Prints, Illustrators and Social Commentary: A Sale of Donated Prints
With the invention of print media, artists began using ink on paper to create single prints and portfolios of prints to address aesthetic, political, cultural and technological issues. For illustrators, prints and portfolios occupy the middle ground between one-of-a-kind originals and marketplace reproduction. They offer the opportunity to collaborate with small publishers and print makers to create subjects in a single or series of images that relate without having to be a narrative.
Something unusual for the collector’s acquisition.
