Modern art in Eastern Europe : from the Baltic to the Balkans, ca. 1890-1939 by Steven A Mansbach( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, S.A. Mansbach provides us with the first coherent narrative of the modern-art movements of Eastern Europe. Analyzing a vast range of works, many published here for the first time, the author argues that our understanding of modernism is incomplete without consideration of this material. He shows how cubism, expressionism, and constructivism, among other modernist styles, were amalgamated with deeply rooted visual traditions in several vital centers - including Prague, Warsaw, and Budapest - in order to express the most pressing concerns of the day, particularly nationalism. Mansbach also considers the critical response of the eastern European art public to these various avant-garde movements. A revisionist interpretation of modernism, Modern Art in Eastern Europe provides a much-needed reassessment of the art of this century, as well as of its historiography."--Jacket

Advancing a different modernism by Steven A Mansbach( )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Advancing a Different Modernism analyzes a long-ignored but formative aspect of modern architecture and art. By examining selective buildings by the Catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner (1849-1923) and by the Slovenian architect, planner, and designer Jože Plecnik (1872-1957), the book reveals the fundamental political and ideological conservatism that helped shape modernism's history and purpose. This study thus revises the dominant view of modernism as a union of progressive forms and progressive politics. Instead, this innovative volume promotes a nuanced and critical consideration of how architecture was creatively employed to advance radically new forms and methods, while simultaneously consolidating an essentially conservative nationalist self-image."

Bulgarien im Bild : die Erfindung von Nationen auf dem Balkan in der Kunst des 19. Jahrhunderts by Martina Baleva( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die populärsten Nationalbilder der Länder auf dem Balkan wurden im 19. Jahrhundert durch ausländische Künstler geschaffen. Bislang wurde diese Schlüsselrolle fremder visueller Medien und ihrer Urheber für die Konstruktion nationaler Selbstbilder in der kulturgeschichtlichen Forschung kaum thematisiert. Dies gilt auch für das Bild Bulgariens. Die Studie analysiert am Beispiel des 1878 gegründeten Nationalstaats die intervisuellen Austauschprozesse zwischen dem westlichen Europa und dem Balkan sowie die intermedialen Kontexte der illustrierten Presse, der Historien- bzw. Ereignismalerei sowie der Fotografie als die herausragenden Medien in diesem Prozess

Russell Maltz by Russell Maltz( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ob Baustellen, Parkplätze oder ein barockes Stadtpalais wie in Saarbrücken ? der Kunst des New Yorkers Russell Maltz könnte man überall begegnen. Es ist eine Malerei ohne Leinwand, ohne Grenzen, als Intervention im (Außen-)Raum. Durch die spannungsreiche Verbindung von Malerei und Skulptur gelingt es Maltz, poetische Akzente zu setzen, die gerade durch die Reduktion auf Grundformen und den gezielten Einsatz von Tagesleuchtfarben ihre besondere Wirkung entfalten. Anlässlich der Saarbrücker Ausstellung erscheint erstmals ein umfangreicher Werkkatalog, der mehrere Jahrzehnte umspannt, von den architekturbezogenen Malerei-Installationen der späten 1960er Jahre bis hin zu den Neon-Assemblagen der jüngsten Zeit. Exhibition: Stadtgalerie Saarbrücken, Germany (19.05.?27.08.2017)
