Walter L. Strauss
"This is the first comprehensive pictorial reference and catalogue raisonné of all the surviving chiaroscuro woodcuts of the German and Netherlandish masters...Author Walter Strauss has provided a valuable tool for both the private and professional collector of prints. In most print collections chiaroscuro impressions are presently not cataloged separately; it is one of the aims of his book to facilitate this process. The various states of each print are described in detail or illustrated for reference and a great many chiaroscuros are here described or illustrated for the first time."--dust jacket
