The UWM Art Collection offers two high quality, affordable traveling exhibitions to museums and university art galleries. These exhibitions highlight works on paper from the 15th to 20thcentury.
The Nativity Traveling Exhibitions
The Nativity, the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, has been a principal subject in Western art since the 4th century. Images depicting the Nativity are based on narratives from the New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke and include the Annunciation, the Adoration of the Shepherds, the Adoration of the Magi and the Flight into Egypt.
The Nativity presents 16th through 18th century prints by Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt, Annibale Carracci, Adriaen Collaert, Christoffel Van Sichem II and others, whose scenes capture the humanity of the event.
Rembrandt Etchings: States, Fakes and Restrikes Traveling Exhibitions
Rembrandt, one of the most influential printmakers in the history of art, created etchings that offer a wide range of subjects — from incisive representations of scriptures to studies of street life. His prints possess comedy as well as sober social commentary and have influenced innumerable later printmakers.
This exhibition of 40 Rembrandt etchings examines the problem of authenticating Rembrandt’s etchings. The exhibition includes first state pulls from the artist’s lifetime and restrike prints from the 17th to 20th centuries.
