Not since Rembrandt has an artist scrutinized his own image more tellingly than Max Beckmann (1884-1950). From the age of fourteen until his death at sixty-six, Beckmann created an extraordinary body of work that addressed the concerns of identity and self-understanding in a world of chaotic change. Beckmann's varied self-portraits provide a compelling autobiography and an eloquent commentary on an era.
Curator and author Peter Selz has gathered a wide range of paintings, drawings, and graphic works that illustrate Beckmann's obsession with the self-portrait. An eminent scholar of Max Beckmann, Peter Selz has written a major new examination of the Beckmann self-portraits as seen through the tradition of autoportraiture in western art. Former Curator of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Founding Director of the University Art Museum, Berkeley, and Professor Emeritus of Art History at the University of California at Berkeley, Peter Selz organized the seminal Beckmann retrospective held at the Museum of Modern Art in 1963.
In an Afterword written especially for this volume, the distinguished American painter Nathan Oliveira conveys his impressions of Max Beckmann, the teacher, newly arrived in America. Beckmann's quest for the renewal of a traditional art form is touchingly remembered in the artist's recollection of his student days under Beckmann.
