Overview

Misch Kohn (b. 1916) is 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. This is the first comprehensive study of his life and work.

This lavishly illustrated volume chronicles 60 years of Kohn's beautiful prints, from early W.P.A. lithographs through his work at Laszlo Moholy-Nagy's "New Bauhaus" Institute of Design in Chicago. Here too are his startlingly evocative wood engravings of the 1950s, his technical innovations with etching and serigraphy in the 1960s, and his "all media" collages of the 1970s, '80s, and '90s.

An essay about Kohn's life and analysis of his work is complemented by the first catalogue raisonne of the prints. Misch Kolm reveals a dazzling display of conceptual and technical brilliance by one of America's most respected artists.
