Please Color the Art! – Printable Coloring Pages

Coloring Pages

We’ve selected a few highlights from our collection and turned them into downloadable coloring pages. These free, printable artworks are taken from the Kurt J. Wagner, M.D. and C. Kathleen Wagner Collection of art nouveau posters that were generously donated to LACMA’s Prints and Drawings department in the 1980s.  

The posters have been made into black and white images for your coloring pleasure. They vary in subject and imagery and we think each offer a unique way to pass the time.
