9780856676994: Edvard Munch: The Complete Graphic Works (revised and updated edition)

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.

About the Author:

Gerd Woll is senior curator of prints and drawings at the Munch-museet. Active as an art critic in the early seventies, Woll achieved her degree in art history with a thesis on Munch's Worker's Frieze . She has presented this theme in several exhibitions and catalogues, both in Norway and abroad. Her main interest is in prints and drawings, and she has organized a vast number of print exhibitions, and has written numerous catalogue essays on Munch's graphic works.

From Library Journal:

This definitive updating and expansion of previous catalogs dating from the 1920s will remain the chief reference for Munch's graphic oeuvre for a long time to come. Woll, the senior curator of prints and drawings at the Munch Museum in Oslo, has spent 15 years studying the 17,000 sheets there and a further 6000 impressions in public and private collections worldwide to establish the 748 separate works representing Munch's graphic production (all are reproduced here, many in color). Appendixes list related drawings, reproductions, fakes, major print exhibitions of Munch's work, and a concordance with the earlier catalogs by Gustav Schiefler. Woll provides a clear and informative 25-page overview of Munch's 50 years of printmaking, but the bulk of the text is the 390 pages of catalog entries. Each entry gives the title in English, Norwegian, and German; date, dimensions, and medium; and a careful physical description of the print and any variants. Four pages of the essay in the review copy were misprinted from the German edition, and though the publisher claims that this problem has been caught, libraries should check their copy on receipt. Despite some other generally minor typographical errors throughout and the volume's high price, this will be absolutely essential for research collections and for those interested in the graphic arts.
