Intaglio Techniques

A key component of the history of the University’s art museum is its role in instruction and its function as a teaching museum. Not only does the history of exhibitions reflect periods of art and profiles of artists, but it also includes many exhibits that demonstrate how art is created. In the folder containing materials for the 1977 exhibit, “Intaglio Techniques,” images mounted on thick boards that display the intaglio printmaking process were found:
