Rembrandt van Rijn, Circumcision in the stable  1654.

A collection of prints featuring the work of European masters including Picasso, Rembrandt, Renoir and Goya are now on display at the Lismore Regional Gallery.

Known as the Lakeview Collection, the prints are from a private collection which its Wagga Wagga-based owners wanted to share with the public.

The owners approached the gallery, and after the proper checks were carried out, the gallery jumped at the chance to show the works.

The collection spans from the work of Old Masters; Rembrandt and Goya, to Modern Masters; Renoir, Picasso, Chagall and Miro. It ends in the 20th century, touching the world of popular entertainment with Destino, a fascinating collaboration between Walt Disney and Salvador Dali.

The exhibition, titled Beguile: European Masters: 17th – 20th Century, will be on display until 6 May.

Also highlighted in the exhibition is the relationship between artists, master printers, and publishers.

Containing etchings, lithographs and serigraphs, some of the prints are the product of a creative relationship between an artist and master printer, whereby the artist worked with a skilled technician (master printer) to translate their ideas into the medium of print.

Printmaking was (and is) a valued artistic medium with unique technical requirements, but it also enabled original art to be made in multiple. This increased interest in art by making it more accessible.
