Both rare works of art missing from the Boston Public Library have been found inside the main branch where they were "misfiled," library President Amy Ryan said today.

The art was discovered in the library's print stacks just 80 feet from where they should have been, Ryan added.

We’re thrilled to have found these treasures right here at home,” Ryan, who announced her resignation yesterday amid the probe, said in a statement. “They were found safe and sound, simply misfiled."

Though “Dance: Movement, Rhythm, Spectacle” occupies just one large room (arranged to feel like three) at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, it seems to open windows in many directions. Its exhibits range from the 1890s to the 1980s, vividly demonstrating how radically that century brought change to social dance, dance theater and ideas of dance in art. Diversely diverse, the show, which opened this month, offers a panoply of artistic media (photographs, paintings, watercolors, prints, woodcuts, etchings, graphite drawings, lithographs and film), dancers of various races and a huge assortment of dance costumes.

Japanese prints were last shown as a group at the MFA during the 40th anniversary year in 2005, and the majority of the more than 40 works in this new exhibition are on view for the first time. One of the world’s great artistic traditions, Japanese prints are known for their technical accomplishment, superlative design, and sheer beauty.

The exhibition opens Saturday, May 9, and continues through Sunday, August 16. Director Emeritus Dr. John E. Schloder has curated the show with Stephanie Chill, M.A. He will introduce the works in a lecture on opening day at 3 p.m.

"Rembrandt: A Decade of Brilliance (1648-1658)" now at the Hoehn Family Galleries at the University of San Diego, teams a core group of outstanding etchings owned by local resident Robert Hoehn—one of the world’s foremost private collectors of Rembrandt prints—with distinguished examples from public and private collections in the U.S. and Europe. The show focuses on the years of Rembrandt’s most intense experimentation with etching, when the Dutch master harnessed the medium’s demanding technical processes to his artistic vision, particularly in his biblical narratives, creating some of the most ambitious and fully realized works in the history of printmaking. The show allows us to compare multiple versions of significant images side-by-side to tease out the specific procedures Rembrandt employed to achieve the resplendent effects of his greatest graphic masterpieces.

“Cheap, quick, and dirty, that's how I like it,” Robert Frank is said to have replied when he first heard about the plans for his exhibition at Museum Folkwang in Essen, Germany titled “Robert Frank, Books and Films, 1947-2014." Rather than present his works as pristine prints in a white cube atmosphere, the exhibition features Frank’s photographs on inkjet-printed rolls of newsprint, up to four meters long, glued directly to the hallways of the museum.

Frank’s status as a photographer is legendary, as is his skepticism about the established art market.

Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of the late Dr. Herbert J. Kayden of New York City and his daughter Joelle Kayden, Stanford MBA ’81, of Washington, D.C., the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University now holds one of the largest collections in any museum of the work of Jacob Lawrence (1917–2000). Lawrence is among the most important artists of the 20th century and is a leading voice in the artistic portrayal of the African American experience. Staunch supporters of Stanford and the Cantor’s educational mission, the Kaydens have gifted to the museum an unparalleled collection of 56 works by Lawrence and one by his wife, Gwendolyn Knight Lawrence. The gift is comprised of five paintings, 11 drawings, 39 prints and one illustrated book, all dating between 1943 and 1998 and all given in memory of Dr. Gabrielle H. Reem, who is Herbert Kayden’s wife and Joelle Kayden’s mother.

More than 200 prints by the American pop artist Jim Dine, featuring imagery including paintbrushes, bathrobes, tools and hearts, have been gifted to the British Museum.

The collection was the largest gift made to the museum’s prints and drawings department in 2014.

“It is very exciting,” said the museum’s curator of modern prints, Stephen Coppel, who was allowed to select from Dine’s entire oeuvre, starting in the 1960s.

“It was a very generous offer, given that he has made over a thousand prints,” said Coppel. “Choosing was fun. It took some time and there was a lot of backing and forthing, but it is a really great group of things.”
