The old town was formerly a fishing harbour which in 1301 was recorded to have 150 homesteads with 800 inhabitants. A mediaeval wooden lighthouse, known locally as a foïer, was built on a dune and lit by charcoal and faggots but this burned down several times. On one occasion at least it was as a result of the continuous conflict between the English and the French in the Hundred Years War. The chronicler Enguerrand de Monstrelet mentions that during 1414 the English garrison in Calais raided south and burned the town.[7] Eventually the lighthouse was replaced by a stone tower at the side of which a chapel was built in the 15th century, but this did not save it from further mishap. During the second siege of Montreuil in 1544, the English advanced from the south and burned 200 houses, the church and the mill as they passed through Berck. What was left of the place was then burned by the French on their way to relieve the siege.[8]
This book has a smidgen of his history with just enough details to give us a view into Banksy's perspective and goals, but not enough to identify him. And that's fine with me; I love the mystery of who he might be. He gets to remain "everyman" or any man and speak truth to power on our behalf. This book is a wonderful introduction to his work if you haven't seen "Exit Through the Gift Shop" or heard of him. And, if you're a big fan, it's a delight!
Some say I am a hustler, some say I am rockstar, some say I am true talent.... With a great personality to boot! Something that all these things have in common... Is that I made an impression...  I grabbed their attention with my art, I make them  linger with my words and a kind smile, and they relate me as I  relate to them because I love what I do.
Après le travail de finition des pinceauteuses, certaines pièces recevaient un apprêt. Composé d'un mélange de cire et d'amidon, il était appliqué sur la toile qui passait ensuite à la calandre à chaud. Pour satiner ces pièces elles étaient lissées à la bille d'agate ou de cristal fixée à l'extrémité d'un bras articulé - le lissoir. A partir de 1770, l'impression à la planche de cuivre gravée en creux permit les impressions monochromes, ce fut le début des scènes à personnages qui ont rendu si célèbres les toiles de Jouy. En 1797, un brevet écossais de 1783 fut mis en application, l'impression au rouleau de cuivre. La machine fonctionnant en continu permettait la production de 5000 mètres par jour. C'était un gain de temps considérable par rapport à la planche de cuivre.
