A world full of color

July 22 until October 29 2023

Louis Favre (1891-1956) is known for his exuberant use of color and use of lithography. The Frenchman regularly resides in the Netherlands for the last eight years of his life. In his career he experiments with the importance of color in art.

Favre’s lithographs mainly consist of still lifes, portraits and abstract images. This colorful work is strongly emotionally connected to him and produces works that radiate energy and life. Thanks to his powerful use of color, he knows how to capture the essence of his subject, whether it is a landscape, still life or portrait. A journalist writes that Louis Favre “belongs to those artists who can do magic with colors.” He is admired worldwide for this, but is forgotten after his death. In this colorful exhibition, the Dutch Museum of Lithography puts the life and work of Louis Favre in the spotlight.


Various special activities are organized around the exhibition, such as lectures and guided tours. Keep an eye on our calendar for up-to-date information!

The exhibition is made possible in part by the Rabobank Coörporatiefonds.

200 years of lithography

The amazing world of lithography

Permanent exhibition

The Dutch Museum of Lithography is the only museum in the world on the art of stone printing and lithography. Since 2001, the museum has been responsible for the preservation of this graphic heritage. This is partly due to the impressive collection assembled by the museum’s founder, Peter-Louis Vrijdag M Sc.

The museum collection of the Dutch Museum of Lithography includes book illustrations, cartography, advertising posters and lithography by famous artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Kees van Dongen en Jan Sluijters, but also playing cards, labels, postcards, prints, caricatures and (satirical) magazines.

We would also like you to discover how lithography has developed into today’s world of mass image communication. From the first hand presses and the immense speed presses of the 19th and 20th centuries, to today’s microchip technology.

Come and visit our museum and workshop, and experience the art and technique of lithography yourself!

Alphonse Mucha

Master of art nouveau

Virtual tour

Around 1900, artist Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) created his own style in cosmopolitan Paris. Le Style Mucha became synonymous with French art nouveau.

His first innovative 1894 lithograph for the play Gismonda, starring Parisian theatre star actress Sarah Bernhardt, made Mucha instantly famous. His lithographs with graceful lines, fresh pastel tones and lush motifs of sensual, melancholy women grew to become icons of the fin de siècle.

A retrospective of his magnificent lithographic work was on display at the Dutch Museum of Lithography between 21 March 2020 and 10 January 2021, and is still to be visited virtually!
