Whether working with woodblock or zinc etching plate, silkscreen or linoleum scrap Michael Rothenstein [1908-93] was perhaps the most experimental British graphic artist of the 20th century. For over 4 decades he dedicated the greater part of his career to printmaking, advocating it as an expressive means of revelation, not merely a technique for reproduction. Rothenstein exploded the boundaries of traditional printmaking and this insightful and aptly named book captures the same excitement and daring that galvanised his work. Michael Rothenstein Artist Printmaker – Exploding the Boundaries contains 108 pages and features a series of essays by acclaimed writer – and long time Rothenstein champion – Mel Gooding together with 101 examples of his work. It is published alongside a major new Goldmark curated exhibition of Rothenstein’s work which will premiere at Dean Clough Halifax in February 2019 and tour the UK until 2022, and a Goldmark produced film also entitled Exploding the Boundaries.
