ARTH 5408. The History of Printmaking. 3 Credit Hours.

The invention of the printing press in western Europe in the 1400s contributed to important and lasting changes about how people thought about images and image-making. In addition to gaining an understanding of the technical processes involved in the production of books, woodcuts, engravings, etchings, and lithographs, students will focus on the social and economic facets of print communication as an aesthetic and as a compelling component of visual culture. The course is designed chronologically but also according to themes and major artists, with the aim of relating the history of print and book culture to some of the broader cultural and artistic concerns of the period. Some of the central issues we shall discuss are the relationship between manuscript and early book production; the nature of the 'original' vs. the 'copy'; the space of prints as a realm for experimentation and new subject matter; the role of collaboration and also individual graphic virtuosity; and the modern 'print revivals' of the 19th and 20th centuries. We also shall reevaluate certain myths about the so-called printing revolution, poised as we are in a new digital age defined as another kind of explosion of images. Major figures we will study in terms of graphic virtuosity are Andrea Mantegna, Albrecht Dürer, Jacques Callot, Hendrick Goltzius, Rembrandt van Rijn, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Francisco Goya, Edouard Manet, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, Mary Cassatt, Edvard Munch, and Käthe Kollwitz.

ARTH 8401. Text + Image: Framing the Modern Illustrated Book. 3 Credit Hours.

Text or Image? Art or Craft? Page or Book? Essential or Ancillary? As these pairings propose, illustration engages the viewer in complex interrelated processes and hence functions very differently than other art forms. Image and text operate both independently and in combination as signifiers. Perhaps that is partially why we lack a critical framework with which to assess illustrated books. In this online course, we will use digital tools and collaborative technologies to develop evaluative criteria for the illustrated book and then apply this critical framework to an individually-selected case study. The seminar will also assess relevant factors impacting the development of illustrated books, such as cultural diffusion and interchange; patterns of literacy and education; production markets and aesthetic value of craft. Additionally, in the last part of the course, the focus will shift to book illustration in the period after 1850, addressing publishing technologies as well as noteworthy avant-garde exemplars. This has been created as an online course, which allows for a greater flexibility in the student's schedule; it may be adjusted for full classroom or hybrid. NOTE: Designed especially for current students enrolled in the MFA programs, in particular students of Graphic Design.

In addition to gaining an understanding of the processes involved in the making of woodcuts, engravings, etchings, and lithography, students will focus on the conceptual, social, political, and economic aspects of the art of the print. The course is designed chronologically but also according to themes and major artists, with the aim of showing that printmaking has its own history and at the same time relates to the broader cultural and artistic concerns of the period. Major figures we will study in terms of graphic virtuosity include Albrecht Dürer, Marcantonio Raimondi, Jacques Callot, Hendrick Goltzius, Rembrandt van Rijn, Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Francisco Goya, Mary Cassatt, James Abbott McNeil Whistler, and Otto Dix, among others. Students will have the opportunity to develop papers that dovetail with their own fields and interests, as well as with additional strengths of the museum collection, including Japanese, and modern American and Mexican prints.
