Description

South African artist William Kentridge is internationally acclaimed for his drawings, films, and theatre and opera productions. He is also an innovative and prolific printmaker – of etchings, engravings, aquatints, silkscreens, linocuts and lithographs – often experimenting with challenging formats and combinations of printing techniques to create highly worked, intensely atmospheric imagery. His prints range in scale from intimate etchings and drypoints to linocuts on rice paper and canvas measuring over eight feet high and are reproduced on a variety of materials, a tactile approach which is echoed in the design and production of this volume.
