The modernity of Max Beckman, recognized today as one of the major European painters of the twentieth century, lies in his attitude toward experience rather than in any formal experiments. Analyzing the artist's distinctive contribution, Dr. Peter Selz writes: "Beckmann, by endowing the dream with precise structure and meticulous detail, belongs to the mainstream of modernism which has its parallel in the writings of Kafka and Joyce, in the paintings of de Chirico and Bacon, and the films of Antonioni and Bergman. In all their work the feeling of human estrangement is enhanced by the use of hard physical reality." 160 pp.; 121 illus. Published in 1964 and edited by Petel Selz, this rare book from MoMA Publications is available in extremely limited quantities. Each book from this special selection has been stored for decades in MoMA’s warehouse.
