Jacques Callot: Etchings from the Daniel Gift
When: 12 April to 26 May 2013
Where: Former Albury Art Gallery, 546 Dean Street Albury
About the exhibition
Jacques Callot was one of the great artists of 17th century Europe and the one most responsible for turning the technique of etching into an art form. Born and raised in France, he travelled to Italy to be trained under the great masters of the time. Callot's work soon surpassed even that of his masters and, with the patronage of the powerful Medici family, he became one of the most sought-after and influential artists in Europe.
The etchings displayed in this exhibition were collected by a leading authority on Jacques Callot, Howard Daniel, who gifted the work to the Albury Art Gallery in the 1990s.
Total Attendance: 4215
Official opening and hands-on etching sessions guided by master printer Bill Young and inspired by Callot's methods and characters.
