The women subjects are accomplished and influential women, including writers, poets, artists, singers, dancers, a social activist, a scientist and a queen. The Portrait in Print Collection was donated to McHenry County College and the Friends of McHenry County College Foundation by Mary and Charles Liebman, with the first gift of prints arriving in 1990.
The collection now numbers over 260 fine art prints and includes lithography, intaglio, serigraphy and woodcut as well as several drawings and works created with combined printmaking techniques. The Portrait in Print Collection has a permanent home at MCC and can be viewed in the MCC Library on a continuous basis.
