This catalogue accompanies The Metropolitan Museum of Art Department of Modern and Contemporary Art exhibition.
In December 1950, the German Expressionist Max Beckmann set out from his Manhattan apartment to see his Self- Portrait in Blue Jacket, on view at The Met, when he suffered a fatal heart attack. Inspired by the poignant circumstances of the artist's death, Max Beckmann in New York focuses on 40 beautifully illustrated works that Beckmann painted in the city during the last 16 months of his life, as well as earlier works in New York collections. An informative and accessible essay by acclaimed art historian Sabine Rewald, as well as detailed catalogue entries for each work and generous excerpts from the artist's letters, diaries, and ephemera, illuminate Beckmann's difficult and tumultuous life and make this an essential volume for anyone interested in the artist.
Sabine Rewald is The Jacques and Natasha Gelman Curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art in The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
