“Different times require different images. Today when our aspirations have been reduced to a desperate attempt to escape from evil, and times are out of joint, our obsessive, subterranean and pictographic images are the expression of the neurosis which is our reality. To my mind certain so-called abstraction is not abstraction at all. On the contrary, it is the realism of our time.” 

– Adolph Gottlieb

We saw this fantastic set of dry-point intaglio prints on display in the 2014 China Academy of Art Annual Student Exhibition.  The work, created by an undergraduate student from the printmaking department at China Academy of Arts (CAA), was produced using several zinc plates printed on separate sheets of paper and assembled into a panoramic print.

At The Piano, Ethel Mars
(1876-1959) was a painter and printmaker who exhibited regularly as part of the avant garde art world of Paris in the early 20th Century and with Provincetown artists during WWI.
