Prints

Work from the 20th Century forms the strongest part of the Print Collection. This is in part due to a large donation from the printmaker Lady Mabel Annesley in the 1930s. She was one of the foremost exponents of wood engraving in Britain, masterfully transcribing light and shade into her blocks. As well as her own work her donation includes painterly engravings by Gwen Raverat, dreamlike figures of Blair Stanton, and depictions of nature by Paul Nash.

The collection also boasts examples of many different printing methods including:

  • 17th and 18th century Italian, Dutch and Flemish etchings and engravings
  • British etchings of the first half of the 20th century
  • contemporary prints by Irish, British, Continental and American artists
  • 20th century posters.

The collection is always growing. Recent acquisitions reflect the rise of Northern Irish fine art photography, exemplified by artists such as Paul Seawright and Mary McIntyre.
