Willard Clark: Printer & Printmaker

As with many young artists of the Santa Fe art colony, Willard Clark, the recognised American printmaker, was on his way to somewhere else when he landed in Santa Fe in 1928. He ended up spending a lifetime there creating a unique body of wood engravings. Carving his own wood blocks as illustrations for commercial job printing, Clark's illustration and original typographic design came to define the look of Santa Fe as a destination for travellers in the 1930s and '40s seeking south-western experiences and colourful locales.
