The Romance of Ruins – the Etchings of George Cuitt

20 July 2024 - 12 January 2025

Gallery One

George Cuitt (1779-1854) was Chester’s greatest Regency artist. His etchings of the city’s medieval architecture and the ruined abbeys of Yorkshire invite us to look again at these familiar places. Clearly indebted to the picturesque tradition, Cuitt always retained his unique point of view. This exhibition draws extensively from the Grosvenor Museum’s art collection, revealing anew a master of print-making for the first time in nearly 200 years.
