The Bowdoin College Museum of Art exhibition Printmaking ABC: In Memoriam David P. Becker, a selection of masterly prints from Albrecht Dürer and Rembrandt to David Hockney and Sol LeWitt, is drawn from the collection of 1,500 prints given and bequeathed by alumnus and former trustee David Becker, who was an internationally recognized print scholar whose expertise encompassed drawings, illustrated books and writing manuals.

Becker and the exhibition, which introduces visitors to the techniques, themes and stylistic developments of western printmaking since the Renaissance, are the focus of the Portland Press Herald article “The Case for the Fine Print.”
