LITHO XXL

Experimenting with XXL lithography

August 13 until September 25 2022

Litho XXL is a unique cooperation project between the Dutch Museum of Lithography and Make Eindhoven.

Three artists are challenged to experiment with lithography in large format, under the supervision of master printer Gertjan Forrer and creative artist Ingrid Simons. This project is created to look for new possibilities within the limits of lithography. The artists are therefore provoked to work within the trodden paths as well as beyond them.

In 2019, the first edition of Litho XXL was carried out by the artists Ide André, Marjolein Landman and Annemarie Slobbe. In September 2021, the artists Dieke Venema, Lotte van Lieshout and Fiona Lutjenhuis were selected for the second edition of Litho XXL, out of more than thirty applications.

Through the Litho XXL project, the Dutch Museum of Lithography and Make Eindhoven want to stimulate the knowledge of the technique of lithography, to bring it up to date and, moreover, to keep it alive. Also, the project will give the selected artists room to go to work in the contemporary arts with innovative and more unorthodox adaptations.

Pop-up expo in Valkenswaard

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!
