Michael Rothenstein was born into a celebrated artistic family in 1908. His father William Rothenstein was a painter, draughtsman and lithographer, and celebrated Principal of the Royal College of Art. In 1946, after an early career as a landscape watercolourist, Michael Rothenstein embarked on his career as a printmaker, and his obsession with printmaking in all its many forms – lithographs, monotypes, etchings, linocuts, woodcuts, screen prints, mixed media – began. This volume charts and records the output of the artist over a period of almost half a century, during which time his vision and restless energy have enabled him to extend the boundaries of his chosen realm of activity and have earned him a worldwide reputation as one of the most exciting printmakers of the twentieth century. Tessa Sidey of Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery has compiled and edited the volume, working closely with the artist. Her catalogue contains 455 entries spanning the period from 1946 to 1992. These entries demonstrate the range of multiple forms and variations that the images have taken, and all are illustrated, most in catalogue illustrations alongside the entries. There are also over 100 large reproductions, including 62 in colour; altogether there are over 500 illustrations
