This touring exhibition is from the MRAG Collection and features lithographic prints created by the enigmatic English born artist Charles Conder.
Conder is widely collected and held in collections around the world. The lithographs are some of Conder’s finest work. He drew his subjects from Balzac and the bohemian tales of Henri Merger. The Balzac set of six lithographs shows Conder at his best and remains a high point of graphic art of his period. This exhibition of lithographs spans the period of 1899 until 1906. Included in the collection are a range of works from the Balzac set, invitation cards, and allegorical bohemian scenes. The exhibition comprises of 28 framed lithographs, 1 photograph of Barry Humphries by Lewis Morley and 14 books. The exhibition requires around 50 -55 running metres and is accompanied by a 105 page full colour catalogue with a preface by Barry Humphries and introduction by Richard King.
