Summary: The Van Gogh Museum has 1,800 French prints from the fin de siècle (1890–1905), making this one of the world’s leading print collections. The exhibition Prints in Paris takes you to the French capital, where the revolution in printmaking erupted from 1890 onwards. It focuses on the one hand on prints that were raised to the level of high art and could only be seen in private collections, fashionable theatres and exclusive galleries. And on the other, on world-famous posters such as those for Le Chat Noir and Le Moulin Rouge, which filled the public space along the boulevards and in popular cafés.
