The Fine Art Print Show, one of the largest and most celebrated art fairs for the fine art print. This show takes place at the Javits Center in New York. At the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center (Oct. 26-27, noon-8 p.m.; Oct. 28 noon-6 p.m.). This show is a celebration of printmaking, more than 70 presenters have come to exhibit work by artists like Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Edward Hopper. Those who go to the exhibit can learn about the medium’s history, appreciate some of its masterworks and, this year, compare a black-and-white lithograph of Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” with Andy Warhol’s colorful screen print of it.
This show was first established with the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation, this annual exhibit aims to honor and raise knowledge about the unique ways in which different artists use printmaking in their artistic practice.
This whole idea was created by an intrigued interest in the inventiveness for printmaking and a longing for collecting art, Jordan Schnitzer began collecting prints in 1998. Today, his collection has more than 13,000 works and includes many of today’s most important contemporary artists. It has grown to be one of the country’s largest private print collections. The Foundation has organized over 110 exhibitions and has had art exhibited at over 150 museums. The Foundation also contributes to the field of artistic scholarship through the publication of exhibition brochures, texts and print catalog raisonnés.
Printmaking has a long and diverse history, many beautiful and outstanding works of art have come about through this art form.
