retrospectiveBook - 2016 | Dutch; Flemish | 1. Auflage, neue Ausgabe.
This retrospective catalogue of 67 paintings, 12 sculptures and more than 60 drawings demonstrates that Karel Appel was more than just a member of the Cobra movement and more than his flamboyant personal image. The survey revisits, for example, Appel?s early interest in Outsider Art, his wide ranging stylistic experiments, and his highly individual - sometimes almost abstract - interpretation of traditional genres like the nude, the portrait and the urban or rural landscape. In addition to essays by Rudi Fuchs, Klaus Ottmann and Dr Franz-W. Kaiser, this catalogue contains an interview with art critic Michel Ragon, one of the last remaining first-hand witnesses of Appel's Cobra period in Paris.
