Compiled in honor of Marjorie B. Cohn, the Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Curator of Prints Emerita at the Fogg Museum, this book gathers forty-eight essays by art historians, curators, and conservators writing about European and American prints, drawings, photographs, paintings, or books from the Renaissance to the twentieth century. Most of the essays are by Harvard-trained scholars and deal with one work of art or a group of related artworks, or a single issue in an artist’s oeuvre or within a more general topic such as the history of printing. The emphasis is on new discoveries or overlooked themes, and the essays are presented to honor a professional known for her wide interests and discerning connoisseurship.
