Silver grey cloth boards with whole book almost as new. Jacket clean with only the vaguest of shelf wear edge creases. Lavishly illustrated with colour plates & artists b&w drawings & sketches. An analysis of Lovis Corinth, an artist who is little known outside Central Europe. Each aspect of his career is examined, including the Munich and Berlin years, his sources of inspiration, his subject matter, his painting and his drawing. The book is illustrated with numerous colour reproductions of his oil paintings, watercolours, drawings and graphic work.;Corinth began his career in the realist tradition in the 1880's but he was soon at the vanguard of change. In 1901, following a period in Munich when his religious and mythological paintings brought him his first taste of fame, Corinth moved to Berlin where he became one of the most important artists spearheading the protest against Kaiser Wilheim II's official policy on art.;In 1911 Corinth suffered a stroke and this, coupled with World War I, had an effect on his work. He died in Zandvoort, Holland in 1925. This is a heavy volume at 2.28 kg without p&p.
