Too good to hide
At present, the holdings of the Lentos’s graphic arts collection comprise around 13,500 items. All kinds of works on paper are subsumed under the term graphic arts in this context.
The project Too Good to hide showcases a successive series of works by renowned or emerging artists in the Collection Exhibition’s Graphic Arts Room. The period illustrated by the works on display extends from 1850 to the present day. This enables visitors to adopt a step-by-step approach to the museum’s holdings. Each exhibit comes with a commentary that places it against its background in art history.
