13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "Grandma Moses and her paintings first came to public attention in 1940, when she was 80 years old. Her folk art, down-home personality, and background as a farmer and homemaker charmed the American public. By the time she died at the age of 101, she had completed over 1600 works of art and had established an international reputation. The work of "the white-haired girl," a self-taught artist who was a regular news feature for two decades, remained enormously popular at home and abroad even in the years after her death." "For this reevaluation of the work of Grandma Moses, Jane Kallir contributes an authoritative introduction and presents a catalogue that illustrates 87 of Moses' most important works. Kallir traces Moses' development as an artist from the first embroidered landscapes to the glorious paintings of her "old-age style." The Grandma Moses myth is tackled from various perspectives. Roger Cardinal examines the artist's working methods, exploring the relationship between the actual regional landscape and her interpretation of the area. Michael D. Hall places Moses within the context of contemporary artistic and social movements of the 1940s and 1950s. Lynda Roscoe Hartigan reveals how memory and imagination merge in the paintings. And Judith E. Stein discusses the role of gender in shaping the artist's reputation in the postwar years."

Egon Schiele : drawings and watercolors by Jane Kallir( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and Japanese and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Austrian Expressionist Egon Schiele produced a prolific body of work before his early death at the age of twenty-eight in 1918. The oeuvre is comprised of a few hundred oil paintings and thousands of drawings and watercolors. Schiele's oils have often been reproduced and are well recognized. However, limited access to the fragile works on paper and dispersion among several collections have made for an unbalanced representation of his work as a draftsman. This book assembles drawings and watercolors from public and private collections and reproduces work from every year of the artist's career, beginning with the juvenilia and early academic studies. The focus means that work that is rarely reproduced is represented extensively, providing a unique opportunity to study the rapid artistic development of Schiele over the course of his brief twelve-year career

Egon Schiele : life and work by Jane Kallir( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egon Schiele ranks with Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka among the most influential painters to emerge from the cultural ferment that characterized Vienna at the turn of the century. Yet despite the appreciation of his art, the "real" Egon Schiele has remained elusive - like Vincent Van Gogh and Edvard Munch, precursors of Expressionism with whom he has often been mired in the myth of the tortured artist. His imprisonment on morals charges and his premature death, at the age of twenty-eight in 1918, have tended to dominate accounts of his life." "Jane Kallir, author also of Egon Schiele: The Complete Works (which includes a catalogue raisonne) and Abrams' volume Gustav Klimt, is co-director of the Galerie St. Etienne in New York. She bases her biography chiefly on first-hand sources, many of them previously unpublished. She offers new insights into Schiele's brief and sometimes troubled life: his childhood and early adulthood, his turbulent encounters with Vienna's patron class, his clashes with the Establishment - the notorious "prison incident" and his military service during World War I, his sexual escapades, and his ultimately disappointing marriage." "Interwoven with the story of the artist's life, Kallir unfolds a balanced presentation of his art - the mature and relatively placid pieces together with the turbulent Expressionist ones. Lavishly illustrated in color and duotone, this volume offers the reader text and pictures of the highest quality."--Jacket
Egon Schiele : the Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky collections by Egon Schiele( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. A superb draftsman and colorist, he produced images of startling emotional power. Following the lead of his mentor Gustav Klimt, Schiele created figurative works of uncanny intimacy and brought a new openness to the art of his time. Schiele's death at the age of 28 has added a mythic quality to his artistic achievements." "This publication accompanies the exhibition Egon Schiele: The Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky Collections, which presents paintings and drawings from the collections of the co-founders of Neue Galerie New York. Together, these collections comprise the finest gathering of works by Schiele in the United States." "Essays examine the artist's reception history in American and Austria, the censorship of his art during and after his lifetime, and the lost Schiele collections. This publication also traces, for the first time, Schiele's enormous influence on contemporary culture."--Jacket

Egon Schiele : self-portraits and portraits by Egon Schiele( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Egon Schiele (1890-1918) is one of the most important Austrian artists of the twentieth century. This publication, produced to accompany an exhibition in the Belvedere, Vienna, is the first to focus on his portraits and self-portraits. Schiele was influenced by Gustav Klimt during his early career but soon discovered his own mode of expression. By the time of his premature death he had created an impressive oeuvre that concentrates on the depiction of the human figure. In his portraits, Schiele tried to portray his models' state of mind in visual terms, thereby following contemporary developments in psychoanalysis. His numerous self-portraits attest to the fact that the artist embarked on his exploration of human emotions by observing his own personality. Some 100 portraits and self-portraits document Schiele's artistic development and his extraordinary accomplishments as a portraitist. Confrontational and often explicitly erotic, they repeatedly provoked protest by testing the boundaries of traditional portraiture. Largely devoid of props or scenery, they reflect the artist's intensive study of the portrayal of emotional states. Schiele's examination of the self began with his own person: his self-portraits are fascinating glimpses inside the mind of an extraordinarily gifted artist as well as seminal works of originality and deep empathy with the human condition
Egon Schiele's women by Jane Kallir( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this authoritative and lavishly illustrated volume, the renowned Schiele authority Jane Kallir focuses on the artist's images of women, offering fresh insight into a central aspect of Schiele's achievement that has never before been the subject of a focused study. Drawing on the latest scholarship as well as her own exhaustive familiarity with Schiele's oeuvre, Kallir begins with a general overview of gender and culture in early twentieth-century Austria. Subsequent chapters focus on the women who dominated Schiele's life and art: the artist's mother and sisters; his early girlfriends; his first serious partner, Wally Neuzil; and his wife, Edith. Deftly weaving together cultural context, biography, and commentary on the artworks, Kallir reveals how Schiele's women reflect the artist's shifting views of female sexuality as well as changing representations of the female nude in the age of Expressionism"--

Egon Schiele : 27 masterworks by Jane Kallir( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egon Schiele: 27 Masterworks brings together a group of the artist's most significant works, including a cross-section of his major paintings and many of his most beautiful watercolors and drawings. A thorough overview of the oils enables the reader to understand the artist's overriding creative ambitions, but it is in his works on paper that Schiele truly stands out. As evidenced by the numerous oversize and superbly printed reproductions in this book, Schiele deserves to be counted among the foremost draftsmen of all time, ranking alongside Albrecht Durer and Hans Holbein. Egon Schiele: 27 Masterworks follows the entire trajectory of the artist's career, beginning with his early Gustav Klimt-influenced paintings and his startling Expressionist breakthrough in 1910 at the tender age of 20, to his more serene late works, completed shortly before his untimely death at the age of 28."--BOOK JACKET
