    Showcasing twenty-five prints from the Mead's collection, Paper Landscapes: Prints of the American City and Countryside, 1820-1920,builds on discoveries made by the exhibition's curator, Georgia Barnhill--curator emerita of graphic arts at the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, Massachusetts--during her June 2013 Mellon Faculty Seminar, which examined American nineteenth-century lithographs and engravings. Among the exhibition's many exciting surprises is a monumental color engraving rediscovered by Barnhill: Charles Mottram's 1855 New York, which reproduces a design by John William Hill; this breathtaking, bird's-eye view of the busy port has been conserved for the exhibition. On view October 3, 2014-January 3, 2015
