There will be a Floortalk on Impressionist Printmaking 
at 3pm–3.45pm on Sunday 24 November, 
 Te Ihomatua / Gallery on 4, Te Papa in Wellington.
Exhibition entry fee of $17.50 per adult applies.

Join art historian David Maskill for a fascinating floortalk 
on impressionist prints and printmaking from the exhibition Colour & Light.

Camille & Lucien Pissarro, Women weeding the grass, from ‘Les travaux des champs’, 1893-1895

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.
