Scarce Catalan Avant-Garde

Art. [Revista de les Arts.] No. 3 (–5, 8, 9). [Art. Art Journal.]

[Lleida]: [Art], [1933–1934]. First edition. 5 issues of the Avant-Garde magazine. With numerous graphic illustrations and photographic reproductions in each issue. Text in Catalan. [8]; [8]; [8]; [8]; [24] p. Folded. Light stains throughout. Leaf 5 and parts of leaf 3 and 4 of issue no. 9 are restored with facsimile. All issues restored.

Five issues of the extremely scarce, richly illustrated Avant-Garde journal, Art.

The magazine was published in ten issues between 1932–1934. According to the editors, it would better have been called “Anti-Art” as the articles often criticized traditional arts and introduced the modernist movements coming from Europe.

The editor, Enric Crous-Vidal (1908–1987) was a cartoonist, typographer and graphic designer who was part of an Avant-Garde collective from Lleida. He became one of the most well-known Spanish typographers.

Extremely scarce, Worldcat couldn’t trace these issues in institutional holdings.
