Catalogues of the collection of the Print Room of the University of Warsaw Library are out now!

With the greatest pride and joy, we would like to present the latest catalogues of the collection of the Print Room of the University of Warsaw Library. They are the result of scientific research, queries and consultations conducted in the years 2014-2019, as well as of a meticulous multi-stage publishing process.

Published jointly, in a uniform edition, the catalogues cover four main parts of the collection of the university's collection of prints and drawings, whose bicentenary of existence was celebrated in 2018. The catalogues in both Polish and English are fully illustrated and prepared with the application of scientific methodology. The catalogues cover a few selected sets, which represents only a part of the rich collection of works on paper.

The part which, although to a small extent, brings us closer to the extremely rich collection of old foreign prints is the catalogue on two authors of the German school, Barthel and Sebald Bahamas. Małgorzata Łazicka discussed there 254 prints by the artists known collectively as Kleinmeister.

The publication of the catalogues coincided with the significant restrictions on public activity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. For that reason, it is not possible to organize the previously planned scientific conference and presentation of the original works discussed in the catalogues at the University of Warsaw Library. Nevertheless, with all lovers of prints and drawings in mind, we have prepared audiovisual materials that will bring them closer to the research process and more interesting topics discussed in the publications.

The scholarly analysis of the collection and the publication of research results in printed catalogues in the Polish and English language versions were possible thanks to the grant from the National Programme for the Development of Humanities No. 11 H 13 0045 82
