slain workers. This print is a "re-strike", an impression printed after the original edition was no longer available. The re-strike is pulled from the original plate, but someone other than the artist or original printer was responsible for making the impression.

Label for "Beyond Cubism: European Modern Prints, 1920s-1960s", La Salle University Art Museum, March 7 – June 15, 2018: Joan Miró was born in Barcelona. His family encouraged him to study business as well as art, but he eventually devoted himself entirely to his art, training at various art academies in Barcelona. While he would always find his grounding and inspiration in the Catalonian countryside, he found it very provincial and, starting in 1920, split his time between there and Paris—a pattern disrupted by the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). Miró was a major proponent of Surrealism, and his Paris studio was next to that of André Masson, another Surrealist artist. André Breton, the founder and spokesman for the Surrealists, called Miró "the most Surrealist of us all." However, Miró never embraced the automatism advocated by Breton, and when Miró and Max Ernst were invited by Sergei Diaghilev to contribute to the Ballets Russes' <i>Romeo and Juliet</i>, Breton staged a protest considering the collaboration too bourgeois. Miró’s work changed over the course of his career, shifting from an early Fauvist style, to Magical Realism in the early 1920s, to Surrealism starting around the mid-1920s, in which representational elements evolve into simplified biomorphic shapes, essentially personal ideographs, often achieved using Surrealist methods of “automatism.” This untitled lithograph comes from Miró's late career. -Thomas Blum, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Mathematics and Science", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Benjamin D.

The original artwork was temporarily installed in the Courtyard Rose Compass in Philadelphia’s City Hall and highlighted in the city-wide Open Source project in October 2015.<BR/><BR/>"<SPAN STYLE="font-style:italic">Eres Mi Tod</SPAN>o" are words written by Maria's husband who is currently incarcerated and in the process of deportation. After being deported from Philadelphia, he attempted to cross the border again to be reunited with his family. He was caught by U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Texas and now has 6 months left to his three year jail sentence in California. Once his sentence is over, he will be sent back to Mexico. Maria continues to live in Philadelphia with her five children. She speaks about the difficulty of deciding whether to stay or to leave for Mexico to be reunited with her husband. <BR/><BR/>In preparation for this project, I worked with undocumented youth and families in partnership with Juntos, a Latino immigrant community-led organization fighting for human rights as immigrants, parents, youth, and workers. I collected audio stories from undocumented families that reveal how their lives changed before and after deportation. <BR/><BR/>My project reflects the stories of immigrant families that have found Philadelphia to be a safe place to provide a better future for their children. Very much like the Irish, Jewish, and Italian immigrants that made their way to the city, these families see this new home as a place of progress and safe haven, where their children will grow to be the next generation of Philadelphians (like myself, a child of immigrants) that will contribute to the livelihood and fabric of this city. Philadelphia is a sanctuary for immigrants and honoring their contributions to the growth of the city is crucial especially during the current national anti-immigrant climate. For these reasons, this project is important because it offers a platform to tell the stories of our undocumented immigrant communities that are often unheard in our city.<BR/><BR/>—Michelle Angela Ortiz<SPAN STYLE="font-family:'Times New Roman';font-size:12pt"><BR/></SPAN><SPAN STYLE="font-family:'Segoe UI'"><BR/></SPAN></SPAN>", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "Artwork © Michelle Angela Ortiz", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/16-G-3751.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/16-G-3751.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/16-G-3751.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/16-G-3751.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "5784", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 5348, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/5348", "Disp_Access_No" : "16-G-3754", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "1733", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "1733", "_Disp_End_Date" : "1733", "Disp_Title" : "Tantalus's Torment, from The Temple of the Muses", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Bernard Picart", "Sort_Artist" : "Picart, Bernard", "Disp_Dimen" : "13 3/4 x 9 3/4 in.

There he met Susan Weil (briefly his wife) whom he followed to Black Mountain College, where he studied under Josef Albers. The Bauhaus-inspired curriculum encouraged an openness about what constituted art, what materials might be used, and how artists might collaborate—lessons that Rauschenberg would carry throughout his career. Rauschenberg claimed to have an "insatiable curiosity" and worked in many artistic areas, including painting, sculpture, performance, technology, photography, and printmaking. He also loved to collaborate, saying, "It seems that in theater and printmaking, every individual that you add to a project will result in ten times as many new possibilities." Rauschenberg gave two of his prints the same title, More Distant Visible Part of the Sea: one from 1979 featuring scissors, and this one from 1983 featuring umbrellas. He often included images of umbrellas, parasols, and parachutes in his art, at least as far back as the mixed media “combine” work, Charlene, from 1954. By the time he created this print, he had left the frenzy of New York City for the tranquility of Captiva Island, Florida. The serenity he found may be reflected in some of images used in this work, such as the sunset and the native flora represented.

Description from the International Graphic Arts Society bulletin, series no. 69, May 1966: "IGAS feels privileged in releasing to its members a wood-engraving done cooperatively by Ben Shahn and Stefan Martin. This is a venture rare in the history of American graphics. Wood-engravings are cut with burins on the highly polished end-grain of a very dense and refractory wood - in this case, South American boxwood. Shahn has provided the image - Martin has engraved the block and supervised the printing. Both artists have signed the prints. Until the invention of photo-mechanical engraving, all illustrations in newspapers and books were created and printed in this way. In recent times this practice has been almost wholly abandoned.

Ming Dynasty, 1368-1644, Wanli period, 1573-1620 This dish is typical of blue and white porcelains made in the late Ming Dynasty for both domestic and foreign markets. The design was so popular that it was commonly copied by the Japanese starting in the early 17th century, and later by the Dutch at Delft. Dishes in this style were also popular in the court of the Ottoman Turks and a wide variety of them survive at the Topkapi Saray Museum, Istanbul. The pattern is composed of an outer rim band of eight alternating stylized flowers and Buddhist symbols, separated by eight diaper and pearl string panels. The interior is decorated with a bird standing on a rock beneath a flowering bush within an octagonal floral reserve. The obverse of the dish is decorated with eight perforated circular panels separated by three vertical lines. - Brian A.

The banner in the background, “Philadelphia Union Workers,” situates the scene in Philadelphia. Signs reading “To Hell with Charity” and “[Wo]rkers [De]mand Free […] Water and [Elect]ricity” suggest possible connections with the burst of union activity that took place around 1935, with numerous organized union strikes and the emergence of the Com­mittee for Industrial Organization (CIO). On the left, a fiery speaker stands next to an American flag, his ex­tended arm pointing into the center of the composition; while a mounted policeman on the far right looks in­wards over the crowd of protestors. In the foreground, a smiling woman appears to beg for money. Wearing an armband in support of the strike, she holds out a cup to a gentleman who reaches into his pocket for coins. <BR/><BR/>Klare Scarborough<BR/>Director and Chief Curator, La Salle University Art Museum</SPAN></SPAN>", "Dedication" : "Purchased with funds provided by the Art Angels", "Copyright_Type" : "", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "PRINTS", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/13-G-3578.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/13-G-3578.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/13-G-3578.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/13-G-3578.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "2398", "Image_Type" : "", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 4108, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/4108", "Disp_Access_No" : "15-G-3682", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "2013", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "2013", "_Disp_End_Date" : "2013", "Disp_Title" : "Palabras de Arena (Words of Sand)", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Claudia Bernardi", "Sort_Artist" : "Bernardi, Claudia", "Disp_Dimen" : "23 3/4 x 17 1/2 in.
