Altered States: Etching in Late 1Altered States: Etching in Late 19th- Century Paris


The RISD Museum is pleased to present a new exhibition entitled Altered States: Etching in Late 19th-Century Paris. The exhibition presents a series of works created during a time when the printmaking process of etchings underwent a revolutionary transformation. At a time when prints were usually made as copies of paintings rather than as original works of art, a revival of an interest in etching led to greater knowledge of technique, allowing artists to experiment with subject matter and process more than ever before. This exhibition features works on paper by well-known artists such as Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt, as well as those lesser known today, including Albert Besnard and Henri Guérard, and features several new acquisitions to the RISD Museum’s collection.
