Dean Meeker (1920–2002) was instrumental in shaping the world of printmaking. In 1950 he established the first university class in serigraphy at UW–Madison. He moved serigraphy from the commercial realm into a wider—and established—use as a fine art process. Myths and Masquerades presents a collection of larger-than-life characters drawn from the circus and carnival, the Bible, literature, history, and mythology.
