Gustav Klimt : the Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky collections by Gustav Klimt( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was on of the gaints of twentieth-century art. As the fonder and first president of the Secession in 1897, Klimt was a central figure in the cultural life of Vienna's Golden Age and provided a crucial link between nineteenth-century Symbolism and Modernism. His sensual portrayals of women and richly patterened landscapes anticipated many of the formal advances of his peers. Klimt pushed the boundaries of artistic expression and developed a unique pictorial vocabulary, drawing from sources of the past to create a refined, delicate, highly evacative style. Klimit's work embodies the quintessence of fin de siècle Vienna"--Inside cover

Degenerate art : the attack on modern art in Nazi Germany, 1937 by Olaf Peters( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book accompanies the first major museum exhibition devoted to a reconstruction of the infamous Nazi display of modern art since the presentation originated by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1991. During the Nazi regime in Germany, "degenerate art" was the official term for much of the most important modern art of the day. "Degenerate art" was defined by the Nazi regime as artwork that was not in line with the National Socialists' ideas of beauty. Their condemnation extended to works in nearly every major art movement: Expressionism, Dada, New Objectivity, Surrealism, Cubism, and Fauvism. Banned artists included Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, and Oskar Kokoschka. Richly illustrated, Degenerate Art elucidates the historical and intellectual context of the notorious exhibition in Munich in 1937, which spurred the attack on modern art. The book contains reflections on the genesis and evolution of the term "degenerate art" and details of the National Socialist policy on art. Art works from the exhibition Degenerate Art are compared to works of art from The Great German Art Exhibition, which was held at the same time and displayed the works of officially approved artists. The book also presents the after-effects of the attack on modernism that are felt even today
Egon Schiele : the Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky collections by Egon Schiele( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. A superb draftsman and colorist, he produced images of startling emotional power. Following the lead of his mentor Gustav Klimt, Schiele created figurative works of uncanny intimacy and brought a new openness to the art of his time. Schiele's death at the age of 28 has added a mythic quality to his artistic achievements." "This publication accompanies the exhibition Egon Schiele: The Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky Collections, which presents paintings and drawings from the collections of the co-founders of Neue Galerie New York. Together, these collections comprise the finest gathering of works by Schiele in the United States." "Essays examine the artist's reception history in American and Austria, the censorship of his art during and after his lifetime, and the lost Schiele collections. This publication also traces, for the first time, Schiele's enormous influence on contemporary culture."--Jacket
Berlin Metropolis 1918-1933( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1871 and 1919, the population of Berlin quadrupled and the city became the political center of Germany, as well as the turbulent crossroads of the modern age. This was reflected in the work of artists, directors, writers and critics of the time. As an imperial capital, Berlin was the site of violent political revolution and radical aesthetic innovation. After the German defeat in World War I, artists employed collage to challenge traditional concepts of art. Berlin Dadaists reflected upon the horrors of war and the terrors of revolution and civil war. Between 1924 and 1929, jazz, posters, magazines, advertisements and cinema played a central role in the development of Berlin's urban experience as the spirit of modernity took hold. The concept of the Neue Frau -the modern, emancipated woman-helped move the city in a new direction. Finally, Berlin became a stage for political confrontation between the left and the right and was deeply affected by the economic crisis and mass unemployment at the end of the 1920s. This book explores in numerous essays and illustrations the artistic, cultural and social upheavals in Berlin between 1918 and 1933 and places them in a broader historical framework
Munch and expressionism by J Lloyd( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue accompanies a major exhibition at the Neue Galerie new York devoted to offering a fascinating new look at the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch and his influence on his Austrian and German contemporaries. Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was highly regarded for his exploration of dark themes, including alienation, sin, and human vulnerability. His work incorporates the vivid colors of previous styles, but Munch intensified their emotional power and paved the way for an entirely new approach to painting. Although much has been written about Munch's life and its influence on his art, this catalogue is the first thorough study of the artist's impact on his German and Austrian peers, and places his oeuvre in an Expressionist context. Essays by leading scholars in the field examine the close connection between Munch and his Austrian and German counterparts, with special attention focused upon the work of Max Beckmann. Munch's self-portraits are also closely examined, as is his seminal role in working with the woodcut in a highly innovative fashion, and his influence upon the work of Erich Heckel and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner in particular"--

Koloman Moser : designing modern Vienna 1897-1907 by Koloman Moser( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his short career, Koloman Moser became a towering figure in Viennese culture. His varied work in interior and graphic design, furniture, textiles, jewelry, metalwork, glass, and earthenware helped usher in the modern era. This book surveys the entirety of Moser's oeuvre. It examines his work as a graphic designer and his involvement with the Vienna Secession, with special focus given to his role as an illustrator for the journal 'Ver Sacrum (Sacred Spring)'. Moser's forays into textile design and ceramic work are also introduced. The book features his designs for the Vienna Secession, Thonet Brothers, and the Mautner family, among others that characterize his early modern style. The book also explores Moser's seminal role as a founding member of the Vienna Workshops, along with architect Josef Hoffmann and patron Fritz Waerndorfer.--
Klimt and the women of Vienna's golden age 1900-1918 by Tobias G Natter( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This authoritative and generously illustrated book highlights Gustav Klimt's portrayals of women in his work. Klimt was a central figure in Vienna at the turn of the twentieth century, and a crucial link between nineteenth-century Symbolism and Modernism. His sensual portrayals of women are among his most celebrated works and the focus of this book
Richard Gerstl( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Viennese artist Richard Gerstl is still regarded as being an insider tip. And yet he was one of the most important artists in Vienna in around 1900, alongside Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka. Although he was only 25 years old when he died, he created an exciting and unusual oeuvre. This volume accompanying the first comprehensive retrospective in Germany introduces all the aspects of this exceptional artist. The artistic career of Richard Gerstl (1883?1908) extended over only approximately five years. During his lifetime he refused to allow his work to be exhibited in any way. As a result of his dramatic early death by his own hand many of his works were destroyed and almost no personal belongings have survived. The present work on his entire oeuvre finally fills the gap this has left. In his subjects portraits, landscapes and nude paintings, including the first nude self-portrait by an artist since Dürer, Gerstl succeeded in freeing his style from that of Salon painting. He applied the paint in an increasingly pastose and free manner and created pictures which are regarded as some of the most modern works of his time.--
Alexei Jawlensky( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexei Jawlensky (1864-1941) was Russian, but lived in Germany much of his life and obtained German citizenship in 1934. He was a friend of Vasily Kandinsky, who he met in Munich when studying painting with Anton Azbè, and had close ties to the German Expressionist artists. This book illustrates how the artist was influenced, apart from the German Expressionists, by the art of Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse and the Fauves, and by Ferdinand Hodler. The book presents the chronological and thematic development of Jawlensky's art from early figure painting to landscapes and from still lives to the late iconic portraits and fascinating meditations

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The distinguished curator, critic, collector, art historian, and teacher William Rubin was a forceful presence for over two decades at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) from the late 1960s through the 1980s. He was extraordinarily successful at acquiring for the collection such monuments of modern art as Pollock's One: Number 31, 1950 and Picasso's 1914 sheet-metal Guitar. The exhibitions he mounted as Chief Curator and later Director of the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum-among them the unprecedented Pablo Picasso: A Retrospective-set a standard of curatorial excellence. A Curator's Quest is the story of the professional life of a pioneering curator who built the Modern's unparalleled collection, and a history of MoMA itself during that key period. A Curator's Quest begins with Rubin's account of his life in art, including early influences, his arrival at the Museum to work with its founding director Alfred H. Barr, Jr., and recollections of the challenges and accomplishments during his tenure. Rubin writes about his notable exhibitions such as Dada, Surrealism, and Their Heritage; Picasso and Braque: Pioneering Cubism; and "Primitivism" in 20th Century Art (organized with Kirk Varnedoe, who would become Rubin's successor). With a distinctive style, he provides rare insights into his acquisitions, including Klimt's Hope II, Klee's Mask of Fear, and Miro's Birth of the World, and into his relationships with such distinguished collectors as Sidney Janis, Florene May Schoenborn, William S. Paley, David Rockefeller, Nelson A. Rockefeller, the architect Gordon Bunschaft, Ben Heller, and Ronald S. Lauder. The heart of the book is magnificent plate section with full-color images of nearly 250 of Rubin's major acquisitions. From Cezanne, van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Miro, Mondrian, Pollock, de Kooning, and Rothko to Lichtenstein and Warhol, the range and depth of the works acquired made an undeniable impact on the Museum and the world of modern art. Rubin's considerable expansion of MoMA's collection of Abstract Expressionism and Surrealism was enhanced by important works by the next generation of artists, such as Rauschenberg, Johns, Serra, and Stella. The book concludes with Rubin's series of art history lectures, "The Pioneers of Modernism," presented at Sotheby's in 1997 and 1998"--Jacket
