An Art history Capstone Exhibition
January 30-June 30, 2018
The transfer of engraved images, first in clay and stone, onto another surface is an art form with utilitarian origins dating back to ancient Mesopotamia. Over the millennia, Asian artists began to use wood for printmaking in an effort to transfer images onto fabrics. In ancient Greece and Rome, artists carved lines into metal for the decoration of armor and ritual objects, an artform that continued well into Medieval times. These developments paved the way for the German innovation of intaglio printing techniques in the 1430s. For the past six centuries, artists have practiced various forms of intaglio printmaking--principally engraving and etching.
Drawing from the Miami University Art Museum's extensive collection of printed works created by artists including Rembrandt, Goya, and Whistler, the 2017 Art History Capstone students offer an exploration of the use of space as represented in intaglio prints produced from the early 1500s to late 1800s. This course was taught by Professor Andrew Casper with assistance from the staff of the Art Museum.
