Sample text

I have chosen five key areas for discussion: lithographic imagery, particularly caricature; the illustrated press; comics; illustrated books; and popular prints. The images I discuss here were never considered high art, never destined for exhibitions, and yet they were designed for visual pleasure. Their projected audiences ranged widely. At one extreme were the illiterate or semiliterate classes who constituted the audience for popular prints in which the image could carry meaning exclusive of text.

Acknowledgment that these graphic media served as wellsprings of creativity for later artists whose work has been accorded higher status in art history is one intention of this study. A parallel can be drawn to the history of what was formerly called “primitive art,” which until the later twentieth century was written from the point of view of Western high art and rarely as a history in itself. This book attempts to sketch out a history of its own for illustrated print media. To give some idea of the novelty of this material, we should note that the word “illustrator” was not in common usage until well into the nineteenth century.
