Jasper Johns: Printed Symbols.

JASPER JOHNS: PRINTED SYMBOLS. Minneapolis, MN: Walker Arts Center, 1990. Illustrated, 96 pp., softbound. $21.95.

This is a well-illustrated catalogue of Johns' comprehensive explorations into printmaking processes. In 1960, when his reputation as an important artist was just beginning to form, Johns was invited to make prints at the Universal Limited Art Editions workshop of Tatyana Grosman, where he became intrigued with lithography. This catalogue examines his work in all printmaking processes through well written essays and an insightful interview with Johns.

The exhibition upon which this catalog is based may be viewed at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco through November 18, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, December 14-March 10, and the Saint Louis Art Museum, April 7-May 27, 1991.
