Following World War II, master printer Kenneth Tyler was at the forefront of printmaking innovation in America, orchestrating the move from printmaking as a minor artform to a leading visual practice. Through his workshops, Tyler empowered major post-war artists – Josef and Anni Albers, Helen Frankenthaler, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, Donald Sultan and Andy Warhol – to create print works on a grand scale, using ground-breaking techniques.
The National Gallery of Australia is open every day including Easter, 10am – 5pm, (closed Christmas Day only).
