Smart Museum etching exhibit featured in The University of Chicago Magazine

The University of Chicago Magazine spoke with art historian and literary scholar Elizabeth Helsinger, who is the curator the Smart Museum‘s exhibit “The ‘Writing’ of Modern Life.” The exhibit examines the ballooning popularity of the art of etching between 1850 and 1940. Visitors to the museum can explore “how etchers’ visions of modernity echoed those of the era’s writers: Dickens, Hardy, Balzac, Woolf, Poe, Baudelaire.” For more information, read the full article at The University of Chicago Magazine.
