Anna Staritsky 1909-1981 Works on Paper

31/01/2016 - 22/04/2016

Library exhibition

This exhibition addresses the extraordinary graphic work of Anna Staritsky, both in book form and in free graph. Born in Russia Staritsky lived and worked in Belgium and France. The exhibition shows the creative and artistic growth of an artist who started as a classic illustrator during the nineteen thirties and subsequently developed into an idiosyncratic artist. With her innovative ideas about the shape and structure of the artist's book, she helped to shape the French book art of the sixties and seventies of the last century.

All works are derived from the LS collection of the Van Abbemuseum. 


The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication in English (ISBN 978-90-79393-15-2 / € 17,50) with contributions by the artist Georges Meurant, who shares his memories of his godmother, and Albert Lemmens and Serge Stommels (curators of the LS collection). 


Albert Lemmens, Serge Stommels and Willem Jan Renders. 

Opening times

The exhibition takes place in the library, which is opened from Tuesday until Friday from 11.00 am to 5 pm. Weekends closed. Entrance to the library is free.
