Scope and Contents

Internet: Masterpieces, the cliche goes, spring fully formed from the dark imaginations of temperamental geniuses moved by intuition, inspiration, and epiphany. Such revelations can certainly fuel the creative process, but so too can auspicious accidents, false starts, or even failures. In printmaking, these occurrences are typically recorded in preliminary impressions known as working proofs. Printmaking thus affords an exceptional opportunity to examine this complex and contingent aspect of the creative process. Yes, No, Maybe looks at sequences of artistic choices by juxtaposing fully resolved prints and related working proofs produced at the influential studio Crown Point Press between 1972 and 2010. This catalogue also provides background information for the proof copies of Tom Phillips Dante's "Inferno" that are held by the Sackner Archive, -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
