The Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College Art Collection is known for its social and political commentary. The collection includes the work of Goya, Picasso, Ben Shan, Kara Walker, and most of the German Expressionists. But in the Solander boxes and on the shelves are paintings, drawings and etchings created by artists who, with their humor and gentle wit, help us temper everyday despair at the human condition with a quiet smile. Among the artists included in the exhibition will be Charles-Germain de Saint-Aubin, James Gillray, Mary Cassatt, Yves Klein, and Justin Gibbens.
