This event has ended.

Max Klinger (1857-1920) is a sculptor, painter, and printmaker who was active in Germany. His prints are characterized by precise realism and evocative fantasy that together create a mysterious charm. The Museum of Modern Art, Hayama has exhibited his prints regularly since April 1981, and this exhibition marking the 160th anniversary of Klinger’s birth will introduce prominent prints by the artist that are held in the museum collection as well as in other Japanese collections, such as “Drama” (Machida City Museum of Graphic Arts collection) and “On Death Part 2” (Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art). In addition, a number of his bookplates, including one produced for Wilhelm von Bode (1845-1929) who later became the director of Berlin State Museums, will be on display.

*Two exhibitions will be held simultaneously: “Max Klinger Prints: The 160th Anniversary of His Birth” in Gallery 1 and 2, and “From Museum Collection: 1937 - Modernism at a Branch Point” in Gallery 3.
