Burin engraving ceased to be the dominant form of printmaking sometime in the middle of the 17th century, yet it continued to be a distinctive creative tool for artists such as William Blake, Jean-Emile Laboureur, Stanley William Hayter and Louise Bourgeois, who made significant work exploiting the special qualities of the medium. Andrew Raftery, Rhode Island School of Design professor and a practicing engraver, will explore the continued vitality of engraving from the close of the Golden Age to the present in the 2014 McNab lecture.
