Five Centuries of German and Austrian Graphics

This exhibition will consist of a selection of German as well as Austrian graphic art drawn primarily from the permanent collection but also featuring several works from private Canadian collections.

The exhibition will also include several important recent acquisitions. The selection ranges from great early engravings by Van Meckenem and Schongauer to masterworks by Dürer and 16th-century printmakers, from Schnorr von Carolsfeld to Klinger and Makart, from Klimt (including studies of Adele Bloch-Bauer, his celebrated “Woman in Gold”) and Schiele to a wide range of German Expressionist and modern artists, including Nolde, Kirchner, Heckel, Dix, Beckmann, Pechstein, Schmidt-Rottluff, Moeller, Grosz, Kandinsky and Baselitz.
