Text from the curators:

Daniel Chodowiecki (1726-1801), one of the most important engravers of the Enlightenment, was born in Gdansk but his entire creative activity took place in Berlin, where he trained as a self-taught artist fact that didn't prevented his Academic Recognition.
Although he also worked miniature, enamel and oil painting, Chodowiecki has earned his reputation as an illustrator, notably through its work in etching and the new aquatint technique.
His graphic works are distinguished by a high precision design and finesse effects, but also by the depth with which (thanks to his erudition) has addressed some issues of the illustrated book, be it literature (Goethe, Schiller, Lessing, Rousseau Voltaire, Shakespeare or writers that posterity has appreciated less, as Lesage or Richardson) or scientific and pedagogical works.
Along with book illustration, the selection shown in the exhibition includes a number of works from 1758, made by nature, spontaneously, directly on the plate varnish.
