PAUL KLEE. Association Copy.
Editions Cahiers d'Art,, Paris 1929 - Grohmann, Willl. PAUL KLEE. Association Copy. Paris: Editions 'Cahiers d'Art, 1929. Illustrated. Cream Wrappers. First edition. With line drawings & 84 plates of Klee's work, an edition limited to 900 numbered copies. An early exposition of Klee's work. A near fine copy. Very uncommon. This copy from the working library of noted Canadian & International artist, Alfred Pellan, who has turned the book into a private scrapbook having added many relevant cuttings of Klee's work as well as a portrait of him to the title page. It was Pellan's habit to add to his reference books in a a distinctly creative manner - sparking his extraordinary imagination so reflected in his own fantastical works. A wonderful Association Copy from the working library of a noted artist. Alfred Pellan [1906 - 1988] Quebec/Canada Painter, Sculpter, Lithographer. In the early 50's, Pellan was the first Canadian to hold a solo exhibition at the Musée national d'art moderne in Paris. Pellan's production is large & varied. His early canvasses, from his first stay in Paris, show a marked fauvist influence. From the 1940s on, his works become closer to cubism & surrealism, then branch out into their own distinctive style. Though primarily a painter, Pellan enjoyed working with many different materials, including hooked rugs & glass. He also did costume & set designs for the theatre. Pellan received a great number of prizes & distinctions, including four honorary doctorates. In 1967, he was made Companion of the Order of Canada. He was awarded the Paul-Émile Borduas prize in 1984 & made an officer of the Ordre National du Québec in 1985. Over the years, he participated in over one hundred collective exhibitions abroad, strengthening his international reputation. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
