The Cincinnati Art Museum’s Print and Drawings collection includes prints, posters and illustrated books from the fifteenth century to the present, including a strong representation of twentieth-century Japanese prints. At its core is an old master collection donated by Herbert Greer French with notable examples of master printmakers Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt van Rijn, William Blake and José Francisco y Lucientes Goya. The Albert P. Strietmann collection of color lithography features the work of Toulouse Lautrec and a cross section of international printmakers from the 1950s and early 1960s. The collection is strong in the work of American printmakers from Frank Duveneck and James Abbott McNeill Whistler to Jim Dine.
