Description

Long out-of-print, this impressive book is the catalog that accompanied a museum exhibition at the Worcester Art Museum in 1991.  After a brief history of American printmaking and techniques, the book profiles 100 American artists and their works, formatted as a page of text facing a page filled with that artist’s print. Thus the book presents a wide variety of woodblock prints by American artists including Arthur Wesley Dow, Frances Gearhart, May Gearhart, Gustave Baumann, Mary Cassatt, Pedro Lemos, and William Rice, to name just a few. This book is a must-read for serious print collectors.
