Identifier: MS-0448
Scope and Contents The material is diverse, including engravings, drawings, posters, and medals, ranging from the 18th to the 20th century.

It is especially strong in 19th and 20th century avant-garde material (Symbolisme, Cabaret literature, political and social satire, Surrealism).
