About this product
- DescriptionThis group of 40 prints from the exceptional Daniel Cowin Collection captures the tumultuous aesthetic and political climate of the years surrounding World Wars I and II. An essay by Jonathan Black addresses the impact of World War I on two table British printmakers, Edward Wadsworth and C. R. W. Nevinson. A text by Jay A. Clarke delves into the licut movement of the 1920s and '30s, investigating how the role of style and politics impacted this movement as well as the previously unexplored position of women printmakers and the interplay between gender, craft, and decoration. Influences of Futurism, Cubism, and the short-lived but vibrant abstraction of the Vorticist movement saturate the powerful color images, which are accompanied by artist biographies. This publication illuminates the struggle of these radical printmakers as they navigated a conservative market and the harsh ecomic and political realities of their time.
- Author BiographyJay A. Clarke is the Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Clark Art Institute. Jonathan Black is a senior research fellow in the history of art at Kingston University in London.
