Catalogue Illustre de L'Expoisition des Art Incoherents
E. Bernard Et Cie, Paris, 1884. An exceptional and very rare copy of this illustrated catalogue of an exhibition of the Incoherents, an art movement in nineteenth century France, focussing on nonsensical art. This scarce work is a catalogue of works from an exhibition of the Incoherents. Les Arts Incoherents, or The Incoherents, was a short-lived French art movement, which was founded in 1882. It was founded by Jules Levy, and the movement eventually ended in 1889. The art movement presented deliberately irrational, iconoclastic, and nonsensical works. Though the movement was short-lived the artists who participated were well-known, including Paul Bilhaud, Henri Pille, Alphonse Allais, Guillaume Livet, and more. Profusely illustrated with numerous in-text and full page illustrations throughout, as well as two plates and an illustrated title page. In a half calf binding with marbled paper to the boards. Externally, generally smart. Light rubbing to the boards. A little fading and some marks to the spine. A little bumping to the head and tail of the spine. Bookplate to the front pastedown. Ink inscription to the verso to the front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright with only the odd mark and odd spot. Very Good Indeed [Attributes: Hard Cover]
