Not actually part of this collection but “on loan” for display. Occasionally a printmaker, or a perticular print is too good to be missed in a representation. Marga Eschenbach is an otherwise obscured artist of Lithuanian origin with a very interesting biography. She worked and lived in Munich and was also known as museum restorator and original toy maker. Her ducks are a thoroughly Munich (Neumann) school of printmaking example: the use of “das zarte Grau” or delicate grey, by which it became famous.
