Lecture: The Persistence of Engraving

March 5, 2015
Fullerton Hall
Free with museum admission

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.
