Enlarged revised and redesigned edition

Rainer Michael Mason

Scheidegger & Spiess, Zürich, 2014


The prominent Swiss artist Markus Raetz works across a variety of media, but printmaking constitutes a major part of his work. The most comprehensive collection of his prints to date, Markus Raetz. The Prints expands on a previous edition, which covered the years between 1957 and 1991, with the addition of further early and recent works. The rest of the content has been fully revised, and the book comes with a new collection of essays on Raetz’s life and work. Together, the two new volumes explore the artist’s major themes, particularly the phenomenon of perception as opposed to the means of representation.

The publication of Markus Raetz. The Prints coincides with a major exhibition of Raetz’s prints and sculptures at the Museum of Fine Arts in Bern, Switzerland (31 January to 18 May 2014) and the Musée Jenisch in Vevey, Switzerland (26 June to 14 October 2014). A Raetz completist’s dream, this work authoritatively documents a printmaking career that spans from the 1960s to our own historical moment.
