    This catalogue presents an overview of American printmaking in the first half of the twentieth century.

    About 140 powerful prints by approximately 75 artists are featured, beginning in 1905 with John Sloan's etchings of everyday urban experience, dubbed the Ashcan School, and concluding with Jackson Pollock and abstract expressionist prints.

    A substantial introduction sets the prints in context, showing how this dynamic tradition arose and how it relates to other media such as magazine illustration, photography, cinema and poster design.

    Biographies of all the artists are included.
