Engraving prints given to the University of North Texas College of Visual Art and Design by Robert B. Toulouse
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

This collection of prints from Robert B. Toulouse was given to the University of North Texas College of Visual Arts and Design. Some prints are reproductions by commercial printing companies. Engravings based on the images of Hogarth are featured along with other images which appear to be from lithographs. Hogarth images include those from the Industry and Idleness series of works. A series of animal prints by B. Waterhouse Hawkins are also included along with this set of images.

Fine art prints in the form of engavings or etchings by printers such as Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) and Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) are also part of this collection. These prints are either original or they are prints which were hand pulled directly from the original plates using printer's ink. The recessed impression from the plate is visible on the paper.
