This comprehensive catalogue of the prints and engraved illustrations by and after Henry Fuseli explores the nature and extent of Fuseli's role as history painter cum illustrator. It documents the intricate financial, artistic and business practices that shaped the complex working relationships between artist, engraver, printer and publisher.
