The 18th New Works 1998-1999: 7th Exhibition of Prints from Tyler Graphics Archive Collection
March 01, 2000 - June 04, 2000
More than 40 artists have produced prints at the Tyler Graphics print workshop in New York since it was founded in 1974, led by master printer Kenneth Tyler.
Amongst these artists are Frank Stella, Helen Frankenthaler and Roy Lichtenstein, who represent American modern art. The reputation of the print workshop was established both thanks to the talent of these remarkable artists and the craftsmanship and publishing talents of Tyler, who devoted his life to printmaking.
As well as innovative techniques and the use of the latest equipment, Tyler Graphics created a collection of works which expanded the possibilities of printmaking and established its position in the field of modern art.
In this exhibition we have exhibited groups of works from the Tyler Graphics Archive Collection, which belongs to the CCGA such as Helen Frankenthaler's "Tales of Genji" published in 1998, Frank Stella's "Imaginary Places III" published in 1999 which were newly acquired at the time, These exhibits illustrate the works of Tyler Graphics and the art of American printmaking at the end of the 20th century.
