Second Sight

Printmaking in Chicago 1935-1995
James Yood
This informative book discusses the originality of the print as an art form, and questions the seminal role of the print in order to understand the movements and discourse on the arts in the past decades. In illuminating essays, three Chicago art scholars assess the open, cooperative style that makes Chicago printmaking unique, and consider the history of printmaking in Chicago in the context of the WPA, as well as the WPA's facilitation of interest in, and production of prints, and in its setting the stage for the evolution of contemporary print workshops.
Includes 207 color and b/w illustrations.
