In 1976 the journalist Stein ove Grønsund suggested to colleagues that Michael Rothenstein be commissioned to produce a mural scheme for the entrance hall to Fredrikstad's Instutt for Journalistikk. The final result, still in situ, consists of four separate images, drawn from fragments of Norwegian, English and American newsprint, heat pressed and hung together to make a big mural panel. Each individual screenprint was subsequently given a small edition run of twelve.
Michael Rothenstein PortraitBorn in Hampstead, London, on 19 March 1908, Rothenstein was the youngest of four. He studied at Chelsea Polytechnic and Central School of Arts and Crafts, 1924-7. He had his first one-man show in 1938 and during World War II participated in the Pilgrim Trust Recording Britain project. After the war, he taught printmaking at Camberwell School of Art and was Art Fellow at Sheffield University in 1962.

Rothenstein became one of the most experimental printmakers in Britain during the ‘50s and ’60s. As well as found objects such as wood offcuts and metal debris, he incorporated fresh 20th century imagery into his relief prints, combining photographic material with traditional woodcuts and linocuts. Numerous major galleries currently hold his work and he was made Hon. RE and elected RA in 1983.
