Italian text

Catalog of the exhibition held in Sesto Fiorentino from November 30th, 2014 to January 18th, 2015, the volume is a research on Central European Symbolist engraving through a large selection of works by the greatest German artist of this period: Max Klinger. To his graphics, full of symbolic and surreal suggestions, are added those of many artists who were inspired by his style and by his  theories on the art of engraving. The volume is completed by a large collection of bookplates of the same period.
“It is a great opportunity”, as Lorenzo Zambini writes, “to explore the art and the influence of Klinger on graphics but also on the symbolic language of his period, at a time when the attention towards the sphere of dreams and the scientific approach to the world of dreams were taking more and more importance”
