Frederick Mershimer
American, born 1958



Born in Pennsylvania and a BFA recipient from Carnegie Mellon University, Mershimer also studied at Parsons School of Design, Pratt Graphic Center and Manhattan Graphic Center.  The artist resides in 
Brooklyn which, along with New York City, provides him with many of  the scenes that ultimately lead to paintings and prints. 

Mershimer is a highly recognized practitioner and teacher of mezzotint printmaking, a labor-intensive process that produces rich blacks and subtle grays.

His work is in the collection of the Arkansas Arts Center, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Cleveland Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Arts, Flint Institute of Arts, Fogg Art Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Art, New Orleans Museum of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art and numerous other institutions. Exhibited widely since the mid-1980s, his prints are the subject of a catalogue raisonne, “Frederick Mershimer: Mezzotints 1984-2006” (Stone and Press, New Orleans, 2007).

Zanatta Editions is pleased to not only represent Mershimer with a broad selection of his mezzotints but to also have available small and large pencil studies for some of the artist’s most famous prints.
