Description

Garo Antreasian's exploration of the printmaking medium began in Stanley William Hayter's Atlier 17 in the late 1940s, and steadily overcame his original pursuit of painting. By the 1970s, Antreasian's unparalleled command of the lithographic process was plainly illustrated by his tonal, refined geometric compositions, as seen here in this untitled piece, done at Collector's Press in San Francisco in 1970, printed with the assistance of Maurice Sanchez.

Antreasian's work as an artist and a teacher furthered the goal of his fine art printmaker forerunners: to advance the evolution of a medium once banned to the confines of commercial reproduction, and to help it thrive. Antresian and Clinton Adams helped June Wayne with the formation of the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in 1960.
