Los Angeles: The J. Paul Getty Museum, 2016. Hardcover. VG. Black & illus. boards with black cloth spine, 174 pp., many BW or duotone illus. Issued in conjunction with a 2016 exhibition of relevant artwork. "From Gustave Courbet's shadowy Realist masterpieces to Maxime Lalanne's graceful landscape, from Odilon Redon's fantastical lithographs to Georges Seurat's evocative Postimpressionist figures, this splendid catalogue explores the prolfieration of black media in nineteenth-century French drawings and prints. Thanks to the technological advances of the era, an abundance of black drawing media exploded onto the market, giving rise to unprecedented experimentation in drawing and printmaking." (back cover) Nine illustrated essays examine the themes. The exhibition checklist cites 69 pieces, and most if not all are pictured here, throughout the text. Includes a subtantial bibliography.
