Gauss’s glowing review of Dürer, Rembrandt, Tiepolo appeared on Arte Fuse on October 24, 2014. The piece  notes that the exhibition follows the success of Back to Eden and precedes MOBIA “rocking New York City with their Sculpture in the Age of Donatello show.” Daniel Gauss encourages museum-goers to visit MOBIA and notes the “amazing shows” it has presented for 10 years running. He offers a thoughtful overview of the rise of printmaking in the 15th century, and comments that the works by Dürer and Rembrandt (“one of the most amazing prints ever”) are particular favorites, along with the Manet print and Blake series. He concludes that “…you can spend a good chunk of meaningful time at this free show being dazzled by the technique and meaning of some amazing works.” The article is accompanied by four images of works in the show. Daniel Gauss attended the exhibition press preview and expressed how deeply impressed he is with MOBIA’s exhibitions and initiatives.
