Printing for the "Blurring the Lines, Manuscripts in the Age of Print " at The Getty Museum

I’m thrilled to have my prints and plates keeping company with such amazing historical manuscripts in The Getty Museum’s, “Blurring the Lines; Manuscripts in the Age of Print” exhibition, up now until October 27th. They are part of an educational didactic in the exhibition showing how a woodcut or a copper engraving is made. The exhibition has examples of the integration of printmaking with illuminated manuscripts in the Middle Ages. The prints I did are inspired by “Studies of Peonies”, by Martin Schongauer from the late 1400’s. I was delighted to work with Larisa Grollemond, the Assistant Curator of Manuscripts at the Getty on this. What a dream project! Below are some images of the project in process.
