Grasselli, Margaret Morgan, Smentek, Kristel, Walsh, Judith G.


One of the most glorious and creative periods in the history of color printmaking occurred in eighteenth-century France. Newly invented engraving and etching techniques were combined with new ways of printing a single image from multiple plates, allowing printmakers to replicate a broad palette of colors using variants of only four: blue, red, yellow and black. The resulting prints were so believable that they were often called "printed paintings" and "engraved drawings." One of very few books available in English on the subject, this publication is an indispensable addition to the literature on this topic. Reproducing all the featured prints in color for the first time, the images are supported by a range of scholarly essays.Grasselli, Margaret Morgan is the author of 'Colorful Impressions The Printmaking Revolution in Eighteenth-Century France' with ISBN 9780853318927 and ISBN 0853318921.
