Stéphane Mandelbaum, a monograph


Out of print

For too long, except for his family and a few passionate collectors, Stéphane Mandelbaum’s work has remained in the shadows. His recent rediscovery has finally brought it to the attention of the public and institutions.

Several years of research with family, friends and collectors have led to the discovery of a multitude of documents and many unpublished works. The result of this work had to be shared. From the first childhood drawings to the last “scraboutchas”, this monograph offers a global vision of Stéphane Mandelbaum’s work allowing to measure its importance.

Between insolence and deference, lightness and seriousness, Stéphane Mandelbaum knew how to find references that were equal to the work that awaited him. He put his virtuosity at the service of the subject, upsetting the codes of representation. Nearly forty years after his death, the force of his images remains intact.
