A painter of international repute, Kees van Dongen (1877-1968) is perhaps best known for his enthusiastic adoption of Fauvism; a movement whose principles he embraced with boundless curiosity and with which he established a singular and dominant position. However, beyond this he was also a prolific graphic artist who mastered the techniques of lithography, etching, aquatint, engraving, pochoir and offset prints, book illustration, and poster design. Historically, there has been a dearth of reliable and usable documentation about the diverse range of prints that the artist produced. This has now been remedied. Comprising over 350 color reproductions, Kees van Dongen catalogs all the prints the artist ever made. Supported by an enlightening narrative that provides fascinating insights into the development of Van Dongen's print career, such as his masterful control of the pochoir technique, this book also offers full descriptions of the works cataloged. An invaluable resource, Kees van Dongen: The Graphic Work is essential reading for collectors, curators, academics, students, and enthusiasts of Van Dongen's work.
