Drawing on the museum's own collection and loans from New York's Museum of Modern Art and other galleries, the show begins in the 1960s, when artists including Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns began experimenting with printmaking.There are images of American plenty – Richard Diebenkorn's vibrant West Coast aquatints, David Hockney's Los Angeles swimming pool – and American achievement, such as Rauschenberg's prints of the Apollo 11 moon mission.They sit alongside images of American tragedy. The artists on show become more diverse as the decades go on.Many of the works, especially those from the 1960s, are clearly the products of a rich and confident – if troubled – country.The 1960s original glows in vivid orange and red, but in "Ghost Station" all color is gone: The image is entirely white.
