Giovanni Bellini by Oskar Bätschmann( Book )

Identified by Albrecht Dürer in the sixteenth century as Venice's foremost painter, and hailed in the nineteenth by Jacob Burckhardt as the 'savior' of Venetian painting, Giovanni Bellini is a pivotal figure in the development of Italian Renaissance art. In this lavishly illustrated book renowned art historian Oskar Bätschmann charts the fraught trajectory of Bellini's career, highlighting the crucial works that established his far-reaching influence in the Renaissance. Bellini struggle to break free from the long shadows cast both by his father, Jacopo, and by Bellini's brother-in-law, Andrea Mantegna, and Bätschmann traces out Bellini's development of distinct aesthetic and painting techniques that enabled him to set himself apart. Bellini also insisted on choosing his own subjects and themes regardless of the preferences of his patron Isabella d'Este, and he thus set new standards regarding the independent role of the artist. Anchoring Bätschmann's analysis are a wealth of reproductions that include such famous works as The Feast of the Gods, the various Virgin and Child compositions and Bellini's lauded altarpieces made for the churches of SS. Giovanni e Paolo, S. Giobbe and S. Zaccaria. Drawing on these masterpieces, Bätschmann argues that Bellini's artistry and skillful blending of colors created a new aesthetic more akin to music than to previous approaches to painting. And by leading viewers to understand this subtle, refined sensibility, Bellini made them into more knowledgeable admirers of art

Egon Schiele, Jenny Saville by Oliver Wick( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painter Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) produced his main body of work within the space of ten years. His famous nudes probed unwaveringly the existential core of human experience. This paintings of Jenny Saville are no less intensely physical and confrontational than Schiele's. This catalogue brings together the works of these two artists for the first time, revealing stylistic and thematic affinities in their body-landscapes and portraits - despite the decades separating their work and the difference in their brushwork. The paintings and drawings of both artists lend the body an insistent corporeality. In Schiele's usually small-format self-portraits, the pose, the accentuated view from below and gestural style give the images an impact equal to the forceful punch of Saville's giant forms."

The hidden Cézanne : from sketchbook to canvas by Anita Haldemann( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the founding artists of modern art, Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) is now widely acclaimed as the preeminent painter of the late nineteenth century. Less well known is his groundbreaking work as a draftsman; relatively little scholarship has been devoted to this aspect of his oeuvre, which is rarely presented in exhibitions. The Kunstmuseum Basel's Kupferstichkabinett (Department of Prints and Drawings) contains 154 sheets by Cézanne, making it the most comprehensive and significant collection of the artist's drawings in the world. The collection dates back to the 1930s, attesting to the museum's farsighted collection policy. Two thirds of these drawings come from dissolved sketchbooks, which were reconstructed in view of this presentation. The starting point and nucleus of Cézanne's creative thinking, they allow us to observe Cézanne's everyday practice as a draftsman up close. Early scenes of violence appear side by side with portrait sketches; copies after Delacroix or ancient sculptures alternate with landscapes and bathers. Repetition and slight variation of the angle from which he studied a motif enabled the artist to understand how perceptions formed and to develop entirely new pictorial registers. In his watercolors, Cézanne explored the dynamic interplay between line and color, casting off the constraints of the tradition. In his paintings, too, the line is vital. He often produced a preparatory drawing on the canvas and reworked it with the brush before executing the picture in paint. This book offers fascinating insights into this outstanding painter's creative process. Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Basel - Neubau, Switzerland (10.06.-24.09.2017)
