The Carved Line, by author Josie Lopez, is about printmaking and printmakers in New Mexico over a significant period of time from 1890 to present. It features block prints, including new works, by New Mexico’s best known printmakers and brings to the forefront little-known artists deserving wide recognition and a place in New Mexico’s art historical canon. This volume includes 120 beautifully reproduced prints by internationally known New Mexico artists including Gustave Baumann, Willard Clark, Howard Cook, Betty Hahn, T.C. Cannon, Fritz Scholder, Frederick O’Hara, Adja Yunkers, and previously unpublished works by other artists such as Tesuque Pueblo artist Juan Pino, Margaret Herrera Chavez, Tina Fuentes, Yoshiko Shimano, and Ruth Connely. The extraordinary range of block prints in this book shows the types of production, sociopolitical and cultural influences, and wide variety of subjects in New Mexico.
