Drawing on a wealth of primary sources, including letters, memoirs, photographs and critical appraisals in the press, Stephen Coppel provides a fascinating account of the work and lives of these seven artists. This book will introduce to a new audience the vitality and appeal of these prints, which, from the Second World War until quite recently, have been largely overlooked. A key feature of the book is an extensive and fully illustrated catalogue raisonne which documents over 380 linocuts, arranged in chronological order by artist. The catalogue records their exhibition history and location and provides documentary and contextual notes on individual entries.CF l I .a#39; Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and Louvre 1919 from 5 blocks, printed in 1 ) cobalt blue; 2) cerulean blue; 3) cobalt blue; 4) vermilion; 5) yellow ... states that the previous owner had purchased this from Flight in Paris about 1922. ...
