Paper Trail: Prints from the Chipstone Collection
While Chipstone is best known for its American furniture and British ceramics, this Milwaukee foundation also owns a collection of significant eighteenth and nineteenth-century prints. This exhibition uses Chipstone’s collection as the basis for exploring how the North American colonies and the new United States were presented and invented in print media.
