Join art historian David Maskill for a fascinating Colour & Light floortalk on impressionist prints and printmaking.
The impressionists’ ability to capture the fleeting effects of light, colour, and atmosphere in paint is surely their greatest claim to fame. What is less well known is that many of the impressionist painters also sought to achieve the same ends in the medium of original prints.
This talk examines a range of impressionist prints, both those included in the current exhibition Colour & Light and those from Te Papa’s own rich collections.
David Maskill is a senior lecturer in art history at Victoria University of Wellington and is a specialist in the history of prints and printmaking.
