Description What Is a Print? (2011), by Sarah Suzuki, Associate Curator in the Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, is a publication that grew out of The Museum of Modern Art’s interactive website of the same name. Elaborating on the site’s tutorials on the practical and technical aspects of basic printing techniques, the book also presents the history and cultural context of printmaking and is illustrated with ample examples from MoMA’s rich print collection. Specially commissioned works by four contemporary artists—Christiane Baumgartner, Julian Opie, José Antonio Suárez Londoño, and Terry Winters—play a crucial role in demonstrating the traditional printmaking techniques of woodcut, intaglio, lithography, and screenprint, and provide a connection between historical masterpieces and contemporary prints.
