This book offers a new look at works by notable French artists represented in the collection of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. Colour reproductions of fifty-eight works - ranging from chalk drawings by Charles Francois Daubigny and Edgar Degas, to woodcuts by Paul Gauguin and lithographs by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec - accompany important reconsiderations of well-known works and print series. Essays by five prominent scholars consider the political, social, cultural, and market conditions that governed and motivated printmaking and drawing and examine how key artists contributed to the development of the graphic arts in 19th-century France. The volume concludes with a complete checklist of works included in the accompanying exhibition.
