Marking the Museum’s entrance into online publishing, Altered States: Etching in Late 19th-Century Paris combines a scholarly collection of essays with a video glossary of printmaking techniques. The online publication compliments the exhibition by the same name that was on view at the RISD Museum June 30 –December 3, 2017. In late 19th-century Paris, the printmaking process of etching underwent a revolutionary transformation. At a time when prints were usually made as copies of paintings rather than as original works of art, a revival of interest in etching led to greater knowledge of technique, allowing artists to experiment with subject matter and process more than ever before. The publication focuses on the creativity and experimentation that proliferated in these years, during and after etching’s revival, and the centrality in this important shift.
