The Herman Graphic Arts Study Room
The drawing and print collection is central to the function of the Museum as a laboratory for the study of art. The collection, consisting of over 3,000 drawings and prints, was acquired through purchases and generous donations from Frederick and Lucy Herman, Ralph Wark, Patrick Hayes, Frauken Grohs Collinson, Ralph and Doris Lamberson and others. Included in these collections is one of the most comprehensive resources on American printmaker, Julius John Lankes.
Center for the Study of German Expressionism
Among the expansive print collection, the Museum also has a substantial holding of works by German Expressionist Hans Grohs. As a repository for Groh’s prints, watercolors and paintings, with additional German Expressionist artists, the Museum has an initiative for studying German Expressionism. Students and faculty have a first-hand opportunity to research a multitude of prints, paintings and drawings by notable artists of the movement.
