From the Catalogue:
Tiber Press, founded in New York City in 1953 by Floriano Vecchi and Richard Miller, specialized in fine art screen printing. The press produced impeccably crafted screenprints by leading abstract expressionist artists, including Joan Mitchell, Grace Hartigan, Alfred Leslie, and Michael Goldberg. Other artists including Charles Sheeler, Stuart Davis, and Ben Shahn, also worked with master printer Vecchi to create complex and sophisticated images.
