A critical survey of printed art over the last four decades examining the art of 170 artists from 11 countries. Starting from the foundation of the first pioneering workshop in 1957, this book explores the differing traditions of postwar Europe and America: the experiments of Johns and Rauschenberg; the Pop explosion; the Multiple; Op art; Minimalism and Serialism; Conceptual artists exploiting the language of photography; the revival of Expressionism and figuration in the 1980s; and the energies with which the print continues. A catalogue with collectors' notes is included, as well as workshop histories, biographies of the most prominent artists and a glossary of print terms.

Concentrating on North America and Europe, Tallman, who has written extensively on contemporary art, surveys the history of printmaking from the revival that began in the late 1950s with the establishing of professional collaborative lithographic print shops to current experimental trends that include photography and digital technologies. Her readable text focuses on the works of more than 170 artists and covers the major movements of four decades, including pop, multiples, op, minimalism and photo-realism. The 334 illustrations (161 in color) are aptly chosen, although some of the b&w reproductions do not adequately show all the fine points of works that depend on nuance for effect. Overall, however, this is a masterful treatment of a complex subject, providing a wealth of information about artists, techniques and the relevance of printmaking to late-20th-century culture. Artists' biographies, a history of workshops and publishers, a bibliography and a glossary of terms used in printmaking are included.

Tallman's review of the modern print carries the examination to postmodern times and analyzes the changing traditions of European and American printmaker's processes. From technological influences on changing styles to individual contributions, this provides a catalog which balances history and artistic analysis with fine black and white and full page color print reproductions from a variety of works. -- Midwest Book Review
