Exhibition Victor Prouvé and the art of engraving at the Ecole de Nancy Museum – from 30 March to 17 July 2016

Versatile artist, "the man with 100 professions", Victor Prouvé is interested in many artistic techniques, from painting to sculpture, through leather working or decorative glass. Prolific draftsman, he naturally turns to the engraving, that he practiced early in his career and until the end of his life.

The donation of its tools and engraving plates by his descendants, through the Friends of the Ecole de Nancy Museum, is an opportunity to highlight this intense and varied activity, presenting more than thirty works coming from museum collections of the city of Nancy. Landscapes, portraits and genre scenes, executed between 1883 and 1931, illustrate the different techniques explored by Prouvé (drypoint, etching, aquatint, mezzotint, soft-ground etching, woodcut, lithography ...) and invite a new perspective on his work, between intimacy and lyricism.

Guided tours and activities for all ages, especially initiations to the practice of engraving, accompany the exhibition.
