From the Pages of PAN: Art Nouveau Prints, 1895‒1900, Oct. 8, 2022‒Jan. 29, 2023. This exhibition features brilliant lithographs, etchings, and woodcuts by renowned artists such as Auguste Rodin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Signac, Georges Seurat, Käthe Kollwitz, Peter Behrens, and Aubrey Beardsley, among others. PAN was an avant-garde periodical that sought to represent an overview of cutting-edge international graphic art. Works encompass the art nouveau movement, expressionism, post-impressionism, and symbolism and give a view of both artistic and intellectual life of this period.

This exhibition is from the collection of the Richard H. Driehaus Museum and organized by Landau Traveling Exhibitions. The Hagerstown exhibition was made possible by the generous support of Howard Kaylor; Dr. Robert & Marjorie Hobbs; James and Melinda Marsden; Karen Spessard; and Visit Hagerstown-Washington County, MD.
