About

Max Papart (1911-1994) "The Blue Rider" Original Etching with Aquatint, circa 1973 This is a rare artist proof. The artist proof is pencil signed and titled by the artist. The regular edition was limited to 65 copies and these were only signed and numbered by the artist. Plate dimensions 8.5" x 11.5". The frame measures 16.5" x 20.5". Very good condition. Max Papart was active/lived in France. Max Papart is known for cubist painting-landscape and circus scenes, collage portrait. Influenced by such rich and varied sources as Cranach, Delacroix, Matisse, and Klee and inspired by his friend Jacques Prevert, Max Papart did work intended to open a window into a world that provokes as much thought as pleasure. Subjects include sunny landscapes of the South of France as well as witty collaged portraits. Working in a Cubist style, he depicted circus scenes, flirting couples, soaring birds, and other cheerful subjects with flat, overlapping planes of contrasting colors and textures which suggest many levels of depth. He often achieved what has been called a "time window" effect, through which the viewer senses the past or future.
