Henryk Berlewi Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, b. 1894 - d. 1967

Henryk Berlewi (20 October 1894 in Warsaw – 2 August 1967 in Paris) was a Polish-French painter, graphic designer and art theorist, who is primarily remembered as an abstract artist who paved the way for optical art, but he was also an important figure in Yiddish book design and typography in the early 1920s. He drew portraits of many Jewish writers and artists, among them Uri Zvi Greenberg.

Berlewi was born in Warsaw to an assimilated Polish Jewish family. He studied art in Antwerp and Paris, and was active in Polish art circles.

Supported by his mother, Berlewi studied fine art in Warsaw (1904–1909), Antwerp (1909–1910), and Paris (1911–1912), returning to Warsaw in 1913 to study at the school of design. During World War I he discovered Futurism and Dada, and in 1918 he met the futurist Aleksander Wat and the formist Anatol Stern, fellow Jews whose Polish language verse he later illustrated. In 1918-1922 Berlewi focused on Jewish themes.

In 1920 Berlewi attended El Lissitzky's lecture in Warsaw, motivating him to move to Berlin, where in 1922–1923 he abandoned figurative art for pure constructivist abstraction. In 1922 he participated in the Novembergruppe exhibition. Along with Jankel Adler he was chosen to represent Jewish artists from Eastern Europe at the International Congress of Progressive Artists, where he met El Lissitzky, Viking Eggeling (to whom Berlewi devoted an article published in 'Albatross' in 1922), László Moholy-Nagy, Theo van Doesburg, Gerhard Richter, Laszlo Peri and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. In May-Sep 1923 he presented his first Mechano-Faktura compositions in the Novembergruppe section of the Grosse Berliner Kunstaustellung.

In November 1923 Berlewi returned to Warsaw, where with Wladyslaw Strzeminski he founded the constructivist group Blok. In his review of the exhibition which accompanied the International Congress of Progressive Artists, published in Nasz Kurier, he stated that Expressionism was obsolete and was replaced by Novembergruppe's Dada and by constructivism.

In March 1924 Berlewi published his theoretical tract (in progress since 1922) Mechano-Faktura, using mechanical means to create texture, prefaced by the writer Aleksander Wat. Its basic premise rejects the illusion of space in favor of two-dimensionality; color is reduced to black, white, and red, and visual equivalents of images are accomplished by mechanical means using rhythmic arrangements of lines and simple geometrical forms such as circles and squares. Along with the publication he organises the first mechanofaktura exhibition at the Austro-Daimler Automobile Salon.

In summer 1924 Berlewi was invited by Herwarth Walden, founder of the Der Sturm magazine and gallery to exhibit his mechanofaktura works in Berlin; the German version of his manifesto was published. Later in 1924 he founded the Reklama-Mechano advertising agency with Wat and Stanislaw Brucz, which obtained a contract for the Plutos chocolate brochure.

In 1926 Berlewi quit his research and returned to figurative art, working as a set designer. In 1927 he settled in Paris along with other Polish and Jewish artists. In 1928-1938 he traveled through Belgium and made a few portraits of the political and literary world until he learned that he was seriously ill and stopped working.

In 1942 Berlewi left Paris for Nice, and in 1943-1944 joined the French Resistance. In 1947 he returned to painting. Wanting to "reintroduce the object", he created still lives inspired by the French masters of the 17th century.

Rediscovered by a French critic, Berlewi took part in a major Paris show, Precursors of Abstract Art in Poland (1957). Suddenly appreciated again, he held one-man shows in Berlin (1963, 1964), Paris (1965), and Warsaw (1966). After his death more shows were held in Zurich (1974) and New York (1976, 1978).

He died in Paris.

          Mechano-Faktura -- Farbsiebdruck auf festem Velin. 1924/60. -- 42,6 x 36,3 cm (61 x 50 cm). -- Signiert "H. Berlewi" und datiert. Auflage 200 num. Ex. -- -- Berlewi zählt zu den wichtigsten polnischen Vertretern der Avantgardebewegung der 1920er/1930er Jahre. 1924 veröffentlichte er in der Zeitschrift "Der Sturm" seine Theorie der Mechanofaktur, die grundsätzlich eine räumliche Illusion der Kunst ablehnte, um die Zweidimensionalität der Bildfläche zu betonen. Die Farbpalette ist reduziert auf Schwarz, Weiß und Rot und die Darstellung auf schematische Anordnungen einfacher geometrischer Formen wie Kreise und Quadrate. Diese neue, abstrakte Formensprache sollte dem beschleunigten Rhythmus der sich immer schneller verändernden Realität Rechnung tragen. In Warschau gründete Berlewi später das Mechano Advertising Bureau, wo er Projekte für Kioskwerbung oder Bühnenbilder realisierte.

          Est: €7,500 - €9,500

          Henryk Berlewi - Prospekt Biura Reklama Mechano (polnisch: Prospekt des Büros »Reklama Mechano«). Warschau 1924. Buchdruck (Typen und Klischees) auf Papier. Originalbroschur mit zweifarbigem Originalumschlag. In privater Leinenkassette mit dem Umschlagmotiv in Farbprägung. Sehr seltene Originalausgabe, eines der bahnbrechenden Dokumente der europäischen Avantgarde. Schon das Cover der kleinen Broschüre ruft deren »Insignien« auf: Ein schwarzes Quadrat und ein roter Punkt werden als graphische Elemente zusammen mit einer serifenlosen Typographie, vertikal und in frei gesetzten Größen, auf dem annähernd quadratischen Blatt arrangiert. - Henryk Berlewi gestaltete die Broschüre für das gemeinsam mit Stanislaw Brucz und Alexander Wat betriebene Werbebüro »Mechano« in Warschau, das von 1924 bis 1926 bestand. Das Heft diente dabei als Eigenwerbung und zeigt beispielhaft den gestalterischen Ansatz von Berlewi. - Im Heft sind Texte und Werbesprüche von Brucz und Wat in der typographischen Gestaltung von Berlewi gesetzt. Dabei folgte er den Grundsätzen seiner »Mechano-Faktur«, einem von ihm entwickelten System von Äquivalenten zu Formen und Farben, die im Bild unabhängig von ihrer materiellen Beschaffenheit in ein Gleichgewicht gebracht werden sollen. Berlewi strebte eine geometrische Abstraktion an, die von der Maschine und nicht von der Hand gefertigt werden sollte. (vgl. Kat. Paris - Berlin: 1900-1933, S. 231). Dieses Gestaltungsprinzip wendete er auch für seine gebrauchsgraphischen Arbeiten an. - Gedruckt in der Graphischen Anstalt Kozianskich, Warschau. - »Polen war damals das einzige Land Osteuropas, wo der Konstruktivismus, der Suprematismus und die Mechano-Faktur der Allgemeinheit zugänglich gemacht wurden« (Henryk Berlewi. Funktionelle Grafik der zwanziger Jahre in Polen, S. 8). Henryk Berlewi (1894-1967) studierte in Warschau, Antwerpen und Paris (École des Beaux Arts), bevor er 1922 nach Berlin ging. In diesem Jahr erfand er seine »Mechano-Faktur«. In Berlin lernte er El Lissitzky, Theo van Doesburg, Viking Eggeling und Hans Richter kennen. Zurück in Polen schloss er sich der konstruktivistischen Gruppe »Blok« an, stellte 1924 seine abstrakte Malerei in der Galerie Der Sturm aus und publiziert in Waldens Zeitschrift das »Mechano-Faktur Manifest«. Bereits 1926 kehrte er zur gegenständlichen Malerei zurück. Seine abstrakten Werke, mit denen er optische Illusionen erzeugte, machten ihn zu einem Vater der »Op Art« der 1960er Jahre in der Moderne. Provenienz: Sammlung Eckhard Neumann (1933-2006, »Wiederentdecker« des Bauhauses). - Berliner Kunsthandel. - Berliner Privatsammlung. Die Broschüre ist nur vereinzelt bibliographisch nachweisbar und extrem selten. Zuletzt wurde 2019 ein Exemplar aus der Sammlung Paul Destribats bei Christies Paris versteigert. 14,0 : 12,3 cm.
