Enrique Chagoya: The Headache, A Print After George Cruikshank

The Rosenbach Museum & Library invites the public to join us for an informal discussion about how two print makers, Enrique Chagoya and George Cruikshank inform the public through their work about important social issues of their time. Explore, compare and contrast the styles of a prolific and controversial print maker of the 21st-century and another from the 19th-century.

Set up much like the intimate venue of a print room with original work available for study to walk-in visitors over the course three days.

In a second room visitors are invited to hand-color a reproduction of Chagoya’s print, The Headache created for Philagrafika 2010. Chagoya’s Headache is a 21st century interpretation of George Cruikshank’s The Headache which is in the collections of the Rosenbach Museum & Library.

About the Rosenbach Museum & Library

The Rosenbach Museum & Library was the home of two brothers, Dr. A.S.W. and Philip Rosenbach. A.S.W. Rosenbach was a legendary dealer and collector of rare books and manuscripts, while Philip's expertise encompassed the fine and decorative arts. Founded in 1954 to preserve the two brothers' personal collections and company archive, the Rosenbach's holdings have continued to grow. The Rosenbach is a major cultural destination—a research center that is home to one of the nation's great collections of rare books and manuscripts, as well as a beautiful, historic townhouse filled with fine art and antiques.
