History Of Printmaking at Aberystwyth School of Art

Participating in Phil Garratt’s lifelong learning course in the history of printmaking at Aberystwyth School of Art has made me reflect on my most recent artist research, its opened my eyes into the works of a number of printmakers and artists who I previously knew little about.

I was aware of the English Romantic artist John Crome’s capacity for the atmospheric manipulation of aerial perspective in oil paint from seeing such impressively distinctive works by him such as Willow Tree with a Horseman and a Woman on a Road in the Castle Museum, Nottingham. It was indeed on reflection Crome that sparked my interest for etching and the subject of trees and nature.
