NEXT STEP: THE LITHOS

The lithographs of Leo Marchutz represent the core and largest part of his body of work. They also reflect his many innovations with regard to printmaking practice, which he lifted to a very high artistic level.

As we begin our next phase of cataloging, we ask for your help in order to purchase the equipment we need to get the job done. Help preserve the lithos by contributing to the Marchutz Litho Archive Fund.

The Catalogue

The year 2019 marked the launch of an ambitious, wide-ranging project to create a catalogue raisonné referencing the work of German-French painter and lithographer Leo Marchutz.

This project is the first coordinated effort to digitally record and safeguard information on the work of Leo Marchutz. Based on the artist’s inventories, journals, and personal archives, the catalogue benefits from the extensive research and active participation of the artist’s son, Antony Marschutz. Spearheaded by Ben Haggard and Denise Lemoine, this volunteer project welcomes the input and collaboration of all supporters, collectors, family members, and students of Leo Marchutz.

The Paintings of Leo Marchutz

Cataloging began in February 2019. Initial focus is on the paintings of Leo Marchutz, covering two distinct periods of artistic creation: early period paintings (1919-1939) and large format paintings (1963-1975). Subsequent phases of the Marchutz catalogue will include the artist’s drawings, pastels, and lithographs.

Montagne Sainte-Victoire (1928-1931)
Still Life Fruit in Bowl (1931)
King Lear (1964–66)

“Preserving the artistic legacy of Leo Marchutz is the goal of the project for an online catalogue raisonné, which we’re certain will bring heightened awareness to his life and work.
