Max Jacob

Maler und Dichter, 1876-1944

Max Jacob war mit Pablo Picasso, Guillaume Apollinaire, Jean Cocteau, Christopher Wood und Amedeo Modigliani, der ihn auch mehrfach porträtierte, bekannt gewesen. Sein künstlerisches Werk stellt eine wichtige Verbindung zwischen den Symbolisten und Surrealisten dar, deutlich wird das beispielsweise in seinen Prosagedichten „Le cornet à dés“ (1917) und in seinen Gemälden, 1930 und 1938 in New York City ausgestellt. 1944 wurde Max Jacob nach dem Besuch der Morgenmesse von der Gestapo verhaftet und in das Gefängnis von Orléans gebracht; später ins Sammellager Drancy überführt, starb er dort im März 1944 an einer Lungenentzündung.

In part (translated): “You will live in sorrow as you live in sin because sin cannot get enough of himself and what cannot get enough of will suffer. Sin cannot control himself and what cannot control himself is troubled. Where there is trouble cannot be quiet and where there is no quiet there is no happiness. Jesus alone will make you get out of sin. So bless his coming in all the ways possible. Bless the coming of Jesus he only comes with love, with all the love of your soul…then the deliverance from sin will come.

The city expresses the joy on behalf of all cities and all nations: he just resurrecting the area known. He will resurrect the world after having resurrected himself...Resurrect us by him and with him. Find innocence because innocence is power and strength…the good, is happiness. Yes, Jesus entering in Jerusalem, it is happiness entering our lives for time and eternity. For the time, because the exemption of sin is happiness, for eternity because the one who will receive Jesus on the simple soul of love will live eternal life with Him. That all our minds cry out loud with the disciples: 'Hosanna!' And our bones cry like stones…The world will respond like the Pharisees, but he cannot silence our joy.” In very good condition, with moderate uniform toning, scattered creases, and various small edge tears. Accompanied by a vintage unsigned glossy press photo..
