Drawings for Prints II: Sébastien Le Clerc and Jane Hogarth

October 12, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am UTC-5

The acts of drawing and printmaking have always been intertwined. Historically, drawing has been the space of inspiration and development before setting the burin to plate or crayon to stone. This virtual panel will showcase case studies by emerging scholars. The subject of this panel is inspired by this year’s Master Drawings New York showcase at IFPDA: Drawings for Prints.

Sébastien Le Clerc (1637-1714) and the Value of Preparatory Drawings for Prints: an Early Interest in the Artistic Process?Antoine Gallay
In the early 18th-century onward, drawings became highly appreciated by amateurs as a means to evoke the artistic process and access the artist’s mind or genius. By considering Sébastien Le Clerc (1637-1714), one of the most celebrated printmakers of his time, we examine the impact of this concept on artists’ practices, with a consideration of how Le Clerc’s conception of drawing evolved at the end of his career and how it was connected to the way his work was considered within amateurs’ circles.

Antoine Gallay is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Geneva. He earned his PhD in both art history and the history of science and then received fellowships from the Cohn Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Ideas at Tel Aviv University and the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich. His research focuses on the status and practices of draughtsmen and printmakers in Ancien Régime France.

Read the Fine Print!: ‘Publish’d as the Act directs by Jane Hogarth’
Cristina S. Martinez
The paper discusses prints that were published by Jane Hogarth from drawings made by her late husband, William Hogarth. An analysis of select prints and their publication line will explore the various relationships that existed between parties involved in the creation of a print from an original drawing and of the related copyright implications.

Cristina S. Martinez is an interdisciplinary art historian who holds a PhD from Birkbeck College, University of London. She has published essays on 18th-century British art, the work of William Hogarth, the history of copyright law and artistic practices of appropriation. She currently teaches in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa.
