Figure in PrintHuman representation in printmaking in Luxembourg from 1945 to the present day
With a selection of more than 170 works, presented in two different venues (MNHA/BnL), the exhibition highlights the richness of the graphic production in our country from 1945 to the present day. The medium and its variety of artistic expression are demonstrated through five themes: Portrait, Abstraction, Nudes (at the MNHA), Bodies in action, and Man’s place in society (at the BNL). The selection of works from MNHA’s collection, BnL’s large Cabinet of Prints’ collection, Empreinte, and other renowned contemporary artists span the eras of modern and contemporary art. The range of techniques is wide: relief techniques (woodcut, linocut), intaglio (copperplate engraving, etching, aquatint, softground, etc.), lithography, silkscreen, and new contemporary techniques.
