Multiples: Prints & Editions from the Bechtler Collection

Location: Fourth-Floor Gallery Time Period: July 2, 2022 – September 5, 2022

The Bechtler Museum of Art was founded by Andreas Bechtler, a Swiss-born entrepreneur, artist, musician, and art collector. With singular vision and taste, Andreas’ parents, Hans and Bessie Bechtler of Zürich, Switzerland developed a cutting-edge collection of modern art capturing a remarkable era in art history. After inheriting a portion of his parents’ collection, Andreas Bechtler made plans for a museum in his resident city of Charlotte, North Carolina that would honor both the art and the way in which it was collected over a period of fifty years. This exhibition presents a selection of prints, artist’s books, and editions from the Bechtler Collection and highlights the democratic nature and collaborative characteristics of editioned works of art. Artists in the exhibition include Pierre Alechinsky, Jean Arp, Georges Braque, Alexander Calder, Le Corbusier, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacometti, Jasper Johns, Fernand Léger, Henri Matisse, Joan  Miró, Henry Moore, Méret  Oppenheim, Pablo Picasso, Germaine Richier, Kumi Sugai, Antoni Tàpies, Walasse Ting, and Italo Valenti.
