Dürer, Rembrandt, Tiepolo

The Jansma Print Collection from the Grand Rapids Art Museum

October 17, 2014–January 18, 2015

Spanning five centuries of printmaking, Dürer, Rembrandt, Tiepolo: The Jansma Print Collection from the Grand Rapids Art Museum will feature the complete Jansma collection, including works by Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo, Édouard Manet, and Max Pechstein, as well as a series of 21 engravings by William Blake, to underscore the Bible’s enduring influence on Western artists.

On view from October 17, 2014 through January 18, 2015, MOBIA’s installation will also feature Dürer’s woodcut print and accompanying block for The Martyrdom of St. Catherine of Alexandria (c. 1498) from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as other loans, to showcase the process and complexity of printmaking. A selection of rare bibles from the American Bible Society’s collection will be paired with each print series to further illustrate the breadth and range of the Collection—from a 15th-century German Bible displayed alongside the Dürer works to a 19th-century English Bible accompanying the William Blake series.

Established in 2005, The Jansma Print Collection comprises 57 etchings, engravings, and woodcuts, including the recently acquired Illustrations of the Book of Job (1825) by William Blake. The exhibition will reflect the Jansma family’s desire to bring together works representing the diverse styles and techniques, as well as outstanding level of ingenuity and skill exemplified in prints from the 16th- to the 20th-centuries.

 

Dürer, Rembrandt, Tiepolo is made possible by the generous support of Cate and Sid Jansma, Jr. and The Larry and Victoria Smith Foundation. Support for educational programs is provided, in part, by TD Charitable Foundation. Additional support from the Atrium Café by Gabriel’s.

Major support for MOBIA's exhibitions and programs is provided by American Bible Society and by Howard and Roberta Ahmanson. Support for operations is provided, in part, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
