All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Joseph Hecht (1871-1951), engraver, painter and printmaker was born and educated in Poland, made Paris his base from 1920. He developed innovative methods of printing engravings in relief, teaching, and influencing many artists, including British surrealist painter and printmaker Stanley William Hayter, and South African-born British painter and printmaker Dolf Rieser. Hecht also cofounded the important Paris printmaking cooperative "Atelier 17". His work is included in some of the most prestigious art collections in the world including the British Museum; Brooklyn Museum; Chalcographie du Louvre; Delft Museum; Hague Museum; Metropolitan Museum of Art; Museum of Tel-Aviv; Victoria and Albert Museum, and now Auckland’s Blikfang Gallery in New Zealand. Part of the Blikfang Gallery Permanent Collection is a series of original Joseph Hecht engravings, the suites, Nouveaux Croquis d'Animaux and L’Arche Noe (Noah’s Ark).  These suites contain images of animals, a subject that fascinated Hecht throughout his career.

The Hecht collection will be on display alongside sculptures by artist Bronwynne Cornish, cut outs by Sheridan Keith, photographs by Lezanne Gibbs and intaglio/relief prints by Ben Reid. Some works will be for sale, a well as a catalogue ($15) containing an essay by Victoria Wynne-Jones and rare photo documentation of both Nouveaux Croquis d'Animaux and L’Arche Noe.
