- ABOUT US
Wood engraving was developed in the eighteenth century and was traditionally used as a form of book illustration. Differing from other forms of woodcut in that the end of the blocks of wood are used, rather than the long grain, and in that it is created with wood so hard that an engraver's tools must be utilized to create the detailed, often narrative images.
This exhibition featured over forty contemporary and historical wood engravers from around the world. Many of the featured prints may be available.
