Curator’s Foreword

Humans have always had a need to convey themselves through images. When the possibility of reproducing the image was discovered, it was a major breakthrough. Now it was possible to spread pictures to a wider audience. The oldest surviving print in China is on silk (before 220 A.D.). Today, printmaking still has a strong position as a means of graphic art expression in China, despite the fact that many new graphic techniques have been added since then. In this exhibition, the Chinese graphic art works are mainly woodcuts. In Europe, the discovery of the art of printing in the 15th century was a turning point and many artists were hired to make illustrations for books, as well as artistic images for a growing market of collectors. In Sweden, a number of associations have played a very important role in keeping printmaking alive: Föreningen för grafisk Konst / The Swedish Fine Art Print Society (1887), Grafiska sällskapet / The Swedish Printmakers´ Association (1910), Konstfrämjandet / The People´s Movements for Art Promotion (1947) and later Grafikens Hus (1996). All of them have contributed to disseminating the original graphic art and craftsmanship to a large audience all over the world. Today, artists have a variety of techniques at their disposal, and mixing them is not uncommon to achieve the desired result.
