Children at Play
Prendergast’s printmaking was limited to monotypes. Produced between 1891 and 1902, these prints are very similar in style and subject to his oils and watercolors of the same time, though often executed with less detail. The monotype process is, in fact, very much like a painting on paper: a single impression is made from an image drawn or painted on an unworked printing plate.
