Book Description
This second volume of the catalogue of the oil paintings of Alexej von Jawlensky covers the artist's superbly exciting middle period, from his enforced departure from Munich in 1914 up to 1933, when the Nazis banned his work from exhibition. All 833 works discussed are illustrated - 340 of them in color.

During World War I Jawlensky's painting underwent a radical change. In the series "Variations on an Abstract Theme" he stylized the view from his windows - a small garden, path, lake, mountains beyond - to a culmination of total intensity. He increasingly regarded the human face as the sign of an inner vision. The latter series "mystical heads," "Faces of the Saviour," and "Abstract Heads" pulsate with color and seem to express the combined forces of architecture, music, sculpture and dance.

Book Description
One of the most original and powerful Russian twentieth century artists, Alexej von Jawlensky worked for most of his life in Germany with early spells in France. After he had come to terms with the impact of Gauguin, Cezanne and Matisse, his work went through Fauve and expressionist periods in the development of a highly personal style, In 1909 he helped found the Neue Kunstlervereinigung in Munich, and along with Kandinsky was an outstanding member of that group. He became one of the great twentieth century explorers of the soul, for whom art was 'nostalgia for God.'

This, the first of three volumes that will catalog nearly 2,000 oil paintings, covers the period up to his enforced departure from wartime Germany, during which he developed his brilliant use of colour. Pioneering introductory and end matter to the...

Book Description
The third and final volume of the Catalogue Raissonne of the oil paintings of Alexej von Jawlensky contains 807 works including addenda to the first two volumes, with virtually every work illustrated in colour. The culmination of this period, and of Jawlensky's entire oeuvre, is the series of "Meditations," intense, small-format works in which the rigour of the "Abstract Heads" is taken to the furthest extreme, but is suffused with even greater radiance.

This catalogue is preceded by a general evalutaion of the artist and an essay on the "Meditations" by Angelica Jawlensky, plus a list of works confiscated by the Nazis, and selected correspondance between Jawlensky and his representative in the USA Galka Scheyer. The volume concludes with complete and updated exhibition lists, a general index and an index to...
