Louis M. Eilshemius

This publication considers several aspects of Eilshemius’ oeuvre never before dealt with in an art historical publication. Writings about the artist are rather numerous, but this context is wholly new. Katharina Neuburger has studied the artist and his work intensively, spending countless hours in American museums and archives, and presents us now with a revealing overview of selected works. She approaches the artist, who engaged with many contemporary tendencies and, thus, left a wide-ranging work, but who was nonetheless ahead of his time and often misunderstood, while placing his work in relation to American Modernism.

A special feature of this book is its actually consisting of two volumes connected at their backs. No. 1 contains the text, No. 2 the pictures. The books can either be read or viewed individually or, by opening both in parallel, used simultaneously. This allows the text and its corresponding illustrations to be perused in tandem.
