Egon Schiele lived in Vienna during its last years as capital of the declining Habsburg Empire. Rejected by his family and hounded by society for his interest in young girls, he expressed through his art a deep and bewildering loneliness and an obsession with sexuality, death, and decay. Schiele was only twenty-eight when he died, yet he left behind him a body of work that sustains a huge public reputation - and a myth. This book sets out to examine both

Kandinsky : watercolours and other works on paper by Frank Whitford( Book )

17 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944) is one of the most important and influential painters of the twentieth century, and was one of the first Western artists to create pictures without figurative motifs, consisting exclusively of colours and forms selected and arranged for their own sake. He was also the first 'abstract' painter (although he generally avoided the term) to explain and justify what he was doing. His theoretical writings, including Concerning the Spiritual in Art (1912) and Point and Line to Plane (1926), both classics of their kind, are among the most significant texts written by any artist this century." "In this catalogue of the first major showing of Kandinsky's work for some years, over 130 works on paper are reproduced in full colour and shown in the context of Kandinsky's oeuvre as a whole. In his introductory essay, Frank Whitford traces Kandinsky's entire artistic career, placing it in the context of his life in Russia, Germany and France and highlighting the importance of watercolours in particular."--Jacket

The Berlin of George Grosz : drawings, watercolours, and prints 1912-1930 by George Grosz( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No artist's work gives off the acrid whiff of Berlin during the 1920s as unmistakably as the paintings, drawings and prints of George Grosz (1893-1959). They teem with the characters who gave the capital of the Weimar Republic its by turns dangerously seductive and repulsive face: the prostitutes and pimps, the beggars and black marketers, the scheming politicians, vengeful military and judiciary, the dissatisfied workers and self-important bourgeoisie. In Grosz's work we can follow, through at first politically committed but then increasingly disillusioned eyes, the course of Germany from defeat in the First World War through economic and political crisis to the rise and triumph of Fascism. Given Grosz's stature and the still-growing interest in modern German art, it is extraordinary that the exhibition at the Royal Academy will be the first in Britain since 1962. It will include about 150 of his finest works on paper and will show a number of major works never previously seen. The catalogue will also provide information, unfamiliar to a non-German audience, about a fascinating and complex artist: several of Grosz's key theoretical essays and most of his revealing letters have never been translated into English
