Abstract: Who has the right to make reproductions of artworks? What counts as an illegal copy? How do new technologies and creative practices disrupt existing norms governing the circulation of images? As a way of historicising these questions, this presentation will return to an Irish court case from 1860, Turner v. Robinson, which exposed growing tensions within the market for reproductions of fine art at a crucial transition period in the history of photography and public access to art.
