PIERROT: MELANCHOLIE UND MASKE (Pierrot: Melancholy and Mask). Thomas Kellein. Haus der Kunst, Munich, 1995. Published by Prestel-Verlag, Munich. 192 pp. with 191 ills. (127 col.). 32 x 25 cm. LC 96-170166 ISBN 3791314351 In German.
Examining the art historical development of portrayals of Pierrot, a leading character in European pantomime plays since the 18th century, this catalogue presents 115 paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and photographs depicting the melancholic, white-costumed clown or evoking the theatrical tradition that he represents, including works by such major figures as Watteau, Tiepolo, Goya, Daumier, Nadar, Cezanne, Ensor, Picasso, Lipschitz, Nolde, Klee, Warhol, Hockney and Baselitz. A scholarly ten-part text accompanied by illustrations of numerous additional works traces the evolution of the Pierrot chararacter from its origins in the Italian Commedia dell'arte through its international revivals in recent times and explores the treatment of Pierrot-related themes by individual artists from Callot to Hopper.
