ROSENWALD MEMORIAL EXHIBITION
Ruth Fine, formerly curator of Lessing J. Rosenwald’s Alverthorpe Gallery and now curator in the Department of Graphic Arts at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D. C., has organized an exhibition in honor of Rosenwald. Lessing J. Rosenwald: Tribute to a Collector opens at the National Gallery 21 February and runs through 9 May 1982.
With 100 works selected from the 22,000 pieces that Rosenwald collected during his lifetime, the exhibition will represent the range of Rosenwald’s interests in medieval manuscript illumination, fifteenth-century woodcuts and engravings, Blake, the impressionists, post-impressionists, and German expressionists, among others. Among the Blakes in the exhibition is The Vision of Queen Katherine (Butlin 549). A fully illustrated catalogue of the exhibition is available.
