SECOND PRINTING: From Dada to Surrealism. Jewish avant-garde artist from Romania
Amsterdam, 2012 (Dutch/English)
ISBN: 9789080202986
Price: € 14,95
From 1 June until 2 October 2011, the JHM presented a survey exhibition of the work of Jewish avant-garde artists from Romania. In the 1920s, artists such as Victor Brauner (1903-1966), Marcel Janco (1895-1984), and Max Herman Maxy (1895-1971) astonished the public with their fearless experimentalism. Surrealist, abstract, and expressionistic works, picto-poetry, and personal variations on Constructivism - nothing was too radical for them. More than seventy works of art from the period 1910-1938  are brought together in this richly illustrated book. A second printing of the publication is now available in the Museum Shop.
