ESTÈVE, Maurice. ~ Carnet de Guerre Paris: Éditions des Cendres, 2012.
18mo (115 × 65 mm), ff. 162, colour reproductions throughout, plus text booklet, pp. 19, . Original boards and wrapper in brown cloth slipcase.
Number 104 of 150 numbered copies of this facsimile edition of Estève’s remarkable, near-miniature wartime sketchbook (1939-1940), with introductory booklet by Françoise Chapon. Estève (1904-2001) was essentially self-taught, working under the clear influence of Cézanne and Braque, and hovering between representation and abstraction. His wartime notebook is a truly exceptional representation of a French soldier’s experience, superbly reproduced here by Éditions des Cendres.
