Engraving, an art form involving incising designs onto hard surfaces to make prints, has a rich history that evolved significantly in the 19th century, especially in France. During this period, advancements like the introduction of durable steel plates allowed for more detailed and longer-lasting prints. The era also saw the rise of lithography, complementing traditional engraving techniques. French artists in the 19th century, influenced by movements such as Romanticism and Impressionism, utilized engraving to express dramatic and emotional themes. Notable figures like Eugène Delacroix, Édouard Manet, and Edgar Degas pushed the boundaries of engraving to capture the essence of modern life and fleeting moments. Additionally, the 19th century was a golden age for illustrated books and periodicals, with engravings playing a crucial role in enhancing the visual appeal and accessibility of printed materials. This period solidified engraving's place as both an artistic and practical medium in French art and publishing.
