Max Beckmann: The Sketchbooks

Max Beckmann: The Sketchbooks

by Christiane Zeiller and Gerd Presler

Hatje Cantz presents this luxurious catalogue raisonné of Beckmann's 54 sketchbooks--the first time they have been published in their entirety. Beckmann used these sketchbooks throughout his active career, which spans the period between 1899 and his death in 1950. Their more than 1,300 pages (plus nearly 100 single sheets that have now been assigned to their original sketchbooks) are all reproduced here and annotated with texts elucidating themes and composition methods. This catalogue raisonné provides revelatory information and insight into Beckmann's process as a painter.
