The Printed Line showcases the work of nearly 60 artists who have used a variety of printmaking techniques to exploit the potential of the printed line, from the thick velvety line of drypoint and the heavy cross-hatching of etching to delicate wood engraving and boldly coloured screenprints and lithographs. Spanning the 20th century and up to the present day, this Arts Council Collection touring exhibition includes Henri Matisse’s Le Grand Bois, an expressive counterpoint of ornamental patterns, Ben Nicholson's rich drypoint Halse Town 1949, and David Hockney's pared down linear etchings in Illustrations for Fourteen Poems from C. P. Cavafy. The use of colour will also be explored in screenprints by Sarah Whiteread, Bridget Riley and Patrick Caulfield, as well as Simon Patterson's witty lithograph reworking the lines of the London tube map. Also featuring work from Frank Auerbach, Eduardo Chillida, Prunella Clough, Keith Coventry, Derek Boshier, Paul Coldwell, Lizzie
