Traveling Exhibits

Current collections available:


  • Intermezzi, Opus IV by Max Klinger:  a portfolio of twelve framed etchings with aquatint.

    German artist Max Klinger (1857-1920) celebrated for his graphic works, created fourteen major print cycles. One of these is the exquisitely rendered Intermezzi (1881), a portfolio of diverse subject matter including mythology and scenes from the 17th Century German novel, Simplicius Simplissimus. The highly emotional subject matter of these works, often with psychological underpinnings, anticipated the Expressionist and Surrealist movements that followed the artist’s death.

    The exhibition includes twelve framed etchings (each 22.75” x 16.75”) and an accompanying essay written by Joseph Mella, Director of the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery.  The essay is available for each venue to print in its own brochure or as a wall text.

    Details: Borrowing museums are responsible for shipping both ways.  All framed works are packed in one box. Images will be provided for publicity.

    Rental fee: $1,200 (plus shipping) for 6-8 weeks
  • Resounding Spirit

    Resounding Spirit is a major group exhibition of Japanese avant-garde art from the 1960s.  It is a remarkable collection of Japanese modern art, the only one of its kind in North America.  Resounding Spirit challenges the accepted Western history of 20th century art, presenting modern Japanese art as an innovative and independent force that was in dialogue with international currents. Covering the period between the late 1950s and the early 1970s, it features close to 50 paintings and works on paper by 45 Japanese artists including Atsuko Tanaka, Kazuo Shiraga, and Jiro Yoshihara, internationally respected members of the Gutai, the best-known group of Japanese avant-garde artists.  It also features a video of Gutai art activities from the 1960s, which demonstrates the intersection of painting and performance art that was so important to these artists.

    Rental fee: $10,000 (plus shipping) for 8 weeks
