Through the game of international coproductions, one can consult a catalogue before the exhibition it refers to comes out. Once again it is the case with this superb volume with elaborate graphism (embossed cover, typographic graphism on the letters ). It presents one of the meteorites of art of the XXth century, Wols, who died at the age of 37 in 1951, under an angle we hardly know, that of a photographer, his first job when he arrived in Paris at the beginning of the thirties. The exhibition was first shown at the Kupferstich-Kabinett in Dresden and will wait until the fall of 2014 at the musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris to present urban views, portraits and selfportraits, and Surrealist still lives very much in vogue.

Wols Hatje Cantz, 2013, 448 p., €68 (in English).
