Käthe Kollwitz by Elizabeth Prelinger( Book )

28 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few artists are as universally beloved as the German printmaker, draftsman, and sculptor Kathe Kollwitz, whose powerful images of mothers and children and of protest against social injustice have long been admired by both critics and the public. Kollwitz, a woman in a field dominated by men, steadfastly adhered to a figurative style in the era of abstraction and depicted socially engaged subject matter when it was unfashionable. Kollwitz is largely known through political posters and restrikes of her prints. Her reputation has to some extent been dominated by an emphasis on the social content of her work, often at the expense of her remarkable artistic skills. The present study challenges that view by focusing on the artistic aspect of her achievement. The book consists of three essays on Kollwitz. Elizabeth Prelinger provides a reassessment of Kollwitz as an artist; Alessandra Comini presents a richly atmospheric discussion of the artist's life in Berlin during the tumultuous period that spanned two world wars; and Hildegard Bachert surveys the reception of Kollwitz in Germany and the United States as manifested in collections of her works. The volume, which includes a selection of the finest examples of Kollwitz' oeuvre, juxtaposes preparatory drawings with finished art, illustrating the arduous experimental processes by which she attained her brilliant results. Themes important to Kollwitz--such as self-portraits, social activism as illustrated in the cycles A Weavers' Rebellion and Peasants' War, love and death, nudes, workers, war and revolution--are explored in depth in all media. The book will serve as the catalogue for an exhibition of Kollwitz' prints, drawings, and works of sculpture at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, from May 3 to August 26, 1992

After The scream : the late paintings of Edvard Munch by Elizabeth Prelinger( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Expressing the anxieties of the late nineteenth century and the uncertainties of the modern world, Edvard Munch (1862-1944) often depicted in his works dangerously seductive fin de siecle women, sickly figures, and isolated characters in barren landscapes. These powerful, haunting paintings are widely recognized and revered, especially his iconic work The Scream (1893). Yet few admirers of Munch's early works realize that the artist lived well into the twentieth century and was enormously productive almost to the time of his death. This compelling book, focusing on more than sixty of Munch's later paintings, reveals the surprising, vibrant work of a fascinating man who never ceased to grow as an artist. Following decades of restless wandering among the capitals of Europe, Munch suffered a breakdown in Copenhagen in 1908 and retreated to his native Norway. In 1916 he purchased an estate near present-day Oslo where he lived and worked, mostly in his outdoor studio, for the next twenty years. Although Munch never abandoned a deeply introspective approach to image-making, in his later works he expressed a new attachment to the visible world, adopting a fresh range of subjects and a looser, brighter painting style. The pictures of this period -- full of vivid color, evocative atmospheres, and visual drama -- are a revelation, casting new light on one of the most complex artists of the modern era

American impressionism : treasures from the Smithsonian American Art Museum by Smithsonian American Art Museum( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents outstanding works by turn-of-the-century painters who often worked outdoors to capture brilliant effects of light and color. A generation of artists such as Childe Hassam, John Twachtman, Thomas and Maria Oakey Dewing, and William Merritt Chase studied abroad and absorbed advanced ideas that were revolutionizing painting in France. Landscapes, domestic scenes, and elegant figure compositions by Theodore Robinson, Mary Cassatt, and Robert Reid show the freedom and sparkling qualities of the new impressionist style. Early in the twentieth century, Maurice Prendergast and Daniel Garber took impressionism in new, more modern directions.--From publisher description

Paul Gauguin : the prints by Tobia Bezzola( Book )

15 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rarely seen works collected in this volume comprise nearly the entire print output of Paul Gauguin. Universally revered as one of the founding fathers of modern painting, Paul Gauguin was also an accomplished printer. Working mostly in woodcuts, he translated his fascination with life in the South Seas into pieces of extraordinary beauty and simplicity. This volume presents the three print series that Gauguin created: a dozen zinc etchings made in 1889; his most famous series, the partially hand-tinted woodcuts created for his famed book Noa Noa, which were made after Gauguin's first trip to Tahiti; and a third series of woodcuts completed during his second stay on the island. This small printed oeuvre demonstrates how the medium was an ideal outlet for Gauguin's experimental and audacious artistry. 0Exhibition: Kunsthaus Zürich, Switzerland
