Trippin' With Beckmann

A few of Max Beckmann's rich, beautiful and disturbing triptychs. So visually satisfying. So powerful. (Wouldn't his iconic figures make an incredible Tarot deck!)

I hardly need to abstract things, for each object is unreal enough already, so unreal that I can only make it real by means of painting. Max Beckmann

I love Max... and most all the German Expressionists (especially the woodcuts) Great faces and weird birds.
