The Petit Palais is showcasing its rich graphic arts collection through a selection of almost two hundred prints by the great masters of printmaking, such as Dürer, Rembrandt, Callot, Goya, Toulouse-Lautrec, amongst others.
Engravings hold a prominent place within the collection of the Petit Palais and reflect the taste of its illustrious donors, brothers Auguste and Eugène Dutuit, and curator Henry Lapauze, at the origin of the Musée de l’Estampe moderne (Museum of Modern Prints), created in 1908 within the Petit Palais. By retracing the history of the collections, this exhibition allows visitors to gain a unique overview of engraving from the 15th to the 20th century, through a selection of its greatest treasures.
