We finally have the excellent, newly edited oeuvre catalogue of the paintings of Max Beckmann in our hands.
Together with Professor Maaz from the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen, we were able to browse through the extensive volumes and are proud to offer this limited edition of 200 copies.
Max Beckmann was always one of the main artists of Galerie Thomas. We have presented many solo exhibitions over the years and have been able to place many works in important collections.
According to his own list of paintings, of the 843 paintings that Beckmann painted in his lifetime, 706 are published in large-format colour illustrations in the new oeuvre catalogue, 68 in black and white, while only 69 have been lost or destroyed and may never have been photographed. The expert Dr. Anja Tiedemann has created this new edition on behalf of the Kaldewei Kulturstiftung, Ahlen, in cooperation with the Hamburger Kunsthalle and the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen – Max Beckmann Archive, Munich on the basis of the catalogue raisonné published in 1976 by Göpel.
The Hamburger Kunsthalle is also maintaining the digital catalogue raisonné online. The book volumes have large-format illustrations on both page sides and provide inspiring access to further details, also from the journals of the artist. QR codes take you directly to the digital catalog raisonné maintained by the Hamburger Kunsthalle online.
The two-volume oeuvre catalogue with an english supplement can be exclusively acquired through Galerie Thomas for the price of € 1,290.00 plus shipping.
