Philadelphia Pays Homage to Illustrator Wanda Gág

Sandra Bertrand

For those who can’t make it to the “City of Brotherly Love,” Laurel Garber, the Park Family Assistant Curator of Prints and Drawings, has assembled an online collection of Gág’s drawings on sandpaper—a gritty and sparkling medium that suits her objects.  These were inspired by a move from New York City to rural New Jersey where she purchased her beloved farmhouse, Tumble Timbers.  It is the exterior of this home that first assails the viewer’s eye.
