Green by Richard Diebenkorn: The Story of a Print

February 9 - March 31, 2017

Richard Diebenkorn

Crown Point Press presents Green by Richard Diebenkorn: The Story of a Print, an exhibition dedicated to the process behind the artist’s seminal print, the large aquatint titled Green. On view February 9 to March 31, it features working proofs from the Green project made at Crown Point in 1985 and 1986. Printmaking, unlike painting, preserves through the proofing process the early states of the art’s creation. Exhibited are a related set of four proofs: one from the drypoint plate first made, one from the green aquatint plate, and two that are sequential and resemble the edition prints, but have a few crucial differences. The selection of proofs reveals Diebenkorn’s exploration of form, color, and technique.
