About this title


This magnificent volume is the first comprehensive study of the influence of Abstract Expressionism on printmaking.

From Library Journal:

This impressive compendium features the prints, rather than the paintings, of 100 abstract expressionist artists, including such giants as Jackson Pollack and Mark Rothko as well as such lesser-known figures as Seong Moy and Hugo Weber. Each artist is represented by a full-page reproduction of one print and a one-page biographical and critical sketch by Acton, the curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Worcester Art Museum. Almost all of the prints come from the collection of the Worcester, where the accompanying exhibition originated. Introductory essays by musician David Amram and poet David Lehman relate the abstract expressionist movement to its historical and artistic context, with emphasis on the relationships between writers and artists in New York City in the Forties and Fifties. In addition to the visual treats it offers, this catalog is a valuable addition to the literature on the breadth and depth of abstract expressionist printmaking. Recommended for academic, larger public, and specialized art libraries. Kathryn Wekselman, MLn, Cincinnati
