Crown Point Press

Crown Point Press began in 1962 with two portfolios of etchings by Richard Diebenkorn and Wayne Thiebaud. Since then, the publisher has expanded its roster to both US-based and international artists with a focus on conceptual art while still maintaining the workshop’s emphasis on etchings and woodcuts. Notable alumni including Chuck Close, April Gornick, Vito Acconci, and Helen Frankenthaler have worked in collaboration with the studio to push the boundaries of intaglio processes and expand Crown Point’s expertise to all areas of printmaking.

Established in the late 1960s by Robert Feldman, Parasol Press has been instrumental in introducing a generation of minimalist and conceptual artists to printmaking. The publisher’s roster includes influential artists such as Robert Mangold, Josef Albers, and Richard Estes. Parasol continues to be an important producer of contemporary editions to this day.

Sol LeWitt 1928–2007

Solomon ‘Sol’ LeWitt had a major impact on the Conceptual Art movement through his distinctive approach to creating artwork intuitively. Born in Connecticut in 1928, LeWitt went on to receive his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University in 1949. In 1951, he was drafted for the Korean War where his duties included creating posters for the Special Services Division. Following his release, he moved to New York where he studied at, what is now, the School of Visual Arts while interning as a graphic designer for several magazines including Seventeen. He was employed by the architectural office of I.M Pei in 1955, and in 1960 he worked as a receptionist at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
