Prelude shows designs, sketches and experiments by artists from The Hague who worked for a period in the Grafische Werkplaats in museum Escher in Het Paleis. They screen-printed, etched, lithographed or used graphics in an unconventional way. They did this on the basis of the theme of Royal Encounters.

In honor of the 2022 Graphic Triennial, Escher in Het Paleis invited ten artists from The Hague to take inspiration from Lange Voorhout Palace and its main resident, Queen Mother Emma. The selected artists usually create work from a variety of disciplines, from large architectural installations to photography. In this exhibition they are challenged to step outside their comfort zone by creating new graphic work

The final works of art can be seen in the exhibition Royal Encounters in the museum. The Grafische Werkplaats explains the quest of the artists by showing the preliminary studies, with which they arrived at their final work of art

Prelude is a collaboration with museum Escher in Het Paleis
