"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."--BOOK JACKET
The unfinished print by Peter W Parshall ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 439 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."--BOOK JACKET

The darker side of light : arts of privacy, 1850-1900 by Peter W Parshall ( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 355 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."--BOOK JACKET
