The Unfinished Print, June 2 through August 15, 2004

For the first time in its history, The Frick Collection will host a major special exhibition this summer that is devoted solely to prints and the process of printmaking. This special presentation poses questions that have preoccupied artists, critics, and collectors for centuries: “When is a work of art complete?” and “When do further additions detract from the desired result?” These issues have a particular history in the graphic arts, where images are developed in stages and often distributed at various points in their making.
