schema:reviewBody""This first half of the 20th century was an extraordinarily vibrant moment in the history of American printmaking. Overall the era marked great changes in the visual arts, and prints recorded concurrent shifts in social and cultural behavior." "Pressed in Time: American Prints 1905-1950 explores this vital period by presenting rarely seen material from the Huntington Art Collections and from the private collections of Hannah S. Kully and Gary, Brenda, and Harrison Ruttenberg. The publication includes an introduction by Jessica Todd Smith discussing the history of American prints at the Huntington; short essays by Kevin M. Murphy focusing on specific images and themes; 54 plates; and 5 illustrations. The 82 artists represented in the checklist produced works that are as visually striking and technically superb as they are deeply imbued with political and social engagement." "This book was published in conjunction with the exhibition Pressed in Time: American Prints 1905-1950 at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, October 6, 2007 through January 7, 2008"--Jacket."
