Obl 03 262x300 B/W: Twentieth century Russian and European Graphic Works

B/W: Twentieth-century Russian and European Graphic Works was originally conceived as a catalogue for the exhibition of the same name. However, as work on the project progressed, it became clear that it would not fit within the framework of an ordinary exhibition catalogue. For many people graphic works are still terra incognita, and something akin to a reference or textbook on the subject was needed.

The result is this book on the origin and development of different graphic media and techniques. The book is divided into sections on easel and printed graphic works. More than 600 works by 250 twentieth-century Russian and European artists demonstrate the technical potential of various media and show how they were used in different stylistic trends, from avant-garde art to hyperrealism.
