Engraving for the King

At the Louvre Museum, Paris

Engravings were an important art form back in the 18th century. While we still borrow some of the basic techniques in modern art practices, the methods and images of engraving are very much an old-fashioned, rarely seen approach. That is why the Engraving for the King exhibition at the Louvre is such an interesting show for spring 2019.

This show is made up of three component parts – the commission from Colbert for Louis XIV, a series of pieces from the same period from the Edmond de Rothschild’s collection and additional artefacts from the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. There are 120 works in total that include these stunning original copper plates and some prints to illustrate their images – as created by the team at the Louvre. This helps to bring the pieces to life. It is an interesting look at an overlooked art form and should be enjoyed before it closes on May 20th.
