      Intermezzi: The Inventive Fantasies of Max Klinger

      German artist Max Klinger (1857-1920) is 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.

      This exhibition will be on display until June 10 in the Friends of Art Gallery. The museum is closed on Mondays.
