“The Business of Art: Transforming the Graphics Arts in an Age of Mechanical Reproduction” (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: “The Business of Art: Transforming the Graphics Arts in an Age of Mechanical Reproduction”
Abstract: The Business of Art analyzes the financial underpinnings and creative output of artists, printers, publishers, and others in Philadelphia’s art world and aims to provide new perspectives on the production and distribution of graphic materials between about 1820 and 1870. I explore such areas as entrepreneurship, innovation, and marketing to more fully understand the interplay of economics, social forces, and art. The project focuses on Philadelphia, but necessarily addresses interactions with individuals and businesses in Boston, Baltimore, London, and other places.
