The Magnes has a unique collection of prints and drawings, artist books and posters, consisting of over two thousand works on paper, making it one of the largest of its kind.

First developed by Florence B. Helzel, the collection was introduced through such outstanding catalogues as The Print and Drawing Collection of the Judah L. Magnes Museum (1984), Narrative Imagery: Artist Portfolios (1991), and Shtetl Life (1993). Holdings at The Magnes include works on paper by Arthur Szyk, Marc Chagall, Ori Sherman, Wilhelm Thielmann, Mayer Kirshenblatt, and Issachar Ryback.
