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.

Format: Hardcover
In Germany, it is easy to study the amazing work of Max Beckmann, but those of us who enjoy his work in the US have to rely on books and the internet. He excels as no other at depicting the horror of the early decades of 20th century Germany. This book has an excellent 46-page summary of his life and work, with comprehensive analysis of 40 color plates of his major works. The symbolism in his paintings is extensively reviewed. The author, Dr. Stephan Lackner, was a longtime friend and patron of the artist.

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.

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