The Gallery of Contemporary Art at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs is pleased to present Graphics by 20th Century Masters from the Cochran Collection. The traveling show consists of 61 works collected by Wes and Missy Cochran of LaGrange, Georgia. Over the past three decades the Cochrans have amassed some of the finest examples of 20th century European and American printmaking. This collection is a comprehensive cross section of contemporary artists and printmaking techniques. Here among works by Picasso, Chagall, Dali, and others is an etching by sculptor Henry Moore, a mixed media work by sculptor Louise Nevelson and a lithograph by mobile artist Alexander Calder. These are some of the artists who may not be widely known for their prints or associated with the art of printmaking. Among the women artists in this collection are Isabel Bishop, G.H. Rothe, and Joan Mitchell. A silk-screen by Jacob Lawrence is a curious and unusual representation among works by other African American artists.
