Bertha Jaques: Botanicals

February 17 - May 21, 2006

Bertha Jaques was a cofounder of the highly influential Chicago Society of Etchers, established in 1910. A one time resident of Cedar Rapids (1885-1889), she created more than 450 different prints during her lifetime. This exhibition focuses on her color drypoint prints of botanicals, a subject matter that was to dominate the entirety of her photographic and printmaking career.

This exhibition was organized by the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art and made possible by the generous support of the Dows Family Charitable Trusts.
