Max Ernst : a retrospective by Max Ernst( Book )

14 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max Ernst (1891-1976) is one of the few incontrovertibly great artists of the twentieth century. This book provides a unique opportunity of assessing Max Ernst's achievement. The extensive plate section includes works in all medias and genres -- painting, sculpture, works on paper, book illustration -- and from all periods of the artist's career. In his introductory essay, Werner Spies reviews the artist's oeuvre, pointing to certain basic attitudes and procedures that informed all his work. Essays by other well-known scholars discuss the symbolism of his Surrealist imagery, the influence of Romanticism and of the North American Indians on his work, and his ties with England. Max Ernst's own 'Biographical Note', lavishly illustrated with documentary photographs and further examples of his work, and interspersed with other writings by the artist, provide profound and fascinating insights into his life and art. "Max Ernst: A Retrospective" is an indispensable volume on the life and art of one of hte few truly international artists of the twentieth century. -- From publisher's description
Franz Marc, horses by Franz Marc( Book )

24 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The German painter Franz Marc pursued the representation of the horse - a theme central to the fine arts - throughout his life. Co-founder, with Wassily Kandinsky, of the almanac Der Blaue Reiter [The Blue Rider], Marc was a champion of innovation in art. In his own work he achieved symbolic, visionary images now recognized as among the icons of early Modernism." "This publication offers an overview of Marc's paintings, drawings, and other works on paper, and a number of his painted postcards. Beginning with the studies made after nature in 1905-06, it embraces the series of colored horses painted after Marc's move from Munich to the Upper Bavarian village of Sindelsdorf in 1910, and ends with sketches produced shortly before Marc's death in 1916 as a soldier serving on the Western Front."--Jacket
Vom Klang der Bilder : die Musik in der Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts by Karin von Maur( Book )

27 editions published in 1985 in 3 languages and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sound of painting by Karin von Maur( Book )

16 editions published in 1999 in 3 languages and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painters and musicians have always found inspiration by sharing ideas from both disciplines. How this relationship developed from Philipp Otto Runge's "compositions" in painting to Jean Tinguely's and Niki de Saint Phalle's musical sculptures is the focus of this illustrated volume. Carefully selected images and quotations from composers and artists are blended into a study useful to scholars of art history and music, and fascinating to the general reader."--Jacket

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yves Tanguy and surrealism by Karin von Maur( Book )

16 editions published in 2001 in 3 languages and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ur-Surrealist Yves Tanguy belonged to the inner circle of the 1920s Parisian avant-garde, alongside such figures as Salvador Dal', Max Ernst, and Alberto Giacometti, making essential contributions to Surrealist manifestoes, magazines, and exhibitions. Tanguy's artistic obsession was the world of imagination, of dreams and reveries, and his cryptically codified imagery continues to perplex audiences today. His paintings seem to exist in a hazy, oddly beautiful limbo dimension beyond time and space, a world at once vertiginous and calm, disturbing and breathtaking. The central focus of Yves Tanguy and Surrealism is the Surrealist mode, to which Tanguy dedicated himself like no other painter of his time, cementing the movement's place in the history of visual art. On the basis of previously unpublished documents and works, authors discuss Tanguy's otherworldly oeuvre in all its aspects--from his development as an artist to the reception of his work in the United States. With stunning reproductions in full color as well as black and white, Yves Tanguy and Surrealism is an extensive overview of the work of an artist whose forays into the creative unknown continue to resonate
