Alfred Kubin : drawings 1897-1909 by Alfred Kubin( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfred Kubin (1877-1959) created drawings that plumb the depths of the shadow world of the human subconscious, with its unguarded impulses and fears. Though a contemporary and fellow countryman of artist Gustav Klimt and designer Josef Hoffmann, Kubin eschewed the decorative impulses found in their work. Instead, inspired by the art of Francisco Goya, Felicien Rops, Max Klinger, James Ensor, and Edvard Munch, he produced dark, hallucinatory visions of violence and eroticism." "This publication accompanies the exhibition Alfred Kubin - Drawings 1897-1909, Much features more than 100 works on paper by the artist. On view at the Neue Galerie from September 25, 2008, through January 26, 2009, this is the first major Kubin exhibition ever held in the United States, and it focuses on his early, often nightmarish drawings, watercolors, and lithographs. The exhibition is organized by Annegret Hoberg, curator of the Stadtische Galerie in Lenbachhaus, Munich." "Essays examine the artist's early career; his status as a literary figure; and his development of a form of Modernism that ran counter to prevailing trends. The more than 100 illustrations reveal an artist who was able to articulate our darkest nightmares with frightening clarity."--Jacket
Alfred Kubin (1877-1959) : Bilder des Phantastischen by Alfred Kubin( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kubin galt zu Beginn der 1920er Jahre als einer der interessantesten Zeichner seiner Generation mit absolut internationaler Reputation; sein Ruf reichte bereits zu diesem Zeitpunkt weit über den "deutschen Kulturkreis" hinaus. Er konnte auf einen grossen Bekanntenkreis wichtiger Perönlichkeiten und Förderer verweisen, war zugleich aber auch stets mit sehr unterschiedlichen Reaktionen auf seine Kunst konfrontiert. Bis heute ist Alfred Kubin eine intensiv und vielfältig diskutierte Künstlerpersönlichkeit geblieben, deren spezifisches Bemühen um eine "eigentümliche Schönheit" die Kunstwelt immer wieder von Neuem herausfordert, weil es sich konsequent gängigen Zuordnungen und Kategorisierungen entzieht. Gleichsam schubweise erfolgte wiederholt eine intensive Beschäftigung mit seinen zwiespältigen Werken; bis heute erscheint allerdings die Bildwelt des Künstlers immer noch so geheimnisvoll und komplex, dadurch aber auch so faszinierend, wie zu seinen Lebzeiten
