A new exhibition at The Beaney in Canterbury considers how artists have used a variety of printmaking techniques to exploit the potential of the printed line from the 20th century to the present day.

The Printed Line (7 March-26 April, free entry, closed Mondays) includes Sickert's masterly cross-hatched etching The Old Middlesex, Ben Nicholson's rich drypoint Halse Town 1949, Eduardo Chillida's bold etchings and David Hockney's pared-down linear etchings in Illustrations for Fourteen Poems from C. P. Cavafy.

The use of colour is explored in screenprints by Bridget Riley and Kenneth Martin, as well as Simon Patterson's witty lithograph reworking the lines of the London tube map.

The exhibition features approximately 50 framed works and artists will include Frank Auerbach, Patrick Caulfield, Eduardo Chillida, Prunella Clough, Keith Coventry, Derek Boshier, Paul Coldwell, Lizzie Cox, Tracey Emin, Barry Flanagan, Lucian Freud, Derrick Greaves, Anthony Gross, Gertrude Hermes, David Hockney, Oskar Kokoschka. Kenneth Martin, Henri Matisse, Ben Nicholson, Eduardo Paolozzi, Simon Patterson, Pablo Picasso, Eric Ravilious, Walter Sickert, Richard Smith, Ian Tyson and Rachel Whiteread.

It also celebrates the publication of Hayward Gallery Publishing's A Century of Prints in Britain, which contains an essay by Julia Beaumont-Jones.
