This workshop coincides with the exhibition GĂ©ricault to Gauguin - Printmaking in France 1820-1900
which is showing at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery now until 17 March.

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.
