UK Publication Date

Dizzying Color presents some 170 French colour prints from the 19th century. Using colour at that time was a major factor in the market success of lithography, more than a century after its invention, as well as of other techniques.This new book, published to coincide with an exhibition at Muse Jenisch Vevey, is a compendium of the art of colour printmaking, using the exhibits as examples for all aspects of the trade. Introductory and topical essays and a selection of rare documents alongside the featured works reveal the effects of polychromy and the technical processes behind it in artistic production in France around 1890. The book explains in detail how colour engravings are made and how they differ from a colour print. It investigates the aesthetic purpose of using colour and how it was exploited by important artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Paul Gauguin, Odilon Redon, Paul Signac, douard Vuillard, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.Text in English and French.
