The only extensive survey of Nesch’s printed work, this long awaited book will be conductive to a broad dissemination of knowledge of this outstanding printmakers work. Rolf Nesch (1893–1975) is recognized as the inventor of the so-called metal print technique and his graphic work is acknowledged by a specialized audience. Works by Nesch can be found in museums in Stuttgard, Hamburg, London (British Museum), New York (MoMA), Oslo – just to mention some. His graphic activity spanned more than fifty years, and his recorded production comprises 860 works, a number of which have not previously been accessible to the public. The publication of a catalogue will allow everyone to see the quality of his entire graphic work and the chronology will reveal its historical importance.
