Mantegna and the Art of Printmaking

Joseph Manca Parkstone International PDF

Mantegna and the Art of Printmaking


antegna was the first great artist of the Italian Renaissance to invent his own compositions and reproduce them in multiple copies by printing the designs on paper. Mantegna spread his fame through what at the time was modern

technology. Long known in China, designs reproduced on paper had been made in the West since about 1400. The earliest prints in Europe were woodcuts, which were produced initially in countries north of the Alps, especially in Germany. In these early woodcuts, a block was cut so the part to appear in white would be removed and the areas left in relief would print as black when inked and pressed onto paper. This is the same principle behind the printing of letters in books, or as in a modern typewriter. Indeed, both woodcuts and printing were most widespread in the north of

Europe: Johann Gutenberg’s Bible and other major printing projects were produced at about the same time woodcuts were beginning to flourish north of the Alps. This development was aided by the growing abundance of paper, which could be produced in mass quantities because of improved manufacturing techniques. More important was the growing market, with the demand fuelled by a new group of middle-class buyers eager to acquire prints and printed books, many of them liberally illustrated with woodcuts. Aided by burgeoning demand, more abundant paper, and technological advances, the production of books and prints mushroomed in the late fifteenth century.

CHAPTER SIX: Compassion deficit disorder? The impact of consuming culture on children's relationships

Marci Green Karnac Books ePub

Diane Levin


I magine the following three responses to babies in distress. (Throughout this chapter, the gender of the child in the stories is used as it was reported. However, in the commentary, “he” and “she” is used interchangeably, unless otherwise indicated.)

A baby is crying in his crib. His father comes in and begins talking to him and gently patting his back. As the crying continues, the father picks up the baby and hugs and cuddles him. Each time the baby lets out a yelp, his father rubs his back and then begins to sing a soothing song. The baby gradually calms down and, as the singing continues, he begins to watch his father’s face and smile. The second baby is crying in her crib. In the course of flailing her arms and legs, her big toe seems to end up in her mouth almost by chance. She pauses as she focuses on what has just happened. Her crying slows and then stops as she begins sucking her toe in earnest.

The third baby also begins to cry in her crib. Her mother quickly enters the room and pushes a button on the electronic crib toy that the family received as a baby gift. Lights begin to flash and musicplays. As soon as the lights start flashing, the baby turns to the lights, stops crying and becomes completely still, as if in a daze.

Workspaces Collection Properties

Workspaces Collection Properties


Data Type



Gives the number of objects in the Workspaces collection. In previous versions of

Access, Count was useful for setting up loops to process all objects in a collection, as in the following code example. However, the For Each...Next loop is a more efficient way of iterating through the members of a collection (see the

Append section for an example of using For Each...Next to process all members of the Workspaces collection).

VBA Code

Private Sub cmdCount_Click()









wks As Workspace wks1 As Workspace wks2 As Workspace wks3 As Workspace wks4 As Workspace prp As Property intCount As Integer wksCount As Integer

Set wks1 = Workspaces(0)

Set wks2 = CreateWorkspace("Workspace1", "Admin", _

"", dbUseJet)

Workspaces.Append wks2

Set wks3 = CreateWorkspace("Workspace2", "Admin", _
