After prints were created under the auspices of artists’ publishers. Georges Braque worked with Parisian publisher Maeght to create graphics made “after” his watercolors and paintings. The printers whom he regularly worked with on his “original” graphics headed these projects. Like Chagall, Braque assisted the printers closely throughout the entire process; he chose each image and which technique to use, directed the lithographer or engraver, and corrected and approved the proofs. He authorized production of the work by hand-signing the edition. These “after” prints reproduced prominent, large color paintings from earlier in the artists’ careers–created before they had begun to utilize color printmaking techniques, and generally, from the mid-20th century on–and were championed by print publishers as a means of extending the artists’ commercial output.
