Or, in German: Edvard Munch (1863-1944) Holzschnitte. (Michael Imhof Verlag; ISBN-10: 3865686818 / ISBN-13: 978-3865686817 )
The catalog was for an exhibition of Munch woodcuts at the Museum Behnhaus / Drägerhaus in Lübeck from 19 June – 5 September 2011. Among other works, it featured a large number of rare woodcuts from a Norwegian private collection.
Like the catalog The Bloemaert Effect: Colour and Composition in the Golden Age, this catalog was actually a project of my fellow translator Finbarr Morrin for which, due to a variety of reasons and as is common in the business, he pulled in a second person — me — to assist in the translating and proofreading of the texts. As is often the case with art-related projects, I enjoyed the job immensely and was rather jealous of being only a subcontractor — although I do believe I was given credit in the imprint.
Amazon.com gives the details: "Forty pieces from a private Norwegian collection of the elegant woodcuts of Edvard Munch are presented in this collection, and are supplemented by the Museum Behnhaus Drägerhaus exhibition and catalog. [...] The showcase illustrates all woodcut works in detail, contains a short biography of Munch, and is presented as a bilingual edition in both English and German."
