A detailed study of the career of prominent Dutch Magic Realist Koch (1901-1991), this catalogue presents good reproductions of some 60 paintings and 20 drawings produced by the artist from 1921 to 1980, the selection encompassing many psychologically charged portraits of women and studies of prostitutes, laborers and contortionists as well as meticulously rendered still lifes and symbolic landscapes. Includes a fully illustrated catalogue raisonne of 212 paintings, drawings and decorative works by Koch, a brief biographical text, and five essays variously examining the personal, political and literary sources of the artist's enigmatic imagery, his painstaking techniques, the significance of psycho-sexual themes in his work, and his conservative political and cultural values.
