Graphic Art

The Transylvanian Museum houses approximately 4,000 works of graphic art, for example drawings, watercolour paintings, graphic prints and historic photographs. The historic period of this collection spans from the 16th century to the present. The works were primarily produced by Transylvanian artists or show Transylvanian subjects.

The focus of the collection is on graphic prints from the 17th century and graphic art from the 19th and early 20th century. Through gifts and purchases, this collection of Transylvanian graphic art has grown significantly over the past few years.

It includes works from Sieglinde Bottesch, Arthur Coulin, Gert Fabritius, Juliana Fabritius-Dancu, Ernst H. Graeser, Hans Hermann, Fritz Kimm, Hermann Konnerth, Ludwig Rohbock, Trude Schullerus, Heinz Schunn, Susanne Schunn, Kaspar Lukas Teutsch and Helfried Weiß, among others.

Distinct areas of art are the collection of documentary graphic art from the 17th to 20th century, which shows traditional costumes and traditions, views of and construction plans for fortified churches, and views of Transylvanian towns or villages.
