The Crawford Art Gallery presents two exhibitions of printmaking:

Reconfigurations:
Prints of the 20th Century features works by Lucian Freud, Francis Bacon, William Scott, Pierre Soulages and Karel Appel among others, the exhibition seeks to look at printmaking as an art form and the vast range of printmaking techniques available to artists to create an image as a print in its own right – and not as an aide to painting or drawing.

The works on exhibition are selected from the Crawford
collection and private collections in Ireland and the UK.

Displaced:
The Alice Schwab Collection of 20th Century Art consists of a selection of work on paper from the personal collection of Liesel Rosenthal (Alice Schwabb), an avid collector of German and British prints of the 1920’s and 30’s, including works by Kathe Kollwitz (1867-1945), Paul Nash (1889–1946), Anthony Gross (1905–1984) and Carel Weight (1908–1997).

A refugee from Germany in the 1930's, Schwab settled in London, where she built up a personal collection of art that evokes memories of a postwar Europe very different to that of today.
