Rudy Pozzatti : A Printmaker's Odyssey
Over the last half-century, Rudy Pozzatti has earned international acclaim as an artist, educator, professor of printmaking at Indiana University, and co-founder of Echo Press, a fine arts printmaking workshop. The 95 illustrations in this book (including 47 full-color plates) capture Pozzatti's bountiful creativity in etchings, engravings, lithographs, and collages produced over the course of his career. An essay by Norman A. Geske defines Pozzatti's place in the renaissance in American printmaking that was sparked by Mauricio Lazansky and his students at the University of Iowa in the 1940s and 1950s. Pozzatti's personal insights and anecdotes about many of the prints enliven the extensive catalogue entries, which, along with an inclusive bibliography and a compendium of the artist's exhibitions and chronology, make this book an indispensable resource on the artist and his work.
