Peter Milton is one of the foremost printmakers working in the United States today.  Since the 1960s, his artistic output has increased and evolved, as have the phenomenal imagery and complex techniques he employs. Michael Farrell presents a biographical sketch that helps to explain the visual aspects and meanings of some of Milton’s prints, which include inspiration from the writings of Henry James and images borrowed from important 20th-century photographers.

In his inspiring and entertaining presentations, the difference becomes apparent.
