History of Art - Visual Resources Centre: Bartsch Archive

Bartsch Archive

The Bartsch Archive contains mounted and unmounted photographs of prints from Johann Adam Bernard Ritter von Bartsch's Le Peintre Graveur. Bartsch (1757-1821) was an Austrian scholar, artist and printmaker; Le Peintre Graveur is considered by many to be the first modern comprehensive catalogue.

Composed of Old Master prints created by the most technically advanced painter-engravers of the time, the twenty-one volume catalogue was complated in 1821.
