Ashmolean Museum Oxford
by Anne Desmet RA
The Ashmolean Museum houses one of the most extensive collections of wood engravings in the world. The collection effectively began with the gift in 1964, by Arthur Mitchell, of over 3,000 prints, including a large group of wood engravings.
During the 1980s and 1990s, it expanded remarkably with acquisitions of large groups of prints, often as gifts from the artists, resulting in a succession of monographic exhibitions on some of the most important wood engravers.
This exhibition catalogue covers the entire history of wood engraving, including every major artist of the genre.
Book contains: 256 pages.
Dimensions: 22.25 x 2.18 x 28.22cm
