More than works in any other medium, prints enable a viewer to explore the creative process leading to a finished work of art. Successive
stages of a print--working proofs, states, and pen-and-ink studies--permit us to follow the artist's thoughts and to scrutinize his working
methods. The work of Richard Hamilton (born 1922), structured on the additive principle of collage, is particularly suited to such penetrating
analysis, as demonstrated by this exhibition of eighteen images seen in various states of their development.
