Visitors can explore four galleries packed with around 100 artworks by some of the world’s most iconic artists, including Rembrandt, Hokusai, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Bridget Riley and Paula Rego.
The exhibition brings together examples of printmaking from Scotland’s national collection, including early woodcuts, such as Albrecht Dürer’s incredible Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, through to bold, punchy pop-art idols such as Roy Lichtenstein’s Reverie and Andy Warhol’s The Cow.
The exhibition also looks to the future, with a range of new artworks from contemporary printmakers.
At the heart of the exhibition is a celebration of the skills and processes which form an integral part of this traditional yet ever evolving and much-loved artform. See films of printmakers at work and get up close to discover how you can spot an etching from a lithograph, or woodcut from wood engraving.
Scotland’s printmaking story is key to the exhibition, not only through the artworks on
display, but through a series of films from print studios across the country. There is also a unique opportunity for visitors to see the tools and working materials used to make prints featured in the exhibition, on loan from the artists themselves.
There is wheelchair access and large print labels on displays. The exhibition runs from 02 December 2023 to 25 February 2024. Further details and ticketing information can be found on The Printmaker’s Art: Rembrandt to Rego.
