Learn about artists Isabel Bishop, Reginald Marsh, and Raphael Soyer through their prints in After Ashcan: The 14th Street School, presented in connection with the exhibition The Ashcan School and The Eight: “Creating a National Art.” These 20th-century artists, who had studios on 14th Street in Lower Manhattan and were taught by Ashcan artists, similarly focused on subjects from everyday urban life, depicting scenes around Union Square and the Bowery District in the 1920s and 1930s.
