Title: The Critic or Nick's Artist: Jerome Kaplan Date:1947 Media: black and white Dimensions: 17.75 X 14.5 (sheet) Historical Jazz Music piece (I believe this is of Nick's Tavern a Greenwich Village landmark Jazz musical venue in New York City. Jerome Kaplan (1920-1997) taught printmaking at the Philadelphia College of Art, now the University of the Arts, for 40 years. His works are in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, National Gallery, Library of Congress, and Museum of Modern Art. He was closely connected with The Print Club for 40 years, and was awarded the Lessing J. Rosenwald Prize at the Philadelphia Printmakers Annual in 1951, Max Katzman Prize in 1956, and the Experts Choice in 1963. Kaplan had a close relationship with the Print and Picture Collection and was a close friend of former curator Robert Looney. As part of The Artists of The Print Center, the exhibition cases inside the Print and Picture Collection have been filled with the works of more artists associated with The Print Center, including Cynthia Back, Morris Blackburn, Ed Colker, Lois M. Johnson, Jerome Kaplan, Jenny Lynn, and Ron Rumford. Along with his colleagues Benton Murdoch Spruance and Samuel Maitin, he helped establish Prints in Progress, a program designed to bring printmaking directly to the young people of Philadelphia’s public schools through demonstrations in which they could participate. Conceived by Walter L. Wolf, the program was then under the auspices of the Philadelphia Print Club. Jerome Kaplan was a graphic artist in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who served as chair and professor of the Printmaking Department at the University of Arts. His art can be found in several museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the British Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art and Woodmere Art Museum.
