Organized by Jay McKean Fisher (Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs, Baltimore Museum of Art), the works on view range from etchings, aquatints, and monotypes, to lithography, woodcuts and linoleum cuts. Matisse as Printmaker provides a comprehensive examination of the artist’s relationship with printmaking and the role it played within his ideas and practice.
