Printmaking was an integral part of Jacob Kainen’s creative process. Early print works of the 1930s often recreated particular street scenes that had absorbed his attention as painting subjects. As an early proponent of abstract expressionism, his prints expanded beyond specific subject matter to variants of the themes and motifs in his paintings. By the early 1970s, Kainen’s print practice became a dynamic aesthetic exploration, continuing through the 1990s.
Join us on Saturday, October 28th on the final day of the exhibition Jacob Kainen for a first-hand look at selections of prints spanning Kainen’s career. Prints from the 1940s to the 1990s will be presented in the gallery space in the midst of the exhibition. Enjoy the exuberance of Kainen’s etchings, lithographs, woodcuts, and silkscreens.
