Koloman Moser : designing modern Vienna 1897-1907 by Koloman Moser( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his short career, Koloman Moser became a towering figure in Viennese culture. His varied work in interior and graphic design, furniture, textiles, jewelry, metalwork, glass, and earthenware helped usher in the modern era. This book surveys the entirety of Moser's oeuvre. It examines his work as a graphic designer and his involvement with the Vienna Secession, with special focus given to his role as an illustrator for the journal 'Ver Sacrum (Sacred Spring)'. Moser's forays into textile design and ceramic work are also introduced. The book features his designs for the Vienna Secession, Thonet Brothers, and the Mautner family, among others that characterize his early modern style. The book also explores Moser's seminal role as a founding member of the Vienna Workshops, along with architect Josef Hoffmann and patron Fritz Waerndorfer.--
Gustav Klimt : the complete paintings by Gustav Klimt( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During his lifetime, Klimt was a controversial star whose works made passions run high; he stood for Modernism but he also embodied tradition. His pictures polarized and divided the art-loving world. Journalists and general public alike were split over the question: For or against Klimt? The present publication therefore places particular emphasis upon the voices of Klimt's contemporaries via a series of essays examining reactions to his work throughout his career. Subjects range from Klimt's portrayal of women to his adoption of landscape painting in the second half of his life. The cliche that Gustav Klimt was a man of few words who rarely put pen to paper is vehemently dispelled: no less than 231 letters, cards, writings and other documents--all known Klimt correspondence--are included in this monograph. This wealth of archival material, assembled here for the first time on such a scale, represents a major contribution to Klimt scholarship"--Publisher's description
Gustav Klimt : Erwartung und Erfüllung : Entwürfde zum Mosaikfries im Palais Stoclet by Gustav Klimt( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1905, Adolphe Stoclet commissioned a private mansion in Brussels. A synthesis of the arts, it was decorated by artists from and friends of the Wiener Werkstätte. On the occasion of the completion of the frieze's restoration, this publication now traces Klimt's approach and compares his instructions with the pieces of the mosaic executed by the Wiener Werkstätte and relics of their work. It also includes details on the restoration and conservation of the frieze, and sheds light on the appropriation of the motifs in terms of history and art history as well as Klimt's reception of Japanese painting.

Cubism, constructivism, form art by Österreichische Galerie Belvedere (Vienna)( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the 14th Vienna Secession exhibition in 1902 to the development of Constructivism in the 1920s, art in Austria- Hungary underwent a seismic change that challenged preconceptions, and broke the rules to shake up European Art. Tracing the evolution of art during this time period, this book makes valuable connections between the seemingly disparate Formkunst of Vienna, Cubism in Prague, and Hungarian Constructivism. Focusing on the works of artists such as Josef Hoffmann, Gustav Klimt, Josef Capek, Koloman Moser, Egon Schiele, Frantis Kupka, Lajos Kassa, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and drawing from the latest scholarly research, this book presents a fundamental reinterpretation of turn-of-the-century art as it flourished in the Habsburg Empire

Say it with flowers! : Viennese flower painting from Waldmüller to Klimt by Rolf H Johannsen( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this breathtaking book, richly illustrated chapters explore different artists' takes on floral paintings. Outstanding Viennese artists, from Ferdinand Georg Waldmuller to Gustav Klimt, tested their skills by painting opulent floral works. Readers will learn how the depiction of flowers in this period echoed the evolution of painting styles as artists liberated themselves from formal techniques, how women, excluded from painting academies, turned to flowers as a means of expression and emancipation, and how modern artists are influenced today by floral masterpieces of the past. Additional chapters examine the role of the sunflower in particular and the role of orientalism in the Biedermeier period, while brief essays on porcelain painting and botany provide additional perspectives. Generously illustrated, this wide-ranging and informative history offers a veritable bounty of floral delights."

In six sections, this comprehensive MAK exhibition encompasses handicraft from historical times to current European perspectives, examines how handicraft can help preserve natural resources, explores new developments on the interface to digital technologies, and presents masterpieces from a range of craft disciplines.0Currently the terms?handicraft? and?handmade? are used in an inflationary manner in advertising and lifestyle media. The Maker Movement and DIY culture are enormously successful, creating a worldwide hype.

The Wiener Werkstätte style influenced generations of architects from Bauhaus to Art Deco. This book features the work of well-known Wiener Werkstätte members such as Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, and Dagobert Peche along with lesser known designers such as Gudrun Baudisch, Carl Otto Czeschka, and Ugo Zovetti.
