Norton Simon Museum of Art says…

The Norton Simon Museum presents an exhibition of Studies in Desperation, Connor Everts’s landmark lithographic suite from late 1963. Comprised of nine powerful lithographs, in which mangled and malformed figures are confined in a womb-like space, Studies in Desperation was created in part as Everts’s response to the Kennedy assassination. The Museum’s edition of the suite, number 4 of 20, was donated in 2003 by Robin C. Park and D. Robert Park, and this is the first time all nine lithographs will be on view together here. Its installation commemorates the 50th anniversary of its creation.
