Milton Glaser Landscape Prints
The exhibition will feature fifty three landscape explorations influenced by Edgar Degas monotypes.  For these works, Glaser begins with a drawing from both memory and observation. He then  uses a range of digital processes to layer a variety of patterns on the original image, creating a virtual lithographic press. His process enables him to differentiate the slightest changes in color, resulting in a series of unique works based on the natural beauty of the Hudson Valley and yet sparking the imagination. or 917 520 3234.
