Alexej von Jawlensky. Catalogue Raisonné of the Oil Paintings. Volume One (1890-1914); Volume Two (1914-1933); Volume Three (1934-1937) This catalogue is preceded by a general evalutaion of the artist and an essay on the “Meditations” by Angelica Jawlensky, plus a list of works confiscated by the Nazis, and selected correspondance between Jawlensky and his representative in the USA Galka Scheyer. The volume concludes with complete and updated exhibition lists, a general index and an index to locations and provenance covering all three volumes. The first volume covers the period of oil PPaintings from 1890-1914 This second volume 1914-1933 of the catalogue of the oil paintings of Alexej von Jawlensky covers the artist’s superbly exciting middle period, from his enforced departure from Munich in 1914 up to 1933, when the Nazis banned his work from exhibition. All 833 works discussed are illustrated – 340 of them in color. The third and final volume of the Catalogue Raissonne of the oil paintings of Alexej von Jawlensky contains 807 works including addenda to the first two volumes, with virtually every work illustrated in colour. The culmination of this period, and of Jawlensky’s entire oeuvre, is the series of “Meditations,” intense, small-format works in which the rigour of the “Abstract Heads” is taken to the furthest extreme, but is suffused with even greater radiance.
