Summary "For half a century after its introduction in Europe, printmaking remained the province of a specially trained group of professionals. What changed this situation was the invention of etching, which allowed for designs to be drawn directly onto a plate. Any competent draftsman could try his hand at this; many did, and as a result, we now have a wide-ranging corpus of major Renaissance and Baroque graphics made by artists who, though famous as painters, were novices in the print medium." "Featuring essays by Michael Cole, Larry Silver, Susan Dackerman, Graham Larkin, and Madeleine Viljoen, The Early Modern Painter-Etcher spans three centuries, from the time of Durer to that of Goya, and looks at works executed by some seventy painters for whom printmaking was primarily an experimental field."--BOOK JACKET.
