Following from Printing Colour 1400–1700, Printing Colour 1700–1830 will be the first interdisciplinary assessment of Western colour printmaking in the long eighteenth century. It will bring together researchers, curators, special collections librarians, printers, printmakers, cataloguers, conservators, art historians, book historians, digital humanities practitioners, scientists, and others who care for colour-printed material, seek to understand them, or use them in research. The discussion will encompass all media, techniques, and functions, from fashion to fine art, wallpaper to scientific communication. The programme includes two days of papers, posters, and object sessions, and private views of nine collections.
