Figure in Print – The human form & body through Luxembourgish printmaking from 1945 to today

The human form & body through Luxembourgish printmaking from 1945 to today

This exhibition exploring the human figure in Luxembourgish printmaking is the result of a collaboration between the National Museum of History and Art, the National Library of Luxembourg (BnL), and Luxembourg’s most renowned engraving workshop: Empreinte. 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: Portraits, Abstraction, Nudes (MNHA, Wiltheim wing), Bodies in action, and Man’s place in society (at the BNL).
