‘A Gentle Wildness’: The Natural World of Gertrude Hermes
Gertrude Hermes, OBE, was one of the most exciting and innovative wood engravers of the 20th Century. This talk by Dr Caroline Palmer of the Ashmolean Museum will demonstrate her enduring fascination with nature – from water, whales and fish to trees and flowers.
With examples drawn from her sketchbooks, prints and sculpture, it will focus on her training and technique, as well as highlighting literary and personal influences on her work.
