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. Culled from the museum's permanent collection, this exhibition highlights a range of printmaking techniques employed by Leonard Baskin, Bernard Buffet, Ralston Crawford, Worden Day, Leonard Edmonson, Antonio Frasconi, Stanley William Hayter, John Paul Jones, Vera Klement, Mauricio Lasansky, Seong Moy, Gabor Peterdi, Jackson Pollock, Karl Schrag, Hedda Sterne, John Talleur, Rufino Tamayo, Nahum Tschacbasov, and Richard Zellner.
