Anne Desmet RA: An Italian Journey

June 23, 2018 @ 10:00 amOctober 14, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Anne Desmet RA is an artist who specialises in wood engravings, linocuts and collages. Significantly she is only the third wood
engraver ever to be elected to the membership of the Royal Academy of Arts (RA) in its 250-year history.

This exhibition at Gainsborough’s House brings together selected highlights from her Italian prints with the addition of some new works including a sequence of special wood engravings created this year to raise funds for the Gainsborough’s House capital project.

Many of the works in this exhibition are for sale along with a special limited edition version of the facsimile sketchbook presented in its own cloth-bound box with a related limited edition wood engraving created, printed and signed by the artist.
