Drawn largely from the private collection of Albert and Lorraine Kligman, this exhibition includes surrealist-inspired compositions for which Leon Kelly is best known.

La Manière Anglaise: Mezzotints from the Permanent Collection

Although the mezzotint process flourished first in the Netherlands, by the 1750s the technique came to be known as la manière anglaise—the English manner. The prints in this exhibition range from Dutch and British efforts from the height of mezzotint production to examples by artists who revisited the process in the twentieth century as a means of generating original images.
