Color printmaking first became popular in the United States following the establishment of the Graphic Arts Division of the Federal Art Project (FAP), a branch of the Work Progress Administration that provided jobs to artists during the Depression. In search of a new means of producing art for a mass audience, FAP artists embraced commercial techniques like screenprinting and color lithography while reviving traditional mediums such as the color woodcut. Explore some of these works in “Breaking Ground: Printmaking in the US, 1940–1960.” “Along the Harlem River,” c. 1938, by Hyman Warsager
