Engravings and etchings were rendered almost entirely in lines until the advent of mezzotint and aquatint in the 17th and 18th centuries. These technical innovations made it possible for prints to present the complete range of tonal values, from subtlest silver to deepest black and everything in between. This exhibition presents a history of these techniques by highlighting examples from the early eighteenth century to the late twentieth century in the Museum's collection.
