Rolf Nesch (1893?1975) is recognized as the inventor of the so-called metal print technique. His career spanned more than fifty years, with a body of work that comprises 860 prints?a number of which have not previously been accessible to the public. The publication of this catalogue will allow everyone to see the quality of his entire graphic work and it will reveal its historical importance, for much of the printmaking of the 1950s emerged directly from the technical experimentation that Nesch had carried out earlier in the 1930s and 1940s. This catalogue raisonn? is the result of years of extensive research carried out by Sidsel Helliesen and Bodil S?rensen of the National Museum of Art, Architecture, and Design in Oslo. They worked in close collaboration with the artist?s family whose large collection, in addition to the museum?s, constitutes a major source. The attention to detail and the comprehensive text will make this book a standard reference work for many years to come.
