Collages, frottages, ready-mades (1919-1929), Galleria Arturo Schwarz, Milan, January 9th - 31st, 1964 Provenance: Bodley Gallery, New York (label on the reverse of the frame); Galleria Arturo Schwarz, Milan; private collection, Italy Max Ernst's collage novels – ‘La Femme 100 têtes’’’’ (1929), ‘Rêve d'une petite fille qui voulut entrer au Carmel’’’’ (1930) and ‘Une semaine de bonté’’’’ (1934) – constitute a large and self-contained part within his oeuvre. From a temporal perspective, these three novels date back to Ernst’’’’ surrealistic period. The collages were conceived using different materials such as illustrative woodcuts from magazines, catalogs and novels of the 19th century. In the end, Ernst created picture novels without text, and thus invited the viewer to entirely dependent on a personal approach. Accordingly, everyone is right to reconstruct a displayed incident, to recognize a story or to make an attempt of creating meaning. Condition: The collage is in good condition, consistent with age. The paper is slightly browned and has partly removed from the underlying cardboard. There is also faint light staining along the edges. The frame is in good condition with only small traces of age and wear. The collage dimensions are 15.6 x 13.5 cm, while the cardboard measures 18 x 15.5 cm, and the frame 26.5 x 24.5 cm. Max Ernst (1891-1976) The German painter, graphic artist and sculptor Max Ernst studied philosophy, psychology and art history at the University of Bonn. As a part of his studies, he worked on the art of mental illness and visited often museums. Thanks to the friendship with August Macke and his encouragement, Ernst decided to devote himself entirely to painting in 1912. Along with Johnannes Baargeld and Hans Arp, he co-founded the DADA group in 1919. In 1922, he moved to Paris, where he joined the Surrealist circle and became one of its most important exponents. During World War Second, he went in exile to America in 1941. In 1953, Max Ernst went back to France and became a French citizen. Ernst is known for his surreal, fantastic images with enigmatic figures. (cbo)

Description:
Max Ernst 1891 - 1976 NU ALLONGÉ ET PERSONNAGES signed indistinctly Max Ernst (lower right) oil on canvas 20.5 by 25.5cm., 8 by 10in. Painted in 1934. Authentication The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by Werner Spies and Dr Jürgen Pech. Provenance Paul Sacher, Switzerland Sale: Galerie Kornfeld, Bern, 17th June 1988, lot 49 Fuji Television Gallery, Tokyo (purchased at the above sale; sale: Sotheby's, London, 24th June 2003, lot 167) Purchased at the above sale by the present owners Exhibited Okazaki, Okazaki City Museum & Wakayama, Museum of Modern Art, Max Ernst, 2001, no. 1-22, p. 46 Catalogue Note "What is a forest? A marvellous insect. A drawing board. What do forests do? They never go to bed early. They wait for the woodcutter. When do good times come for forests? In the future: The season when pools of shadow are transformed into words, when beings with the power of speech are proud enough to seek for midnight at any time. ... And man, what position did he occupy? Man and the nightingale were in the best position to fantasise: in the forest, they found an ideal guide for their dreams" (Max Ernst, quoted in 'Mysteries of the Forest' in Minotaure, Paris, 12 May 1934). Nu allongé et personnage shows Ernst using rich texture and strong vibrant colours to enhance the subject matter of his work. Colourful creatures that inhabit forest-like landscapes are used by Ernst as visual metaphors for the feelings of delight and oppression the artist associated with nature. With the use of dramatic perspective, imaginary symbols and a dreamlike atmosphere, the artist strives to portray the mystical relationship between one's inner vision and the outer world, whilst capturing the complicated nature of human relations.
