Many print exhibitions are good, and some are outstanding. A few are so exceptional they deserve a special note. "Mexico and Modern Printmaking," organized by Philadelphia Museum of Art and the McNay Art Institute, San Antonio, is in this category. The exhibition appeared in those two museums and the First Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville, and the Phoenix Art Museum, 2006-2008. Those who missed it should peruse the catalogue (See Reviews of Exhibition Catalogues and Other Articles on this website).

Mexican print enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that another important exhibition of Mexican prints will appear at the British Museum 22 October 2009 - 28 February 2010. The exhibition, comprised of 120 objects, will include illustrated books and posters. Entitled "Revolution on Paper, Mexican Prints, 1910-1960," the exhibition will coincide with "Moctezuma: Aztec Ruler," which runs from 24 September 2009 to 24 January 2010.

"The American Scene, Prints from Hopper to Pollock" opened at the British Museum in 2008. The exhibition was seen in London by more than 413,000 people, making it one of the most popular exhibitions ever shown at the British Museum. Those who missed it in London may see it in 2009 in Brighton or Manchester. The catalogue by Stephen Coppel is a must for print libraries, described by a reviewer as "excellent, packed with accessible information eloquently laid out around the illustrations…"

The British Museum plans an exhibition of American prints made after 1950. Details and dates will appear on this website.
