By Joris-Karl Huysmans

Huysmans a publié trois ouvrages de critique d'art: L'Art moderne (1883), Certains (1889) et Trois Primitifs (1905), composés à partir d'articles parus dans los angeles presse. Après s'être essayé, dans L'Art moderne, au compte rendu de los angeles visite des salons officiels et des expositions impressionnistes, il suggest, dans Certains, l'inventaire de ses goûts personnels, en s'attachant à l'étude de peintres - Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon, Félicien Rops... - et de thèmes particuliers: "Le fer", "Le monstre", and so forth. Dans Trois Primitifs, enfin, il s'attarde sur des artistes jusque-là négligés: constitué d'une monographie de Mathias Grünewald et du récit de l. a. visite de l'Institut Staedel de Francfort, ce texte apparaît comme un retour sur l'origine même de son intérêt pour les arts plastiques. Souvent ironiques et pleins de verve - Il peint à l. a. bile, comme d'autres à l. a. gouache, à l'encaustique ou au pastel écrivait Charles Maurras -, ces écrits présentent un double intérêt: outre qu'on y découvre les peintres de prédilection de Huysmans, de Degas à Caillebotte, en passant par Renoir, Monet et Hokusai, ils éclairent aussi, par ricochet, les romans de l'auteur et l. a. fonction singulière qu'y assument les œuvres d'art.

Dem Grafiker, Maler, Bildhauer und Lehrer Max Beckmann (1884-1950) gelang mit seinem Lebenswerk etwas, um dass sich viele Künstler vor und nach ihm vergeblich bemüht haben: Ein Œuvre zu schaffen, das den großen Kunsttraditionen huldigt ohne dabei nachahmerisch zu wirken, das expressionistisch ist ohne dabei die Realität ins Unkenntliche oder Lächerliche zu abstrahieren, das sleek und wegweisend ist ohne der Selbstgefälligkeit eines avantgardistischen Denkens zu verfallen. Beckmanns Kunst lehnt sich gegen jederlei Zuordnung auf und bleibt dabei doch konkret und erfassbar.
Vor dem Hintergrund von Max Beckmanns turbulentem Leben, seinem Dienst im Ersten Weltkrieg, der Ungewissenheit der Weimarer Republik und der Flucht aus Nazi-Deutschland, beleuchtet Ashley Bassie in diesem Bildband Beckmanns Schaffen und dessen Beziehung zum Expressionismus seiner Zeit.
