Vasily Kandinsky : a colorful life : the collection of the Lenbachhaus, Munich by Vivian Endicott Barnett( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Russia, Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was one of the most original and influential artists to emerge in the twentieth century. He is known primarily for his daring use of color in startling non-objective works. Vasily Kandinsky: A Colorful Life is the most comprehensive and fully illustrated account to date of his early work, from 1900 to 1914, the period in which he made his radical shift to abstraction - and in so doing altered the very concept of art itself. The works presented here are from the collection of the city museum of Munich, or Stadtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus. They were given to the Galerie in 1957 by the artist Gabriele Munter, who was Kandinsky's companion from 1903 to the beginning of World War I. They are being shown at the Galerie in their entirety for the first time in a major exhibition, for which this book serves as the catalogue. In compelling, readable text that draws on the latest research, noted Kandinsky expert Vivian Endicott Barnett illuminates the life and work of the artist. She begins with sketches made during his student years in Munich and considers also his interest in folk art, myths and fairy tales, the small oil studies from nature, medieval scenes, woodcuts, glass paintings and landscapes he made before progressing to the first abstractions. Included as well are the important paintings from the series of Improvisations, Impressions, and Compositions, which are among the highlights of his involvement with the Blue Rider group, and later works from his Bauhaus and Paris years. This sumptuous book includes more than 700 examples of Kandinsky's early genius, most of them brilliantly reproduced in full color. The works are organized chronologically, and paintings are accompanied, when relevant, by preliminary sketches and prints."--Jacket

Hans Hofmann by Helmut Friedel( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hans Hofmann (1880-1966) is one of the most important figures of postwar American art, for both his own abstract paintings and his influence as the legendary teacher of generations of artists in Germany, New York, and Provincetown. His presence in New York, a link to Wassily Kandinsky, the Cubists, and Fauves, catalyzed the movement ultimately known as Abstract Expressionism, whose influence still pervades the aesthetic categories and practices of art today

Gerhard Richter : Red/Yellow/Blue : the BMW paintings by Helmut Friedel( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mondrian, De Stijl by Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus München( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in German and Multiple languages and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the exception of the Bauhaus, probably no other art movement of the first half of the twentieth century has had such an influence on our everyday lives as the De Stijl group around Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg. Mondrian, along with Wassily Kandinsky and Kasimir Malevich one of abstract painting's founding fathers, created strictly geometrical paintings that today are icons of modernism. Their characteristic structure - a black frame with fields of primary colours and white - has long assumed a life of its own in art and fashion, advertising and popular culture. One focus of the publication ... is Mondrian's development towards abstraction - from his early works in the circle of the neo-impressionist luminists to his neoplasticistic period. A second focus is De Stijl's interdisciplinary approach, which will be shown with historical furniture, clothes, architectural drawings and models."--Book jacket

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Active in Germany in the years leading up to World War I, the Blue Rider was a collective of artists, cofounded by Wassily Kandinsky, that was a key influence on Expressionism. This volume offers a highly illustrated tour through the large collection of watercolors, drawings, and prints from the group that are held by the Lenbachhaus Munich. It offers more than 230 full-color reproductions, many of which appear here for the first time in book form, and accompanying essays situate the work and the group in the context of the artistic world of their time. A brilliant tour of the output of a group whose innovative career was tragically cut short by war, The Blue Rider will be treasured by all fans of German art."--Publisher description

Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) hat mit seinem bilderstürmerischen Werk die Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts und unsere Vorstellung von ihr radikal verändert. München spielte dabei eine nicht ganz unwichtige Rolle. Verärgert über die Ablehnung seines Gemäldes Akt, eine Treppe herabsteigend Nr. 2 im Salon des Indépendants verlässt Duchamp Paris und fährt Ende Juni 1912 nach München. Er will einen guten Freund besuchen, den Maler Max Bergmann, den er in Paris kennengelernt hatte. Bald beschließt er, länger zu bleiben, und mietet sich in einem Zimmer in der Barerstraße ein. Am Ende bleibt er drei Monate und entwickelt mehrere bedeutende Arbeiten, die heute u.a. im Museum of Modern Art in New York zu sehen sind, wie etwa das Gemälde Von der Jungfrau zur Braut.0Exhibition: Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Munich, Germany (31.3.-15.7.2012)
