All About Prints invites novices and experienced collectors alike to explore the art of printmaking — from the 15th-century woodcuts of Albrecht Dürer to Paul Revere’s hand-colored engraving of The Boston Massacre to Andy Warhol’s iconic silkscreens of Marilyn Monroe. This new special, produced by Stereopticon Pictures, takes a broad approach to printmaking, from the wider history of prints in Western art to key landmarks of printmaking in the U.S. It airs Friday, August 28, 2015 at 10:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Influential curators from Christie’s New York, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, MOMA, the British Museum in London and the Whitney Museum of American Art, collectors, dealers, printmakers and artists provide a deeper understanding of the centuries-old art form with detailed explanations about printmaking terms and techniques.
