Philip Wilson Publishers, Nov 13, 2012 - Art - 527 pages

Munch's graphic works have fascinated people all over the world for more than a century. He himself arranged a number of exhibitions of his prints, and was represented in many print rooms and important private collections in Europe before World War II. His total output amounted to between 20,000 and 25,000 print impressions. The author's extensive research and the enormous attention to detail in the individual entries will ensure that this remains the crucial work on the subject for many years to come. The text gives informative details about technique, editions, states, versions, reprints, and where to find descriptions of the many surviving lithographic stones, wood blocks and metal plates in the Munch-museet. Finally, this catalogue raisonné includes photographs of all the 748 registered prints (many in color), making it an indispensable tool for professionals, but also a beautiful art book for anyone fascinated by Edvard Munch's pioneering contribution to the art of printmaking.
