Cobra - A History Of A European Avant-garde Movement 1948-1951
Radical post-war artists’ group Cobra (1948-1951) caused a revolution in modern art that affects the ideas and expressions of art to this day. Creative freedom, experimentation and social engagement were the motives of this movement. In this fully updated standard work from 1974, Willemijn Stokvis presents the history of this influential international avant-garde movement, which included artists such as Asger Jorn, Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, Constant and Corneille. Her study is based on numerous documents, conversations and correspondence with both the artists themselves and many eyewitnesses.
