"Landmarks in Print Collecting: Masterpieces from the British Museum" presented 115 masterworks from the British Museum's collection of over two million prints. This is the first exhibition from the British Museum ever to travel outside the United Kingdom. The exhibition examined in detail ten significant groups of acquisitions in the development of the British Museum's print collection over a period of nearly 250 years. Together, the works from these collections chronicled the history of Western printmaking as well as the history of collecting at the British Museum. The exhibition was organized by the British Museum in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Parnassus Foundation, and curated by Barry Walker, MFAH.
