People who have saved this event:



This exhibition surveys a hundred years of modern Italian printmaking, from the time of the unification of Italy in 1870 until the avant-garde artists of the 1970s. Among the 45 artists included are great figures such as Fattori, Morandi and Fontana, as well as interesting and important works by de Chirico and the Futurists. The catalogue offers the first account of this period of Italian printmaking. Almost all the works shown come from the collection of the British Museum, which has been built up in recent years through the generosity of an anonymous donor.
