Anita Ree: Retrospective, Hardback Book

Anita Ree: Retrospective Hardback


This retrospective of the German avant-garde painter Anita R e includes works from her entire oeuvre.

Featuring examples from all the different media Anita R e (1885-1933) worked in, including paintings, watercolors, drawings and handcrafted works, this book sheds new light on a multifaceted oeuvre that ranges from impressionistic outdoor painting, to cubistic Mediterranean landscapes, to portraits inspired by New Objectivity.

As an independent woman of the art world R e existed between tradition and modernity, a German artist with international aspirations, and a Jew raised as a Protestant.

As a result, R e's work references her in-between existence in a changing modern society during the Weimar Republic, while tackling the ever present question of identity.

Her selfportraits reveal the self as a foreign being, she depicts people of different origin, intimate female nudes, and exaggerated society gentlemen, while her southern landscapes appear to be a place of yearning, her figural images as secular portrayals with religious content, and solitary animals are found in barren dunes.

This volume, showcasing R e's full range of work, delves into the issue of the marginalization of artists, and is sure to delight fans of Modern art.
