Talk is cheap. Art, not so much— except at the Old Print Shop, a New York institution since 1898, where you can get a lesson in the history of printmaking just by scanning the stuff for sale. Score smaller nineteenth-century scenes of the U.S. for under $200, or pay somewhat more for works by John James Audubon, Thomas Hart Benton, or Grant Wood. Currier and Ives of bygone lithography fame are also in the house. Name aside, the gallery has added a contemporary selection.
