We must expect great innovations to transform the entire technique of the arts, thereby affecting artistic invention itself and perhaps even bringing about an amazing change in our very notion of art.” Paul Valry, Pièces sur L’Art, 1931 Le Conquete de l’ubiquite When Marx undertook his critique of the capitalistic mode of production, this mode was in its infancy.Marx directed his efforts in such a way as to give them prognostic value.All others were unique and could not be mechanically reproduced.With the woodcut graphic art became mechanically reproducible for the first time, long before script became reproducible by print.But only a few decades after its invention, lithography was surpassed by photography.For the first time in the process of pictorial reproduction, photography freed the hand of the most important artistic functions which henceforth devolved only upon the eye looking into a lens.The enormous changes which printing, the mechanical reproduction of writing, has brought about in literature are a familiar story.However, within the phenomenon which we are here examining from the perspective of world history, print is merely a special, though particularly important, case.
It would therefore be wrong to underestimate the value of such theses as a weapon.
During the Middle Ages engraving and etching were added to the woodcut; at the beginning of the nineteenth century lithography made its appearance.
With lithography the technique of reproduction reached an essentially new stage.
Mechanical reproduction of a work of art, however, represents something new.
Historically, it advanced intermittently and in leaps at long intervals, but with accelerated intensity.
