Eric Carle Prints and Paper

April 2 - September 12, 2010
West Gallery
This exhibition explores some of Eric Carle’s early prints. From his days in advertising, Carle employed linoleum cuts among other media to achieve visual variety. Some of the first books in which he used the lino-cut technique reflected his emphasis on bold shape and design so associated with his collage technique, albeit without the color. Work from his early and later books are shown in a thematically and stylistically connected display.
