Image par Images (Animation flip book inscribed to Hans Richter)
Galerie Denise René, Paris 1955 - Flip book for "Le Mouvement" (April, 1955), a kinetic art exhibition by Galerie Denise René, inscribed "To Mr. [Hans] Richter / with thanks for your patience & interest / Robert Breer." With a note of provenance on the stationery of filmmaker Standish Lawder. Scarce."Image par Images" features animation similar to that found in Breer's landmark shorts "Fuji" (1974) and "Swiss Army Knife with Rats and Pigeons" (1981). Breer's minimalist style is very much indebted to early animation pioneers like Mary Ellen Bute and Hans Richter, whose "Rythmus" series (1921-1925) share Breer's concerns with cadence and geometry. Breer's reverence for his predecessor is apparent in his inscription.Flip book, side stitched. 5 x 3.5 inches. Text block and rear wrapper Near Fine, Front wrapper Fair, detached with paper loss at the left margin, staples oxidized and bent. Still, a presentable copy of a primitive, hand made production. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
