Description

George stubbs the complete engraved works : In a period when access to fine paintings was restricted, Stubbs’s reputation was spread chiefly through his engravings. This catalogue raisonnĂ© is the only single volume to contain all Stubbs’s known engravings and provides a complete record of prints made by others after his works. Introductory essays consider Stubbs’s relationships with other artists, particularly his engravers, and examine how the prints were originally marketed.Part 1 covers the more important prints issued during Stubbs’s lifetime, some of which are published here for the first time. Each of the 218 entries is fully illustrated and accompanied by comparative material. Part 2 comprises 440 supplementary entries and indicates the nature and extent of Stubbs’s posthumous reputation. This book also is the first substantial review of the work of a major 18th century British painter by reference to the important, but neglected, medium of reproductive prints.
