Lithography’s First Half Century: The Age of Goya & Delacroix: Artists’ Lithographs in Europe: 1801-1851
Clifford S Ackley (au); Cynthia M. Purvis (ed). Catalog of an exhibit in the Dept. of Prints, Drawings, & Photographs, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Trustman Galleries, Jan. 10-July 7, 1996. An introductory essay explains how lithography, or “chemical printing,” was invented in Munich in 1796-1798 by the South German playwright & actor Aloys Senefelder (1771-1834), hoping to find a cheaper way of reproducing his plays. Artists soon began experimenting with this new means of multiplying original images. This exhibition celebrates Senefelder’s invention by presenting a selection of the first 50 years of lithographs produced by European & British artists, from 1801-1851. This catalog includes 53 black & white lithographs.
