Visions in Black and White: Max Klinger

Memorial Art Gallery
Wednesday, July 9, 2014
All Day

The influential German artist and writer Max Klinger (1857-1920) believed that the medium of the black and white print was the best means to explore what he called "the dark side of life." This exhibition showcases two portfolios from the 1880s--A Glove and On Death, Part I--in which Klinger weaves together images of the real and the imaginary to create powerful visionary narratives of love, death and longing.

This exhibition is sponsored by the Emily Sibley Watson, Georgia O’Keeffe and Claude Monet Societies of the Gallery’s Director’s Circle.
