JOHN GADSBY CHAPMAN: AMERICA'S FIRST ARTIST-ETCHER -- WITH A CATALOGUE OF HIS ITALIAN ETCHINGS. John F. McGuigan, Jr. and Mary K. McGuigan. Arcady Editions, Harpswell, 2015. 192 pp. with 112 col. ills. 28 x 24 cm. LC 2015-941999 ISBN 9780692454930 In English.
Publisher's description: The full-color volume includes an illustrated catalogue of forty-three original etchings of Italian subjects that Chapman produced over a span of more than fifty years, from his student days in Rome from 1828 to 1830 to his lengthy residence in Italy from 1849 to 1881, and includes four that he made after paintings by his sons John Linton Chapman (1839-1905) and Conrad Wise Chapman (1842-1910). Sixty-nine figures and gorgeous full-page details complement the text and augment our understanding of the Chapman family of painters. The present study will be of note to anyone interested in international 19th-century print culture and is especially timely and relevant in light of recent scholarship that seeks to redress the teleological tendency to privilege photography as the modern, authoritative standard against which all reproductivemedia are measured.
