ELIZABETH SAVAGE: German Renaissance woodcuts at the British Museum

In the last ten years, art historians have begun to recognise the significance of colour in print history—but the role of printed colour in books has been overlooked. This lecture offers a new approach, one centred on printers, based on a survey of the British Museum’s holdings of German prints, ephemera, broadsides, and books printed in 1450–1600.

The lecture will be followed by the launch of Early Colour Printing: German Renaissance Woodcuts at the British Museum (Paul Holberton Publishing, in association with the British Museum, 2021).
