Founded in 1965 by the late Alfred Isselbacher, and now under the direction of Audrey Isselbacher, former associate curator of prints and illustrated books at the Museum of Modern Art, the gallery has consistently focused on late 19th and early 20th century European and American modern master prints. Past exhibitions have included the complete posters of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Henri Matisse’s Jazz, Pablo Picasso: 50 Linocuts, and print retrospectives by Jean Dubuffet, and Alexander Calder.

As is our tradition, we try to present as interesting a cross-section as possible of high quality prints of late 19th and 20th Century artists, both from America and abroad. This year we are covering a sequence of time spanning the late 1890s (with works by Signac, Bonnard and Vuillard) right up through Pop Art (a wonderful hand-colored work by Tom Wesselmann) and a particularly memorable "film still" by Cindy Sherman. Within the intervening years--especially the 1920s through the 1950s--we have a very complete array of "Modern Masters" comprising: Victor Brauner, Chagall, Delvaux, Dubuffet, Max Ernst, Valentine Hugo, Marie Laurencin, Magritte, Man Ray, Matisse, Miro, Morandi, Picasso, Rouault, Kurt Seligmann and Dorothea Tanning. We hope you will derive great pleasure from viewing this diverse and quite entertaining presentation, and look forward to seeing you at the fair.
