'Print REbels' presents a collection of 140 historical and contemporary original prints that was first brought together at the Bankside Gallery, London, in 2018 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of the founder and first President of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, Francis Seymour Haden.
This exhibition will include original prints by Haden, who created his finest work in Ireland, and those who inspired him (such as Rembrandt and Dürer), along with works by his contemporaries (including Samuel Palmer and JAM Whistler) together with compositions by printmakers across the 20th century up to today. This collection opens a window on printmaking across five centuries and will be a unique opportunity to see the work of printmaking greats.
'Print REbels: Haden – Palmer – Whistler and the origins of the RE (Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers)' has been published and will be available in the IGS bookshop during the course of this exhibition.
