"Broken Brushes: Prints by Hitler’s ‘Degenerate Artists’ from the Kopriva Collection." Houston collector Gus Kopriva has amassed an impressive collection of German Expressionist prints, a portion of which will be on view in the exhibit "Broken Brushes." Kopriva’s collection focuses on artists who, under Hitler and his Nazi regime, were deemed "degenerate" — modernist and avant-garde creatives whose bold abstract visions clashed with the Nazis. The Austin showing features a selection of 30 prints from Kopriva’s collection of well-known artists Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, Johannes Itten, Wassily Kandinsky, Ernst Kirchner, Paul Klee, Oskar Kokoschka, Käthe Kollwitz, among others. "Broken Brushes" is part of Print Austin, a monthlong celebration of fine art printmaking with exhibits and happenings at several different venues around town. Opening and talk by Kopriva: 6 to 8 p.m. Friday. Exhibit hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays-Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays through April 5. Flatbed Press and Gallery, 2832 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Free. 512-477-9328, www.flatbedpress.com
