Carl Zigrosser, the Museum’s first professional curator of prints, arrived in Philadelphia in December 1940 at age forty-nine, having spent the previous twenty-one years as director of exhibitions and art sales at the Weyhe Gallery in New York. Located at 794 Lexington Avenue, the Weyhe Gallery was an art bookshop-cum-gallery that became one of the foremost venues for contemporary American printmakers in the first half of the twentieth century. During his tenure at Weyhe, Zigrosser developed a stable of artists who showed regularly at the gallery, many of whose works he acquired in the 1920s and 1930s. Large and varied, the collection eventually made its way to the Museum.
