Expressionism by Shulamith Behr( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The term 'Expressionist' was initially applied to French modern painting displayed in a Berlin Secession exhibition of 1911." "Shulamith Behr explores themes of opposition - from equivocal images of the city and commercial life to counter-images of the country. She examines the artistic communities in Dresden (Die Brucke), Munich (Der Blaue Reiter) and Berlin (Die Pathetiker), and explores the significance of the First World War years and the November Revolution of 1918. Though Expressionist art was categorised as 'degenerate' during the Third Reich, the tradition was absorbed into the repertoire of modernism and received renewed vigour in the post-war period."--Jacket

Kandinsky : the path to abstraction by Shulamith Behr( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wassily Kandinsky (18661944) pioneered abstract art and is a key figure in the history of modernism. This groundbreaking, fully illustrated study of Kandinsky's formative years follows his move from figurative painting to abstraction. Inspired in his early years by folklore scenes from Russia and the heightened colors of the landscape of southern Germany, he want on to co-found the Expressionist "Blaue Reiter" (Blue Rider) group of painters with Gabriele M]nter, Alexej Jawlensky, and Franz Marc. Gradually he stripped away the descriptive detail in his painting, hiding visual imagery behind fields of bright color encompassed by strong lines. He felt that what he had discovered was a path to a new spiritual reality, more akin to music than the physical world
Gabriele Münter : the search for expression 1906-1917 by Gabriele Münter( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gabriele Munter (1877-1962) was one of the most important German Expressionist artists of the early twentieth century. Her radical and experimental approach to painting revitalised the genres of portraiture, landscape and still life. She achieved a distinct voice within the cross-currents of European modernism. Today, however, Munter's work is largely unknown outside Germany, her reputation eclipsed by male contemporaries such as her partner Wassily Kandinsky." "Gabriele Munter: The Search for Expression 1906-1917 focuses on the most intensively creative period of her career, when she took what she later described as 'a great leap' - away from Impressionism into a bold and brightly coloured Expressionism. Here more than fifty key works are reproduced, with essays by leading experts, Annegret Hoberg providing an outline introduction and Shulamith Behr discussing her role as 'more than a Muse' in German Expressionism."--Jacket

Arts in exile in Britain 1933-1945 : politics and cultural identity by Shulamith Behr( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume focuses on the contribution of refugees from Nazism to the Arts in Britain. The essays examine the much neglected theme of art in internment and address the spheres of photography, political satire, sculpture, architecture, artists' organisations, institutional models, dealership and conservation. These are considered under the broad headings 'Art as Politics', 'Between the Public and the Domestic' and 'Creating Frameworks'. Such categories assist in posing questions regarding the politics of identity and gender, as well as providing an opportunity to explore the complex issues of cultural formation. The volume will be of interest to scholars and students of twentieth-century art history, museum and conservation studies, politics and cultural studies, in addition to those involved in German Studies and in German and Austrian Exile Studies."--Jacket

Ben Uri : 100 years in London : art identity migration( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marking the remarkable century of Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, from humble beginnings in London's East End in 1915 to a fully-fledged mainstream art museum, under its banner Art, Identity and Migration , this publication reveals eleven essays covering each aspect of the century's art history in parallel with the effect of emigre and Jewish artists on the cultural mosaic of Britain and Europe. They discuss the museum's world class collection including masterworks by some of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, including Soutine, Chagall, Auerbach, Bomberg, Kitaj and Kossoff. An array of distinguished scholars survey the 'Whitechapel Boys'; Yiddish London, Les Peintres Juifs de L'Ecole de Paris, Official War artists from both conflicts; mid-century émigrés influencing the direction of the arts, and contemporary artists making ground-breaking work across new media. They point to this unique collection, primarily of artists born into the Jewish faith, many shaping modern British, European and American art history, representing a distinct visual survey of artistic and social life in Britain and the cultural heritage of British Jewry

Vasily Kandinsky : from Blaue Reiter to the Bauhaus, 1910-1925 by Wassily Kandinsky( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alongside his development of a revolutionary abstract style, Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944) demonstrated an ambition to go beyond conventional easel painting. His famous large paintings with musical and theatrical associations transformed into veritable environments. The catalogue explores the evolution of a Gesamtkunstwerk in the work of Kandinsky including essays by leading Kandinsky scholars on painting as a total work of art, or the artist's interest in music and theatre. Separated into three sections, it illustrates how Kandinsky's fascination for the Wagnerian concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk and the principles of synesthesia developed into large-scale painting within the context of the two highly significant artistic groups Blaue Reiter and Bauhaus, as well as in response to the changing historical circumstances, last but not least, culminating in his large-scale decorative utopian murals and installations.
