A key innovator in American art of the mid-twentieth century, Garo Antreasian revolutionized the medium of lithography. Art historian Bill Peterson remarks, “In the 1960s and 70s, [Antreasian] did as much as anyone to regenerate and revolutionize the art of lithography in this country, expanding its technical range, training a new generation of master printers, and building an impressive body of brilliant and masterful prints that stand as a benchmark of achievement in the medium.”
Antreasian died in 2018 at the age of 96 with over fifty years of exhibition history. His paintings, drawings and master prints are housed in over 60 museum collections including The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the New Mexico Museum of Art. Antreasian was a founding member of Tamarind, where he served as the first Technical Director and Master Printer. He also was a dedicated and beloved Professor at the University of New Mexico for more than two decades.
