"Etched in Memory: Women Printmakers from the Gladys Engel Lang and Kurt Lang Collection"
2001-02-09 until 2001-03-25
Frye Art Museum
Seattle, WA, USA

In their ground-breaking book, Etched in Memory: The Building and Survival of Artistic Reputation, distinguished sociologists Gladys and Kurt Lang examined the virtual disappearance from public and scholarly discussion of the names of many important women artists who played a major role in the Etching Revival of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The Langs, University of Washington professors emeriti, suggested a number of cultural, demographic, and societal reasons for the neglect of these talented and once-admired artists. At the conclusion of their study, they challenged their readers to look at the works and judge for themselves whether the forgotten women deserved their neglect. This selection of prints by many of these talented women, drawn from the Langs' extensive print collection, gives you an opportunity to judge for yourself, too.

An illustrated catalogue with an extended essay by Gladys and Kurt Lang on the fate of British and American women printmakers is available in the museum store.
