This exhibition celebrated the FDAC's 50th anniversary with a selection of more than 70 prints and photographs by artists including Rembrandt, Manet, Heckel, Johns, Watkins, Stieglitz, and many more. All of the works on view were purchased through the generosity of, and fundraising by, members of the FDAC.
