Catalogue of the Corpus Baselitz exhibition

A bilingual French/German catalogue accompanies the exhibition “Corpus Baselitz”.

Éditions RMN-GP, 152 pages | €29

With texts by the authors and the artist himself, as well as the interview conducted in his studio, the exhibition catalogue accompanying Corpus Baselitz sets out to contribute to a clearer understanding of both the evolution of nude images in Bazelitz’s work and his recent work engaging with the history of art.

Martin Schongauer

The art of Martin Schongauer (c. 1445-1491) is an exquisite combination of the sweet style of the painters of the Upper Rhine with the striking naturalism of the Flemish primitives. The book presents the paintings and engravings of the man that Albrecht Dürer considered to be his master. It retraces the development of his style through the artist’s fundamental influences, and shows us how the art of “Martin the Beautiful” made a spectacular impact on the Northern Renaissance through the circulation of his engravings in Europe.

Les Grünewald du Musée de Colmar / Joris-Karl Huysmans

It was on his journey to Alsace and Flanders in 1903 that the novelist and art critic Joris-Karl Huysmans (1848-1907) discovered the Isenheim Altarpiece on display at the Musée Unterlinden in Colmar. The notes he took on his journey in a small notebook formed the basis for his piece entitled “Les Grünewald du Musée de Colmar” (“The Grünewald Paintings at the Colmar Museum”), which was published in the Mois littéraire et pittoresque in March 1904. The text in turn formed the first part of his book Trois Primitifs (“Three Primitives”), printed in 1904 and dated 1905.
