Alfred Kubin: Drawings 1897-1909

Edited by Annegret Hoberg
With contributions by Annegret Hoberg, Klaus Albrecht Schroder, Peter Assmann, Andreas Geyer, Werner Hofmann, and Olaf Peters

Alfred Kubin (1877-1959) created drawings that plumb the depths of the shadow world of the human subconscious, with its unguarded impulses and fears. Though a contemporary of artist Gustav Klimt and designer Josef Hoffmann, Kubin eschewed the decorative impulses found in their work. Instead, he produced dark, hallucinatory visions of violence and eroticism.

This catalog accompanied an exhibition that featured more than 100 works on paper. Essays examine the artist’s early career, his status as a literary figure, and his development of a form of Modernism that ran counter to prevailing trends.
