"The Prints of Emil Ganso fills the serious need for documentation of the prints of a remarkable artist who made a major contribution to printmaking in America." "Ganso left no records and was haphazard in titling his prints, giving edition sizes, and signing his work. He used the same titles over and over, and often gave an image more than one title - in several cases as many as four different titles." "As a consequence, the compiling of information on Ganso's prints resembled the production of a mosaic. Information was gathered from the inscriptions on Ganso's prints in public and private collections, accession cards and records in museums, files of clippings in libraries, gallery sales lists, museum exhibition lists, articles in old art journals, books on printmaking, and the artist's correspondence. Except for a few that cannot be located, each print is reproduced in this catalog. Details are given on titles, media, years, dimensions, and edition sizes, as well as other relevant information. A biographic sketch traces Ganso's life from a village in Germany to a faculty post at a leading American university."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
