Artists and Masterpieces of Illustration in Krakow

Following the success of the previous stages in Bologna and Wroclaw, the exhibition “Artists and Masterpieces of Illustration - 50 Illustrators Exhibitions 1967-2016" will be on show until June 30 in Krakow, Poland. It will take place at the Miedzynarodowe Centrum Kultury - International Cultural Center in Rynek Glowny,  which can be found in the very heart of the city, and as part of the Festival of Literature and Arts (Literature-Music-Cinema-Culture).

The exhibition, curated by Paola Vassalli, presents the works of the 50 artists who have made the story of the Children's Book Fair in Bologna and the history of the world of illustration. Each table is accompanied by the first edition or the most relevant book of each artist. A special occasion for fans to record the evolution and latest trends of the books and illustrated stories and to offer the kids and their families the wonder and beauty of timeless imagery.

The inauguration was attended by the Lithuanian-Polish master Stasys Eidrigevicius who gave a presentation to all the children present.

After Krakow, the show will continue its long journey to China
