Frank O. Gehry : Energie-Forum-Innovation, Bad Oeynhausen by Gottfried Knapp( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in German and English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After his deconstructive beginnings in the eighties and nineties, Frank Gehry increasingly practised a very plastic form of architecture. His expressively sculptural cultural buildings, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, his project for the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and above all the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao (see Opus 32), have shaped the architectural awareness of our period and provided exemplary artistic alternatives to the architectural canon of Modernism."--BOOK JACKET

Das grosse Lachen by Yongbo Zhao( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph is a confirmation of the artist Yongbo Zhao's standing, being one of the most fascinating contemporary artists to have emerged from China. Born in Manchuria in 1964, Zhao's artistic talent was recognised at an early age. Following his first taste of success as a schoolboy and after studying art in the provincial capital, he went on to receive national acclaim in China." "While working as a teacher in his late twenties, he became acquainted with the Western European artistic tradition and succumbed to its fascination. From that time onwards he rejected the Social Realist style that had dominated the art of late twentieth-century China, emigrated to Germany and over a period of four years, occupied himself with the art of the Old Masters and the techniques of their paintings and graphic works." "Only once he had mastered the Classical painterly style and had an immense number of ideas for his pictures did he dare to display his talents to the public once again. He began by paraphrasing his own motifs and those of others, combining them to create provocative and often subversive works. In doing so, he repeatedly confronted the myths and idols of the West with those of China's standardized mass society, radically questioning both sides at the same time."--Jacket
Franz Mayer of Munich = Mayer'sche Hofkunstanstalt : architecture, glass, art by Mayer'sche Hofkunstanstalt GmbH( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Founded in 1847, Franz Mayer of Munich is one of the worlds foremost studios for mosaics and stained glass. Dedicated to the restoration of historic works as well as the execution of contemporary projects for artists and architects worldwide, the family-owned company is widely lauded for its commitment to maintaining the highest standards of quality. Generously illustrated, Franz Mayer of Munich takes readers on a tour of the company's long history, from its genesis as a fine arts manufacturer to the establishment of a stained glass department in 1860 and the period of rapid growth and expansion including the opening of branches in London and New York that followed. In 1925, a mosaic department was added and the company began honing its expertise in these areas, enabling ever more ambitious rebuilds and restorations. In addition to the company's history, essays and photographs provide insight into Franz Mayer of Munich today, documenting projects' development and realization. Works by Franz Mayer of Munich can be seen in public spaces all across the world, but there have been few accessible books about the company. This book fills that gap and will be welcomed by those interested in learning more

Aftermath by Marcus Jansen( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in Multiple languages and English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He is considered the innovator and pioneer of a new urban Expressionism in painting. The nearly 50-year-old New Yorker Marcus Jansen, now living in Fort Myers, already commands high prices in the United States and is making his way into Europe's gallery and museum world. This is a companion volume to the artist's first major European touring exhibition in 2017-2018. Since Neo Rauch's appearance no such powerful artistic expressiveness has blazed a trail between America and Europe as in the work of Marcus Jansen. With this monograph three of Germany's leading art publicists--Manfred Schneckenburger, Gottfried Knapp, and Dieter Ronte--convincingly explain how and why Jansen's post-apocalyptic scenarios so captivate the viewer. Central paintings as well as previously unpublished works on paper by this internationally celebrated artist with German and Jamaican roots are presented.

Maria Beykirch : paper dances by Maria Beykirch( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspiriert durch ihren langjährigen Lehrer, den österreichischen Künstler Giselbert Hoke, entstand die spezielle Gouache-Mischtechnik für die oft vielschichtigen Darstellungen. In den teils kontemplativen, teils sehr bewegten, gestischen Bildern zeigen sich Spuren von erlebten Orten, Ereignissen und Begegnungen der Künstlerin. Gerade auch Maria Beykirchs Tanzausbildung findet sich in ihrem Oeuvre wieder, das ihre überbordende Freude am Tanz zum Ausdruck bringt. Gleichzeitig vermitteln die Werke ihre große Sehnsucht nach Ruhe in der Meditation. Maria Beykirch lebt und arbeitet in München und im Chiemgau, wo sie sich mit ihren Ausstellungen bereits einen Namen gemacht hat.0
