This is the companion catalog for Eugen Gabritschevsky: Theater of the Imperceptible. Eugen Gabritschevsky's successful scientific career was cut short by the aggravation of his mental condition, leading to his admission into a psychiatric hospital in Germany, in 1931. There, Gabritschevsky began working on what would become a prolific and refined body of work that, by the time of his death, comprised more than three thousand gouaches, drawings, and watercolors on paper.
This publication accompanies the first major exhibition of Eugen Gabritschevsky's work, shown at La maison rouge in Paris, the Collection de l'Art Brut in Lausanne, and the American Folk Art Museum in New York from 2016 and 2017. It comprises more than two hundred color reproductions of works (including his early works in charcoal), in-depth essays (Antoine de Galbert, Pascale Jeanneret, Annie Le Brun, Noëlig Le Roux, Sarah Lombardi, Vincent Monod, Valérie Rousseau), a detailed chronology illustrated by previously unpublished photographs, and a bibliography. This reference book on the artist offers an illuminating overview of Gabritschevsky's rich and fertile intellectual and creative contributions. Published by Snoeck. 192 pages. Paperback. Measures: 11 x 9 1/2 x 3/4 inches.
