Friday’s library snapshot

October 31, 2014

This book was borrowed from the library to be used in a recent publication about Max Weber; it was on my desk to be re-shelved; I just love the cover design.

Max Weber, American of Russian decent. He began learning art at at the Pratt Institute of Brooklyn, New York and became a teacher.  After many years he was able to afford to go to Paris to study where he was pupil of Matisse.  Although he aspired to El Greco, Henri Rousseau and Picasso, he preferred the art of primitive peoples and the sculpture  of Egypt and Assyria.  This little book of poems shows his interest in poetry later in his career and is his first published collection.

Cubist poems by Max Weber.

    That’s quite a striking cover and sounds like quite an interesting book.
