Richard Diebenkorn: The Catalogue Raisonné of Prints
Edited by Andrea Liguori

This two-volume catalogue raisonné of Diebenkorn’s prints will be the first comprehensive examination of the artist’s printmaking output spanning 1946 to 1992. The first volume will feature essays by Karin Breuer, Curator in Charge of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and Starr Figura, Curator in the Department of Drawings and Prints at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; first-hand recollections from several printers who spoke with Breuer about their observations and experiences in the studio with Diebenkorn; an illustrated chronology of Diebenkorn’s printmaking years; and a selected print exhibition history and bibliography.

The second volume will contain the complete output of prints by Diebenkorn: early lithographs, color woodcuts, and etchings from his student years, residencies at Tamarind Lithography Workshop, drawing sessions at Crown Point Press, and small print workshops from the 1940s through the 1960s; drypoints, color etchings, and woodcuts published by Crown Point Press from the 1970s into the early 1990s; monotypes made in the workshops of Sam Francis, Nathan Oliveira, and Garner Tullis in the 1970s and ‘80s; and editions published by Gemini G.E.L. in the 1980s and ‘90s. The volume will illustrate several working proofs and all known unpublished prints by Diebenkorn.
