Konrad Klapheck

Published by Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, 1974, 203 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 27 cm, Dutch / French / German

Price: €18

Produced on the occasion of Konrad Klapheck’s 1974 exhibition at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam. Klapheck, who was just 10 when World War II ended, saw in the destroyed cities and ruined buildings all around him a certain beauty or spectacle. After becoming a student at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, Klapheck turned to a different kind of subject matter, creating the first of his many “machine pictures”: the 1955 painting Typewriter. He went on to expand his repertoire to include sewing machines, faucets, telephones, irons, and even a hay-turning machine

Ei-Q, April 28, 1911 – March 10, 1960, was a Japanese artist who worked in a variety of media, including photography and engraving.

He was influenced by the Surrealist aesthetic and also published essays promoting photography as an art form independent of painting. This did not imply a rejection of painting, and he worked toward what in 1935 he termed photo-dessins, a fusion of photograms and paintings.

Hans Bellmer (13 March 1902 – 24 February 1975) was a German artist, best known for the life-sized pubescent female dolls he produced in the mid-1930s. Historians of art and photography also consider him a Surrealist photographer.
