since our last visit, the museum has been gifted a collection of prints by Gabor Peterdi. after wandering, bored, through the museum's pride and joy post-impressionist collection, there is a little room featuring an incredible collection of prints from throughout peterdi's career. his influences are obvious at different times of his career. and his printmaking techniques feel very raw and his surfaces are just awesome. this was worth the trip alone. especially since visiting this museum is always free.
