• Jean Marie Carey deposited Max Beckmann in New York in the group Group logo of Italian FuturismItalian Futurism on Humanities Commons 6 years, 8 months ago

    This is a review of Max Beckmann in New York. Written by Sabine Rewald and published by Yale University Press, this catalogue accompanies the eponymous exhibition held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Fifth Avenue, 16 October 2016-20 February 2017; 148 pages with color reproductions of all the paintings from the exhibition plus other Beckmann works, numerous archival photographs, and illustrations, letters, and sketches from the artist’s notebooks and journals.

    • In the catalogue there are some wonderful photos of Beckmann with the students at the school…it is the one set of photos in which he looks as if he is at ease and enjoying himself. Apparently Quappi Beckmann attended the studio critiques with Max to translate the English he hadn’t quite become fluent in. Very interesting life stories.
