Most widely held works by Nina Zimmer
Andreas Gursky by Andreas Gursky( Book )

16 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Famed worldwide for his epically proportioned photographs, Andreas Gursky is one of very few contemporary artists able to represent cultures of excessive information--which he does through images of supermarket wares, crowds, trash, architecture and nature. The extreme detail of Gursky's final image--achieved by digital restructuring--produces a vertiginous effect on the viewer, as it oscillates between total representation and total abstraction. It could be said that Gursky updates the eighteenth-century sublime for our times. This publication surveys the artist's most recent creations, on display at the renowned Kunstmuseum Basel throughout the winter of 2007/2008. Two new groups of works in particular, one on Formula 1 races and the other on the famous Arirang Festival (a closely choreographed mass spectacle in North Korea's capital of Pyongyang), are gathered here."--Publisher description
The figurative Pollock by Jackson Pollock( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in German and English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautiful book focuses on the distinctive and expressive power of Jackson Pollock's figurative paintings, drawings, and prints; a rarely studied aspect of his artistic career. Pollock's name has become synonymous with the abstract drip paintings that he famously created on the floor of his studio. Before these paintings, from the 1930s to the late 1940s, Pollock created figurative works, studying at one time under the painter Thomas Hart Benton and with the Mexican muralists Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. Pollock took up figuration again after his famous drip paintings. This book starts with the early decades and also treats Pollock's re-adoption of the figuration after his renowned abstract paintings. It features 100 paintings and works on paper. From rolling landscapes to experiments in non-Western totemic painting to sketches and drawings fueled by Jungian analysis, the enormous range of Pollock's early and late work is presented here. Brimming with confidence and a sense of freedom, distinct yet so easily related to Pollock's most famous oeuvre, these works contribute to an understanding of how the artist found his voice
Soutine und die Moderne = Soutine and modernism by Chaim Soutine( Book )

Om den russisk-franske maler Chaim Soutine (1894-1943)
The revolution is dead - long live the revolution! : from Malevich to Judd, from Deineka to Bartana( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The point of departure for the present publication is the strikingly innovative artistic spirit of the Russian avant-garde, along with the Socialist Realism that became established after the revolution. It addresses the radical conceptions of the revolutionary artistic movements of the early 20th century and their significance for the breakthroughs to abstraction and Constructivism. It also traces the implications and the traces of Socialist Realism as an ideologically motivated pictorial formula up to the present day. Also investigated is the actuality and viability of revolutionary ideas and art with reference to numerous examples of both abstract and representational art. For those interested in the works and ideas of these movements, and in the artistic consequences of the October Revolution in general, this sumptuous publication offers fascinating insights and a comprehensive overview.0Exhibition: Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern, Switzerland (13.04.-09.07.2017)

Jahrhunderts.

Hodler - Parallelismus by Ferdinand Hodler( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in French and German and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiré du site internet des Musées d'art et d'histoire (www.ville-geneve.ch/mah) : "Le Kunstmuseum Bern et les Musées d'art et d'histoire de Genève - situés dans les villes de naissance et de décès de l'artiste - ont décidé d'unir leurs collections et leurs forces pour proposer, avec l'appui d'autres institutions suisses et de nombreux prêteurs privés, une exposition d'environ 100 tableaux, qui permettra d'embrasser la carrière de Hodler, d'établir les liens qu'il nouait entre ses tableaux et de décrypter ses ambitions picturales. L'exposition s'appuie sur les postulats d'une conférence de l'artiste donnée à Fribourg en 1897 sous le nom de La mission de l'artiste, qui exposait les grands principes esthétiques de son travail. Il y définissait la notion de parallélisme, dégagée de ses études de la nature et des hommes. Dans cette appréhension de l'univers, Hodler a développé la théorie de son œuvre. L'exposition montre les correspondances qu'il établit à l'intérieur de son œuvre, mais aussi entre les tableaux eux-mêmes : parallélisme des compositions, mais également des sentiments qui se répondent d'une toile à une autre."
Paul Klee und die Surrealisten by Michael Baumgartner( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do Louis Aragon, Antonin Artaud, Paul Éluard, Joan Miró, and André Masson have to do with the painter and Bauhaus master Paul Klee? This cross-genre and fascinating subject is examined for the first time in a multifaceted exhibition. The fact that the French Surrealists saw their key concepts such as 'dreams' 'the cosmos' and 'vision' reflected in the magical, transcendental Klee's painting and even made him their spiritus rector, is remarkable considering the backdrop of Europe's political situation between the world wars. The exhibition and catalogue shed light on this fascinating chapter of the relationship between artists and expose its enormous art-historical dimension. Organized according to individual subject areas such as 'Écriture automatique' 'The World as a Dream' and 'Portraits and Masks' the book provides readers with information about this important interface between the literary and artistic avant-garde in Europe during a turbulent era.

Martha Stettler eine Impressionistin zwischen Bern und Paris by Corinne Sotzek( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in German and French and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dies ist das erste Buch über die in Bern geborene und zeitlebens in Paris tätige Malerin Martha Stettler (1870?1945). Es zeichnet reich illustriert Lebensweg und Schaffen der Künstlerin nach. Martha Stettler bevorzugte Freilichtszenen, in denen der Jardin du Luxembourg, die Tuilerien und der Schlosspark von Versailles die beliebtesten Schauplätze sind. Sie setzte sich immer wieder für Künstlerinnen ein und war Mitbegründerin sowie Leiterin der Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, zu deren Schülern u. a. Alberto Giacometti und Meret Oppenheim gehörten. Auf internationalen Ausstellungen erhielt sie namhafte Auszeichnungen und konnte als erste Schweizerin 1920 an der Biennale von Venedig ausstellen. Ihr Schaffen, das dem Spätimpressionismus zuzurechnen ist, war zu ihren Lebzeiten breit bekannt, und diese Publikation macht ihren Stellenwert in der Malerei des ersten Viertels des 20. Jahrhunderts deutlich.00Exhibition: Kunstmuseum, Bern, Switzerland (4.5. - 29.7.2018)

Liquid reflections : Werke der Anne-Marie und Victor Loeb-Stiftung( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Harald Szeemann, the renowned exhibition organizer and friend of the entrepreneurs Anne-Marie Loeb-Haymann (1916-1999) and Victor Loeb (1910-1974), described their attitude as an emphatic "yes to the present day." Between 1964 and 1974, the couple assembled a collection that was ripe for a museum from the start. To their contemporary art, often acquired directly from artists' studios, the Loebs also added Constructivist pieces from the first decades of the twentieth century. Liquid Reflections (1967), a kinetic light sculpture by the American artist Liliane Lijn (*1939), supplied the title for the exhibition and the book. It articulates what it is that makes up the character of the collection: liquefaction and the dissolution of boundaries. What was previously a painting or a sculpture has been re-discovered, re-materialized, and re-interpreted. This catalogue gives readers a look at the creation of the collection, whose more than 350 works of art are on permanent loan to the Kunstmuseum Bern. It also contains an index of works, introduces highlights from the collection, and describes the experimental new beginnings of art at that time. Exhibition: Kunstmuseum Bern, Switzerland (27.10.2017-28.01.2018)
