the ARS GRAPHICA network is an international platform, which aims to connect art historians, museum professionals, conservators, students and artists working within the field of the graphic arts. It was founded in 2013 by Alexandra Blanc and Christian Féraud. The first intention was to create opportunities for scholars working within the same field of research to get to know each other. This idea came to us because, at that time, we were both living in Switzerland at only 50 km away without knowing we were both studying the same discipline and we end up meeting at the Kupferstichkabinett in Dresden. This was the starting point to create Ars Graphica.
Today, bringing together graphic art enthusiasts is still our priority!
