Jasper Johns: From Plate to Print

Elizabeth C. DeRose

2007 Third Place, Exhibition Catalogues, New England Museum Association Publication Awards Competition

Printmaking has been integral to the work of preeminent American painter Jasper Johns (born 1930) throughout his career. Jasper Johns: From Plate to Print focuses on Johns’s intaglio print Untitled (1999) and features the entire archive for this project: the state proofs, working proofs, trial proofs, elements, and progressives leading up to the final print, as well as the five copper plates used in its creation. This fully illustrated catalogue offers a unique opportunity to explore both the artistic and technical aspects of printmaking and provides a glimpse into Johns’s creative process—his development of motifs, color choices, and graphic transformations.
