Le tumulte noir : modernist art and popular entertainment in Jazz-Age Paris, 1900-1930 by Jody Blake( Book )

24 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and French and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jody Blake demonstrates in this book that although the impact of African-American music and dance in France was constant from 1900 to 1930, it was not unchanging. This was due in part to the stylistic development and diversity of African-American music and dance, from the prewar cakewalk and ragtime to the postwar Charleston and jazz. Successive groups of modernists, beginning with the Matisse and Picasso circle in the 1900s and concluding with the Surrealists and Purists in the 1920s, constructed different versions of la musique and la danse negre. Manifested in creative and critical works, these responses to African-American music and dance reflected the modernists' varying artistic agendas and historical climates
High drama : Eugene Berman and the legacy of the melancholic sublime by Michael Duncan( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of the acclaimed visionary artist Eugene Berman taps into a fascinating and little-known undercurrent in twentieth-century aesthetics. Variously labeled neo-Romantics, fantacists, neo-humanists, and magic realists, Berman and his peers ignored the formalist dicta of modernism to explore lyrical, emotive, and highly personal realms deemed the "melancholic sublime." In High Drama, Michael Duncan's exploration of the beliefs, styles, and legacy of the "melancholic sublime," and the biographies and reproductions of the work of thirty-five artists, complete a thorough look at a school of great interest, ripe for rediscovery by today's museum-goers and readers

Dada Africa : dialogue with the other by Museum Rietberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Apart from the notorious brouhaha it caused on the European art scene of the time, the Dada movement aimed also at bringing to life non-European forms of artistic expression. The Dadaists understood shape, material, sound, and movement as equally valid means of cultural manifestation. This aspect of one of the 20th century's most influential artistic movements has been largely ignored so far by scholars and connoisseurs alike. Zürich's Museum Rietberg is home to a vast collection of African art gathered by Han Coray, a Zürich-based patron of the arts and collector who also staged Dada shows in his gallery in Zürich in 1917. Works by Dada artists also constitute a key part of Berlinische Galerie's permanent collection. Published in conjunction with exhibitions at the two museums in spring and summer 2016, this new book for the first time closely examines the Dadaists' exploration of non-European art and culture. Richly illustrated essays shed light on the cultural background of artifacts from Africa, Asia, and Oceania from an ethnological perspective. Other contributions investigate how Dada is reflected in the post-colonial discourse and understood in the context of culture transfer. The book features work by Jean Arp, Hugo Ball, Johannes Baader, George Grosz, Raoul Hausmann, Erich Heckel, John Heartfield, Hannah Höch, Richard Huelsenbeck, Marcel Janco, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Rudolf Schlichter, Man Ray, Hans Richter, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Tristan Tzara, as well as by unidentified artists from Africa, Oceania, and Asia.
