Chagall, Matisse, Miró

Made in Paris

Since the beginning of the 20th century, Paris has been one of the most important European centres for the production of artists’ books and portfolios. Artists such as Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró or Pablo Picasso passionately created original graphic works with which they could reach a wider audience than with individual paintings. Based on the collection of the Museum Folkwang and additional loans, the exhibition presents outstanding works, including Jazz by Henri Matisse, La Tauromaquia by Pablo Picasso, A toute épreuve by Joan Miró or Marc Chagall’s etchings of the Hebrew Bible. In addition, some of the famous printing workshops in which the exhibits were created are presented.
