The Art of Print
Prints have played a unique and important role in the history of art and image. Often thought of as ‘reproductions’, they are in fact finished artworks, often the result of highly considered creative experimentation. This engaging book, published by Tate, explores the ways artists have embraced printmaking over three centuries, with a wide range of techniques and purposes explained in clear and concise terms. The featured artworks are among the highlights of Tate’s extensive but little-known print collection, and include work by Hogarth, Stubbs, Blake, Picasso, Barbara Hepworth, Bridget Riley, Paula Rego, William Kentridge and Kara Walker.
