Women impressionists( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a comprehensive introduction to the works of four women Impressionists: Berthe Morisot, a key protagonist of the Impressionist movement; Mary Cassatt, who had her own special role to play in the movement and was held in high esteem by fellow painter Edgar Degas; Eva Gonzales, a gifted artist and Edouard Manet's only student; and Marie Bracquemond, who abandoned painting in the interests of marital harmony." "This superbly illustrated book also contains essays by a number of writers, who besides providing a knowledgeable introduction to these four women painters, also succeed in conveying to us the context in which they worked."--Jacket

Julian Schnabel : Malerei = paintings 1978-2003 by Julian Schnabel( Book )

19 editions published in 2004 in 4 languages and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julian Schnabel, who was born in 1951 in Brooklyn, New York, was among the young artists who were celebrated enthusiastically in the eighties for having helped revive painting, a genre which had been declared dead. His highly expressive large-format paintings soon made him a star of Neo-Expressive painting. Schnabel often uses unusual supports for his paintings - such as used army tarpaulins, porcelain plates, Mexican pottery, or animal skins - and his experimentation with materials is reflected in his painting as well. His works, which unite oil painting and collage, fluctuate between abstract and figurative, and are sometimes dominated by letters or words. This book presents sixty-five works from the past twenty-five years in full-page or double-page color illustrations. Photographs by Schnabel himself provide a look at the painter's opulent surroundings in his house and studio. The publication is completed by a detailed biography and essays by prominent authors."--Jacket

Gustave Caillebotte : an impressionist and photography by Karin Sagner( Book )

15 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings of Gustave Caillebotte depict striking Parisian street scenes, from Boulevard Haussmann and The Bridge of Europe looking out onto the Gare Saint-Lazare to Caillebotte's best-known work, Paris Street, Rainy Day, which hangs in Chicago's Art Institute today. Caillebotte has long been acknowledged as an important painter--and munificent patron--of the French impressionist movement. Yet his paintings, in their near-photographic precision, stand apart from the works of Renoir and Monet in important ways. Gustave Caillebotte: An Impressionist and Photography sets out to explore the development of the artist's distinctive style. Though there is no evidence that Caillebotte practiced photography, he took an early interest in the art form, influenced perhaps by his brother, the photographer Martial Caillebotte. As a result, Gustave Caillebotte's paintings show an emphasis on realism and often take on the composition and perspective of a photograph as well, with figures toward the center in sharp focus, while those in the foreground or background remain indistinct. Karin Sagner and Max Hollein have carefully chosen from among Caillebotte's works a selection of paintings that exemplify this characteristic of the artist's style. They are presented here alongside critical essays and works by photographers who were Caillebotte's contemporaries and shared an affinity for documenting the nineteenth-century French capital, including André Kertész, Wols and László Moholy-Nagy, Édouard Baldus, Charles Marville, and Eugène Atget. While there have been many studies of Caillebotte's work, this is the first book to publish his paintings side-by-side with a selection of early photographs taken between 1850 and 1930. Together, they establish Caillebotte as the pioneer of a radically modern photographic form that added a new dimension to French impressionism and exerted an important influence on later photography."
László Moholy-Nagy retrospective by László Moholy-Nagy( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout his career Moholy-Nagy produced brilliant works in painting, film, photography, sculpture, set design and typography. A leading proponent of the Bauhaus School, he strove to apply artistic principles to every aspect of daily life. This companion volume to a retrospective features 170 works from all phases of Moholy-Nagy's career. Essays on his involvement with the Bauhaus School; his late paintings; his photographs, photograms, and photosculptures; and his accomplishments in the field of graphic art are complemented by numerous color illustrations. The book also documents the reconstruction of a never completed work, The Room of Today, which incorporates the most important themes Moholy-Nagy brought to his art. Readers viewing his work for the first time, along with those already possessing a deep appreciation for his art, will celebrate this long-overdue volume."
The naked truth : Klimt, Schiele, Kokoschka and other scandals by Tobias G Natter( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Centrada en el tema del espacio público y la desnudez, la muestra presenta obras de Klimt, Schiele, Kokoschka y otros artistas de la Viena de fines del siglo XIX, que en su día chocaron con las concepciones morales y estéticas de una sociedad muy conservadora, traspasando los límites establecidos acerca de lo que puede ser exhibido públicamente, y contribuyendo a la emancipación del desnudo
James Ensor by James Ensor( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Belgian painter James Ensor (1860-1949) created a body of work that is comical, ironic and profound, which can be interpreted in many ways.' To a large degree his work is self-referential, both foreshadowing and reflecting back upon itself and containing many simultaneous strands of development and parallel phenomena." "Ensor's unusual motifs, which became distinctive symbols for the absurdity of life, have fascinated and influenced other artists from all other periods since then in view of new tendencies in contemporary art such as the manifestation of the grotesque and comic, Ensor's work is yet again current. Featuring almost 80 masterpieces on canvas and over no works on paper-both drawings and prints - this monograph presents key works from all periods of his career. Special focus is given to the artist's later works, which have long been neglected by art historians."--Jacket

Op Art : Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt by Martina Weinhart( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thus art is not an object, but an experience." This volume collects the work of a generation of international "op artists" who were fascinated by the physical laws of light and optics, visual phenomena and the principles of perception. Op art, also known as optical art, is a style of visual art that makes use of optical illusions. "Optical art is a method of painting concerning the interaction between illusion and picture plane, between understanding and seeing." Op art works are abstract, with many of the better known pieces made in only black and white. When the viewer looks at them, the impression is given of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibration, patterns, or alternatively, of swelling or warping
Sturm-Frauen : Künstlerinnen der Avantgarde in Berlin 1910-1932 = Storm women : women artists of the Avant-Garde in Berlin 1910-1932 by Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in German and English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DER STURM signalled the awakening in modern art. Founded as a journal for the promotion of Expressionist art by Herwarth Walden in 1910, the name quickly became the trademark of a complete movement. Lesser known is that Walden also showcased numerous female artists. It is to them that the current publication is dedicated, which with nearly 300 artworks gathers together female proponents of, among others, Expressionism, Cubism, and New Objectivity: The art trends of the early twentieth century from a female perspective. 00Exhibition: Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt am Main, Germany (30.10.2015-07.02.2016)
Esprit Montmartre : Bohemian life in Paris around 1900 by Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt( Book )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Removed from the glamour of Paris during the French Belle Époque, the village-like district of Montmartre offered a bohemian refuge for many poets and artists. Esprit Montmartre explores this rich period of artistic production, its sociopolitical contexts and how they continue to influence the image of the artist and his subjects today"--Provided by publisher
Die Visionen des Arnold Schönberg : Jahre der Malerei by Arnold Schoenberg( Book )

Courbet : a dream of modern art by Gustave Courbet( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The intertwined stories of Realism and modernism begin with the great innovations of Gustave Courbet (1819-1877). Realism sought to record the messiness, poverty and brute facts of everyday life in urban and rural France, against the restrictions of religion and class and the high-flown emotion of the Romantic painters. Courbet's "Burial at Ornans" is a classic instance of Courbet's stance: it depicts a funeral in rural Ornans, and uses the occasion's actual participants, instead of models, portraying them entirely without sentiment, and on a scale usually reserved for royal subjects. But in his portraits, landscapes, drawings and still lifes, Courbet frequently suggested a more meditative, inward-looking realm, somewhat removed from his declarations of social realities, and revealed in such works his virtuoso touch and formal brilliance. Gustave Courbet: A Dream of Modern Art introduces this "other" Courbet, the painter whose vision of nature and formal preoccupations were later inherited by Cezanne and Picasso, and further built on by the Symbolists and Surrealists. With over 200 color reproductions of the French Realist's work, as well as essays by Sylvain Amic and Bettina Erche, this volume acts as a welcome counterweight to the Courbet we thought we already knew, further complicating and enriching our understanding of one of the most influential European painters any century has produced

Museum im Widerspruch : das Städel und der Nationalsozialismus( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Städel Museum in Frankfurt am Main gilt als einer der Vorreiter der Provenienzforschung an deutschen Museen und hat in der jüngsten Vergangenheit mehrfach Gemälde an ihre rechtmäßigen Eigentümer restituiert. Die international geführten Diskussionen zur Restitution von Kunstwerken drehen sich dabei immer wieder auch um ethische Fragen sowie um die Verantwortung der Protagonisten und führen die Notwendigkeit vor Augen, einzelne Aspekte musealer Arbeit im "Dritten Reich" nicht isoliert, sondern in ihrem politischen wie kunsthistorischen Kontext vom Kaiserreich bis in die Nachkriegszeit zu betrachten. Der für die vorliegende Publikation gewählte Titel Museum im Widerspruch fängt die durchaus ambivalenten Erkenntnisse der für die Frankfurter Situation in Kooperation der Forschungsstelle "Entartete Kunst" mit dem Städel durchgeführten Untersuchungen wie in einem Brennspiegel ein. In der Tat standen die Direktoren und Kuratoren des Städelsches Kunstinstituts und der Städtischen Galerie im "Dritten Reich" oft genug im Widerspruch zu einer kunsthistorisch-wissenschaftlichen Selbstverpflichtung, die gerade im Bereich des Museums als öffentlicher Einrichtung auf moralische wie juristische Rechtmäßigkeit, auf einen sorgsamen Umgang mit Mäzenen, Sammlern und Publikum, mit den Kunstwerken, ihrer Präsentation und ihrem Erhalt abzielen muss. Der Band fragt einerseits danach, inwiefern die Notlage jüdischer Sammler ausgenutzt wurde und die Situation im besetzten im Ausland zum unrechtmäßigen Erwerb von Kunstwerken führte. Andererseits standen einige Entscheidungen und Maßnahmen der Direktion und Mitarbeiter des Städel auch im deutlichen Widerspruch zur nationalsozialistischen Doktrin. Schließlich wird auch der Frage nach den Restitutionsvorgängen in der Nachkriegszeit sowie nach einer Neuordnung des Museums in diesen Jahren nachgegangen. Die nun veröffentlichten Forschungsergebnisse über die Geschichte des Städel im "Dritten Reich" weisen weit über den Frankfurter Wirkungskreis hinaus und tragen grundlegend zur Aufarbeitung nationalsozialistischer Kunst- und Kulturpolitik bei
