The list of authors: Illustrators (dib.) , Printmakers (grav.) , Inventors (inv.) , Lithographs (lit.) and the list of Titles want to facilitate your search terms as there are only three titles corresponding to the DATABASE.

So you can search for the registered prints by:

- Keyword

Words found in the titles, previously referred to, bearing in mind that:

  • Spelling during the nineteenth century is not often standardized, for example the word lithografia.
  • Truncation is automatic. From the root word the database will retrieve all registers containing the different variants of the root entry. For example, if we enter the root monast we will find the prints that contain the word monastery or monastere.

- Author (name drawn from the above list).

- Technique (for now only the techniques of intaglio and lithography).
