The manifesto of concrete art

Art concret. Numéro d'introduction du groupe et de la revue Art Concret. Avril 1930.

Paris: Art Concret, impr. Union, 1930. Wrapper design by Theo van Doesburg. First edition. 15 p. In original wrappers / Very light water stains and the cover is little bit worn. Still a good copy.

The first and only issue of this periodical by the artist's group 'Art Concret', founded in 1929 by Theo van Doesburg. The term Concrete Art was introduced by van Doesburg in his 1930 Manifesto of Concrete Art, which was published in this magazine ("Base de la peinture concrete" and "Commentaires sur la base de la peinture concrete"). He stated that there was nothing more concrete or more real than a line, a colour, or a plane (a flat area of colour). Its members included Otto Gustav Carlsund, Jean Helion, Leon Arthur Tutundjian and Marcel Wantz. Very rare.
