The seven widely known artists in this selection (Jim Dine, David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquest, Frank Stella) are all painters who became involved with printmaking workshops in the 1960s. Each of these artists has had close to thirty years' experience in printmaking during a period of burgeoning printmaking activity and copious publicity about art exhibitions, artists, and auctions. The prosperity of the 1980s allowed an extraordinary collaboration between mature artists and master printers, which resulted in the intensely engaging and supremely assured works presented in this volume. Through them a concentrated view of the influences and transformations in style and content that distinguished this decade of printmaking is possible. Includes 54 color and 15 black-and-white illustrations, including 2 fold-outs.
