Between 1890 and 1905, prints became extremely popular in Paris, and leading artists such as Bonnard, Gauguin and Toulouse-Lautrec embraced the medium. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, this catalogue reproduces more than 160 prints, posters, theatre programmes and book illustrations from the period. The accompanying essays examine how the fashion for printmaking developed, describe the various techniques and explore the numerous applications of this ‘new notion’ of art.
