Ludwig Meidner: Catalogue Raisonne of his Sketchbooks

by Gerd Presler and Erik Riedel

Published for the first time in book form, these sketchbooks offer the perfect opportunity to rediscover the previously repressed work of an important German-Jewish artist. Persecuted by the Nazis as a "degenerate", Ludwig Meidner is now considered one of the leading German Expressionist artists, and even though his work is highly sought after, much of it has yet to be documented. The artist's sketches are extraordinary works of art and all 51 of Meidner's known sketchbooks are reproduced for the first time in this stunning and unique volume. The perfect medium from which to study the vitality and spontaneity of Meidner's art, these sketches display his intensely emotional and often autobiographical themes. Together they constitute a unique opportunity to appreciate the full range of this dynamic artist whose talent has long been hidden from the public eye.
