Against the Grain: Wood Engravings from Sheffield’s Collection

Escures by Gwen Raverat, 1946, thanks to the Raverat Archive, www.raverat.com
Saturday 7 December 2013 - Saturday 28 June 2014

This display brings together a beautiful selection of 20th century wood engravings from Sheffield’s collections, including works by artists such as Gertrude Hermes, Paul Nash and Gwen Raverat.

These intricate prints evoke a sense of rural tranquillity, often seen as a retreat from the modern world and a reaction to the horrors of war.
