Note on Art

Subject

A note from LeRoy Neiman on artistic reference, specifically the prints of English caricaturist Thomas Rowlandson.

Description

This note from LeRoy Neiman on Thomas Rowlandson looks at the role of printmaking in the former artist's career. Unlike most of Neiman's writings on art, this particular record provides a more detailed account of print processes. In addition to this delineation, he places the works in the artist’s oeuvre according to both public perception at the time and personal aesthetic judgment. Rowlandson’s prints were very influential on Neiman’s style.
