ARTH563 - Topics in German Art: Romantic Print Culture
Section 401 - SEM
German book readers of the nineteenth century were increasingly not only interacting with text, but with images as well. This seminar explores the flood of illustrated books and journals in the Romantic period, considering issues such as: economics (an enlarged and aspirational middle class consumer audience); new reproductive print technologies; aesthetic shifts/theories of illustration; women as readers and editors; new book forms (albums, almanacs, Taschenbücher). We will make use of the holdings of the Penn Rare Books Library, and will also visit the exhibition "The Enchanted World of German Romantic Prints 1770 – 1850," which will open at the end of 2013 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
