Max Beckmann at the Saint Louis Art Museum: the Paintings
by Lynette Roth

"Max Beckmann at the Saint Louis Art Museum," is the first book to examine in-depth all thirty-nine paintings from the Saint Louis Art Museum's renowned collection. Featuring some of Beckmann’s most celebrated images, it offers fascinating insights into Beckmann’s life and art - in particular his underappreciated early work and previously unexplored aspects of his final years in the United States.

Each of the six chapters includes a discussion of relevant works, documentary photographs, and comparative illustrative material that will deepen readers’ understanding of Beckmann’s evolution as an artistic force. Thorough provenance, treatment and condition, and exhibition histories, along with literature, are provided for each painting. The book also includes a chronological list of exhibitions in which the Saint Louis Art Museum’s paintings by Beckmann have been featured as well as a full bibliography.
