A Strange New Beauty
In the mid-1870s, Degas was introduced to the monotype process - drawing in ink on a metal plate that was then run through a press, typically resulting in a single print. See this delightful show of what Degas created, now at the MOMA, through July 24, 2016.
The Wethersfield Academy will be offering a class in printmaking this fall. See Classes.
