    Max Beckmann
    R520.00 inc. VAT


    Max Beckmann was among the greatest painters of the 20th century, yet no retrospective of his work has been mounted in the art capitals of New York, London, and Paris in over 30 years. Perhaps the lapse of attention has to do with the importance of abstraction in 20th-century art, and Beckmann’s work is always figurative, simultaneously muscular and enigmatic and has enormous and unsettling power.
