Printmaking in France 1820-1900

15th Dec 2012 - 17th Mar 2013

Some of the most renowned French artists of the 19th century are represented in this exhibition of etchings, drypoints, lithographs, and woodcuts from Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand’s permanent collection.


These exquisite prints represent a diverse range of styles and techniques and include works by members of the Barbizon school, and the impressionist and post-impressionist movements. The exhibition offers an opportunity to see work in another medium by artists who are better known as painters, such as Corot, Manet, and Renoir, as well as works by master printmakers such as Legros and Bracquemond.
