Weekend of Prints, Engravings and Drawings

Insights into the Kupferstichkabinett

Watercolours, drawings and prints are very sensitive to light and therefore cannot be permanently exhibited in the museum. The "Weekend of Prints and Drawings" on 14 November 2021 therefore offers an extra programme to provide unusual insights into these hidden treasures. The head of the Kupferstichkabinett, Anita Haldemann, and Ariane Mensger, curator of the Kupferstichkabinett, will give three specific guided tours of the new acquisitions of the Kupferstichkabinett, you will have the opportunity to see a supposedly real Raphael and there will be a guided tour of the exhibition on Pieter Bruegel the Elder. The guided tours are included in your museum admission.

The Papiermühle and the Druckwerk also offer workshops in Basel for the Weekend of Prints and Drawings. You can find more info on their websites:
