New worlds : German and Austrian art, 1890-1940 by Neue Galerie New York( Book )

16 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the inaugural catalogue of the Neue Galerie New York, is the first book to bring to light the history of the works of fine and decorative artists of Germany and Austria between 1890 and 1940. Focusing on 26 visual artists and 18 decorative artists whose work is represented in the Neue Galerie New York collection, the catalogue offers an overview of their works and situates them within the history of their reception in twentieth-century America. It also tells the stories of the numerous museum officials, patrons, art dealers, and journalists who brought these artworks to the attention of the American public." "The catalogue illuminates the little-known facts of German and Austrian artists' reception in America through biographies that describe the highlights of their lives and careers as well as their presentations in the United States. A variety of catalogue essays examine such topics as the cultural context within which German and Austrian Expressionism arose, public response to museum presentations of German art, formalistic issues in Austrian decorative arts, aesthetic quests in the German decorative arts, and key moments in the American reception of German and Austrian decorative arts."--Jacket
Gustav Klimt : the Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky collections by Gustav Klimt( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was on of the gaints of twentieth-century art. As the fonder and first president of the Secession in 1897, Klimt was a central figure in the cultural life of Vienna's Golden Age and provided a crucial link between nineteenth-century Symbolism and Modernism. His sensual portrayals of women and richly patterened landscapes anticipated many of the formal advances of his peers. Klimt pushed the boundaries of artistic expression and developed a unique pictorial vocabulary, drawing from sources of the past to create a refined, delicate, highly evacative style. Klimit's work embodies the quintessence of fin de siècle Vienna"--Inside cover
Degenerate art : the attack on modern art in Nazi Germany, 1937 by Olaf Peters( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Während der NS-Diktatur in Deutschland wurde ein großer Teil der modernen Kunst als "entartet" diffamiert und die Künstler und deren Förderer aufs Massivste verfolgt. Verfemt wurden Werke, die nicht mit den nationalsozialistischen Idealen und volkspädagogischen Interessen vereinbar waren. Die Verurteilung erstreckte sich auch auf kommunistische und jüdische Künstler und auf nahezu alle großen Kunstströmungen: Expressionismus, Dada, Neue Sachlichkeit, Surrealismus, Kubismus und Fauvismus. Verfemte Künstler waren u. a. Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, Otto Dix, Lovis Corinth, Max Ernst und Oskar Kokoschka. 'Degenerate Art' beschreibt die 1937 in München stattfindende Ausstellung Entartete Kunst, die den Angriff auf die moderne Kunst in Gang setzte. Sie wurde in der Nähe vom damaligen "Haus der Deutschen Kunst" gezeigt, in dem zeitgleich die erste Große Deutsche Kunstausstellung stattfand, die Künstler ausstellte, die vom NS-Regime offiziell anerkannt waren. Weitere Themen im Buch sind die Entstehung und Entwicklung des Begriffs "Entartete Kunst", Details zur nationalsozialistischen Kunstpolitik sowie die Nachwirkungen des Angriffs auf die moderne Kunst.0Exhibition: Neue Galerie New York, USA (13.03.-30.06.2014)
Egon Schiele : the Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky collections by Egon Schiele( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. A superb draftsman and colorist, he produced images of startling emotional power. Following the lead of his mentor Gustav Klimt, Schiele created figurative works of uncanny intimacy and brought a new openness to the art of his time. Schiele's death at the age of 28 has added a mythic quality to his artistic achievements." "This publication accompanies the exhibition Egon Schiele: The Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky Collections, which presents paintings and drawings from the collections of the co-founders of Neue Galerie New York. Together, these collections comprise the finest gathering of works by Schiele in the United States." "Essays examine the artist's reception history in American and Austria, the censorship of his art during and after his lifetime, and the lost Schiele collections. This publication also traces, for the first time, Schiele's enormous influence on contemporary culture."--Jacket
Berlin Metropolis 1918-1933( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1871 and 1919, the population of Berlin quadrupled and the city became the political center of Germany, as well as the turbulent crossroads of the modern age. This was reflected in the work of artists, directors, writers and critics of the time. As an imperial capital, Berlin was the site of violent political revolution and radical aesthetic innovation. After the German defeat in World War I, artists employed collage to challenge traditional concepts of art. Berlin Dadaists reflected upon the horrors of war and the terrors of revolution and civil war. Between 1924 and 1929, jazz, posters, magazines, advertisements and cinema played a central role in the development of Berlin's urban experience as the spirit of modernity took hold. The concept of the Neue Frau -the modern, emancipated woman-helped move the city in a new direction. Finally, Berlin became a stage for political confrontation between the left and the right and was deeply affected by the economic crisis and mass unemployment at the end of the 1920s. This book explores in numerous essays and illustrations the artistic, cultural and social upheavals in Berlin between 1918 and 1933 and places them in a broader historical framework
Munch and expressionism by Jill Lloyd( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This catalogue accompanies a major exhibition at the Neue Galerie new York devoted to offering a fascinating new look at the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch and his influence on his Austrian and German contemporaries. Edvard Munch (1863-1944) was highly regarded for his exploration of dark themes, including alienation, sin, and human vulnerability. His work incorporates the vivid colors of previous styles, but Munch intensified their emotional power and paved the way for an entirely new approach to painting. Although much has been written about Munch's life and its influence on his art, this catalogue is the first thorough study of the artist's impact on his German and Austrian peers, and places his oeuvre in an Expressionist context. Essays by leading scholars in the field examine the close connection between Munch and his Austrian and German counterparts, with special attention focused upon the work of Max Beckmann. Munch's self-portraits are also closely examined, as is his seminal role in working with the woodcut in a highly innovative fashion, and his influence upon the work of Erich Heckel and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner in particular"--

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This authoritative and generously illustrated book highlights Gustav Klimt's portrayals of women in his work.

Egon Schiele : portraits by Alessandra Comini( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book accompanies a major exhibition devoted to portraits created by Austrian artist Egon Schiele, whose figurative work exhibits intense emotion and technical brilliance. Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. A superb draftsman and colorist, he produced images of startling emotional power. Following the lead of his mentor, Gustav Klimt, Schiele created figurative works of uncanny intimacy and brought a new openness to the art of his time. Schiele's premature death at the age of 28 has added a mythic quality to his artistic achievements. Egon Schiele: Portraits focuses on five groupings of the artist's work: family and academy, fellow artists, sitters and patrons, lovers, and allegory. In addition, it features a special section on a traumatic and pivotal period in Schiele's life: his arrest and imprisonment during the summer of 1912. Documenting the artist's changing style, both pre- and post-imprisonment, the book features many key works that have been assembled for this exhibition from both American and European museums and private collections

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.

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexei Jawlensky by Alexej von Jawlensky( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexei Jawlensky (1864-1941) was Russian, but lived in Germany much of his life and obtained German citizenship in 1934. He was a friend of Vasily Kandinsky, who he met in Munich when studying painting with Anton Azbè, and had close ties to the German Expressionist artists. This book illustrates how the artist was influenced, apart from the German Expressionists, by the art of Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse and the Fauves, and by Ferdinand Hodler. The book presents the chronological and thematic development of Jawlensky's art from early figure painting to landscapes and from still lives to the late iconic portraits and fascinating meditations
Klimt & Rodin : an artistic encounter by Tobias G Natter( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the 100th anniversary of their deaths, Gustav Klimt and Auguste Rodin are celebrated as two pioneers of modernism who set new standards in their chosen media. Although they worked in different media, Auguste Rodin and Gustav Klimt were two artists whose output generated both incredible enthusiasm and virulent denunciation in their lifetimes. On the centenary of their deaths, in 1917 and 1918 respectively, this opulent volume highlights the remarkable parallels between the two creators: their passion for the human figure, erotic subject matter, pioneering techniques, and the achievement of international success. In chapters of alternating perspectives, this book features essays on fin-de-siècle Vienna, the phenomenon of artistic celebrity, and a tribute to the two seminal works that each artist gave the same name: The Kiss. Bringing these two masters together for the first time in such a detailed manner, this book captures a significant moment in European culture and demonstrates why their geniuses still speak so profoundly to us today."--
Franz Marc and August Macke 1909-1914 by Franz Marc( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book also reveals how 20th-century Expressionism evolved during Marc and Macke's collaboration. While celebrating the two men's obvious differences, this volume reveals how their differences served to deepen their friendship and how their distinct artistic styles influences one another"--Publisher's description
The self-portrait : from Schiele to Beckmann by Tobias G Natter( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This visually stunning volume offers perceptive examinations of several renowned German and Austrian Expressionist artists who redefined modern self-portraiture. The self-portrait has been a vital aspect of artistic expression throughout history. Neo-Classical painters such as El Greco and Rembrandt formalized the practice, and the first half of the 20th century saw a dramatic transformation in the self-portrait's style and context, especially in the hands of the German and Austrian Expressionists. Vibrant reproductions of works by Egon Schiele, Max Beckmann, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Oskar Kokoschka, and others are accompanied by essays that explore how these artists--many of whom were classified as "degenerate" by the Nazi party--imbued their images with eloquent expressions of resistance, isolation, entrapment, and provocation. From Schiele's erotically charged and overtly physical paintings to Beckmann's emotionally fraught depictions of psychic trauma, this important examination of a powerful aspect of modern European painting brilliantly illustrates how the Expressionist self-portrait became a powerful weapon against artistic oppression. 00Exhibition: Neue Galerie, New York, USA (28.02.- 24.06.2019)
Richard Gerstl by Richard Gerstl( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Viennese artist Richard Gerstl is still regarded as being an insider tip. And yet he was one of the most important artists in Vienna in around 1900, alongside Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka. Although he was only 25 years old when he died, he created an exciting and unusual oeuvre. This volume accompanying the first comprehensive retrospective in Germany introduces all the aspects of this exceptional artist. The artistic career of Richard Gerstl (1883-1908) extended over only approximately five years. During his lifetime he refused to allow his work to be exhibited in any way. As a result of his dramatic early death by his own hand many of his works were destroyed and almost no personal belongings have survived. The present work on his entire oeuvre finally fills the gap this has left. In his subjects portraits, landscapes and nude paintings, including the first nude self-portrait by an artist since Dürer, Gerstl succeeded in freeing his style from that of Salon painting. He applied the paint in an increasingly pastose and free manner and created pictures which are regarded as some of the most modern works of his time."--Provided by publisher
Ernst Ludwig Kirchner by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ernst Ludwig Kirchner is arguably the most outstanding German Expressionist artist of the arly twentieth century. This publication and its related exhibition pay tribute to Kirchner's inventive genius with a focus on his highly individual approach to color, which he viewed as the fundamental building block to his paintings. Yet Kirchner was a multi-talented figure and his work encompassed various media--painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, photography, and even the decorative arts. Rather than accepting the traditional hierarchy that placed fine art solely at the pinnacle of an artist's achievement, Kirchner compared his activity in these various fields to a 'tightly woven, organic fabric, in which process and completion go hand in hand and one aspect drives the other on.' Beginning with his Dresden years as a founding member of the artists' group Brücke, and moving on to the periods he spent in the Berlin metropolis and in the Swiss mountainside resort of Davos, this survey provides a representative overview of Kirchner's three main phases and charts the transformation in his life's output. The essays touch on important topics related to his entire career. Jill Lloyd provides an overview and examines how color and technique were crucial, evolving elements throughout his work. Janis Staggs offers new insights into Kirchner's decorative projects, paying particular attention to his little-known metalwork and its close connection with his work in other media. Sherwin Simmons confronts Kirchner's modernity by relating the color compositions in his Berlin street scenes to the impact of electric light. Sharon Jordan analyzes Kirchner's colored woodcut series 'Peter Schlemihl's Wondrous Story' in relation to his long-abiding interest in the works of Friedrich Nietzsche. And Nelson Blitz, Jr. provides an original interpretation of Kirchner's breakfdown and suicide by situating the artist's personal story in its historical and political context."--
