The exhibition catalog About Prints: The Legacy of Stanley William Hayter and Atelier 17 explores Hayter's ideas about contemporary printmaking and the artists who created these works. Using Hayter's own checklist of important prints the exhibition looks at why these images are innovative or essential to understanding how the graphic arts were being transformed throughout the 20th century. Works by recognizable artists such as Picasso, Marc Chagall, and Henry Moore are examined along with other important visionaries such as Andre Masson, Max Ernst and Joan Miro. Technical innovators like Karl Schrag, Arthur Deshaies, and Krishna Reddy are also represented in the exhibition along with Helen Phillips, Mauricio Lasansky and S. W. Hayter.
