The artist’s print, “Tabula Rosa,” was included in this exhibition of prints from the Museum’s permanent collection that reflected various types of self-portrayal from the 1960s to the present, and one work that foreshadowed them all — F. Holland Day’s The Seven Words (1898).  Although each artist included took a different approach, all of the works presented intimate stories that explore some aspect of the self.
