Portfolio: Postwar Printmaking in the U.S., 1945-1955 [Exhibition]

Still reeling from the horrors of World War II, artists in the United States felt compelled to find new meaning in their art and, in doing so, sought different artistic techniques and methods. A number of painters and sculptors began experimenting with printmaking, often attending printing studios, such as Stanley William Hayter’s Atelier 17 in New York City. Curator: Katie Koca Polite, Fall 2017.
