THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM


Prints by modern American and European artists


Beyond this corridor is the Print Gallery, which was organized in 1914 and contains selections from an entire collection of between 3,000 and 4,000 prints by modern American and European artists.

There are a number of good examples by Whistler and Pennell.

In a small room is an exhibit of print processes—tools, blocks, and the plates made from them.

An etching press has been installed for the free use of the public.

At the end of the gallery is the Museum library of about 22,000 volumes and an interesting picture file available for use in the Public Schools.

There is an auditorium seating about 1,500. Motion pictures are occasionally shown.
