Tent and other graphic cycles

The exhibition

Max Klinger (1857-1920) was not only an all-round artist who drew, painted and created sculptures, he was also one of the most important graphic artists of his time. With his prints in particular, he is a pioneer of modernism. His etching cycles, with their radically new narrative style and pictorial composition, influenced generations of younger artists and continue to fascinate today.

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his death (4 July 1920), the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung Munich is showing his rarely exhibited, largest and last cycle "Tent" for the first time. This is a copy of the special edition, which contains a series of proofs and prints of plates that were not included in the cycle. The exhibition begins with a documentation of the Munich collection - one of the most important outside Leipzig, Klingers' hometown - and a series of his most famous cycles.
