the history of digital, fine art printing

by Harald Johnson
While artists have been using computers to create and even output images for decades, things didn't really take off until two groups on opposite sides of the U.S. started to put their attentions on a new way of imagemaking.

In 1980, Jon Cone, who was educated and trained as a traditional fine-art printmaker and who owned an art gallery in New York City's SoHo district, founded an experimental and collaborative printmaking studio in the waterfront town of Port Chester, New York. There, from 1980 to 1984, printmaker Cone worked with artists in the media of silkscreen, intaglio, relief, monoprint, and photogravure.
