9780979984792: Beyond Painting: And Other Writings by the Artist and His Friends (Solar Art Directives 4)

Alongside Salvador Dalí and André Breton, Max Ernst remains one of the most famous names to be associated with Surrealism, and must now be regarded as one of the most original, prolific and best-known artists of the 20th century. Assembled in 1947, when Ernst had attained the height of his artistic powers, BEYOND PAINTING is a definitive autobiographical document of the painter and the creative processes behind his work, enhanced by testaments by many of his friends including fellow Surrealists André Breton, Paul Éluard, Roberto Matta and Hans Arp, as well as others such as New York art dealer Julien Levy. BEYOND PAINTING also contains over 150 illustrations dating from 1917-1947, including complete versions of Ernst's revolutionary experiments in frottage and collage, Natural History and The Lion of Belfort. Also included is a preface by New York artist Robert Motherwell and a chronology of Ernst's life written by the painter himself. Solar Art Directives features the most innovative artists of the 20th century.

About the Author:

Max Ernst was born near Cologne, Germany. He studied philosophy and art at the University of Bonn and served in the German Army during First World War. Ernst joined the Dada movement in Cologne and in 1919 he began to work on collages and books composed of irrational images and fantastic landscapes. In 1922, Ernst moved to Paris where he became a central figure in the Surrealist Movement. In 1949 he was arrested in France as an enemy alien and escaped to New York where he was welcomed by the New York art world and made fantastical paintings that reflected his sadness and horror.
