Bruce Museum opens new exhibition featuring prints of Old Masters and works from the 19th century
James Abbott McNeill Whistler (American, 1834-1903), Limehouse, 1859. Etching, printed in black on laid paper. From “The Thames Set”. Collection of Dr. Dorrance T. Kelly.
GREENWICH, CT.- One of the most distinguished local collections of prints has been assembled by Dr. Dorrance T. Kelly.

While his collection has been comprised primarily of American 20th-century prints and prints by John James Audubon, in recent years he has also collected Old Master and 19th-century works extensively.

These encompass splendid sheets by the great German printmaker Albrecht Dürer, including a rare etching, woodcuts, and engravings of such iconic images as his Nemesis of 1502.

Dr. Kelly's Dutch prints include several of the rare engravings after the influential Adam Elsheimer by Hendrik Goudt and no less than 28 images by the highly experimental printmaker Rembrandt van Rijn, ranging from early works of the 1630s to mature impressions from the 1650s.

Dr. Kelly's 18th-century holdings include sheets by the great Italian artists Canaletto and Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo and several fine sheets from Los Caprichos by the renowned Spanish artist Francisco de Goya y Lucientes.

Completing the collection is a group of etched cityscapes and figure studies by the American artist James Abbott McNeill Whistler (Pictured above: Limehouse, 1858).

Together the collection attests to the quality of some of the greatest printmakers in Western Art.

The exhibition – on view from June 15 through August 18, 2013 – is accompanied by a scholarly catalog and will be complemented by a series of educational and public programs.

The Bruce Museum is grateful to Dr. Dorrance T. Kelly for sharing this extraordinary collection with the public.
