Was $77.50; save 33%! Fully reviewing the career of Bohemian-born French painter Joseph Sima (1891-1971) -- a notable member of the Parisian avant garde of the 1920s and 30s -- this catalogue presents 128 canvases ranging from hazy surrealistic landscapes to lyrical visionary abstractions along with more than 100 drawings and book illustrations. Six critical essays thoroughly discussing the poetic and philosophical themes informing Sima's distinctive oeuvre, his independence from contemporary Czech movements, and his illustrations for literary works are augmented by an anthology of reviews, letters and other documents as well as a detailed chronicle of the radical Grand Jeu group of artists and poets with whom Sima was closely associated in the late 1920s.
