Lyric Thinking, the 2022–2023 Model Research Collection at Bass Library, explores how thinking through and with lyric poems takes place across diverse languages, communities, and spaces throughout the historical record. The Model Research Collection is a curated collection housed on the Courtyard Level of Bass Library. It is meant to show the breadth and depth of the collections of Yale’s libraries through the lens of one researcher’s experience in exploring their area of inquiry.

October 22, 2022 - May 14, 2023 German Prints in the Later 1400s

The origins of printmaking are obscure, but two principal types flourished in the 1400s: woodcuts (printed from the surfaces of wooden blocks carved in relief) and engravings (printed from the recesses of grooves cut into copper plates). The names of many early practitioners are unknown, but a few masters became leaders in the field. Israhel van Meckenem (c. 1445-1503) was the first identifiable professional engraver. Martin Schongauer (c. 1440/53–1491) was the first great artist to make engravings. The 1490s brought a crescendo with the youthful Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528), whose breathtaking skill and spectacular imagination fully established printmaking as a high art.

October 28, 2022 - April 16, 2023 Plotting Power: Maps and the Modern Age

Maps make the world. Mirrors of our loftiest dreams and deepest fears, maps draw literal lines between "you" and "me," "us" and "other," more often reflecting how we see it than how it is. Plotting Power: Maps and the Modern Age follows the use of map-like imagery for political, commercial, and other purposes in the first half of the 20th century, when the possibilities of travel and technology opened new horizons for global ambition. Featuring Wolfsonian collection items including paintings, prints, posters, industrial design, and graphic materials, the exhibition traces how maps and other representations of geography were shaped by design strategies, diverse agendas, and signature stories of modern history.

December 8, 2022 - June 4, 2023 In Light of Rome: Early Photography in the Capital of the Art World, 1842–1871

“In Light of Rome” comprehensively explores the contribution made by the cosmopolitan art center to the early history of photography and traces the medium’s rise there that forever changed the way we perceive the Eternal City. The exhibition ranges from 1842 to 1871, from the earliest pioneers—the French daguerreotypist Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey and the Welsh calotypist Calvert Richard Jones—to the work of the Roman School of Photography and its successors, among them James Anderson and Robert Macpherson of Britain; Frédéric Flachéron, Firmin Eugène Le Dien, and Gustave Le Gray of France; and Giacomo Caneva, Adriano de Bonis, and Pietro Dovizielli of Italy. Featuring 112 works, many never before seen publicly, by nearly fifty transnational photographers, this presentation and its accompanying catalogue will expand our understanding of Rome’s place in the evolution of early photography, and the pivotal role it played in the refinement and technical development of the nascent medium in the nineteenth century.
