Print Collection

The Wake Forest University Art Department Print Collection consists of original prints from the 15th century to the 21st century, by artists such as Chagall, Durer, Goya, Matisse, Picasso, and Rembrandt. It was begun by Dr. Sterling Boyd, the chair of the Art Department in 1970 and has been enriched by the generosity of the Mary Reynolds Babcock Fund as well as many individual donors.

The collection is housed in the A. Lewis Aycock Visual Resources Center in the Scales Fine Arts Center of Wake Forest University. The goal of the collection is to provide undergraduate students with examples of fine etchings, engravings, lithographs, and woodcuts by some of history’s most significant artists to study first hand.
