Anselm Kiefer : the heavenly palaces, Merkabah by Peter Nisbet( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While most major museums in the United States and abroad hold examples of the German artist Anselm Kiefer's work, the nature and extent of his achievement are the subject of intense debate. This volume reproduces in full The Heavenly Palaces, Merkabah, an important large-scale artist's book created by Kiefer in 1990. Featuring images reproduced here in full color, this work is accompanied by three essays by experts who approach the book from various perspectives, explicating its many layers of meaning to an unprecedented degree." "The first essay deals impressionistically with the motifs and iconography of The Heavenly Palaces Merkabah. The next treats its themes and meaning, concentrating especially on Jewish references and resonances, an especially challenging aspect of this German artist's oeuvre. In the final essay, the importance of the medium of photography is addressed by surveying its use by Kiefer since the beginning of his career."--Jacket

Der Maler und Grafiker Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956) machte erste fotografische Versuche erst im Alter von 58 Jahren, als er bereits fast zehn Jahre Meister am Bauhaus war. Vermutlich inspiriert von seinen Söhnen Lux und Andreas und den experimentellen Fotografien seines Dessauer Nachbarn László Moholy-Nagy, griff der Künstler ab 1928 zur Kamera und versuchte sich in einer Vielzahl von Techniken der Avantgarde. Die Publikation konzentriert sich auf seine aktivste Zeit in diesem Medium. Sie wirft Licht auf diesen wenig bekannten Werkteil und lotet anhand von rund 70 Originalabzügen dessen Bedeutung innerhalb von Feiningers Oeuvre aus. Exhibition: Kupferstichkabinett, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (25.2.-15.5.2011); Pinakothek der Moderne, München (2.6.-17.7.2011); J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles (25.10.2011-11.3.2012); Harvard Art Museums, Cambridge, Massachusetts (30.3.-2.6.2012)

El Lissitzky in the proun years : a study of his work and thought, 1919-1927 by Peter Nisbet( )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Topics addressed include: the decisive effect of Kazimir Malevich's painting and theory; architectural imagery and discourse as the initial impetus and arena for Lissitzky's abstract works and their utopian ambition: the Moscow avant-garde's debates about the role of art in a post-revolutionary society as the context for the invention and elaboration of the Proun concept; the pervasive recourse to biological and organic metaphors and themes in Lissitzky's writings (reflecting his engagement with Oswald Spengler and the biologist Raoul Heinrich France), and in some compositions; the Prouns' signifying position within the field of contemporary abstract art (especially the work of Malevich, Vassili Kandinsky, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy); issues of abstraction and reference in Lissitzky's illustrations and graphic design for literary work by Ilya Ehrenburg and Vladimir Mayakovsky; the increasing importance of photography to Lissitzky, as a possible successor to the Prouns; his innovative fusion of typographic design, experimental photography and work on an architectural scale as a key aspect of the decision to stop making and showing Prouns
