The Daily Bleed's Ultimate Worksheet for Max Ernst

Max Ernst Lives!, Collage by James Koehnline A "selective listing" of Max Ernst resources, from Wild Bill Koehnline, who amassed this 13 page collection of materials & most of the information on the Saint Max Ernst Page as well!

Links, organized in Timeline fashion, for planned inclusion in the Max Ernst Saint Page, & in the Daily Bleed. Since this is such a nice resource/collection of image locations & links, we are making this available as is. Please note that this is a "draft". We will be cleaning up some errors, fixing some links, etc.


0402 Max Ernst The 2nd of April (1891) at 9:45 a.m. Max Ernst had his first contact with the sensible world, when he came out of the egg which his mother had laid in the eagle's nest and which the bird had brooded for seven years.

0825 Dorothea Tanning American painter, born August 25, 1910, in Galesburg, IL, moved to New York in 1935, met the Surrealist artists in exile there. Married Max Ernst in 1946, and shared his life for thirty-five years -- much longer than any of the other women associated with him -- Louisa Straus, Marie-Berthe Aurenche, Leonora Carrington, or Peggy Guggenheim. Her art evolved and changed over a long career, including a series of sculptures using the techniques of upholstery. A room-size installation in this medium is in the permanent collection of the Beaubourg Museum, Paris. Tanning's autobiography, Birthday, published in 1986, describes her life through her seventy-fifth year.
