About the exhibition:
The prints in this exhibition are from the Arts Council Collection, which is the largest loan collection of modern and contemporary British art and includes fine examples of work by all of this country’s most prominent artists.
The Printed Line exhibition considers how artists have used a variety of printmaking techniques to exploit the potential of the printed line from the thick velvety line of drypoint and the heavy cross-hatching of etching to delicate wood engraving and boldly coloured screenpints and lithographs.
Spanning the 20th century and up to the present day, the exhibition will include prints by David Hockney, Lucian Freud, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso as well as Bridget Riley and Rachel Whiteread, alongside a selection of prints from Rugby Art Gallery and Museum's collection.
