A new exhibition featuring prints by Pablo Picasso is being made available for circulation through 2024. Presented are 57 works created between 1923 and 1972 - etchings, lithographs and linocuts, plus one cancelled copper printing plate. An introductory essay by Eric Mourlot, grandson of Fernand Mourlot, one of Picasso’s most important printers, accompanies the exhibition. The works come from the collection of Timothy Collins of Los Angeles, CA.

Picasso was a major innovator in the medium of printmaking. He made prints throughout his career — his first in 1899, when he was still a teenager; his last in 1972, when he was 90. Experimenting all the while, he produced some 2,400 prints in total, in a wide variety of techniques, most notably etching, lithograph and linocut. Over the decades he worked with numerous print ateliers, including Arnera, Mourlot, Crommelynck, Frelaut, Lacouriere, Desjobert, and Fort.

A special feature of the Collins Collection is the number of proofs. These proofs illustrate the unique working relationship Picasso maintained with his printers and their ateliers and allows for the examination of the working process behind it. Their craftsmanship made Picasso's extensive and revolutionary experimentation with the media possible. In the six examples of Tete de Femme au Chapeau, (above) from the exhibition, we can see preliminary proofs in the various colors along with the final full color print.

Another highlight of the exhibition is a cancelled original copper printing plate from 1948, Femme au Chignon, along with a print pulled from the plate.

The exhibition was organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, CA. Exhibition dates are available beginning in September, 2021 - 2024.

Propagandist, arch manipulator, inciter, provocateur, these are all words used to describe the artist, Shepard Fairey, the man many hail as the originator of the modern urban art scene and an undeniable phenomenon.

FACING THE GIANT presents a survey of the last three decades of Shepard Fairey's work. The 30 selected artworks in the exhibition are 30 x 41-inch hand painted multiples - prints on unique collaged backgrounds with additional stencilling and embellishments - done in 2019.

Propagandist, arch manipulator, inciter, provocateur, these are all words used to describe the artist, Shepard Fairey, the man many hail as the originator of the modern urban art scene and an undeniable phenomenon. FACING THE GIANT presents a survey of the last three decades of Shepard Fairey's work.

The title ‘FACING THE GIANT’ references the giant of Fairey’s prolifically disseminated Obey Giant art campaign, but more enduringly, the giant issues and forces he confronts through his art.

FACING THE GIANT is a curated series of images chosen for their importance aesthetically and conceptually, and for addressing critical topics and themes frequently recurring throughout Fairey’s career. “This show is a reflection, not a retrospective, because I’m still very actively creating new art, but I like the idea of highlighting both the continuity and evolution of my art and concepts over 30 years.” – Shepard Fairey, 2019.

The Art & Science of
June Wayne

June Wayne conducted a lifelong exploration of the relationship between Art and Science. In doing so she also revolutionized print making and the textile medium, while fighting fearlessly for freedom of expression and the rightful inclusion of women and minorities in the art world. This new exhibition, which features an essay by esteemed Curator and Art Historian, Jay Belloli, entitled June Wayne: Art & Science, examines this relationship.

As the founder of the renowned Tamarind Lithography Workshop, Wayne brought lithography masters to the United States to collaborate with experimental artists in residence (1960-1970) at her Tamarind, Hollywood studio, including Louise Nevelson, Ed Ruscha, Charles White, David Hockney, Annie Albers, Ed Ruscha, Louise Nevelson, Sam Francis, Francois Gilot, Rufino Tamayo, Ruth Asawa, Bruce Conner and many others.

THE ART OF EVERTHING exhibition presents 80 works - paintings, prints, mixed media, and weavings, drawn from the archives of the June Wayne Estate. The exhibition will be presented at the Fullerton Museum Center, Fullerton, CA, in the Fall of 2024, in conjunction with the Getty's Pacific Standard Time Initiative which focuses on the "intersections of art and science in a global dimension". The exhibition is now available for scheduling to museums world wide through 2026.

Wayne’s work is represented in the permanent collections of dozens of major museums and private collections.

ARTST - ACTIVIST - VISIONARY presents examples of Romare Bearden’s influences as an artist of social conscience and action.

Drawn from the Romare Bearden Foundation Collection, the exhibition examines how he agitated for change through images and writing. Included are a diverse collection of original collage, watercolor, limited edition prints, reproductions, and rare archival material, including his magazine covers and editorial cartoons.

Portrait Drawings & Oil Sketches

from Jacques-Louis David to Lucian Freud

CONTEMPLATING CHARACTER is continuing its national tour through 2025. Featured are 81 rare portrait drawings and oil sketches, from the late 18th century to contemporary works. A catalog accompanies the exhibition.

The exhibition explores the evolution of portraiture from the end of the 18th century until the present. The invention of photography at the end of the 1830s freed creative artists from the necessity of providing mere likeness through their art, to the degree that Paul Delaroche said, “From today, painting is dead.” He was wrong–it simply freed artists from the chore of representation, allowing imagination and creativity to rule, as this exhibition clearly demonstrates.

José Guadalupe Posada

Legendary Printmaker of Mexico

José Guadalupe Posada’s images captured all aspects of daily life in Mexico City from 1889-1913, directly inspiring artists like Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco and over one hundred years later, he continues to impact countless artists creating today’s social movement imagery. Due to the scope of influence and timeless quality of Posada’s work he has been called prophetic and even the father of Mexican printmaking.

A wide representation of Posada’s work, including his famous Day of the Dead calaveras and the artist’s original printing plates, make up this unique and inspiring exhibition. Bringing together nearly sixty of the artist’s most iconic images, this exhibition is remarkable for its inclusion of rarely exhibited printing plates, many signed in the plate by Posada himself. In addition, the exhibition explores the relatively unknown relationship between the artist and Antonio Vanegas Arroyo, one Mexico City’s most popular publishers with whom Posada worked under, and collaborated with, from 1889 until his death in 1913. The exhibition is available for presentation through 2026.




The exhibition features 26 graphic works from three important series of prints done by Jacob Lawrence between 1971-1997. Included are his Hiroshima Series of 8 prints, the Genesis Series of 8 prints and 10 prints from the Toussaint L'Ouverture Series, Also included are text panels with an introductory exhibition essay, a chronology, and photos of the artist.

The exhibition includes an essay about Lawrence and his printmaking by Peter Nesbett. Nesbett is the Editor of Jacob Lawrence: The Complete Prints (1963-2000) / The Catalogue Raisonne.

Since his first published print in 1963 Jacob Lawrence has produced a body of prints that is both highly dramatic and intensely personal. In his graphic work, as in his paintings, Lawrence has turned to the lessons of history and to his own experience. From depictions of civil rights confrontations to scenes of daily life, these images present a vision of a common struggle toward unity and equality, a universal struggle deeply seated in the depths of the human consciousness.

From the Ralf C. Nemec Collection

Renowned for his block print book illustrations, particularly The

Complete Works of William Shakespeare and Moby Dick, Rockwell Kent worked in a variety of media, including oil painting, woodcuts, lithographs, drawings and ceramics.

This exhibition features 50 works by Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) drawn from the Collection of Ralf C. Nemec, the largest assemblage of Rockwell Kent prints in the world.




Presented are a selection of the ceramics created by Picasso in collaboration with George and Suzanne Ramie and the artisans at their Madoura pottery workshop in Vallauris, Southern France, between the years 1947 and 1971. Internationally famed for his paintings, sculpture, and graphics,

The exhibition features 40 ceramic works - plates, vases and pitchers, including 2 original ceramic works by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), plus original posters from previous exhibitions and photo murals of Picasso at work at the Madoura pottery.

Pablo Picasso was long intrigued by ceramics. After seeing the works of the Madoura potters at a crafts fair in 1946, he asked Georges and Suzanne Ramie, who operated the studio, to provide him with the opportunity to work with ceramics. From 1947 to 1971 the Ramies set aside space in their studio for Picasso to pot whenever he pleased. In return, Picasso allowed the Ramies to make and sell editions of ceramic pieces he produced at Madoura, and to retain all profits.

The exhibition features an essay and chronology of Picasso by Gerald Nordland, noted author and independent curator, and former Director of the San Francisco Art Museum.





The seventy works in this exhibition date from the late 1800s to 2002 and represent just a fraction of what is contained in the Harmon and Harriet Kelley Collection of San Antonio, TX, one of the country's major collections of African American art. Esteemed art historian, David Driskell, Professor Emeritus at the University of Maryland at College Park, calls the Kelley Collection "one of the finest that has been assembled tracing the history of African American art."

Golden went on to manage or assist with a number of the artists' large scale projects. Golden's remarkable collection reflects his friendship with and admiration of Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Over 125 original drawings, sculptures, collages and photographs lovingly trace their impressive careers. 




OF EUROPE, 1895-1900

PAN, the important German five-volume Art Nouveau periodical, is replete with plates, illustrations, color initials, vignettes and tail-pieces representing a multitude of processes of modern picture reproduction, including original lithographs, etchings, and woodcuts, and other original and near-original processes in black and white or full color.

Included are collection of brilliant graphic works by such French, Dutch, Belgian, German, English, and Swedish artists as Rodin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Signac, and Seurat; Van de Velde; Rops; Kollwitz and Behrens; Nicholson, Rothenstein, and Pennell; and Anders Zorn, among many others. PAN’s literary contributers included such figures as Nietzsche, Novalis, Mallarmé, Maeterlinck, Ibsen, and Verlaine.




In 1970 David Hockney and Petersburg Press released Six Fairy Talesa compilation of 39 etchings and the texts of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm’s fairy tales, including:

  • The Little Sea Hare,
  • Fundevogel,
  • Rapunzel, 
  • The Boy Who Left Home to Learn Fear,  
  • Old Rinkrank,
  • Rumpelstilzchen.

In this exhibition of 39 etchings illustrating the 6 fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm, Hockney has given each fairy tale his own interpretation. Rather than illustrating the stories literally, he has chosen vivid images to encapsulate a mood or detail. The etchings were drawn directly onto copper plates by Hockney between May and November 1969. It was a decade in which etching featured strongly for Hockney. As well as Grimms’ Fairy Tales, he made two other important series: A Rake's Progress (1961-3) and Illustrations for Thirteen Poems for CP Cavafy (1966).




FIFTEEN MINUTES features silkscreen prints and original recordings, ranging from spoken word to music and sound, created by a diverse roster of artists, writers and performers who knew, worked with, were associated with or were inspired by Andy Warhol. Included are Patti Smith, Ivan Karp, Billy Name, Ultra Violet, Lawrence Weiner, Bob Dylan, Carter Ratcliff, John Giorno, Vincent Fremont, Alexander Heinrici, Brigid Berlin, Christopher Makos, Yura Adams, Nat Finkelstein, Connie Beckley, Susan Breen, Path Soong, and Jeff Gordon.


This exhibition juxtaposes each artist’s 12 x 12 inch (album sized) visual image with an audio work created in homage to Warhol. For instance, Patti Smith’s poem, “Edie,” muses on the life and death of Warhol Superstar Edie Sedgwick. Nat Finkelstein’s screen printed photograph shows Warhol and Dylan in the Factory with one of Warhol’s Elvis paintings in the background. In his song, “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” Dylan critiques the Warholian notion of fame and success. Gordon’s screen print modifies one of Warhol’s Brillo Box sculptures as a visual analogy to his sound piece, which loops excerpts from a Warhol interview and lasts for the proverbial 15 minutes.




66 works in 39 frames, plus analytical statements culled from Albers' extensive writings and text panels. Josef Albers was one of the 20th Century's most influential and articulate artist/ theorists. Formulation: Articulation is an overview of Albers' lifetime oeuvre. Published in 1972 by Harry N. Abrams, New York, the works were chosen by Albers himself and produced in silk-screen under his supervision by Ives-Sillman. Two text panels are also included: an introduction to and a chronology of Albers by noted author, art historian and independent curator, Gerald Nordland.  This exhibition is an excellent introduction to one of the most influential theories of 20th Century art and is especially well suited for teaching galleries.
