Ars longa: Rembrandt catalog receives three honors
Museum exhibitions have lives lasting well past their public display – in artistic inspiration, viewers’ memories, online portals and print catalogs.
One such catalog, produced by the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art in 2017, is now a multiple award winner. “Lines of Inquiry: Learning from Rembrandt’s Etchings” most recently was honored with the College Art Association’s 2019 Alfred H. Barr Jr. Book Award for Smaller Museums, Libraries, Collections and Exhibitions. Award winners will be presented during the CAA’s 107th Annual Conference, Feb. 13-16 in New York City.
The catalog also received the 2018 Henry Allen Moe Prize for Catalogs of Distinction in the Arts, and an honorable mention for the 2018 International Fine Print Dealers Association Book Award.
Positioning Rembrandt van Rijn’s art and artistic practice as inspirational resources for research and teaching, “Lines of Inquiry” ran Sept. 23 to Dec. 17, 2017, at the Johnson Museum, and Feb. 6 to May 13, 2018, at the Allen Memorial Art Museum at Oberlin College, co-organizer of the exhibit. It was co-curated by Andrew C. Weislogel, the Seymour R. Askin Jr. ’47 Curator of Earlier European and American Art at the Johnson Museum; and Andaleeb Badiee Banta, then at Oberlin.
The catalog includes articles by the curators and faculty researchers, including Weislogel and C. Richard Johnson Jr. (professor of electrical and computer engineering and a Jacobs Fellow in Computational Arts and Humanities at Cornell Tech) on collaborations with students on the related Watermark Identification in Rembrandt’s Etchings (WIRE) Project at Cornell.
