DESCRIPTION

This display brings together 88 rarely seen international prints from the State Art Collection. Featuring works produced over five centuries by some of the most influential artists in Western art, their delicacy, power and technical skill celebrate the art and craft of printmaking. The array of printmaking techniques is compelling and reveals the distinct means of expression of the print.
