IMPRESSIONS OF COLOUR
Rediscovering Colour in Early Modern Printmaking, 1400-1700

This conference aims to explore new methodologies and foster new ways of understanding the development of colour printing in Europe through an interdisciplinary consideration of the production.
It features a demonstration of early colour printing techniques in the Historical Printing Room, a display of books with early colour printing at the University Library and a display of early colour prints at the Fitzwilliam Museum.
