Materials Lab Workshop: Alternative Lithographic Processes

In this workshop at the Harvard Art Museums, participants will explore Théodore Géricault’s use of lithography with Christina Taylor, printmaker and assistant paper conservator, and Cassandra Albinson, the Margaret S. Winthrop Curator of European Art. Following an introduction to traditional and alternative lithographic processes and a close look at Géricault’s rare, surviving “stone paper” print matrix in the galleries, the group will engage in a discussion about the benefits and drawbacks of this experimental technique and about Géricault’s commitment to artistic innovation. Workshop attendees will then join Taylor in the Materials Lab to create their own prints using an alternative lithographic process.

This workshop will take place in the Materials Lab, Lower Level.
