Other Dürer to Daumier: Artists of science in the collections of the Hagströmer Library
KI staff and students: welcome to a free guided tour of our new exhibition!
The Hagströmer Library is Sweden’s premier medical and scientific rare books library. Many important artists are represented in its collections. Some, like Albrecht Dürer (1471 – 1528) and Honoré Daumier (1808 – 1879), are world famous and often featured in books and museum exhibitions. Others are now largely forgotten, known mainly to scholars and collectors.
This exhibition highlights the work these important artists did on medical and scientific themes, demonstrating the many printing techniques—woodcut, copperplate engraving, and lithography—they and their collaborators used in the making and reproduction of images, each with its own advantages and uses.
