Ontdek in het museum alles over de geschiedenis van het steendrukken
Discover everything about the history of stoneprinting

In 1798, Alois Senefelder invented lithopgraphy and the stoneprinting process. In the Dutch Museum of Lithography in Valkenswaard (near Eindhoven), you can discover the amazing world of 200 years of lithography with your own eyes and hands! Take a look at amazing international poster art, and visit the museum workshop for printing demonstrations and workshops.

Invention

Alois Senefelder invented planographic printing and lithography in 1798. He provided the world with the ultimate technique for producing images quickly, massively and cheaply (and from 1837, also in colour). This centuries-old craft is still alive and kicking: today's offset printing and even the microchip would not have come about without Senefelder's invention!

International poster art

The Dutch Museum of Lithography in Valkenswaard not only shows all kinds of lithographic printing, but also the technique that made it possible. The collection of the Nederlands Steendrukmuseum includes lithography and international poster art by famous artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Kees van Dongen and Jan Sluyters. You are more than welcome to come and discover all the historical, artistic and technical aspects of lithography in the museum and the workshop.
