The Centre Pompidou’s collection of graphic art includes over 20,000 drawings and prints. This collection, assembled in 1975 from works previously displayed at the Jeu de Paume and the Musée du Luxembourg, has grown considerably over the years


The modern section - from 1905 to the 1960s - has seen new works added: Antonion Artaud, Victor Brauner, Marc Chagall, Sonia Delaunay, Jean Dubuffet, Marcel Duchamp, Natalia Gontcharova, Vassily Kandinsky, Frans Kupka, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Carl-Henning Pedersen, and more. 


The collection's contemporary section has been enlarged through a dynamic acquisition policy, backed by the generosity of donors and artists and very much in tune with today's graphic creation within and outside France: Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, Silvia Bächli, Pierrette Bloch, Louise Bourgeois, Marlene Dumas, Per Kirkeby, Giuseppe Penone, Nancy Spero, Rosemarie Trockel, etc.
