"Precision and Prestige: The Arts of Engraving"
2001-08-11 until 2001-08-11
Fogg Art Museum, Harvard
Cambridge, MA, USA

This exhibition will show examples of engraving, which was the printmaking technique of the highest status from the 15th through the 19th centuries and yet is now practically extinct. Examples of engraving as a craft and as a fine art will be presented, with attention paid to the function of the technique, the syntax of its graphic systems, and the relationship of technique to expression.

The exhibition includes not only masterpieces by artists ranging from Dürer to Picasso, but also stock certificates, scientific instruments, and maps, to show more mundane applications of engraving.
