History of Prints|
Fall 2012 not offered
This course examines the techniques, production, circulation, and collection of prints in Europe and the United States from the 15th century to the present. Until the invention of photography, printmaking was the sole means of reproduction and was vital for the communication of ideas and the spread of artistic styles. In the 19th century, as photography rapidly took on the role of reproduction, printmakers reconsidered the artistic possibilities for the medium, reemphasizing the artist's touch, and turning to renewed political uses. The course discusses aesthetics, connoisseurship, commerce, and technology.
