What is an original fine art print? By original prints, we mean handmade engravings, etchings, woodcuts, mezzotints, made by the artists themselves or by printmakers interpreting the design of an artist. In this interactive session, you will be introduced to the various techniques of original fine art printmaking by examining a range of works dating from the 16th to the 20th centuries.
David Maskill is an art historian with a particular interest in the history of original prints. In 2021, he founded MARIETTE PRINTS, a dealership specialising in fine art prints. He is very familiar with the print collection of Te Papa, having led many art history students and Friends of Te Papa through them in the past.
Join us at 10.30am for morning tea, followed by the talk, and a Q and A afterwards.
