artists & participants
An exhibition of approximately 70 works selected from the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art reveals how more than 50 artists have used four techniques—woodcut, etching, lithography, and screenprint— to create an extraordinary range of artworks. From Toulouse-Lautrec's lithographed posters, through German Expressionist woodcuts, to Andy Warhol's screen-printed soup cans, stylistic achievements have often been closely tied to an involvement with a particular printmaking process.
Prints by a breadth of artists including Helen Frankenthaler, Paul Gauguin, Käthe Kollwitz, Joan Miró, Edvard Munch, Elizabeth Murray, Pablo Picasso, and Robert Rauschenberg, among others, show how specific techniques provide a variety of new expressive possibilities. Some of the tools and equipment used by artists are also displayed to help visitors understand how the printmaking processes are accomplished.
From Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec to Andy Warhol: Exploring Techniques is organized by Robin Reisenfeld, Associate Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, The Museum of Modern Art.
