Intermezzi: The Inventive Fantasies of Max Klinger

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 Museum, the playful plates of Klinger’s Intermezzi cycle on view this semester present the artist’s unique blend of romanticism and symbolism. A master of aquatint and etching, the cycle attests to the artist’s extraordinary facility with intaglio printing. Curated by Claire Whitner, Assistant Director of Curatorial Affairs/Senior Curator of Collections.
