Event Description

Brass Rubbing

Brass rubbing was originally a largely British pastime for reproducing on paper monumental brasses – commemorative brass plaques found in churches, usually originally on the floor, from between the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries. The concept of recording textures of things is generally called making a rubbing. Brass rubbings are created by laying a sheet of paper on top of a brass and rubbing the paper with graphite, wax, or chalk, a process similar to rubbing a pencil over a piece of paper placed on top of a coin. This collection is loaned to us by Illinois residents Charles and Jeanette Gilchrist White, who became interested in this art form in the 1960’s while Charles executed his Fulbright Scholarship Award in Great Britain.
