"American artists transformed printmaking from an artistic sideline or technical exercise into a dramatic expression, making it the twentieth century's most innovative art. 'American Prints and Printmakers', the first book on this subject, covers every development, from late nineteenth-century pictorialism through Surrealism, technical experimentation of the 1940s and '50s, to 'Pop Art', 'Op Art', and the Minimal modes of the 1970s. Una E. Johnson draws on her long curatorial career tracing the developments of techniques and ideas and studying over four hundred artists who have made fine American prints for the past three quarters of a century."-- from dust-jacket.
