This survey of colour printing by 100 inventive artists begins with works from the 1890s when American artists travelled to Europe to learn traditional printmaking techniques. It then continues through the colour woodcut revival, the development of colour serigraphy and lithography, the evolution of colour intaglio processes, and the free technical experiments of the modernists. The final print, from 1960, is the first lithograph in colour which heralded the explosion of a vital new tradition of printmaking.
