Description:

Ink-Stained Hands fulfils a considerable gap in Irish visual arts publications as the first book to present the activities of printmakers in Ireland from the end of the nineteenth century to the present. The central narrative of this profusely illustrated and documented book is the foundation of Graphic Studio Dublin in 1960, an event which revolutionized the graphic arts in Ireland and made the European tradition of printmaking available to Irish artists.
 

Many leading names in Irish printmaking worked at Graphic Studio including Patrick Hickey, Nora McGuinness, Gerard Dillon, John Kelly, Mary Farl Powers, Louis Le Brocquy and Tony Oï¾'Malley. The story of Graphic Studio Dublin (which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2010) is a mirror of half a century of development of the arts in Ireland, a journey from artists working in wretched conditions with no market for their work, to an era in which public acceptance has been achieved and paralleled in improved gallery and studio conditions.

The Special Edition is limited to 50 copies, signed and cased. It contains an original print by Brian Lalor and a fascicle with the poem Incantata by Paul Muldoon.

BRIAN LALOR, Artist and writer was General Editor of The Encyclopaedia of Ireland (2003). He has lectured for many years on the history of printmaking and has published numerous books, including The Irish Round Tower and Dublin: Ninety Drawings.
