for me, what really drew me in to getting this book was the number of paintings that are reproduced- this is rarity, as most books focus either exclusively on his drawings or photography.
the range of work represented in this book is astonishing, and makes it a truly comprehensive retrospective of Bellmers life work. there are examples of his early drawings, portraits, and landscapes- which very early on turn to twisted erotic scenes that develop in intricacy and refinement as the book progresses. many paintings and photgraphs are reproduced- the only thing missing seems to be examples of his etchings (which are collected in the book "Graveur"- definitely up there as one of the best).
the complete text of Bellmer's essay "the Doll" is included, as well as some decent essays by art theorists.
if you are a Bellmer fan, this book is a must have. it is a godsend for people who have been so far unable to find books of his work- and as a person who already owns a bunch, i can tell you that it is a unbeatable purchase even if you already have a smattering of his books. this is the only one i have been turning to lately, it has basically trumped the others. get it while you still can!!!
I am an artist since 5.
