About this title


Misch Kohn: Beyond the Tradition is the first comprehensive study of one of the most significant master printmakers of the modern era. Hailed as a pioneer for "breaking the shackles of conventionality," Kohn has been lauded for reinvigorating printmaking in post-war America. Now, for the first time, this book brings together work from all six decades of his artistic career.
This book chronicles sixty years of Kohn's prints, from the early W. P. A. lithographs through the startlingly evocative wood engravings of the 1950s, the technical innovations with etching and serigraphy of the 1960s, and his "all media" works of the 1970s, '80s, and '90s. An essay about his life and analysis of his work is complemented by numerous illustrations and the first catalogue raisonne of the prints.
