Versified prints : a literary and cultural phenomenon in eighteenth-century France by W. McAllister Johnson( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The term 'versified prints' is used to describe images that are accompanied by poetic explanatory text. They were immensely popular and diffused throughout Europe in the eighteenth century, and many were shown at the Salon du Louvre. Although not all print verses are signed, their authors include occasional poets and members of the Académie Franc̜aise. These prints remain among the most accessible documents for the study of art and society, but have never been examined before for their historical and cultural context. With 112 full-page reproductions, Versified Prints offers an engaging and informative introduction to these intriguing works. W. McAllister Johnson's guide discusses print production, the nature of sources, and the relationship and transformations in both text and images. Proposing a typology and methodology for this artistic phenomenon, Versified Prints enhances our knowledge of this fascinating new area of research and lays the groundwork for future studies."--Publisher's website

The rise and fall of the fine art print in eighteenth-century France by W. McAllister Johnson( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sanctioned by France's Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture and struck primarily in order to disseminate the works of the Academy's members, the eighteenth-century fine art print flourished only briefly. Yet it set into motion the interdependence of graphic and pictorial media. In The Rise and Fall of the Fine Art Print in Eighteenth-Century France, W. McAllister Johnson distills a lifetime of research into an essential study of this seminal phenomenon and chronicles the issues, decisions, and practicalities inherent in making copperplate engravings as articles of art and commerce. His exceptional erudition makes this an unparalleled resource for the study of visual culture and of all aspects of printmaking before the French Revolution."--
