British Landscape Printmaking 1750-1880 – an exhibition. Nicely done, I only wish some of the reproductions were a bit better in quality. Via things.
Printmaking became a vehicle for many artists who were constantly searching for new methods of personal expression in graphic media. This exhibition will show a progression from a formalized, arcadian view of the landscape to a more passionate involvement, with the rise of the Romantic Era and the depiction of the landscape of Great Britain and Western Europe. It is also within this time period we see the advent of the Industrial Revolution which was to produce one of the most fundamental changes in society; both urban and rural.
