Gabriele Münter : the years of expressionism, 1903-1920 by Reinhold Heller( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and German and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Gabriele Munter (1877-1962) shines like a jewel in the male-dominated avant-garde Expressionist movement. Most accounts of the frenetically creative years in Munich and Murnau fail to recognize the uniqueness of Munter's vision: her work is unjustly eclipsed by that of her colleagues, not least Vassily Kandinsky's. This book redresses the balance. Some one hundred of the artist's most seminal works are reproduced in this lavishly illustrated volume; they include several from private collections that have never before been published. Gabriele Munter: The Years of Expressionism, 1903-1920 is an exploration of Munter's crucial contribution to German Expressionism in the genres of landscape, portrait and still-life painting. Her place and significance in the development of this movement are critically examined, with particular attention paid to the iconography of her paintings and the lyrical strength of her work

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brücke : German expressionist prints from the Granvil and Marcia Specks collection by Reinhold Heller( Book )

8 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, published in conjunction with the Milwaukee Museum of Art's Granvil and Marcia Specks collection, presents a collection of the Museum's German Expressionist prints. German Expressionism refers to a creative movement beginning in Germany before the First World War that reached a peak in Berlin, during the 1920s. The author has included a body of imagery that reveals the myriad concerns of the age -- the joys and the pain of life in Germany from the 1890s to the 1930s. The prints of Kathe Kollwitz, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, George Grosz and Lionel Feininger are only a few of the wide range of artists whose work reflected the fragile years from the Second Empire to the rise of the Nazis. This work showcases etchings and drypoints of biting spontaneity and intensity, lithographs of corrosive ingenuity, and woodcuts to stir the soul heralded an era of individuality and democracy
Brücke : the birth of Expressionism in Dresden and Berlin, 1905-1913 by Reinhold Heller( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A representative volume featuring the masterpieces by Die Brücke, whose bold, expressive art heralded the birth of Expressionism in Germany. The Brücke group was founded in 1905 by four students in Dresden: Fritz Bleyl, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. The name Brücke, which means "bridge" in German, was chosen to represent their intention of linking the art of the past with that of the future. Drawing on diverse sources, ranging from medieval woodcuts to African and Oceanic art, they fused these influences into a highly distinctive style. Living and working communally, the Brücke artists shared a fervent faith in a utopian future. Through their art, they sought to restore a sense of value and unity in a fragmenting world. With their emphasis on vivid color and emotional directness, these artists gave birth to German Expressionism. Accompanying an exhibition at the Neue Galerie in New York, this publication examines the Brücke through its various manifestations: vivid renderings of rural life; candid studio portraits; and searing, critical depictions of the rapidly changing urban milieu. It demonstrates how this group of young firebrands invigorated and altered the art of their time."-- Publisher description
The German print portfolio, 1890-1930 : serials for a private sphere by Robin Reisenfeld( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite its importance among Symbolist, Naturalist, Expressionist, and New-Objectivity printmakers in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Germany and Austria, the print portfolio as an art form has never been examined comprehensively in an English-language publication. Its seminal role in defining a new audience for German and Austrian art beginning in the 1890s; its status as a hedge against the rising economic and political turmoil of the 1920s; its value as a reflection of personal and public, economic, social and political concerns; and even its roots in high and low culture make the investigation of this unique graphic format both necessary and exciting. The German Print Portfolio 1890-1930: Serials for a Private Sphere examines the central role played by the portfolio in German and Austrian graphics through the rich examples in the collection of the David and Alfred Smart Museum of Art and the Marcia and Granvil Specks Collection. Two Naturalist series by Lovis Corinth, Expressionist examples by artists of Brücke as well as by Ernst Barlach, Max Beckmann, and Oskar Kokoschka, and New-Objectivity and Realist works by Otto Dix, George Grosz, and the Berlin social critic Rafaello Busoni document the diverse stylistic paths this new trend followed. From Klinger's Eine Liebe (A Love) to Barlach's Schiller, An die Freude (Schiller, Ode to Joy) and again to Kokoschka's Der gefesselte Kolumbus (Columbus Chained), the group of portfolios represents a wide range of print techniques. In addition to a discussion of media and artistic choice, the essays examine the uses and themes of portfolios, from direct political, social, or economic commentary to literary, and even musical allusions."--Publisher description
