Project Description

The Printed Line, an Arts Council Collection touring exhibition, is an outstanding display of printed works by major 20th century European and British artists.

The exhibition will consider how artists have used a variety of printmaking techniques to exploit the potential of the printed line. From the thick velvety line of drypoint and the heavy cross-hatching of etching to delicate wood engraving and boldly coloured screenprints and lithographs.

Featured artists include:

  • David Hockney
  • Pablo Picasso
  • Henri Matisse
  • Bridget Riley
  • Rachel Whiteread
  • Prunella Clough
  • Eduardo Paolozzi
  • Paul Coldwell
  • Gertrude Hermes
