Bridget Riley has made screenprints throughout her career, extending the principles of her paintings into a new, reproducible medium. Bringing together the complete, updated inventory of this substantial body of work, this volume explores Riley's development as a printmaker and her relationship to the screenprint medium.
Newly revised, updated and designed, this catalogue raisonné richly illustrates Bridget Riley's graphic work in a larger, enhanced format. Alongside a full-colour inventory of the prints are updated essays by Lynn MacRitchie and Craig Hartley and an additional essay by Robert Kudielka, which provide a greater context for Riley's work. This revised volume, a co-publication with The Bridget Riley Art Foundation, also benefits from supplemental material including an artist biography and selected solo and group exhibition history.
