Catalogue of an exhibition at the Trout Gallery, February 19 - April 17, 2010.

Senior Exhibit, Art and Art History Department, Prof. Melinda Schlitt, Dickinson College.

Elusive Imprints: Translating the Unseen in the Twentieth Century, encompasses the related but diverse stylistic categories of Symbolism, Surrealism, German Expressionism, and Magic Realism. Above all, this exhibition challenges the viewer to respond to what he or she sees through an active engagement with imagery that is indirect, often personal, and difficult to understand at first glance.
