Christiane Baumgatner is a German artist, and this was her first museum exhibition in the United States. The work on view featured these large, amazing woodcuts, as well as photoengravings, aquatints, and photogravures. She works with images from television and film. She would take photographs of her television screen, often of war documentaries and use them as a starting point for her woodcuts. The helicopter image below is her artwork called "Manhattan Transfer," which was my favorite.
I also had the opportunity to view some of the Davis Museum's permanent collection of wonderful artwork from artists such as Andy Warhol, Louise Nevelson, Willem de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Jackson Pollock, and Al Held.
I'd definitely recommend a visit to The Davis Museum, located on the campus of Wellesley College. for more information, please visit their website: www.wellesley.edu/davismuseum
