About The Exhibition
Monotypes were first made in the 17th century and later revived in the 1870s by Edgar Degas, a master of the technique. Introduced to America in 1880, the monotype was taken up by John Sloan and Maurice Prendergast. Works by these artists, as well as a 17th-century monotype by Anthonis Sallaert, will serve as highlights in this exhibition of the finest monotypes from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s collection.
