Reflections & Undercurrents: Ernest Roth and Printmaking in Venice, 1900-1940

By: Fairfield University

Reflections & Undercurrents features prints by the German-born American painter and etcher Ernest Roth (1879-1964) and his contemporaries, including John Taylor Arms (1887-1953) and Joseph Pennell (1860-1926), exploring the connections between the art they made in early 20th-century Venice. The exhibition includes over ninety works and embraces a range of media, including etchings, drawings, sketchbooks, and photographs as well as Roth's original print making tools. Organized by Dr. Eric Denker (Senior Lecturer, National Gallery of Art) and Dr. Philip Earenfight (Director, Trout Gallery, Dickinson College), this show complements In the Wake of the Butterfly: Whistler and His Circle in Venice, on view concurrently at the Bellarmine Museum of Art.
