HOULD, Claudette

Regular price $35.00 Sale

From the dustjacket: "This volume contains reproductions of more than 250 original 18th-century prints (blocks, line engravings, etchings) selected for their historic, political and ideological content as well as their beauty. In addition to chronicling the history of print-making during the Revolutionary period, the catalogue tells the story of the French Revolution itself as experienced by those who portrayed its extraordinary events with all the emotion of eye witnesses. These images are accompanied by scholarly, fascinating texts penned by Claudette Hould, Director of the Art History Department of the Universite du Quebec a Montreal, and several eminent historians."
