Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers, State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, 1992. Organized in association with Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.

Examining the rise of the color etching as a new vehicle for artistic experimentation in late 19th-century France, this catalogue reproduces some 200 prints by Villon, Jourdain, Cassatt, Steinlen, Riviere, Robbe and more than 40 other artists, including technically innovative portraits, studies of Parisian street scenes and cafe society, landscapes and diverse other works. Preceded by an introductory essay tracing the evolution of color printing in Europe beginning in the 17th century, two substantial texts discuss in detail the influence of Japanese woodblock prints and the work of master printmaker Eugene Delatre (1854-1938) on the development of the medium in Paris, and the importance of publishers, dealers and etching societies to the art form's proliferation at the turn of the century. **Hardcover edition is out of print; paperbound edition may still be available.**
