BECKMANN & AMERICA: Art to Hear Book and CD


BECKMANN & AMERICA: Art to Hear Book and CD

HATJE KANTZ    Book Number: 75693    Product format: Hardback

41 important paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture present the 'Half American' Max Beckmann (1884-1950) in an entirely new art and listening experience. Here is a virtual visit to an exhibition. The official audio guide has been recorded onto a 75 minute CD for the occasion of a major exhibition at the Städel Museum in Frankfurt. You will hear all about the highlights of the exhibition and in tandem you can observe all the plates of the works discussed, one per full page in this 60 page hardback book. We love Back Bend, a 1950 bronze, the wild and sometimes grotesque nudes such as in Early Men - Primeval landscape, watercolour, gouache and ink drawings, the scratchy ink drawing of View From a Hotel Window in Chicago and the precise lithographs like the Day and Dream series of Sleeping Athlete and King and Demagogue. The sensual Begin the Beguine is number four in this collection, all in colour where possible. 47 illus. Beautifully packaged.
