Where form meets function

The Brilliant Line opens Friday at Rhode Island School of Design’s Museum of Art. The exhibition explores the art of engraving and its rapid transformation during the European Renaissance (1480 – 1650), drawing on work from innovators such as Albrecht Durer.

Aside from the on-site, RISD has launched a fine interactive feature on their website. There you may explore details of chosen engravings and watch a video detailing  the steps of engraving. Relatively low tech, but still enough to engage in the technical process behind the prints. The exhibition will run until January 3, 2010.
