Description - Jeanne Mammen: The Observer by Annelie Lugtens
The rediscovery of icons of the 1920s, " degenerate " experiments, magical - poetic abstractions - this wide - ranging publication shows the complete work of Jeanne Mammen (1890 - 1976), a Berlin artist on the threshold of the modern age. Her productive output mirrors the extreme circumstances she experienced, from war, destruction and pover ty to the emergence from the ruins. The Berlin painter and graphic artist Jeanne Mammen is one of the most awkward and colourful figures of recent German art history. Her complete oeuvre and the breaks it reveals reflect and comment in an entertaining and critical way on the political and aesthetic upheavals of the last century. Mammen ' s art is highly regarded in specialist circles far beyond the boundaries of Berlin and Germany. A monograph which has been in planning for twenty years presents an overview o f her life ' s work to a broader public and leads viewers not only deep into the 1920s, but also opens up surprising new perspectives on an outstanding deep into the 1920s, but also opens up surprising new perspectives on an outstanding artist of Classic Modernism.
