Janet Yake

See works by Yake

Janet Yake has been working primarily in monotype for over 20 years. A Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grant in 1998 enabled further explorations of this unique method of printmaking. Yake's inviting and intimate depictions of interiors, dominated by floral arrangements, colorful fabrics and table settings, evoke the domestic masterworks of Bonnard, Vuillard and Matisse.

After a number of group shows, her first individual exhibition was held in 1988 at Fitch-Febvrel. The next year saw her first one-person overseas show, at Galleria Grafica in Tokyo. Yake's monotypes illustrate the jackets of Laurie Colwin's Home Cooking (Knopf, 1988) and More Home Cooking (Harper Collins, 1993).
