Catherine Wilcox-Titus (Visual and Performing Arts) was invited to give a talk for an international group of print scholars at a conference in Bordeaux, France on October 10-11.

The subject of the conference was the transfer of lithographic print technology from France to America in the early part of the 19th century.

Her talk focused on how the demand for inexpensive prints of heroes such as Napoleon and Lafayette helped grow the foundation for the emergence of a truly popular visual culture later in the century.

The conference was funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art and organized by Georgia Barnhill, curator emerita of the American Antiquarian Society.

Catherine’s essay was printed in the monograph, With a French Accent: American Lithography to 1860, published by the American Antiquarian Society in 2012.
