This book offers a new look at works by notable French artists represented in the collection of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. Color reproductions of fifty-eight works—ranging from chalk drawings by Charles François 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.

Anne Higonnet is professor of art history at Barnard College. Richard Kendall is curator-at-large for the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute.

"In all, the treatment of different media in a single catalogue is refreshing and enables the authors to address essential questions of style, technique, and process in the work of four highly distinct artists. . . . Clarke is to be commended for bringing together such top-notch expertise in a single volume."—Anne Leonard, H-France Review
