Published on the occasion of the exhibition Richard Tuttle: A Print Retrospective, at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art from June 28 through October 19, 2014
Since the 1970s, in collaboration with renowned printers and publishers, Richard Tuttle has created a diverse printed oeuvre. In sensitively exploiting the unique possibilities of printmaking to make process, materials and actions visible, Tuttle explores the complexity of printmaking processes. "Prints" is the first monograph on Tuttle's printmaking. This publication introduces not only the artist's unique approach to printmaking with profound scholarly essays and catalogue entries for selected prints between 1973 and 2013, but also reveals Tuttle's deep interest in the collaborative nature of printmaking.
