The Renaissance print, 1470-1550 by David Landau( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and German and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Printmaking matured in western Europe between 1470 and 1550, when the great generation of artists and printmakers brought international recognition to print as an art form. This book examines the technical and aesthetic experimentation that went into printmaking, workshop practices, and the material and social contexts of print production, and it gives the fullest account ever written of the ways in which Renaissance prints were produced, distributed, and acquired. David Landau and Peter W. Parshall pose a range of practical questions about the production of prints. They investigate, for example, what materials were used, how they were acquired, and how a Renaissance printmaker's workshop operated. They explore the evidence that individual prints were beginning to be esteemed as works of art rather than as inexpensive substitutes for them, and the relationship between prints made to be collected and those of a more ephemeral nature intended for a wider audience. They discuss how prints were valued during the period, including the relative value of woodcuts to engravings, and engravings to etchings. And they investigate how prints evolved in relation to the pictorial arts of the Renaissance generally. Examining documentary evidence and many individual prints, Landau and Parshall provide an integrated view of the Renaissance print as a social and artistic enterprise and reevaluate the achievements of the most influential phase in the history of European printmaking. -- Publisher's website
Origins of European printmaking : fifteenth-century woodcuts and their public by Peter W Parshall( Book )

23 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this illustrated book, an international team of scholars examines and reinterprets more than one hundred distinctive works, challenging long-standing assumptions about the beginnings of printmaking and exploring the very origins of a transformation in media that has had a profound impact on Western culture." "Central aspects of this study are the complex problem of reconstructing the beginnings of the European woodcut and defining its earliest characteristics, the practice of copying and disseminating models endemic to the medium, and the varied functions of the print from the spiritual to the secular. As the authors reveal, mass-produced pictures made it possible for people of all situations to possess them, thereby initiating a change in the role of images that are eventually helped after the definition of art itself."--Jacket
The unfinished print by Peter W Parshall( Book )

20 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When does a work of art achieve aesthetic resolution? Artists, collectors, and theorists since the Renaissance have been intrigued by this question in their attempt to understand the artistic endeavor. Prints claim a special place in this history. The Unfinished Print investigates the changing taste for prints that reveal the traces of their making, a subject never before considered across its full historical sweep, from the fifteenth to the early twentieth century."--Jacket
The woodcut in fifteenth-century Europe by Peter W Parshall( Book )

17 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The advent of printing in Western Europe is a familiar historical milestone; far less known is the emergence of a technology of image printing more than a generation before Gutenberg

The darker side of light : arts of privacy, 1850-1900 by Peter W Parshall( Book )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For many today, the art of the late nineteenth century is equated with impressionism and post-impressionism. This book with its insightful essays and remarkable works of art presents us with an alternative account of the period." "For collectors the experience of prints, drawings, and small sculptures was often a private affair, like taking a book down from the shelf for quiet enjoyment. Prints and drawings were kept aside, compiled in albums and portfolios, while medals and bronzes were often placed in the seclusion of the library. In short, such works of art were not typically a part of one's day-to-day environment in the manner of a framed object hung on a wall. Rather, they were subject to purposeful study on chosen occasions. From the beginning this element of discreteness allowed for degrees of experiment, leading artists to some times recherche, sometimes enigmatic, and often melancholy subjects that indulged the solitary circumstances of their reception." "By explicating a range of highly engaging, often mysterious and beautiful objects, The Darker Side of Light evokes the shadowed interiors and private introspections that compose a far less familiar history of late nineteenth century art."--Jacket
The power of prints : the legacy of William M. Ivins and A. Hyatt Mayor by Freyda Spira( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Metropolitan Museum of Art curators William M. Ivins and A. Hyatt Mayor assembled one of the world's greatest collections of prints, from Renaissance masterpieces to popular and ephemeral works. Celebrating the power of prints not only as aesthetic objects but also as rich sociohistorical documents, Ivins and Mayor expanded our appreciation of prints as the most democratic art form. Collecting across the full spectrum of the medium and writing about prints in accessible language, they transformed notions of how art reaches the masses. The first comprehensive exploration of the lives, careers, theories, and influences of Ivins and Mayor, this book also showcases more than 125 exceptional prints that represent the breadth and depth of their acquisitions, including works by Mantegna, Dürer, Callot, Rembrandt, Goya, Whistler, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Cassatt. The Power of Prints is a fitting tribute to two innovative scholars, as well as a timely meditation on the display and appreciation of art." -- Publisher's description
