Cobra

£25.00

Product description

Paperback in VGC but very small stain to bottom of title-page.

The radical post-war Cobra group of artists and poets (1948-51) took their name from the three cities where the main participants lived - Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. Painting and drawing spontaneously, and often working in collaboration with each other, they produced imagery teeming with fantastic creatures and exuding intense emotions. This richly-illustrated book conveys the energy and subversive power of this influential movement, its experimental and provocative spirit, and its attempts at forging a new visual language in a climate of post-war austerity and hope. - To accompany touring exhibition at BALTIC (1 March - 21 April 2003), Manchester City Art Gallery (3 May - 15 June) and Irish Museum of Modern Art (3 July-21 September) - Includes essays by Cobra specialists Peter Shield and Graham Birtwistle
