Incredibly scarce Japanese book on the work of German artist Max Ernst, published to accompany the traveling solo exhibition (Sapporo, 15 September-23 October, 1983; Kokura, 28 October-13 November, 1983; Osaka, 18 November -6 December, 1983; Shimane, 7 January-29 January, 1984; Tokyo, 3 February-15 February, 1984; Kamakura, 25 February-25 March, 1984)

With an introduction by German art historian Werner Spies, in German and Japanese, this profusely illustrated book is quite a valuable volume on Ernst as it concentrates its pages on a huge collection of his lithography, frottage, collage, drawing, etching, and other graphic works, rather than his more well-known works in painting and sculpture, bringing to the surface many lesser-seen works of the artist. A very visual book, containing over 300 colour and black and white reproductions.

Text by Werner Spies.
In Japanese and German, with titles and introduction in English.
Includes bibliography.

Max Ernst (2 April 1891 – 1 April 1976) was a German painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and poet. A prolific artist, Ernst was a primary pioneer of the Dada movement and Surrealism.
