Publisher Description

Tatyana Grosman (1904-1982) founded Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) in 1957 and immediately began to make lithographs with some of the most important artists of the 1960s, such as Larry Rivers, Sam Francis, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg—sparking a revival of printmaking in America. A Scrapbook tells Grosman's extraordinary story through a collection of over 500 images, historical documents and interviews. 


Born in the Siberian boomtown of Ekaterinburg, Grosman and her family fled the Bolsheviks and settled in Germany. There she married a poor Jewish painter with whom she later left Bohemian Paris to escape the Nazis, crossing the Pyrenees on foot. Eventually, Grosman landed in New York, where she became, for many years, the doyenne of ULAE. Her mission was nothing less than to expand the international reputation of American art. This compelling and beautifully designed volume is compiled by noted historian and Chief Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Riva Castleman.

    Excellent!

    This is an intimate view of the inspiring, creative and artistic life of Taytana Grosman. It's also a great use of digital media - worth it!

    I love this book.

    It's a compelling life story of art and survival. And the scrapbook format made it fun to read. I could tap every item to enlarge it.

    Couldn't sleep one night and read the entire book. It's captivating and wonderfully interactive as an ebook. I knew ULAE and Tatyana's history but not in this detail. Content is fascinating, detail informative and esthetically it is beautiful. Anyone who owns a ULAE print should buy it so as better to understand the wonderful history behind the studio and, hence, their prints.
