Details

One of the most innovative wood engravers of the twentieth century, Gertrude Hermes OBE (1901–1983) developed a highly distinctive style that combined technical virtuosity with bold imagination.
She was the first woman engraver to be elected an Associate of the Royal Academy, becoming a full Royal Academician in 1971, in recognition of her inspirational work as a printmaker, sculptor and teacher. Drawing on the rich collections of the Ashmolean Museum, this exhibition demonstrates Hermes’s enduring fascination with the natural world – from her Jazz Age bird, fish and flower prints to her monumental coloured linocuts of the 1950s.
