Word and Image presents highlights from the Museum's collection of post-war American prints. It complements two exhibitions--Ben Shahn: For the Sake of A Single Verse and The Ariel Poems.
For the Sake of a Single Verse is a portfolio of twenty-two lithographs from the Haggerty Museum of Art’s collection created by artist Ben Shahn. The prints illustrate select passages from Rainer Maria Rilke’s only novel, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge (1910).
The Ariel Poems are a series of pamphlets published by Faber and Gwyer and later by Faber and Faber, an independent publishing house in Great Britain. Conceived as a collaboration between poets and artists, each pamphlet was authored and illustrated by different individuals. Many of the poets are well-known today, but perhaps the most significant of these is T. S. Eliot.
