Two for the Road: Ernest Roth and Andre Smith in Europe

Organized by guest curator Eric Denker, Senior Lecturer at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, this exhibition tells the story of two American printmakers who were friends for fifty years, Ernest David Roth (1879-1964) and Jules André Smith (1880-1959). Some of the two artists’ most remarkable work was inspired by their early travels together. The multiple sketching trips to Europe they made between 1913 and 1930 particularly attest to their close fellowship. This exhibition of over 100 works that follow their travels throughout Europe, includes 17 sketches, and two etched plates, as well as prints by their friend, artist John Taylor Arms.
