The National Gallery of Art has, at last count, 108,000 old master and modern prints, etchings, drawings, and other works on paper — by artists ranging from Albrecht Durer to Pablo Picasso. None of them is on permanent view. Out of sight doesn't mean inaccessible, however.
"What we've done with the Augsburg show has astonished even some German friends because we've been able to mount it almost entirely out of our own resources, having built up the collection over the course of time," says Mr. Robison. "In fact, the general director of all the museums in Augsburg wanted to borrow the exhibition — for Augsburg. But we already have three venues planned."
"On a piece-by-piece basis [prints] can be cheaper," acknowledges Mr. Robison, "but on an aggregate basis, prints can be quite expensive."
