Edouart Scissor Hands

August 7, 2014 - October 12, 2014

Free

This is a rare opportunity to enjoy the Holburne’s collection of portraits by the French silhouette-cutter Augustin Edouart (1789-1861). The realism and detail of Edouart’s full-length characters, simply cut out of black paper “by scissors alone”, is remarkable. The exhibition will include some of his finest and most famous silhouettes.

Thanks to the generosity of The Leche Trust and David Pike, the fragile paper cut-outs have now been cleaned, repaired and mounted so that they can be enjoyed by everyone. In most cases, this is the first time they have been exhibited since the Holburne acquired them in 1931
