On View: 
Tuesday, October 4, 1988 to Sunday, January 8, 1989

Seventy-five posters by 50 artists survey Dutch poster design from 1890 through 1940. Dutch posters were generally smaller than their French counterparts, designed to be hung inside a shop rather than displayed outdoors and read from a distance. Featured artists include Th. H.A.A. Molkenboer, Theodorus Nieuwenhuis, Willy Sluiter, and Piet van der Hem.

Organized by Stephen S. Prokopoff, director of the Krannert Art Museum at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
