Generosity--the art of giving : white rabbit : the companion by Národní galerie v Praze( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book was published to commemorate the 220th anniversary of the Society of Patriotic Friends of the Arts, the forerunner of the National Gallery in Prague. This collection of essays is a sort of autobiography of the National Gallery in Prague, whose existence is partly based on the generous acts of giving and sharing. The essays pay homage to its founding fathers, individual donors and institutions, artists and collectors, who contributed unconditional gifts or temporary loans to its collections, made art exchanges or were beneficial in various other ways both to the Gallery{u2019}s collections (ranging from the Old Masters, graphic art and drawings, and the arts of Asia and Africa, to 19th-century art and contemporary and modern art, including architecture). The book also includes treatises devoted to the history of art collecting and the formative role of generosity and magnanimity in the process of establishing art-collecting institutions. This comprehensive picture is further enhanced by excerpts from philosophy texts, literary works and poetry books that place the issue of generosity into a broader ideological context

Katharina Grosse : Wunderbild by Katharina Grosse( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in Czech and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

German artist Katharina Grosse (born 1961) paints monumental tableaux of desire that can be perceived as a sublime act of lovers' embrace towards the space, an architecture, and the viewer. For the National Gallery in Prague, Grosse elaborates a large-scale, site-specific painterly installation which radically redefines painting as a performative and architectural medium and responds to the Gallery's industrial space of the late 20s functionalist style. Her "Wunderbild" is an architectural painting, a spatial image which the viewer inhabits with his/her body and mind. The color gains a volume; the flat surface turns sculptural; the pictorial field crosses the limits of the visual. Epic in scale, the immersive installation, composed of overlapping pieces of fabric covered by thick layers of sprayed paint, reminds us of both a medieval mural and a womb-like cave of a pre-ancient drawing, a post-theatrical chamber of a hyper-technisized, intoxicating environment. The painting takes over the site; Grosse's gesture is an art of becoming a space. "I'm a painter--I'm interested in the space generated by the painted image and how it can appear in any kind of existing field, be it architecture or the mundane situations of everyday life. For me, painting isn't restricted to a canvas or a wall." According to Grosse, the painting is an unconstrained act of freedom. "Wunderbild" is an outburst of pictorial generosity. Registering a gestural moment of the image's appearance, it perceives painting as a processual practice of an extreme resilience and flux, a life itself, a mental and physical preoccupation. The book is illustrated by numerous making-of photos that shed light on the artist's way of working, and provides an in-depth analysis of "Wunderbild"
