FULLY BOOKED: Tour: A Passion for Prints - Odilon Redon

Thu 25 July 2024 , 1:30pm-2:30pm

Graves Gallery

Join David Alston to hear about the Graves Gallery’s latest display, A Passion for Prints: A Sheffield Collection. 


The exhibition tells the story of a father and son from Sheffield whose passion for prints led them to develop an outstanding collection, including works by Jacques Callot, Rembrandt, Edouard Manet, Odilon Redon, and more.  


David Alston will chart their story began and share insights into works on display, with a specific focus on Odilon Redon. This is the second in a series of three talks exploring A Passion for Prints’ changing focus displays. 


This tour forms part of the programme of events complementing the exhibition A Passion for Prints: A Sheffield Collection, which continues at the Graves Gallery until December 2024. 


As Deputy Director of Arts for Sheffield City Council, David led the City Art Galleries in the 1990s, before becoming the Keeper of Art in the National Museum of Wales.  He left Wales to become Galleries Director for the millennium project of The Lowry on Salford Quays, returning to Wales to be Arts Director for the Arts Council of Wales. He was awarded an MBE in 2020 for services to the Arts. His family base has been Sheffield since the 1980s when he arrived in the city to be the first Assistant Curator for the Ruskin Collection.
