A comprehensive catalogue over Edvard Munch's prints.
Edvard Munch's production of graphic works holds a special position both with regard to quality and quantity, and spans a period of 50 years – from 1894 to 1944.
This catalogue raisonné gives complete details about technique, editions, states, versions, reprints and where to find the many surviving lithographic stones, wood blocks and metal plates.
There are photographs of all the 748 registered prints, making it an indispensible tool for professionals, but also a splendid art book for anyone fascinated by Edvard Munch.
There are also some images which have never been published before, and a very useful thumbnail gallery of all the works.
Gerd Woll´s extensive research and the enormous attention to detail in the individual entries will ensure that this beautifully illustrated book will remain the standard work on the subject.
Gerd Woll is the leading expert on Edvard Munch of today having written both the Catalogue Raisonné of all the artist's paintings (4 volumes, 2008) and now the complete graphic works. The author has been chief curator of the Munch Museum of Oslo for 40 years, and her publications are the authoritative catalogues with references to Woll and the number in the catalogue, like Schiefler used to be quoted in the generations before Woll.
Every graphic work of Munch is commented in this book, and the works are documented with a large number of illustrations, many not published before.
Published by Orfeus Publishing, 2012. The catalogue is avaliable in the museum shop.
