William Kentridge Prints
William Kentridge Prints is the first book to focus solely on Kentridge's formidable print oeuvre, filling a gap in published work on the artist to date. It is also the first major publication on Kentridge to be published in South Africa. The book includes over 180 works and presents the full range and complexity of Kentridge's printmaking, from his linocuts of the 1970s to his recent sophisticated and distinctive Thinking Aloud drypoints created while he was working on his production of Mozart's opera The Magic Flute, that premiered in Brussels in April 2005.
The book includes an introduction by David Krut, an essay by the award-winning poet, critic, and translator Susan Stewart, Professor of English at Princeton University, and a series of rare personal commentaries by Kentridge that give wonderful insight into the ideas and working methods of an obsessive and highly sophisticated printmaker.
