New York-based sculptor Arlene Shechet is known for glazed ceramic sculptures that are off-kilter yet hang in a balance between stable and unstable, teetering between the restraint of intellect and the insistence of instinct.
Through his lithographs and posters, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec captured the heart of Parisian nightlife in dynamic cabaret and café-concert scenes. The Phillips Collection presents one of the foremost collections of the artist’s prints drawn from his most prolific years.
This special exhibition features 15 rarely seen silkscreen prints by Jacob Lawrence portraying the life of Toussaint L’Ouverture, the former slave turned revolutionary leader who led the fight for the liberation of Haiti during the French revolution.
