RICHMOND, VA.- The Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art, University of Richmond Museums, presents Seen in Solitude: Robert Kipniss Prints from the James F. White Collection, on view through September 24, 2006. Seen In Solitude: Robert Kipniss Prints from the James F. White Collection features a selection of lithographs, drypoints, and mezzotints created in the past forty years by American contemporary artist Robert Kipniss (born Brooklyn, New York, 1931). Already an accomplished painter, in 1967 Kipniss was encouraged to accept a print commission and enrolled in a six-week printmaking class at Pratt Graphics Center, New York. He quickly found an affinity with lithography and immersed himself in the medium for the next twenty-three years. In 1990, Kipniss began working with mezzotint, an intaglio technique that he describes as "drawing with light."

Kipniss' often repeated subjects -- rolling landscapes, looming trees, still lifes and interiors -- hark back to his youth in northwest Connecticut and suggest solitude, contemplation and reverie. Kipniss has stated that the "central impetus of my work is the endless range of feelings and thoughts evoked by the basic act of seeing, usually in isolation, and with a haunting intensity."

Organized by the New Orleans Museum of Art, this is the first museum retrospective dedicated solely to Robert Kipniss' graphic art. Dan Piersol, Deputy Director of Museum Programs, Mississippi Museum of Art, curated the exhibition. An illustrated exhibition catalogue with an essay by Piersol was published by the New Orleans Museum of Art and is available for purchase. At the Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art, this exhibition has been made possible in part with funds from the Louis S. Booth Arts Fund.

The exhibition will travel to Orlando Museum of Art, Florida; the Marian Koogler McNay Art Museum, San Antonio; and the Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson.
