A magnificently illustrated book exploring Max Beckmann's love of theatre and how that influenced his work

Max Beckmann (1884-1950) was fascinated by the world of the theatre, the circus and music halls as metaphorical settings for human relationships and world affairs.  Acrobats, dancing clowns and gesturing actors swirl throughout his paintings.

This magnificently illustrated exhibition catalogue that accompanied a show at Kunsthalle Bremen is the first publication to explore Beckmann's life long love of the stage and how Beckmann  viewed himself as a 'theatre manager, director, and sceneshifter'.

The book provides a striking introduction to one of the 20th century's most spectacularly creative periods of art and design.
