Creative Space: Fifty Years of Robert Blackburn's Printmaking Workshop

features works by the master printmaker and by his collaborators, students, and friends. Blackburn (1920 - 2003) changed the course of American art through his graphic work and the Printmaking Workshop, which he founded in New York City in 1948. His experiments in color lithography helped fuel the explosion of graphic art during the 1960s. (Library of Congress)

Interesting Fact:

Following high school graduation in 1940, Blackburn attended the Art Students League in New York until 1943. By late 1947, he had acquired his own lithographic press. In 1948, he opened his own studio in Chelsea, printing for artists and encouraging his friends to experiment in lithography.
