Too good to hide - Treasures from the graphics depot
More than 10,000 graphic works are carefully stored in the LENTOS’s depots. The exhibition Too good to hide. Treasures from the graphics depot puts on show four to five especially valuable works at monthly intervals.
Graphic works include all kinds of works on paper, such as drawings, woodcuts, lithographs, etchings, linocuts and silkscreen prints. The show opens with a lithograph by Honoré Daumier from 1845 and wends its way through the 19th and 20th centuries to the early 21st century, featuring works by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Alfred Kubin, Gustav Klimt, Käthe Kollwitz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erika Giovanna Klien, Klemens Brosch, Herbert Bayer, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Vilma Eckl, Maria Lassnig, Alfred Hrdlicka, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Bruno Gironcoli, Birgit Jürgenssen, Edgar Honetschläger, Ulrike Lienbacher and others.
The presentation of Carola Dertnig’s collage Dance Report – L. A. Report in February 2014 will mark the end of a year of exciting discoveries in the LENTOS’s graphics depot.
