Synopsis: Today, not only do the best artists of our time frequently make prints, some of the most highly regarded artworks are prints. More editions are being produced by more artists in greater diversity than at any point in history. This book provides for the first time an authoritative critical survey of printed art over the last four decades - an indispensable reference for students, scholars, art professionals, artists, collectors and would-be collectors, examining and illustrating the work of more than 170 artists from 11 countries.
Starting from the foundation of Universal Limited Art Editions in 1957, The Contemporary Print explores thoroughly the differing traditions of postwar Europe and America: the brilliant experiments of Johns and Rauschenberg; the Pop explosion; the Multiple; Op art, Minimalism and Serialism; Conceptual artists exploiting the language of photography; the rejection of mechanical slickness in the 1970s; the revival of Expressionism and figuration in the 1980s; and the new energies with which the print continues to influence and intrigue us today, expanding the ways in which we think about art.
With a fully detailed catalogue, workshop histories, biographies of all the most prominent artists, and a glossary of print terms, this is a unique and invaluable guide - one of the few essential books for anyone concerned with contemporary art.
From Publishers Weekly:
Concentrating on North America and Europe, Tallman, who has written extensively on contemporary art, surveys the history of printmaking from the revival that began in the late 1950s with the establishing of professional collaborative lithographic print shops to current experimental trends that include photography and digital technologies. Her readable text focuses on the works of more than 170 artists and covers the major movements of four decades, including pop, multiples, op, minimalism and photo-realism. The 334 illustrations (161 in color) are aptly chosen, although some of the b&w reproductions do not adequately show all the fine points of works that depend on nuance for effect. Overall, however, this is a masterful treatment of a complex subject, providing a wealth of information about artists, techniques and the relevance of printmaking to late-20th-century culture. Artists' biographies, a history of workshops and publishers, a bibliography and a glossary of terms used in printmaking are included.
