San Francisco, Calif.: Alan Wofsy Fine Arts, 2013. Recent publications. 2nd edition. 9-1/8 x 12-1/4 inches. 23 x 31 cm. Cloth in dust-jacket. 272 pages. 850 works described and reproduced. 8 color plates. This second edition of Europe at War, 1939-1940 was published in January, 2013. There are now 272 pages as opposed to 248 pages in the first edition of 1998, with 8 new color plates. There are numerous corrections, additions and revisions. Titles are made more descriptive and when a number of works in a series have the same title, they are numbered sequentially, to facilitate referencing a work with the same title in the same chronological series. Some works were inadvertently omitted from the first edition, which had been included in Zervos or in the Musée Picasso catalogues. These are now included. A number of works formerly in the collection of Marie-Thérèse Walter, unknown to Zervos, were also not included in the first edition. These were first described and reproduced in the 1973 exhibition catalogue Une Collection Picasso by the Galerie Jan Krugier in Genève. Some of these have seen been subsequently resold at public auctions and the sales are noted. Many entries have been updated in light of descriptions at public sales at the major auction houses since 1999, as well as from museum exhibition catalogues. The most important auctions were those of the collection of Dora Maar (born Henriette Theodora Markovitch (November 22, 1907 - July 16, 1997), Picasso's companion from 1936 to 1943. The Maar auctions were held in Paris on October 27, 28 and 29, 1998. The sale of Oct. 27-28 had the title Les Picasso de Dora Maar and the one on Oct. 29 had the title Les Livres de Dora Maar, Autographes et Documents. The sales were conducted by PIASA and J. K. Mathias at the Maison de la Chimie, under the sub-title: Succession de Madame Markovitch. Dora Maar apparently kept the works that Picasso gave her to the end of her life and she had a vast collection. Works from these sales are designated as either Maar Succession or Maar Livres. The Maar Succession sale included numerous small unique mixed media works and paper cut-outs. There are also sculpture and drawings on unusual materials, including bone, terracotta and matchbox lids and bottoms. Item #334-7
