The English printmaker John Baptist Jackson travelled to Venice in 1730 and tried to make an income from his woodcut prints. In this talk Rosie Razzall, co-curator of this exhibition, brings to life the story of an ambitious printmaking project and Jackson's struggle for recognition in an international revival of a sixteenth-century printmaking process known as chiaroscuro woodcut.
