Bringing together the work of Francis Picabia, French avant-garde painter and poet (1879–1953), the American, Julian Schnabel, who endeavours to restore painting to its pre-abstraction status, and Jens Ferdinand Willumsen, a controversial figure in Danish art (1863–1958).
Each artist’s work conveys an intensely painterly language with recognizable motifs, clear contours, and raw colours in bold combinations, along with a need to explore and challenge the tradition of painting.
The book reveals surprising connections between stylistic and painterly concerns that span generations and geography.
