Brooke Alexander began publishing prints and multiples in the fall of 1968. The range of artists that he initially chose - from painterly realists such as Jack Beal and Fairfield Porter to hardedge abstractions such as Joseph Albers - was an early clue to the versatility and scope that have characterized his productive career. Consistently working with both established and emerging artists, he has published over 1,500 editions with more than 75 painters and sculptors. Surveying his publications thus offers a particularly dynamic view of American printmaking of the last quarter century.
