German artist Max Klinger (1857-1920) has long been celebrated for his imaginative print cycles that blend innovative compositions with often fantastical subjects. A recent acquisition by the Davis, the playful plates of Klinger’s Intermezzi cycle present the artist’s unique blend of romanticism and symbolism, and demonstrate his extraordinary facility with intaglio printing.
Curated by Claire Whitner, Assistant Director of Curatorial Affairs and Senior Curator of Collections.
