Monograph and catalogue raisonné
Geoffrey Clarke: a sculptor’s prints is the first in-depth study of the graphic work of Geoffrey Clarke, and includes a catalogue raisonné of his etchings and lithographs from 1948 to 2003.
Geoffrey Clarke has produced more than 200 etchings, some 3,500 monotypes and more than 20 lithographs. The book addresses for the first time the centrality of graphic work to Clarke’s practice, relating it not just to his sculpture but to his work in stained glass, textiles, furniture and wallpaper.
A final section documents the channels through which Clarke’s prints were commissioned, exhibited and disseminated during the 1950s and 1960s, making his work among the most widely seen and ‘marketable’ of British artists during the flowering of mid-twentieth-century British printmaking.
