Eadweard Muybridge, Animal Locomotion, Plate 44.

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Muybridge & Curtis considers the two vast photographic projects of the Gilded Age: Eadweard Muybridge’s Animal Locomotion (1887) and Edward Curtis’ The North American Indian (1917-1930). Working with heavy tripods, large wooden cameras and glass-plate negatives, Muybridge and Curtis made tens of thousands of negatives for their respective projects, and each of their projects included hundreds of photogravure prints. This exhibition of 46 prints, drawn from the museum’s permanent collection, considers the role turn-of-the-century photography played in scientific research and study. Prints from Animal Locomotion are a gift from Samuel Moyerman. Prints from The North American Indian are a gift from Angelo Brutico Jr. P’18.

Käthe Kollwitz, Die Gefangenen (The Prisoners), etching, 1908.

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

From 1903 to 1908, Käthe Kollwitz produced Bauernkrieg (Peasant War), a seven-print series that reveals the brutal treatment of peasants in 16th-century Germany, their rise to revolution and battle and their subsequent humiliation and death. Although based on historic events, the series anticipates tragedies that soon took shape across Europe. This exhibition is curated by Courtney Rogers ’17. Several works by Kollwitz were selected for The Trout Gallery's collection by student representatives of the museum’s advisory committee.
