Class Description

ONLINE CLASS The history of printmaking is in many ways a dive into the human quest for immortality. It is through print that our individual and collective thoughts have survived, been amplified, and have continued to influence generation after generation. Each of the printmaking processes are rich with traditions, innovations, and lore. Over six weeks we will look into how the processes of relief, intaglio, lithography, screenprint, and monotype evolved from their commercial origins into unique art forms. The final class will look at the roles of the artist, printer, and publisher that every print requires to make it into the world. The stories of the lives and work of these influential individuals throughout the history of printmaking will be connected to masters of the craft working today, carrying the tradition forward. Much of the content for this course is an expansion of the recent Princeton Architectural Press publication, Prints and Their Makers, by author and instructor Phil Sanders. Masters of their medium that will be covered include: Robert Blackburn, Chakaia Booker, Cecily Brown Elizabeth Catlett, Edgar Degas, Albrecht Dürer, Edgar Heap of Birds, Francisco de Goya, Hokusai, Jasper Johns, Sister Corita Kent, William Kentridge, Julie Mehretu, Pablo Picasso, Martin Puryear, Robert Rauschenberg, Rembrandt van Rijn, Alois Senefelder, Masami Teraoka, Hank Willis Thomas, Zarina, and many more.
