Benefactor Joseph Bisignano ’58 has generously given the Museum another suite of prints by acclaimed, Argentina-born, American printmaker Mauricio Lasansky. 

 

The Kaddish suite displays Lasansky's renowned technical mastery of printmaking techniques, and its subject is the Jewish prayer of the same name, utilized here in memory of victims of Nazi concentration camps.
