9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julian Schnabel : Malerei = paintings 1978-2003 by Julian Schnabel( Book )

16 editions published in 2004 in 3 languages and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julian Schnabel, who was born in 1951 in Brooklyn, New York, was among the young artists who were celebrated enthusiastically in the eighties for having helped revive painting, a genre which had been declared dead. His highly expressive large-format paintings soon made him a star of Neo-Expressive painting. Schnabel often uses unusual supports for his paintings - such as used army tarpaulins, porcelain plates, Mexican pottery, or animal skins - and his experimentation with materials is reflected in his painting as well. His works, which unite oil painting and collage, fluctuate between abstract and figurative, and are sometimes dominated by letters or words. This book presents sixty-five works from the past twenty-five years in full-page or double-page color illustrations. Photographs by Schnabel himself provide a look at the painter's opulent surroundings in his house and studio. The publication is completed by a detailed biography and essays by prominent authors."--Jacket

Kingdom of the soul : symbolist art in Germany, 1870-1920 by Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published to accompany an important exhibition, this richly illustrated volume outlines the link between the Pre-Raphaelite artists in Britain and the Expressionists on the Continent. It focuses on the crucial contribution made by artists in Germany to the European Symbolist movement, providing for the first time a much-needed comparison to developments in England and other countries worldwide. Symbolism was a European cultural movement that was at its peak in the last two decades of the 19th century, profoundly affecting the visual arts and inextricably bound up with music and literature. While many Symbolists reacted against the materialism of 19th-century science and its implications, others sought to reconcile modern science with spiritual traditions. Symbolism stressed feeling and evocation over definition and fact and emphasized the power of suggestion. In Germany, artists including Arnold Bocklin, Ferdinand Hodler, and Kathe Kollwitz worked within the Symbolist tradition. By focusing on this neglected German axis between 1870 and 1920, Symbolist Art makes an important contribution to our understanding and appreciation of this fascinating period in art history
James Ensor by James Ensor( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Belgian painter James Ensor (1860-1949) created a body of work that is comical, ironic and profound, which can be interpreted in many ways.' To a large degree his work is self-referential, both foreshadowing and reflecting back upon itself and containing many simultaneous strands of development and parallel phenomena." "Ensor's unusual motifs, which became distinctive symbols for the absurdity of life, have fascinated and influenced other artists from all other periods since then in view of new tendencies in contemporary art such as the manifestation of the grotesque and comic, Ensor's work is yet again current. Featuring almost 80 masterpieces on canvas and over no works on paper-both drawings and prints - this monograph presents key works from all periods of his career. Special focus is given to the artist's later works, which have long been neglected by art historians."--Jacket

Gustave Caillebotte : an impressionist and photography by Karin Sagner( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The paintings of Gustave Caillebotte depict striking Parisian street scenes, from Boulevard Haussmann and The Bridge of Europe looking out onto the Gare Saint-Lazare to Caillebotte's best-known work, Paris Street, Rainy Day, which hangs in Chicago's Art Institute today. Caillebotte has long been acknowledged as an important painter--and munificent patron--of the French impressionist movement. Yet his paintings, in their near-photographic precision, stand apart from the works of Renoir and Monet in important ways. Gustave Caillebotte: An Impressionist and Photography sets out to explore the development of the artist's distinctive style. Though there is no evidence that Caillebotte practiced photography, he took an early interest in the art form, influenced perhaps by his brother, the photographer Martial Caillebotte. As a result, Gustave Caillebotte's paintings show an emphasis on realism and often take on the composition and perspective of a photograph as well, with figures toward the center in sharp focus, while those in the foreground or background remain indistinct. Karin Sagner and Max Hollein have carefully chosen from among Caillebotte's works a selection of paintings that exemplify this characteristic of the artist's style. They are presented here alongside critical essays and works by photographers who were Caillebotte's contemporaries and shared an affinity for documenting the nineteenth-century French capital, including André Kertész, Wols and László Moholy-Nagy, Édouard Baldus, Charles Marville, and Eugène Atget. While there have been many studies of Caillebotte's work, this is the first book to publish his paintings side-by-side with a selection of early photographs taken between 1850 and 1930. Together, they establish Caillebotte as the pioneer of a radically modern photographic form that added a new dimension to French impressionism and exerted an important influence on later photography."

Op Art : Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt by Martina Weinhart( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thus art is not an object, but an experience." This volume collects the work of a generation of international "op artists" who were fascinated by the physical laws of light and optics, visual phenomena and the principles of perception. Op art, also known as optical art, is a style of visual art that makes use of optical illusions. "Optical art is a method of painting concerning the interaction between illusion and picture plane, between understanding and seeing." Op art works are abstract, with many of the better known pieces made in only black and white. When the viewer looks at them, the impression is given of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibration, patterns, or alternatively, of swelling or warping
