32.5 x 25.5 cm. 208 pp. Original cloth. Illustrated in colour, partly with folding plates and loose inserted folding poster in rearpocketWidely considered one of the major works of Expressionist printmaking, this series of spectacular woodcuts by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner is presented for the first time in a comprehensive study, specifically designed to allow readers a full understanding of the artist’s achievement. Based on the legend of Faust. Carved during a stay in a sanatorium near Frankfurt, these woodcuts reflect Kirchner’s own tortuous emotions as he tells the story of a man who sells his shadow to the devil. Essays by Kirchner scholars discuss the series’s vital contribution to the artist’s oeuvre, while exploring his extraordinary use of color, line, and shape to tell a story that is at once universal and highly personal. – Fine copy.
