This small selection of German and French prints from the permanent collection show some of the developments in European art that took place during the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century.

Symbolism, German Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism are represented in a range of print media, including Odilon Redon’s lithograph Profil de lumière(Profile of light),1886; Franz Marc’s woodcut Aus der Tierlegende(From animal legends),1912; Jacques Villon’s drypoint and etching L'oiseau (The bird), 1921; and Picasso’s etching and collage La plongeuse (The diver), 1932.
