From Childs Gallery’s repository of works on paper, Graphic Prose: Illustration Art of the 19th and 20th Centuries, is an exhibition focused on fine prints and drawings originally created to be produced in books, magazines, posters, and advertisements. Historically, the art of illustration is closely linked to the processes of printing and publishing, which rapidly became more efficient and economical during the 19th and 20th centuries. In presenting a wide range of illustrations from this period, Graphic Prose not only explores these technological advances but also the social history and artistic styles of these periods.
