About the Author

Max Beckmann was born in Leipzig in 1884 to a family of farmers. He began his formal studies in 1900 at the Weimar Art Academy and moved to Paris soon after with his new wife. Drafted into World War I, he was deemed unfit to serve in the second, and spent the war years in Germany, outlawed by Hitler from exhibiting his "degenerate" paintings. After the war he came to America, taking up the post of painter in residence at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. In the late 1940s he moved to Manhattan, where he died of a heart attack en route to see his work in a show at The Metropolitan Museum of Art on December 27, 1950.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Reich Claude on April 25, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This book is the catalogue for the largest Beckmann exhibition ever held, in 2003,at the Centre Pompidou, the Tate Gallery and the Moma. All the masterpieces of this great artist are illustrated and explained, following a clear chronology and putting them in the historical and social context in which they were created. High-quality texts (especially the analysis of Beckmann's influence on contemporary artists like P.Guston, or the recurrent presence and meaning of the mirror in his paintings) make this an indispensable work. Highly recommended.

This is a great book on a truly great artist! It is loaded with color plates of his paintings and also some black and white. It is a nice overview of his work and life.

Format: Hardcover
intelligent text and many illustrations, sadly however, none are in color. Beckmann deserves more.
