Printmaking at the University of Wisconsin, 1945–1995

From the Inside Flap

Printmaking exploded on the American art scene after World War II, rapidly expanding from New York to the Midwest and beyond. Central to this movement and its development was the University of Wisconsin -- Madison, where a group of talented young artists was making prints and developing a print curriculum. Progressive Printmakers documents, in words and stunning pictures, the breakthrough aesthetics and technical innovations that made the Madison printmakers a force in the art world.

In lively memoirs and analyses, the artists tell the story of the evolving print program at Madison. The distinguished print historian, the late James Watrous, provides an introductory overview, placing the program's development in the national context of the American print renaissance. A concluding chapter traces the founding of Tandem Press, an exciting extension of the Wisconsin print curriculum.

As Watrous notes, the university's commitment has been "renewed again and again during a half-century when printmaking flourished in America as never before."

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
"Progressive Printmakers" documents a wonderful chapter in American printmaking history with scholarly but NOT dry text and multitudes of colorful and important prints by a variety of printmakers who taught at Madison. After having worked with the renown Parisian printmaker Stanley Hayter at his New York atelier, "Studio 67", the pioneers of the American Print Renaissance during the post WWII era spread Hayter's "gospel" throughout academia, most notably at the University of Wisconsin and also surrounding Midwestern universities and art schools.
