Press Gallery: The Newspaper in Modern and Postmodern Art celebrates the 400th anniversary of newspapers and the vibrancy of newspapers in the 21 century. Richly illustrated with more than 140 full-color reproductions, Press Gallery underscores the vitality of newspapers in the 21st century while providing a general introduction to the art of our times. Published to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the birth of newspapers, Press Gallery presents the works of more than 100 outstanding artists and artisans, including Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Juan Gris, Salvador Dali, Max Beckmann, Reginald Marsh, Man Ray, Jean Arp, Jacob Lawrence, Ellsworth Kelly, and Gerhard Richter. Press Gallery also features many works in which newspapers provide the raw material for artists. You will find newspapers used as "canvas," mixed media sculptures and installations -- even as trendy, wearable arts and crafts, such as earrings and purses. Matching the standards of America's best art book publishers, master craftsmen used state-of-the-art color reproduction techniques throughout Press Gallery to produce high-fidelity, color reproductions of paintings, collages, sculptures, installations and photographs from public and private collections. Measuring slightly more than 9 x 12 inches and hard-bound with a gold foil-stamped cloth cover and full-color dust jacket, this superbly crafted, 213-page volume will be treasured by all who love newspapers . . . and art!
