Julius J. Lankes and the Art of the American Woodcut

Free Exhibit at Dickinson College
Julius J. Lankes is considered to be one of the country’s leading woodcut artists of the first half of the 20th century. He emphasized handcrafted prints and was part of a printmaking revival in England and the U.S. that started during the second half of the 19th century. The revival was part of the broader Arts and Crafts Movement and represented a conscious rejection of the mechanization of the Industrial Revolution. Lankes died in 1960.

The exhibit can be seen 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday- Saturday at the college’s The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts through Feb. 18.

Admission is free.
