Synopsis:

This highly anticipated and beautifully illustrated book examines the evolution of early printmaking in late medieval Europe. Through their means of production and the evidence of their utility, prints are explored in a broad social and economic context. Key topics include the complex problem of reconstructing the beginnings of the European woodcut; the practice of copying and dissemination of models endemic to the medium; and the varied functions of the print from the spiritual to the secular.

A team of expert authors examines the many ways in which fifteenth-century woodcuts and  metalcuts reflect the nature of piety and visual experience. Replicated images helped to structure private religious practice, transmit beliefs, disseminate knowledge about material facts, and graph abstract ideas. Mass-produced pictures made it feasible for people of all stations to possess them, thereby initiating a change in the role of images that eventually helped alter the definition of art itself.

The Origins of European Printmaking is an essential book for art historians, students, and collectors, as well as the general reader with an interest in medieval history and culture.

About the Author:

Peter Parshall is curator and head of the department of Old Master prints at the National Gallery of Art, Washington. Rainer Schoch is vice director and head of the graphic arts collection at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremberg

Techniques of replication; Traces of an early style; Reception and markets; Passion and compassion; Intercession and instruction; The saints. Appendix: The Papers and their Watermarks, by Shelley fletcher. From the blurb: "Apart from their particular aesthetic allure, fifteenth- century woodcuts and metal cuts reflect attitudes toward the nature of piety and visual experience itself, enabling us in turn to understand the complex role of images in late medieval culture. In this beautifully 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. In the fifteenth century replicated images made the private ownership of pictures widely feasible for the first time. These mass-produced images helped structure private religious experience, transmit beliefs, disseminate knowledge about material facts, and chart abstract ideas. The authors explore these early reliefs primarily through the evidence of their utility: how those who first manufactured, purveyed, and acquired prints employed and understood them." Near Fine in a dustwrapper which has a small indentation on the front panel. Seller Inventory # ABE-28391
