This exhibition of more than 120 works, almost exclusively chosen from the Zimmerli’s rich collection of 19th-century French graphic arts, presents a survey of French lithography from its establishment in Paris around 1815 through the end of the century.

 

Invented in Munich in 1796, the new printmaking medium of lithography introduced a simpler, faster, and more economical means of producing all types of printed matter. By the 1820s, Paris had emerged as a major center of artistic lithography as the medium was taken up by both established and rising artists. Museum Hours: T-F, 10am- 4:30pm. Sat-Sun, Noon-5pm. 1st Tues of most months, 10am-9pm. The museum is closed Mondays, major holidays, and the month of August. Free Admission.
