Printmaking has attracted some of the greatest figures in twentieth-century art, and it is impossible to grasp the full significance of such movements as Expressionism, Surrealism or Pop Art without a knowledge of their printmaking achievements. Moreover, prints remain almost the only medium in which major works of art can be collected for a relatively modest sum. A fully revised and expanded edition, this book discusses the full range of printmaking techniques and the major artists of the medium--from Bonnard and Munch through Picasso to Hockney, Stella and today's avant-garde. The illustrations are drawn from the unrivaled collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. 195 illus., 33 in color.
