If there is an exhibition on printmaking to see this month, it is the exhibition presented in Paris by the Foundation Custodia and entitled ‘D’ABORD REGARDER’ CHARLES DONKER, from December 3, 2021 to April 3, 2022.

The Foundation Custodia presents the work of the artist Charles Donker (born in 1940 in Utrecht, Netherlands). His technique and refinement rank him among the greatest contemporary Dutch graphic artists. The Foundation Custodia has an important selection of his etched work, including trial proofs and prints retouched by the artist himself. More than 150 works are on view. Most of them are etchings. The exhibition also reveals, for the first time, about twenty drawings and fifteen watercolors. All the works on display retrace the fifty-year career of the artist. A must see.
