Whistler and Pennell: Etching the City

Published on August 8, 2018

Whistler and Pennell: Etching the City captures the changing landscape of New York and London in the final years of the industrial revolution. Featuring 38 prints from two of the most influential and innovative etchers - James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) and Joseph Pennell (1857-1926), the exhibition highlights an important period in the history of etching known as the 'Etching Revival'. It explores how both artists championed a declining art medium, and their motivation to create a definitive technique and style.

The exhibition runs from 5/4-10/7/18 at the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Port Sunlight Village, Wirral, CH62 5EQ, UK.
