Born on this day: Elizabeth Forbes (1859-1912)

Dear reader,

The last News Corner of 2022 features some exciting exhibitions and opportunities. We wish you a most wonderful 2023!



Our hearts were broken by the news of the passing of Ger Luijten. He was a true ambassador of the graphic arts and a wonderful scholar, curator and director, who built a fantastic legacy. We wish all those who were close to him strength.

Please find Fondation Custodia's In memoriam here.
