Jasper Johns & John Lund
Masters in the Print Studio
An extraordinary, little-known story unfolds in the exhibition Jasper Johns & John Lund: Masters in the Print Studio. Over the past 30 years, Johns and Lund have forged a rare artistic collaboration: side-by-side, master printer Lund assists one of America’s foremost living artists to achieve precisely the effects he seeks in his prints, 47 of which are featured in the exhibition.
More about this exhibition
Johns and Lund began working together in 1973 at Universal Limited Art Editions on Long Island. A decade later, Lund became integral to John’s printmaking process as the exclusive master printer to work on the artist’s intaglio prints. In 1996, Lund established a private print studio on John’s rural Connecticut property and became his on-site master printer. Together, they have created more than 70 editions, the majority of which use etching and aquatint.
Organized by the Katonah Museum of Art, Katonah, New York, Jasper Johns and John Lund is the first museum exhibition to examine these two master’s working relationship. It explores process with never-before exhibited proofs and plates. Lund’s personal photographs of Johns working in the studio are also on display.Next Previous
