In this catalog of nearly 300 prints by the well-known American painter Carroll Dunham, the authors-Kemmerer (curator of photography, Addison Gallery of American Art), independent scholar Elizabeth C. DeRose, and Dunham himself-showcase and document the artist's graphic works. Widely known for his variety of influences, including abstraction, figuration, pop art, and cartoon art, Dunham admits printmaking has served as a "laboratory of sorts relative" to his other works, permitting him to experiment with different techniques, diverse media, and disparate imageries. The book is divided into three parts-prints featured in an exhibition at the Addison Gallery (copublisher of this volume), texts analyzing the works, and a catalogue raisonné of the artist's complete print archive. Some of the 431 full-page color reproductions have never before been published. A glossary, a concordance to the catalog and Addison accession numbers, and an index of illustration titles further feature Dunham's entire print archive. Professionally presented, expertly conceived, and comprehensively documented, this book, which explores for the first time the significance of printmaking to Dunham's oeuvre, belongs in academic research, large public, and special libraries. Strongly recommended.
