HATJE CANTZ

Edvard Munch: A Genius of Printmaking

Published by Hatje Cantz
Text by Gerd Woll.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Edvard Munch: A Genius of Printmaking</I>.Love, pain and death; passion, loneliness and sorrow--the entire oeuvre of Edvard Munch (1863–1944) revolves around the fundamental experiences of human existence. Munch is regarded as one of the trailblazers of the Expressionist currents that informed European painting in the early twentieth century. Throughout, Munch’s graphic works were not by-products but rather a central element of his oeuvre, from the first etchings in 1894 to the lithographs he made just before his death. Among the masterpieces included in this representative volume of images and texts are graphic versions of Munch’s world-famous subjects in the form of large-format color lithographs, etchings, woodcuts, hand-colored prints and experimental prints on colored paper. Munch’s graphic works, in which he achieved a persuasive condensation of his major Symbolist allegories, captivate the viewer with their subtle color palettes and their expressive sense of reduction.
Edvard Munch (1863–1944) was born in Loton, Norway, and studied design and art in Oslo. In May of 1885 he traveled to Paris on a scholarship, and after the deaths of his sister and father the following year, he began to spend most of his time in France. His painting first achieved fame--or notoriety--with an 1892 exhibition in Berlin, which also led directly to his influence upon the German Expressionists. Despite struggles with alcohol and mental health, Munch lived to the age of 80.

Edvard Munch: A Genius of Printmaking

Edvard Munch: A Genius of PrintmakingEdvard Munch's haunting 1895/1902 lithograph, Madonna, is reproduced from Hatje Cantz's new survey, Edvard Munch: A Genius of Printmaking. Gerd Woll writes, "The first painted version of the motif, as we know it today, was completed in the spring of 1894 and when Munch began experimenting with printmaking that year, it was one of the first motifs he executed in a rather cautious drypoint. Surrounding the central image is a border depicting sperm and an embryo, and written sources reveal that one of the earliest paintings was equipped with a similar frame. Munch repeated this border in the lithographic version of the motif, but in several variations of the lithograph it was masked out during the printing process and thus deleted. The border, together with the title under which it would eventually be known, Madonna, rendered the lithograph highly controversial and on certain occasions the title was therefore compressed to read Monna. The lithographic version was executed in Berlin in 1895, drawn with a lithographic crayon and abundant applications of tusche on the lithographic stone. On the reverse side of the same stone is Vampire." continue to blog
