In October of 1917, George Herdle brought to MAG an exhibition of prints made by members of the newly-formed Painter-Gravers of America. Among the over 90 prints was Rudolph Ruzicka’s Palisades, which was purchased for the collection for $10.80. With a minimum of colors and lines, the artist created an arresting image of a Hudson River scene, familiar and yet in his hands almost exotic. Interest in his work remained keen in Rochester, and he was given a solo exhibition at MAG the following year.
