8vo original folded leaflet (270 x 210 mm) with seven b&w illustrations and essay printed onto thick white coated card folded twice into six panels. German text. Berlin, Nationalgalerie. 1973.
Cover lightly rubbed.

The original large-scale concrete sculpture of ‘Capricorne’ was created by Ernst for his house in Sedona Arizona in 1948. A photograph on the verso here by John Kasnetsis shows Dorothea Tanning and Ernst with the sculpture. In 1973 Ernst presented the plaster model to the Nationalgalerie in Berlin and this leaflet was produced as a guide to the work with a text by Werner Haflmann.
