Printing the grand manner : Charles Le Brun and monumental prints in the age of Louis XIV by Louis Marchesano( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reproductive printmaking was not a second-rate exercise; engravers were highly trained and imaginative artists who developed their own style. Le Brun eagerly controlled the dissemination of engravings produced using his original concepts and knew exactly to whom he would commit his ideas, frequently preferring the mixed etching and engraving technique of Gerard Audran, for example, to the linear rigor of Gerard Edelinck. Printing the Grand Manner--a beautifully designed, large format book filled with detailed illustrations of the prints allows readers to closely examine the "handwriting" of each engraver, leading to a rich understanding of their unique artistic gifts
Display & art history : the Düsseldorf gallery and its catalogue by Thomas W Gaehtgens( Book )

16 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This richly illustrated book examines the making of one of the earliest modern catalogues -- La galerie électorale de Dusseldorff. Published in 1778, the revolutionary two-volume publication showcases one of the most important European painting collections of the eighteenth century, reflecting a pivotal moment in the history of art as well as the history of the art museum. In two essays, the authors analyze the process by which the catalogue was produced and shed light on the historical and cultural context that gave rise to an innovative and didactic way of displaying paintings -- and, by extension, to art history as a discipline. The volume accompanies an exhibition of the same name to be held at the Getty Research Institute from May 31 to August 21, 2011"--Publisher's description
A kingdom of images : French prints in the age of Louis XIV, 1660-1715 by Peter Fuhring( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book includes a rich and fascinating consideration of the golden age of French printmaking. Once considered the golden age of French printmaking, Louis XIV's reign saw Paris become a powerhouse of print production. During this time, the king aimed to make fine and decorative arts into signs of French taste and skill and, by extension, into markers of his imperialist glory. Prints were ideal for achieving these goals; reproducible and transportable, they fueled the sophisticated propaganda machine circulating images of Louis as both a man of war and a man of culture. This richly illustrated catalogue features more than one hundred prints from the Getty Research Institute and the Bibliotheque nationale de France in Paris, whose print collection Louis XIV established in 1667. An esteemed international group of contributors investigates the ways that cultural policies affected printmaking; explains what constitutes a print; describes how one became a printmaker; studies how prints were collected; and considers their reception in the ensuing centuries. 0Exhibition: Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, USA (18.06-06.09.2015) / Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, France (02.11.2015-31.01.2016)

The Display of Art in Eighteenth-Century Europe colloquium( Recording )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The materials comprise audio recordings of a colloquium on the Display of Art in Eighteenth-Century Europe that was held at the Getty Research Institute February 3-4, 2011. During this event, scholars shared their research on the history of the picture gallery in eighteenth-century Europe as part of the Getty Research Institute's annual scholar theme on the display of art. Works of art had been traditionally displayed as part of palace collections known in German as Kunstkammern, where they were compactly hung, covering entire walls with little art-historical consideration. Beginning in the Enlightenment, such Kunstkammern gave way to didactic displays, where paintings were grouped by schools. This new approach was also reflected in the recording and narration of these displays in illustrated catalogues. These shifts eventually gave rise to the modern museum and museum catalogue
