 In a 1915 newspaper article he stated that his aim at the time was to express "not what I see with my eye but with my consciousness . . . mental impressions, not mere literal matter-of-fact copying of line and form. I want to put the abstract into concrete terms."

  1. It's interesting that, unlike Picasso, Weber's oeuvre changed from Cubism to more realistic paintings over the course of his life. His sense of color and form are quite remarkable.

  2. What an amazing talent. Thanks for this post.

  3. Oh I really like these, especially the Joel's Cafe one for some reason. I'm not sure I've ever heard of this guy. I'll have to keep an eye out.

  4. He's not an artist I'm familiar with. He seems to have had a whole variety of styles. Reminds me a little of Chagall in some places. Interesting.

  5. Oh! Oh! Fantastico!
    It is like a different take on so many artists and genres - exciting to say the least. Thank you for bringing Max Weber and his gallery of work to our attention!
    Loved it! A real treat!

  6. Looks like all enjoying their books.

    Don't let the childlike joie de vivre distract your from the creativity vision or technical achievement!

  9. Cool! I only know sociologist Max Weber! ;) I'm partial to the very last one you posted.


  10. Thanks for the comments!

    If anyone is following comments: are any of you html blog savvy? I'm having a problem with a feature on blogger that I can't get to stop highlighting text in garish white. Such are the limitations of an art lover trying to do her thing on blogger.

    Any help would be appreciated!

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
