From stone
to chip

Alois Senefelder invented stone printing and lithography in 1798. He provided the world with the ultimate technique for producing images quickly, massively and cheaply (and from 1837, also in colour). This centuries-old craft is still alive and kicking: today’s offset printing and even the microchip would not have come about without Senefelder’s invention!

The Dutch Museum of Lithography in Valkenswaard not only shows all kinds of lithographic printing, but also the technique that made it possible. You are more than welcome to come and discover all the historical, artistic and technical aspects of lithography in our museum and workshop.

Collection

The collection of the Dutch Museum of Lithography includes book illustrations, cartography, advertising panels and lithography of famous artists such as Kees van Dongen, Alphonse Mucha, Adolphe Willette and Jan Sluyters, but also playing cards, labels, postcards, prints, caricatures and (satirical) magazines. In addition to the permanent collection, the Dutch Museum of Lithography regularly presents a new exhibition highlighting a special artist or a specific theme.

EXPRESS YOUR CREATIVITY
ON STONE

Get creative in our workshop! Lithography is a surface printing technique, which is based on the repelling effect of grease and water. During our lithography workshops, you will learn the basics of this age-old craft at entry-level. Create your own design in our workshop, enjoy a delicious lunch and print (with our help) your own drawing on a traditional stone printing press.

LECTURES

Our curator will introduce you to the world of lithography and lithographic art during lectures. These lectures are an absolute must for every art lover!
