Anatol Girs
Through November 29

The works of Polish book designer and publisher Anatol Girs (1904-1990), on view in the Sterling Memorial Library nave, are prized for their craftsmanship and clarity of design, as well as their relevance to the major world events of their time. His groundbreaking 1946 book of short stories, We Were in Auschwitz, grew out of his experience in the concentration camp. This display brings together works from Girs’s career both before and after the war. Alicia Nitecki, associate professor of English at Bentley College and translator of the 2000 English version of We Were in Auschwitz, gives a talk about Girs on October 11 in the Sterling Lecture Hall.

Well represented are such Romantic painters as John Robert Cozens, Thomas Girtin, John Sell Cotman, and J.M.W. Turner. The exhibit includes 82 of the most outstanding works collected by Hickman Bacon, and complementing the show is a small display that explores the techniques of watercolor painting as practiced in the early 19th century.
