The Golden Age

18 December 2015 – 22 May 2016

An exhibition of twentieth century British and New Zealand wood engravings.

Wood engraving experienced a remarkable revival in England during the 1920s, a golden age that coincided with the private press movement. Bringing together examples by both British and New Zealand artists these wood-engravings are full of zest and the works punch above their weight. They are small, exquisite gems that reflect the skill and finesse of the artists who made them.
