1 The International Graphic Arts Society (IGAS) was a nonprofit organization founded in 1951 with the dual goals of promoting the work of contemporary printmakers and bringing print media to a wider audience. IGAS served as a driving force behind the post-World War II "Print Renaissance" in the United States for the next two decades. At the core of IGAS was a seven-member jury that was responsible for selecting the artists who would then be commissioned to produce editions that would eventually be sold to IGAS members. Among the artists published by IGAS are Karel Appel, Leonard Baskin, Hans Erni, Stanley W. Hayter, Jean Iurcat, Ynez Johnston, Ezio Martinelli, Seong Moy, Gabor Peterdi, Paul Shaub, Kiyoshi Saito, Ben Shahn, Carol Summers, Rikio Takahashi, Peter Takal and Ada Yunkers.
