Janet Fish is a prominent American artist in mid career. Alongside her well-known, brilliantly hued, light-filled still lifes and landscapes with figures, she has produced an exciting body of prints in a variety of media. Her innovative lithographs, etchings woodcuts, and screenprints – whose subject matter is based on arrangements of glasses, ceramic bowls, flowers, and fruits reflected in the light from the windows of her New York loft or her home in Vermont – constitute a significant body of editioned work. This catalogue raisonné of Fish’s prints to date, each reproduced in full color, will inform and delight the collectors, connoisseurs, and interested admirers who may not be familiar with this aspect of her oeuvre. The accompanying essay by Linda Kramer provides insight into the process and techniques employed by the artist.
