For artists concerned with the free association of images, with the meaningful reas-semblage of disparate objects, and with the play element in art, collage was the quintessentially appropriate technique.
Raised to a significant art form by the Cubists and Futurists, given new potentialities by the Expressionists in Germany and Russia and the Dadaists throughout Europe, collage reached its height among the Surrealists many of whom had been Dadaists earlier , and Max Ernst is generally recognized as its greatest exponent. Born in the Rhineland in and a self-taught painter, Ernst was exhibiting in Cologne by , in which year he met Jean Arp, soon to be one of the founders of Dada in Zurich.
In Ernst became one of the Cologne representatives of Dada, and in the same year became intrigued with the images to be found in mail-order catalogues. He moved to Paris in , and before the year was out published two works in collaboration with the outstanding poet Paul Eluard: Repetitions and Les malheurs des immortels, the beginning of the series of collage books that was to culminate in Une semaine de bonte others were ha jemme tetes in and Reve d'une petite fille qui voulut entrer au Carmel in In his individual collages Ernst used paint and the most diverse materials, and the act of pasting was not always a part of the creation, but in these public.
The printing process concealed the joins completely, and the results are incredibly effective. Une semaine de bonte was finished in three weeks during the artist's visit with friends in Italy in The fateful events of that year in Ernst's homeland, including the Nazis' condemnation of his work, may account for the mood of catastrophe that pervades this collage "novel. The first booklet, "Sunday," in a purple paper cover, bears the acheve d'imprimer date on which printing was completed 15 April; the second, "Monday," in a green cover, is dated 16 April; the third, "Tuesday," in a red cover, is dated 2 July; the fourth, "Wednesday," in a royal blue cover, is also dated 2 July; the fifth, completing the "Week," in a yellow cover, is dated 1 December.
In his earliest collage books Ernst generally made up completely new scenes out of many separate pieces, but for most of Une semaine de bonte he used complete existing illustrations as base-pictures, altering them with pasted-on additions. His base-pictures were chiefly the relatively crude and usually lurid wood-engraved illustrations of French popular fiction that were plentiful in the books and periodicals of the late nineteenth century.
The subject matter of such literature was torrid love, torture, crimes passionnels and the subsequent incarcerations and executions by guillotine , hatreds and jealousies among the very wealthy and the very indigent: the inferior spawn of Eugene Sue and Emile Zola.
Ernst made his trip to Italy with a suitcase full of such pages. The art historian Werner Spies has identified three of the base-pictures those for pages 20, and as illustrations from the novel Les damnees de Paris by Jules Mary.
It is also known that Ernst stopped at Milan on his way to his friends' place in Italy, and there downloadd a Dore volume said to have been used in the "Cour du Dragon" sequence. By adroit manipulation of elements in these pictures, he created a phantasmagoric "novel" that touches secret springs of laughter and horror. Ernst's "Week of Kindness" is also a collage of concepts and language. Non commercial use only. Maximum copies, or 5 years digital use.
