Cutting the Grain :: A History of Wood-relief printmaking
Join us for a curator talk on the history of wood-relief printmaking in connection with one of the featured exhibitions ~ Cutting the Grain
Presenter: Jason Shaiman, Curator of Exhibitions, Miami University Art Museum
Wood-relief printmaking has a long history extending back to the 5th century CE with the advent of woodblock prints in China. By the late 18th century, wood engravings emerged as the preferred medium among artists. Explore the history of these two wood relief formats, learn about what distinguishes these media, and discover how artists explored the two forms of relief printing.
