    September 10 - December 30, 2016


    Pressed for Time: History of Printmaking

    Pressed for Time: The History of Printmaking is a historical survey of the four major processes of printmaking in the Western world. Selected prints highlight the remarkable diversity and ingenuity of this medium. The four methods of relief (woodcut), intaglio (etching, engraving), planographic (lithography), and stencil (screenprinting) will be represented, along with a brief look at the new medium of digital printing. Beginning with a 15th-century woodcut by Michael Wolgemut and continuing through to the 21st-century, with a silkscreen print by Shepard Fairey, Pressed for Time includes works by artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt van Rijn, James Abbot McNeill Whistler, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Winslow Homer, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Henri Matisse, Edward Hopper, Romare Bearden, Jasper Johns, and Andy Warhol.
