Overview

edition 6 of 8

Max Papart was said to compose rather than paint, since he understood the ideas that painting and music have in common: balance, form, harmony, dissonance, and tone. His cubistic paintings and prints are very structured, with overlapping planes suggesting depth. Bright colors reflect humor and warmth, while some of his works achieve a “time window” through which a pensive viewer might sense the past or future
