Paris: Pierre Lecuire, 1959. Lanskoy, André. Folio. (28)pp., + 23 plates. From an edition of 170 copies, this is one of twenty-five deluxe copies with an additional suite of pochoir plates. Signed by the author/publisher and the artist below the colophon. Illustrated with twenty-three brightly colored pochoir plates, one of which is double-page, after paintings by André Lanskoy, executed by Maurice Beaufumé, who was responsible for Matisse's Jazz. Lanskoy was a Russian-born painter of the Tachism movement in Paris, where he lived and worked from 1921 until his death in 1976. Tachism, part of the larger Art Informel movement, focused on the intuitive and spontaneous expression of the artist. Cortège is true to form for Lanskoy and Tachism, with its richly colored and boldly arranged abstract shapes - Lanksoy's own interpretation of Lecuire's prose poem. At the time, Lecuire was still early in his career; this was only his fourth published work. Lecuire continued to publish illustrated poetic compositions through the 1980s. Major exhibitions of his work were organized at the French House in Oxford, England in 1977 and at the National Library of France in 2001. Lecuire died in 2013. Issued loose in a multi-colored pochoir wrapper designed by Lanskoy, and housed in a cloth chemise backed in lithographed patterned paper after a design in the book and a cloth slipcase. Visible offsetting from the pochoir, now mitigated by interleaved tissue; chemise and slipcase both show some rubbing and marking, and slipcase splitting at corners. A near fine copy.
