Raoul Hausmann

Hausmann, Raoul

DADA-Künstler (1886-1970). Exceptional archive of correspondence in German to art antiquarian and gallery owner Gunter Fuchs in London, comprised of 20 TLSs, one ALS, a sketch, and a typescript of his essay entitled “Dada Ist Mehr Als Dada [Dada Is More Than Dada],” Limoges. 4to. 25 Seiten.
$ 14,106 / 12.500 € (47367)

Letters are signed in a variety of manners, including “Hausmann,” “R. Hausmann,” “Raoul Hausmann,” and two artistically rendered forms of his signature. The ALS is on the reverse of a woodblock print, signed on both sides; and the sketch is in pencil over an offset print of one of his artworks published in the journal hortulus 53, transforming the abstract brushstrokes into figures of horses. The subjects of Hausmann's letters include the role he once had played in the Dada movement, advising his correspondent to treat Hannah Hoch’s statements on him with caution, and on mixing up Gunter Fuchs with the German painter and artist Gunter Bruno Fuchs.

Many refer to Haussmann's various publications, and the limited response his work had found in Germany. In overall fine condition. An exceptional archive rife with terrific content, touching upon many aspects of Hausmann’s often under-appreciated influence and legacy..
