Elmer Bischoff: A Survey of Paintings and Drawings, 1937-1972

With an introduction by William Otton and texts by John Bischoff and Hilarie Faberman.


Published to accompany the exhibition of the same name at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, this catalogue covers Bischoff’s output from his earliest cubist-inflected paintings, through Abstract Expressionism and the inception of Bay Area Figuration and his ultimate return to abstraction in 1972. It includes a biographical sketch by curator Hilarie Faberman that identifies key relationships between Bischoff’s life, career and artwork, along with an essay by musicologist - and son of the artist - John Bischoff, that is an original and privileged look into the influence of jazz on Bischoff’s painting.
