Max Ernst retrospective /

"Max Ernst (1891-1976) is one of the most versatile artists of the modern era. Starting out as a Dadaist in Cologne, he soon became one of the pioneers of Surrealism in Paris. In his persistent discovery of new figures, forms, and techniques, Ernst continued to reorient himself throughout his life, creating a unique body of work whose development was influenced by his eventful life and changing domiciles in Europe and America. The ingenuity in his treatment of the sources of his paintings and inspiration, the different stages of his work, and the changing themes are stunning. The publication shows the wealth of the artist's oeuvre in an exemplary selection of around 170 paintings, drawings, collages, and sculptures, making it possible to experience his approach, which involved drawing on the past, the current political events of the day, and a prophetic, visionary view of the future."--Publisher's website.
