Stars for Christmas is a unique exhibition at the National Museum which could be described as a recap of the entire history of 20th-century art. Items shown at the exhibition are a selection of 89 of the best and most interesting works by 29 artists of the 20th century that are usually kept away from the public eye in the National Museum’s vaults. The pieces include subtle and ethereal prints by Marc Chagall, a beautiful collection of works by Paul Klee, including drawings and prints, several prints by Vassili Kandinsky, a lithograph by Henri Matisse and several prints and a drawing by Pablo Picasso (Polish Girl). Alongside two valuable linocuts, Bust of a Woman with a Hat and Breakfast on the Grass, visitors to the museum can also see an aquatint entitled Smoker and lithographs from the Woman in a Chair series and ceramic plates from the early period that Picasso donated to the National Museum.

Other items shown at the exhibition include prints and ceramic objects by Fernand Léger, two excellent drawings by Alexandre Calder, a collage by Robert Rauschenberg, works by artists from the CoBrA group (Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, Asger Jorn, Corneille), a set of works by Joan Miró, designs by Christo (including for the wrapped Reichstag) and several amusing objects by artists from the Fluxus group, Milan Knízák, Emmett Williams and Ann Noël-Williams.
