Library Co. of Phila.
Philadelphia ReVisions: The Print Department Collects: The Library Company of Philadelphia, March 28-August 26, 1983
Kenneth Finkel (au)
The prints, drawings, & photographs selected for this Library Company exhibition form part of the texture of Philadelphia from the middle of the 18th to the middle of the 20th century. The remarkably large number of recently-acquired pictures does not encompass the city’s total history, but it is not that kind of exhibition. It is an introduction to a growing collection of Philadelphia iconography. Curator Kenneth Finkel has selected, arranged, grouped & described some of the the Library Company’s lesser known & previously unseen Philadelphia pictures. Black & white illustrations.
