Artists and Prints by Deborah Wye

Book Description

This volume examines the many ways in which a wide variety of artists from the late 19th century to 2003 have made use of printmaking. Including over 200 illustrations, it is organized as an unfolding historical narrative with a focus on individual artists, each with a succinct text describing his or her relationship to printmaking. All the works reproduced are from the Museum of Modern Art's collection of prints. From explorations of the symbolic potential of woodcut by Paul Gauguin and Edvard Munch, to depictions of Parisian cabaret dancers in lithographed posters by Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, the book presents the early period of modern as a rich chapter in the history of the print medium. Developments unfold through the work of the German Expressionists, of Picasso and Miro, of Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol, up to the current generation of artists including Terry Winters and Kiki Smith.

Picasso Portfolio by Deborah Wye Picasso Portfolio, Hardback (March 2010)

Printmaking was fundamental to Pablo Picasso's artistic vision. Over his career, he made well over 2,000 printed images, focusing on the intaglio techniques of etching, engraving, drypoint and aquatint, lithography and linoleum cut. This book explores Picasso's creative process in printmaking from the early years of the 20th century onwards.

Kirchner and the Berlin Street by Deborah Wye Kirchner and the Berlin Street, Hardback (August 2008)

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's remarkable series of paintings known as the "Berlin Street Scenes" is a highpoint of the artist's work and a milestone of German Expressionism, widely seen as a metaphor for modernity itself through their depiction of life in a major metropolis. This volume examines the creative process undertaken by the artist.
