Nostalgic Journey: American Illustration from the Collection of the Delaware Art Museum

October 28, 2006 - December 31, 2006

Nostalgic Journey includes the work of some of America’s most respected illustrators and documents the influence of printing technology on their images. Illustrations for books and periodicals have been an important part of the American visual experience for the last one hundred fifty years. They were created by at least fifteen thousand trained, professional artists, most of whose names are not to be found in the standard histories of art. Each of these images was reproduced thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of times, making these illustrations part of our national visual heritage. The exhibition was organized by the Delaware Art Museum and sponsored in part by WJBF-TV News Channel 6 and Jim Hudson Lexus of Augusta.
