Product Description

Eye on Europe: Prints, Books & Multiples/1960 to Now (HC)

By Deborah Wye and Wendy Weitman

This survey explores ways artists across Europe have turned to printed mediums—including traditional etchings, lithographs, and screenprints as well as unusual book formats, editioned sculptural objects, postcards, and even shopping bags and record jackets—in a quest to expand their creative thinking. It presents the work of 118 artists, collectives, and journals from twenty countries organized in thematic sections. From Pop screenprints and fervent political statements to the reemergence of language and expressionist tendencies, these works demonstrate the vitality artists have brought to printed art in the contemporary period. Recent projects display the vibrancy of younger practitioners, with an added focus on the innovative output from Britain. The volume comprises an introduction, six essays, biographies of all the artists and publishers featured, a chronology, and an extensive bibliography. Also included are two artists' projects. Includes 350 color illustrations.
