Book Museum, room 347

On January 18 at 4pm, the Book Museum opened an exhibition "Engravings: Lembit Lõhmus and the Viennese School.

The exhibition will present subtle and sophisticated graphic works by contemporary artists, made in the technique of classical engraving. This difficult and rare technique has been used by graphic artists since the 15th century and was widely practised in Belarus in the late 16th and 18th centuries. One of the most prominent representatives who worked in this technique was Albrecht Dürer.

In Belarus, engraving was practised by Tomash Makouski, Aliaksandr and Liavonci Tarasievich, Maksim Voshchanka and others. Today, there are practically no Belarusian craftsmen working in this very complex technique.

The core of the exhibition consists of modern artworks from the private collection of bibliophile Alieh Sudliankou, as well as works by foreign artists specially sent to Belarus for this exhibition. Most of them are ex-libris, characterised by great detail and a very high level of craftsmanship.

The exhibition will be on show in the Book Museum (room 347) until April 10, 2022.
The end date is subject to change.

The opening hours of the exhibition correspond to the opening hours of the Book Museum.
Admission is by the library card or by the Social and Cultural Centre ticket.
