View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Max Ernst draws on an unprecedented collection of source material, much of it published here for the first time, to present a compelling portrait of the artistās life and an intellectual portrait of an entire period. These letters and notes by friends and contemporaries provide insight into the reception of his oeuvre, illustrate Ernstās own texts and shed light on his biography, and are interspersed with numerous reproductions of his work, all of which recall the variety and richness of the artistās discoveries and innovations.

'A magical production. As a document of 'convulsive identity', Life and Work is a disconcerting joy to behold' --The Art Book

'Magnificent ... a rigorous piece of research and a compelling read' --Artists & Illustrators

'Set to become the standard introduction to one of the most enigmatic artists of the last century' --The Art Newspaper

'Handsomely produced ... packed with illustrations ... fascinating ... successfully reflects the artist's kaleidoscopic identity, his essential collage aesthetic and the trademark mixture of chance and choice that characterized most of his creative techniques'
--The Times Literary Supplement
