Another of collector John Bonebrake’s favorite lithographers was Rivière, whose 67 prints fill a gap in the museum’s collection. A prolific and inventive printmaker, Rivière was tremendously influenced by the novel compositional strategies, striking colors, blatant flatness, focus on line, depiction of seasonal changes, and the fugitive effects of weather in ukiyo-e, Japanese color woodcuts, that he avidly collected.
