Catalogue of an exhibition at the Trout Gallery, March 4- April 16 , 2016.

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

The thirty-two Italian drawings and prints from the Darlene K. Morris collection that comprise From Artist to Audience at The Trout Gallery constitute a variety and quality of artists, media, and subjects that could rival any of the exhibitions at the prominent museums listed above. Spanning from ca. 1490 to ca. 1770, these works were produced in the principal artistic centers of Italy, including Naples, Rome, Florence, Siena, Bologna, Parma, Ferrara, Venice, and Genoa. Virtually every medium in drawing and printmaking is represented here as well, from pen and ink, wash, gouache, black chalk, red chalk, and graphite, to woodcut, multiple woodblock, engraving, etching, and drypoint. An equally broad range in subjects, both secular and religious, accompany the diversity in medium: independent and multiple figure studies, preparatory drawings for paintings, representations of ancient sculpture, copies after paintings and other drawings, landscapes, allegories, figures of saints, biblical narratives, pastoral themes, prints in imitation of other prints, and visualizations of ancient Roman poetry.
