The invention and rapid growth of the printmaking medium of lithography over the course of the nineteenth century coincided with a similar expansion and development of landscape as an independent artistic subject. This exhibition of British and French landscape prints features examples by early lithographic masters, including Richard Cooper and Antoine Mongin, as well as dazzling color landscapes from the 1890s by Henri Rivière and Edouard Vuillard. Selected from the Zimmerli’s collection of nineteenth-century graphic arts, the exhibition demonstrates the remarkable technical and aesthetic approaches to portraying the landscape that characterize the innovative art of the 1800s.
