Arcadia and Metropolis : masterworks of German Expressionism from the Nationalgalerie Berlin by Roland März( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication presents a selection of important paintings from the Nationalgalerie Berlin, one of Germany's major collections of twentieth-century art. Major Expressionist and Neue Sachlichkeit artists represented here include Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Emil Nolde, Max Pechstein, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. Arranged thematically, and with in-depth explanatory texts, the paintings trace the evolution of German art as it moved from the mountains to the city, from optimism to bitter disillusionment. Essays by key scholars and curators examine these artists' varied responses to their country's abrupt encounter with industrialization and urbanization."--BOOK JACKET
The Klee universe by Paul Klee( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are artists whose métier is the observation or documentation of the world, and artists who set the world aside altogether to build their own visionary cosmology, designing its constituent parts from scratch as a personal mythology relayed in motifs. Paul Klee (1879-1940) was such an artist, as his aphorism "Art does not reproduce the visible, rather it makes visible" testifies, and The Klee Universe addresses his work from this perspective. In 1906, Klee noted in his diary, "All will be Klee," and in 1911, as the encyclopedist of his cosmos, he began to meticulously chronicle his works in a catalogue that, by the time he died, was to contain more than 9,000 items. Here, in the fashion of an Orbis Pictus or a Renaissance emblem book, Klee's oeuvre is made legible as a cogent entirety, in thematic units address: the human life cycle, from birth and childhood to sexual desire, parenthood and death; music, architecture, theater and religion; plants, animals and landscapes; and, finally, darker, destructive forces in the shape of war, fear and death. The Klee Universe reimagines the artist as a Renaissance man, an artist of great learning whose cosmos proves to be a coherent system of ideas and images
Considering Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture : what is OMA by Rem Koolhaas( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is OMA provides a clear insight into the role and significance of Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. Authors of international repute from beyond the province of architecture examine OMA's work in the light of social and economic developments. The many facets of Koolhaas come under review: his take on architectural theory and the conceptual apparatus he employs, his vision of urbanism and the contemporary city, the designs put into practice by OMA and the research projects of the AMO think tank, which exist outside the immediate boundaries of architecture. This book paints an intelligent picture of the sheer range of OMA's architecture and of Koolhaas's seminal role in the architectural world."--Jacket

Marsden Hartley : the German paintings 1913-1915 by Dieter Scholz( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in German and English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"American painter Marsden Hartley (1877-1943) lived in Europe from 1913 to 1915. After spending some time in Paris and Munich he moved to Berlin, where he painted his most impressive works. Hartley was associated with Herwarth Walden's Sturm gallery and participated in its 'First German Autumn Salon' in 1913, which featured numerous international artists. Immediately prior to and after his Berlin years, Hartley cultivated a style of painting that was moderately figurative, however the years 1913 to 1915 marked an apogee of abstraction in his career. During these years he developed a completely independent vernacular, which placed him at the forefront of the avant-garde of the time. His paintings from this period literally explode off the canvas, they are composed of bright, starkly contrasting colours that directly border one another. The theme around which these works revolve is the First World War. Flags, military standards and insignia such as the Iron Cross form recurring motifs in the paintings. Hartley's relationship with the Prussian Officer Karl von Freybourg, who died just months after the outbreak of war, led to Hartley producing such masterworks as 'Portrait of a German Officer' (1914, Metropolitan Museum, New York), in which abstract forms and military paraphanalia are so densely interwoven that the resulting portrait is composed purely of symbols."--Staatliche Museen zu Berlin website, viewed June 5, 2014
Helmut Newton : work by Helmut Newton( Book )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

INDIVIDUAL PHOTOGRAPHERS. TRILINGUAL. IN ENGLISH / FRENCH / GERMAN. Agent provocateur: Top shots from Helmut Newton. Helmut Newton (1920-2004) is remembered as one of the most prolific photographers of the 20th century, channeling the sensuality and erotic power of his subjects with panache, precision, and impact. His aesthetic was uniquely his as much as it established a new image system for fashion and glamour. Joining TASCHEN's illustrious collection of Helmut Newton titles, including Helmut Newton Polaroids, Pages from the Glossies, and the spectacular Helmut Newton SUMO, this fresh edition of Helmut Newton: Work spans the stretch of Newton's career, with some of his most striking shots from the 60s through to his golden heyday. From shadowy street to hotel boudoir, it's a collection that showcases Newton's suggestive storytelling throughout his fashion, editorial, or personal pictures
Jeff Koons : celebration by Jeff Koons( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeff Koons' spectacular October 2008 exhibition at Berlin's Neue Nationalgalerie presented the infamous series of sculptures and paintings known collectively as Celebration, a project whose fabrication has involved so much labor (both manual and computer-aided) that Koons More...seemed to almost vanish from the art world radar in the 1990s, when he first undertook the series. At present, Celebration's best-known work may be the 10-foot-tall, stainless-steel Balloon Dog, typical of the outsize scale and remarkably clean sheen of Koons' sculptures, in which the sensory joys of childhood object relations are revisited and espoused. Such works wear their playroom origins on their sleeves, but their gargantuan proportions, with their attendant sense of menace, establish them firmly in the adult world as infant objects retrieved and rebuilt with adult strength. The work tries to gain support from the confidence of the gesture, Koons says, to be kind of in the moment, and to have confidence within the self. Inasmuch as such observations could be true of much art, Koons is unusually open about what drives his work, all the while preserving its self-sufficiency as art. This monograph documents these mammoth installations in the Neue Nationalgalerie's Upper Hall, an exhibition that without doubt constitutes a milestone in the artist's career
Jannis Kounellis in der Neuen Nationalgalerie = Jannis Kounellis in the Neue Nationalgalerie by Jannis Kounellis( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in German and English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Piraeus in 1936 but living in Rome since the mid-fifties, Jannis Kounellis is considered one of the pioneers of Arte Povera, a movement which seeks to construct installations using cheap and primarily "unartistic" materials such as sacks, coal, coffee, and gas. These unusual materials help the artist to create "pictures" which convey a sense of forgotten forces of an archaic world." "This publication accompanies the latest work of the Greco-Italian artist, who has assembled his installation in the form of a labyrinth in the upper hall of the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. In the open-plan, seemingly endless hall, Kounellis has used sheets of metal to erect an apparently impenetrable labyrinth. In the various rooms resulting from this maze's existence, we discover and explore works from the different stages of the artist's creative development - it is as though we are on a journey through his life."--Jacket
Mélancolie, génie et folie en occident : en hommage à Raymond Klibansky, 1905-2005 : Galeries nationales du grand palais, Paris, 10 octobre 2005-16 janvier 2006 ; Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, 17 février-7 mai 2006 by Galeries nationales du Grand Palais (France)( Book )

"Depuis certaines stèles antiques jusqu'à de nombreuses oeuvres contemporaines, en passant par de grands artistes comme Dürer, La Tour, Watteau, Goya, Friedrich, Delacroix, Rodin ou Picasso, l'iconographie de la mélancolie, d'une richesse remarquable, offre une nouvelle approche de l'histoire du malaise saturnien et montre comment cette humeur sacrée a façonné le génie européen."

Spirit of an age : nineteenth-century paintings from the National Galerie, Berlin by Neue Nationalgalerie (Germany)( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Berlin was one of the last European capitals to become a great city, transforming itself from a barracks town to a centre of art, industry and empire in a century of extraordinarily rapid development. The Nationalgalerie in Berlin, opened in 1876, uniquely mirrors developments in nineteenth-century art both there and elsewhere in Germany. Its representative holdings include a number of key works. This book, with essays that provide continuity and context, and with detailed entries on individual paintings, offers a rare introduction in English to German art of the nineteenth century. it accompanies a major loan exhibition organised by the National Gallery, London and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC."--Jacket
