    2nd and later printings.

    Story and art by Typex.

    Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669) is a towering figure in European art history: a virtuoso painter, draftsman, and etcher whose enduring influence can be seen in the work of artists from J. M. W. Turner to Francis Bacon and beyond. A prolific self-portraitist, Rembrandt is a deeply familiar figure, yet little is known of his life and character. In this first graphic biography of the Dutch master, Typex pieces together the facts that are known about Rembrandt's life to weave a captivating story about a miller's son who, after a brief spell of fame, suffered the fate of so many artists: financial ruin.

    It is a story about life and death, love and bereavement, success and loss.

    Softcover, 240 pages, full color.

    1st printing. Story and art by Steffen Kverneland. In Munch, writer and artist Steffen Kverneland brings the story of one of the world's most influential painters to vivid life. This extraordinary, inventive graphic novel uses text drawn exclusively from the quotes of Edvard Munch and his contemporaries. Filled with authenticity and life, Munch debunks the familiar myth of the half-mad expressionist painter - anguished, starving, and ill-treated - and draws out his neglected sense of humor and optimism. Born out of a lifelong fascination with Munch's life and work, this is a landmark of graphic biography and the funniest, most entertaining portrait yet of a complex man and the pioneering artist behind The Scream. Softcover, 8-in. x 10-in., 344 pages, full color. Cover price $27.50.

    1st printing. Story and art by Edmond Baudoin. Genius, eccentric, exhibitionist: There is no shortage of adjectives to describe the great surrealist painter Salvador Dalí (1904-1989). Yet this iconic artist and controversial thinker remains a figure shrouded in mystery. Plunging into the Spanish painter's unbridled, fantastical universe, graphic novelist Edmond Baudoin takes us on the trail of a man known as much for his talent for self-promotion as for his bold and extraordinary work. He emerges with a convincing personal vision of the man behind the artist. Dalí is a graphic novel of rare brilliance, which captures in beautifully expressive detail the life of one of the world's most instantly recognizable painters. Softcover, 7-in. x 9 1/2-in., 160 pages, full color. Cover price $19.95.

    Story and art by Fabrizio Dori.

    In 1891, Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) arrives on the French Polynesian island of Tahiti. In this lush paradise, he is liberated from the concerns of the city-dwelling European. He is free: to love, to sing, and to create. In Copenhagen, Gauguin's wife enjoys no such freedom. She would rather forget her odious husband and his degenerate artwork. Instead, in a city resistant to the avant-garde, she is tasked with selling a collection of his extravagantly priced Tahitian paintings. Gauguin: The Other World is a revelatory biography of an artist whose qualities as a man won him few admirers in his own lifetime, but whose talents as a painter would have an enormous influence on the art of Picasso, Matisse, and many more.

    Softcover, 144 pages, full color.

    Written by Vincent Zabus. Art and cover by Thomas Campi.

    Intoxicated by the promise of a promotion, Charles Singular for once allows himself a small extravagance: he buys a bowler hat. But there's a problem: this is no ordinary hat. This one once belonged to the surrealist painter René Magritte, and by donning it Charles has unwittingly stepped into the artist's off-kilter world. What's more, he can't escape. At least, not until he has illuminated the secrets behind Magritte's work. What follows is a hallucinatory journey through Magritte's imaginative landscape, a place where facial features mutate, the crescent moon appears in unexpected places, and answers prove frustratingly elusive.

    Softcover, 72 pages, full color.

    Written by Julian Voloj. Art by Soren Glosimodt Mosdal.

    The dazzling, provocative work of Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) would come to define the vibrant New York art scene of the late '70s and early '80s. Punk, jazz, graffiti, hip-hop: his work drew heavily on the cultural trappings of lower Manhattan. Today, Basquiat's influence can be seen not only in fine art but in fashion, design, and music. This stunning graphic novel captures the dramatic life and exhilarating times of this archetypal New York artist, covering everything from the SAMO graffiti project to his first solo show, from his relationship with Andy Warhol to the substance abuse that would cost him his life. This playful, authoritative biography shows Basquiat's work to be more important, his themes more urgent, than ever before.

    Softcover, 136 pages, full color.
