Zeppelin was acquired by the Philadelphia Museum of Art as a gift of The Print Center, Philadelphia. The print was displayed in an exhibition showcasing a selection of works gifted to the museum over The Print Center's 100 years as a fine arts and printmaking institution.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art presents an exhibition of forty-some works culled from more than 1600 donated by The Print Center to the museum since 1929. Curated by Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings Shelley Langdale, the diverse assortment of works on view—from an etching by Hendrick Goltzius (Dutch, 1558-1617) to a lithograph by Jasper Johns (born 1930)—was chosen to highlight the range of The Print Center’s contributions to the Museum’s important collection of American and European prints. This installation commemorates the Museum’s close working relationship with The Print Center in promoting the study and appreciation of fine prints and photographs. Print Love: Celebrating The Print Center at 100 is presented as part of The Print Center 100. On view October 2, 2015 – January 3, 2016.
