    Join us to celebrate this groundbreaking collaboration between the Davis and the American Antiquarian Society.

    Featuring some fifty French and American prints from the collection of the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, Mass., With A French Accent explores the French roots of American lithography. The exhibition and accompanying publication uncover several themes: the importance of French technology, the circulation and reproduction of French imagery, the stylistic contributions of French lithographic artists, and the reproduction of American genre paintings by French publishers for distribution in Europe and the United States.

    The exhibition was curated by Georgia Brady Barnhill ’66, Director of the Center for Historic American Visual Culture, and Lauren B. Hewes, Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Graphic Arts, both of the American Antiquarian Society, based on research supported by funds from The Florence Gould Foundation of New York.
