Item description for CoBrA: The Colour of Freedom by Karel Appel...

The international CoBrA movement of 1948-1951, a European avant-garde embodying post-WWII freedom, has been compared to American Action Painting in both its aesthetic and its effect. CoBrA: The Color of Freedom documents one of the worlds largest collections of CoBrA work, some 250 pieces, many recently cleaned, restored and reframed, along with letters, magazines, invitations and other ephemera. This expanded and updated edition celebrates the reopening of the works current home, the expanded and renovated Stedelijk Museum in the Dutch city of Schiedam. Schiedams is one of the most comprehensive CoBrA collections in the Netherlands, including works by Karel Appel, Eugne Brands, Constant, Corneille, Jan Nieuwenhuijs, Anton Rooskens and Theo Wolvecamp. This attractive, wide-ranging and colorful overview, with its wealth of illustrations and comprehensive approach, offers an exceptional introduction to and record of CoBrA. For the more specialized reader it also includes a great deal of art-historical information about conservation, restoration and art policy.
