The first major monograph on the American artist.
Marcus Jansen is a cartographer of conflict. He has been called a pioneer in redefining urban landscape painting for the last two decades. Jansen transforms landscapes into critical social commentary in an era of globalization and a growing new world order while exploring the human condition often working paradoxes and drawing parallels between historic and contemporary events and references.

Modern Urban-Expressionism (Rare and Signed)
"The 21st. Century's urban contemporary art movement is continuing to gain international attention and has been noted as the first movement of the century. American born Painter Marcus Jansen, shows an unmistakable art style. He uses unusual abstract expressionism techniques with a modern edge while he redefines the genre of expressionism. One of America's leading curators of the 1960's, discovers Jansen in this introduction written in 2006.
"I told him I believed he was the originator of a new movement which I call "Urban Expressionism" and that I believed there will be many followers in this new style. But there will only be on Marcus Jansen."
Foreword is written by Art Historian Jerome A. Donson (Director of The American Vanguard Exhibitions Europe 1961).
