ART 211 History of Printmaking
4 hours; 4 credits
The history of printmaking from its origins in the 15th century to the present. While the main emphasis will be placed on the relation of printmaking to contemporaneous activity in paintings, an effort will be made to define the individual character of such techniques as wood blockprinting, engraving, etching, mezzotint, aquatint, lithography, and screenprinting. The course will encourage connoisseurship by combining slide lectures with visits to museums and graphics studios.
