The Printed Line

by Burton Art Gallery & Museum | Bideford
Date of event: 11/01/20 - 01/03/20

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. Spanning the 20th century and up to the present day, this exhibition will include works by Frank Auerbach, David Hockney, Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse.
