The artistic development of 16th-century chiaroscuro woodcuts from the collection of the Albertina Museum in Vienna and from the personal collection of Georg Baselitz Hon RA will be explored in this exhibition.
Over 100 works have been selected to illustrate this revolutionary, yet short-lived printing technique. Included in the exhibition will be works by the German artists Hans Burgkmaier and Lucas Cranach, who are believed to have pioneered the technique in 1508, as well as works by their European contemporaries in France, Italy and the Netherlands.
