Description

Oregon born and now Portland resident, printmaker/painter Byron McClintock was an important part of the abstract expressionist movement in San Francisco in the 1950s.

His printmaking was re-discovered in the early 1990's by New York AbEx print collector Charles Dean. Byron began working in printmaking again, this time using color mezzotint, roulette and drypoint. The Whitney Museum purchased a few of his prints and hung them in a "Recent Acquisitions" exhibition. At Dean's urging McClintock traveled from Portland, Oregon to New York in 2004 to see his work hanging at the Whitney, his first trip to New York.

This image, titled "CSFA 1950" refers to his years and work at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco between 1949 and 1952 where he studied painting with young AbEx artists Richard Diebenkorn, Ed Corbett and printmaking with James Budd Dixon.
