  • "Many paintings by Max Beckmann (1884-1950) depict the world of the theater, circus, and variety shows. Driven by an urge toward showmanship and display, the painter turned the pictorial frame into his stage. This publication is the first to pursue the question of how Beckmann's art fits in with the concept of world theater in the history of ideas. It opens up a new way of looking at the work of this exceptional artist of the twentieth century"--Back jacket cover
