Wendingen, Journal of Architecture & Art

Covers, 1921-25

Wendingen (“Upheaval,” in Dutch) was a monthly journal that ran from 1918-1932. Its covers bear witness to the transition from Art Nouveau to de Stijl. Published in Amsterdam, the journal shows the profound influence of Frank Lloyd Wright: seven entire issues are devoted to Wright, including the striking black-and-red cover designed by the journal’s editor, Hendrik Wijdeveld.

  • H. Th. Wijdeveld, 1925
  • El Lissitzky, 1921
  • B. Bijvoet and J. Duiker, 1921
  • Johan Polet, 1923

Mayumi Oda.

Mayumi Oda’s prints are a wonderful commingling of Japanese Ukiyo-e, Art Nouveau and Buddhist iconography, her voluptuous women whimsical but never ridiculous, each print accentuating the power of women and the concept of the mother Goddess.

ALEXANDER BRODSKY
Palace of everyone’s prosperity
32 x21, Screenprint, flocked with ground espresso on Arches 88 (edition of 42)

(from the archives)
This is my favorite print from my collection and one of my favorite experiences as a master printer for HPWI.

One of the benefits of being a master printer (other that the obvious— working with amazing artists) is that you get to keep one print from every edition you produce.

This one hangs next to my bed.

Color lithograph

Color lithographs are usually made with one stone for each color.  This poses a challenge for artists who have to envision a complex blending of tones, and for printers who then have to register or align the sheet perfectly on each stone.  Thomas Shotter Boys and his printer, Charles Hullmandel, perfected the process, using four or five stones, which carefully superimposed and juxtaposed colors to create a full chromatic range and the delicacy of a watercolor.  Their work established a completely new standard for color printing.
