Organized by the Syracuse University Art Collection
From the 1930s to the 1980s, the printed image in American art went through profound changes. Beginning with the black and white lithographs that were popularized by the Regionalists and urban Realists, and continuing through the experimental intaglio prints of the 1940s and 1950s, the Pop explosion of screen prints in the 1960s, and the precision of Photorealism in the 1970s, printmaking has captured the imagination of countless American artists.
This exhibition of 50 prints surveys the activities of artists who created works on paper during this exciting period. Milton Avery, Dorothy Dehner, Richard Estes, Helen Frankenthaler, Alex Katz, Ann Ryan, and Andy Warhol are just a few of the artists represented in this exhibition.
