Marking the Millennium

November 24, 1999 - February 20, 2000


"End-of-the world" themes are explored in this selection of prints and drawings from the European collection. As the century draws to a close, apocalyptic visions express the sense fo crisis and anxiety experienced by many, while images of renewal and rebirth capture the utopian dreams of others.
