Beth Van Hoesen

February 1–May 19, 2013
MMA Pacific Street

San Francisco artist Beth Van Hoesen (1926–2010) spent a lifetime dedicated to drawing and printmaking to become one of the most prominent California printmakers of her time. Prolific and possessing a keen eye for detail, Van Hoesen’s humble renderings of animals, portraits, landscapes, and flowers seem reverently effortless. Courtesy of the E. Mark Adams and Beth Van Hoesen Adams Trust, this exhibition includes preparatory drawings, lithographs, etchings, drypoints, and aquatints.
