Crown Point Press information
Bet you didn't think anyone could capture Chuck Close's giant portraits, Robert Bechtle's hyperrealistic street scenes or Chris Ofili's glitter-and-elephant-dung paintings on paper – yet here they are. Crown Point Press printmakers work with international artists to turn singular visions into large-scale, limited edition woodblocks and etchings.
