KURT SCHWITTERS. Centre Georges Pompidou, Musee national d'art moderne/Centre de creation industrielle, Paris, 1994. Classiques du XXe siecle. Published in association with Reunion des musees nationaux, Paris. 398 pp. with 592 ills. (121 col.). 28 x 29 cm. LC 95-156301 ISBN 2858507996 In French.
Extensively reviewing the achievements of a renowned German artist whose oeuvre embodies a singular synthesis of the principles of Dada, Constructivism, Surrealism and other movements, this voluminous catalogue showcases some 130 collages, reliefs and wall-mounted assemblages and more than 50 paintings, drawings and sculptures produced by Schwitters (1887-1948) from 1917 to 1947, including many Merz works that reflect in their incorporation of found texts, images and materials the artist's all-encompassing concept of art. Augmented by commentaries on many of the exhibited pieces and a broad selection of excerpts from Schwitters's writings, nearly 30 essays include discussions of such topics as the artist's close association with Jean Arp, his links to the Russian Constructivists, his innovative work in graphic design and typography, his exploration of the relationship of music to abstract art, and the significance of his celebrated Merzbau, the inventive architectural and artistic environment he created over the course of many years in his Hannover studio.
