1976, nearly simultanously with her masters degree at the Werkschulen of Cologne, Maf Räderscheidt showed her small format etchings for the first timeat the Gallery Wiegand, Cologne. The editions were a great success and now she produced countless editions, books and maps, most of them out of stock today.
1980 the intent of the artist in other techniques grew and she designed fewer plates without leaving the etchings totally.
