Regardless of the clichés associated with Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Max Beckmann (1884-1950), and Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) in the "public" private sphere, their exploration of the theme "woman" go far beyond one-sided definitions. Their portrayals of women are highly nuanced; they have a significance of their own and time and again become sensitive reflections of social and political problems and upheavals. They are not simply surfaces upon which are projected male longings and desires, but catalysts for a confrontation with the artist's own life and history (Picasso), while in Beckmann's work they are completely free, independent counter-images. De Kooning sees them as a separate force within which culminate opportunities for artistic expression. Contributions by art historians, authors, sociologists, and artists approach the theme from a variety of perspectives. Exhibition: Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany (30.3.-15.6.2012)

Faust : der Tragödie zweiter Teil by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

23 editions published between 1957 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dette er en ny gjendiktning av første del av Goethes store verk. Dramaet begynner med et veddemål mellom Gud og djevelen Mefisto om Faust. Djevelen vil legge verden for Fausts føtter, men til gjengjeld skal han få hans sjel dersom det Mefisto kan gi, blir nok til å tilfredsstille ham. Så fortsetter det med en vill jakt på opplevelser: til fjollete studenter i Leipzig, til heksekjøkkenets magi, til den unge Gretchen som Faust forelsker seg stormende i. Fordi det er Mefisto som har ført ham sammen med Gretchen, kan Faust ikke leve opp til sine følelser. 252 s., ib., 1993

Max Beckmann : self-portrait with horn by Jill Lloyd( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In August of 2008, The New York Times' Ken Johnson wrote, "Max Beckmann's 'Self-Portrait with Horn' is one of the finest treasures of the Neue Galerie ... Painted in brusque, brushy strokes in high-contrast darks and lights, it depicts the artist in a black-and-orange striped dressing gown holding up a silver hunter's horn in one sausage-fingered hand. He looks sideways with an intent expression as though he had sounded a note and was awaiting an answering response. Or he may be listening for the hounds of war." Beckmann painted "Self-Portrait with Horn" in 1938, just after he and his wife fled Nazi Germany to seek refuge in Amsterdam, and it evokes the tribulations of an entire generation. This volume celebrates this painting and the special place it holds for the Neue Galerie. Art historian Jill Lloyd brings her superb scholarship to bear in tracing the work's history and its importance within the Beckmann oeuvre."--Jacket

Vorliegend wird erstmalig die Bedeutung Berlins für die Kunst Max Beckmanns thematisiert. Beckmann profilierte sich als junger Künstler vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg von 1904 bis 1914 in Berlin und lebte noch einmal von 1933 bis 1937 nach der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten bis zu seiner Emigration nach Amsterdam in der Stadt. Aber auch in seinen Frankfurter Jahren, von 1915 bis 1933, reiste er oft in die Stadt und prägte die Kunstszene Berlins entscheidend mit. Der Katalog spiegelt den Stand der Beckmann-Forschung zum Thema wider und versammelt Werke des Künstlers, die in Berlin entstanden, die inhaltlich mit der Stadt verknüpft sind oder die in großen Ausstellungen in Berlin vertreten waren. „Erstmals widmet sich die Berlinische Galerie mit „Max Beckmann in Berlin“ einem Thema, das bisher im Kanon der vielen Beckmann-Ausstellungen ein Desiderat war... Der Katalog lotet – begleitet von ganzseitigen Abbildungen – die vielfältigen Beziehungen Beckmanns zu Berlin aus. Nach einer Einführung von Stefanie Heckmann, „Beckmann ist Berliner“, werden in fünf Kapiteln mit der Darstellung von Leben und Schaffen des Malers, der Interpretation seiner Werke und Werkkomplexe neue Aspekte der Kunstgeschichte der ersten vier Jahrzehnte des vergangenen Jahrhunderts eingebracht“ (literaturkritik.de)
