Description

Making sets and series is inherently part of the printmaking process. With the boom in printmaking in the 1960s, many artists explored ways to develop themes and variations within print portfolios. For Joseph Albers, printmaking offered a means to disseminate his precise color experiments. In Madrid Suite (1966), Robert Motherwell worked through ten variations of ovals and lines. For Sol LeWitt, his serial approach to making art led directly to printmaking. Drawn from the collection of the Davison Art Center, this exhibition also will include works by Jasper Johns, Lee Krasner, Robert Mangold, and Brice Marden.
