The Six-Day War prompted him to begin painting subjects from Jewish and Biblical history and in 1993 made the sculpture "Muselmann" for a Jewish memorial at the Buchenwald Memorial˙ as well as a memorial to the deportation of the French Jews in Paris, inaugurated by President François Mitterrand in 1994. COPY No.1662. André Malraux (1901-1976) was an eminent French novelist and art theorist who later in his life became Minister of of Information (1945-46) and Minister of Cultural Affairs (1959-1696). 285x235mm. 120 pages. Semi-rigid cover with dust-jacket, transparent plastic dust-jacket and slipcase. Slipcase dirty and bumped/wrinkled. Jacket spine edges slightly wrinkled. [SUMMARY]: This extremely rare and beautifully illustrated edition of a novel by one of the most influential 20th-century French novelists is in very good condition.
