The Renaissance print 1470-1550

£100.00

Product description

Yale University Press, New Haven 1994. Condition Good. Some rubbing to and small tears to top of spine on DJ.

The illustrative print, and its ability to be reproduced, has long been regarded as extremely important to the history of art, yet there has been no work published on the subject for 80 years. This book covers the critical years of the development of the art of print-making between about 1470 and 1550 in both southern and northern Europe. The authors examine the topic from a variety of different angles, considering for instance the practicalities behind the production of prints, and the ways in which changes to technical methods affected the making of prints. They look at how prints were distributed to a wider audience than that available to more traditional works of art, and how this affected the content of the prints themselves. The resulting book gives a clear overview of how Renaissance prints of various sorts were made, distributed, acquired and finally used by the public, at a time when printmaking came to be adopted by well-known masters of the art.

Oxfam Bookshop Herne Hill

Situated between the London boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth, Herne Hill first appears on maps as farm and woodland in 1798. The bookshop is located opposite Brockwell Park, home to the beautifully restored Art Deco Lido, originally built in 1937, and well situated for a stroll to Dulwich picture gallery. Also notable are the unique Velodrome, dating back to 1891 and redesigned in 1948 for the Olympic Games, the grade two listed Half Moon Pub boasts a Boxing Gym run by former European and British Champion, Clinton McKenzie and the Carnegie Library, one of over two thousand public libraries built by the Scottish-American businessman and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. Prominent among Herne Hill's most famous former residents are John Ruskin, the influential Victorian socialist thinker, art critic, poet and conservationist.
