Prints were everywhere in the 19th century: from street posters and newspaper caricatures to experimental works that pushed the limits of ink and paper. Nevertheless, our first impressions of 19th-century French art are often dominated by painting — this talk will introduce you to another side of the period, the fascinating world of prints. Exploring hidden gems from Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, guest speaker Dr Rachel Skokowski will trace the key developments and debates that revolutionized 19th-century printmaking.

Dr Rachel Skokowski is a PhD graduate of the University of Oxford and a Rhodes Scholar with expertise in 18th–19th-century French art history and the intersection of art and technology. She is currently the Curatorial Research Assistant, European Art at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.
