Andrew Stevens, Curator of the Collection of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at the Chazen Museum at the University of Wisconsin, has published on a variety of subjects from the prints of 18th century printmaker, William Hogarth, to the color woodcut in Japan, Europe and America. He provides unique insights from more than 25 years experience of caring for a collection of 14,000 works on paper and organizing more than 80 exhibitions. Stevens’ most recent publications trace the development of monotype and related processes used by American artists from the late 19th century into the late 20th century. In 2015, Stevens curated the exhibition American Monotypes from the Baker/Pisano Collection, which examined the popularity of the monotype in America and how techniques developed in America over the past two centuries, placing the medium into historical context.
