The National Gallery of Art’s Crown Point Press archive consists mainly of “okay to print” (bon à tirer) proofs, which represent the artist’s final resolution. They are used as a guide by printers and are essentially the same as edition prints; we thus make no distinction between “okay to print” proofs and edition prints.
Dimensions of works of art throughout this feature are given in inches, followed by centimeters in parentheses. Height precedes width. All works are on standard wove or laid papers unless otherwise noted. Prints with plate marks are measured by plate size followed by sheet size. Drawings and those prints without visible plate marks are measured by sheet size.
