Prints of the Twentieth Century
by Riva Castleman
Works from the collection of New York City's Museum of Modern Art illustrate a history-survey of modern printmaking and of the styles, techniques, and modes of such masters as Chagall, Klee, Matisse, Miro, Picasso, and Rauschenberg.
Printmaking has attracted some of the greatest figures in twentieth-century art, and it is impossible to grasp the full significance of such movements as Expressionism, Surrealism or Pop Art without a knowledge of their printmaking achievements. Moreover, prints remain almost the only medium in which major works of art can be collected for a relatively modest sum. A fully revised and expanded edition, this book discusses the full range of printmaking techniques and the major artists of the medium--from Bonnard and Munch through Picasso to Hockney, Stella and today's avant-garde. The illustrations are drawn from the unrivaled collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. 195 illus., 33 in color.
