Peter Milton’s prints play and tug at your imagination, drawing you into the details of the miniature worlds he creates within each of his works.
Milton is a world-renowned printmaker whose etchings and engravings have been exhibited in most major museums in the U.S. and Europe. He invented his own technique, combining lift-ground etching with engraving, which allowed him to create pieces with a subtlety and near-photorealism scarcely seen among his contemporaries.
The content of his work commonly adheres to themes, including architecture, history, memory and myth, all of which can be found in the above work, American Interior I, Family Reunion.
