DESCRIPTION

Innovative works of Dutch graphic design from the late 19th and early 20th centuries

In the era of Art Nouveau, from the 1890s through the turn of the century, there was a flourishing of new, imaginative art and craft throughout Europe. Holland also saw an explosion of inventive art and design in this period, including many expressive works on paper—posters, decorative calendars, illustrated books, as well as prints and drawings. The MFA has been actively collecting these Dutch works for the last 25 years, and this exhibition highlights of 45 works early drawings by well-known artists Piet Mondrian and Bart van derLeck, as well as works by such new discoveries as Jan Toorop, Theo Nieuwenhuis, Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita, Theo Hoytema, G. W. Dijsselhof, and C. A. Lion Cachet.
