It is with great pleasure that we are able to present this series of prints produced since 1960. Few recent contemporary print exhibitions have been devoted exclusively to black and white prints, but in collecting black and white prints, one becomes a part of the history of print collecting. Moreover, for many print-lovers, color prints may not be a satisfactory substitute for paintings. The very same experts who concede that color prints sell better, and for higher prices, often think that black and white prints are the better prints.
