HERBIN. Musee d'Art Moderne, Ceret, 1994. Organized in association with Musee Matisse, Le Cateau-Cambresis. Published in association with Editions Anthese, Arcueil. 176 pp. with 156 ills. (126 col.). 30 x 26 cm. LC 95-127617 ISBN 2904420703 In French.
Reviewing the oeuvre of a leading figure in the evolution of abstract art in France, this catalogue features excellent reproductions of 83 paintings, nine watercolors and eight reliefs produced by Auguste Herbin (1882-1960) from 1900 to 1960, ranging from early Impressionist and Cubist works to paintings of the 1940s and 50s based on the artist's "alphabet" of geometric forms in unmodulated colors. Five critical essays trace the progression of Herbin's career prior to the creation of his first pure abstractions in the late 1910s, examine his relationship with Paris gallery owner Leonce Rosenberg, describe his sculptural experiments of the 1920s, and discuss his role in promoting non-objective artistic principles as a founding member of the Abstraction-Creation group.
