Faber, David

 

The Assistant Curator, Allison Slaby, at the Reynolda House Museum of American Art engaged me for the task of media identification” of two original fine art prints that were given as gifts to the Reynolda House Museum Print Collection.   They were suspiciously documented as lithographs with a question mark.  These two works were done by artist Nicholas Krushenick and were in fact thought to be lithographs by the donor, as stated in the documentation accompanying the two prints.

 

After examining the two prints, they are, however, both silkscreen and not lithographs.  I therefore wrote and submitted a curatorial explanation of the physical surfaces as proof of the two images being silkscreen (also serigraphs or stencil) fine art prints and not executed by any other fine art printmaking medium.
