This is our twenty-fourth web exhibition (all the previous ones are still posted) and, like a number of the others, covers a broad range of time, style and medium, in this case from classical, seventeenth-century portraiture to twentieth-century WPA images, from engraving through mezzotint and lithograph to poster paints.  But the focus is entirely on the theater: the actors and actresses, the scenes, the productions, the audiences, the programs, the dressing rooms.  Some of the artists included are clearly among the greats, others are minor figures or, once known, now all but forgotten.  But such a mixture has its point: it directs attention to the images themselves rather than the names, to the conception and execution of a particular subject and the degree of success achieved.  And one may find that the most satisfying image is not always by the best-known artist.
