Women impressionists by Ingrid Pfeiffer( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a comprehensive introduction to the works of four women Impressionists: Berthe Morisot, a key protagonist of the Impressionist movement; Mary Cassatt, who had her own special role to play in the movement and was held in high esteem by fellow painter Edgar Degas; Eva Gonzales, a gifted artist and Edouard Manet's only student; and Marie Bracquemond, who abandoned painting in the interests of marital harmony." "This superbly illustrated book also contains essays by a number of writers, who besides providing a knowledgeable introduction to these four women painters, also succeed in conveying to us the context in which they worked."--Jacket
László Moholy-Nagy retrospective by László Moholy-Nagy( Book )

14 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This companion volume to a retrospective features 170 works from all phases of Moholy-Nagy's career. Essays on his involvement with the Bauhaus School; his late paintings; his photographs, photograms, and photosculptures; and his accomplishments in the field of graphic art are complemented by numerous color illustrations. The book also documents the reconstruction of a never completed work, The Room of Today, which incorporates the most important themes Moholy-Nagy brought to his art. Readers viewing his work for the first time, along with those already possessing a deep appreciation for his art, will celebrate this long-overdue volume."
James Ensor by James Ensor( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Belgian painter James Ensor (1860-1949) created a body of work that is comical, ironic and profound, which can be interpreted in many ways.' To a large degree his work is self-referential, both foreshadowing and reflecting back upon itself and containing many simultaneous strands of development and parallel phenomena." "Ensor's unusual motifs, which became distinctive symbols for the absurdity of life, have fascinated and influenced other artists from all other periods since then in view of new tendencies in contemporary art such as the manifestation of the grotesque and comic, Ensor's work is yet again current. Featuring almost 80 masterpieces on canvas and over no works on paper-both drawings and prints - this monograph presents key works from all periods of his career. Special focus is given to the artist's later works, which have long been neglected by art historians."--Jacket

Esprit Montmartre : Bohemian life in Paris around 1900 by Ingrid Pfeiffer( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Removed from the glamour of Paris during the French Belle Époque, the village-like district of Montmartre offered a bohemian refuge for many poets and artists. Esprit Montmartre explores this rich period of artistic production, its sociopolitical contexts and how they continue to influence the image of the artist and his subjects today"--Provided by publisher
Richard Gerstl by Richard Gerstl( Book )

13 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 172 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

Splendor and misery in the Weimar Republic by Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the glamour of the Golden Twenties to the depths of the dark side of a world undergoing rapid change - the penetrating content of works by more than 60 artists recreates the age of the Weimar Republic, big - city life and the entertainment scene as well as the consequences of the First World War and socially controversial topics such as prostitution, political struggle and social tensions. As the first German democracy, the Weimar Republic (1918 - 1933) is regarded as a time of crisis and transition - from the German Empire to the totalitarian regime of National Socialism. Numerous artists not only portrayed these years in their realistic representations, which are ironical and grotesque as well as critical - analytical; they also aimed to comment on the stat us quo and bring about social change. Works from Otto Dix and George Grosz via Conrad Felixmuller and Christian Schad to Dodo, Jeanne Mammen, Elfriede Lohse - Wachtler, famous artists and others waiting to be rediscovered, paint a multi - layered and political picture of the Weimar Republic."

Glanz und Elend in der Weimarer Republik by Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Weimarer Republik (1918–1933) als erste deutsche Demokratie gilt als Zeit der Krisen und der Übergänge – vom deutschen Kaiserreich bis zum totalitären Regime im Nationalsozialismus. Zahlreiche Künstler haben in ihren realistischen, ironischen, grotesken bis kritisch-analytischen Darstellungen diese Jahre nicht nur abgebildet, sondern wollten die Zustände kommentieren und gesellschaftlich verändern. Mit Werken von Otto Dix und George Grosz über Conrad Felixmüller und Christian Schad zu Dodo, Jeanne Mammen, Elfriede Lohse-Wächtler und vielen anderen berühmten wie neu zu entdeckenden Künstlern und Künstlerinnen entsteht ein vielschichtiges und politisches Bild der Weimarer Republik

Yves Klein by Yves Klein( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yves Klein (1928-1962) was a truly visionary artist. The spectacular works and actions of the French artist and judo master attracted worldwide attention, which was further magnified by his untimely death. The product of a career that spanned a mere seven years, his multifaceted oeuvre anticipated such phenomena as happening and performance as well as Land, Body, and Conceptual Art. Art had no boundaries for Yves Klein. He became involved in architecture - at the practical level as the designer of the music theater in Gelsenkirchen and as a theorist with his ideas for air architecture. He also explored both aspects of immateriality and zones of pictorial sensibility." "The volume featuring full-color illustrations of more then one hundred works covers all of Klein's creative phases, from the first Monochromes in different colors to his famous blue paintings (I.K.B. - International Klein Blue) to his sponge reliefs and sculptures, the controversial anthropometries in which Klein used female models as "living brushes," his gold-leaf Monogolds and his last experiments with fire and the elements of nature." "Articles by seven authors shed light on the artist and his work from different perspectives. Comments on the man and his art by friends and contemporaries as well as a detailed biography accompanied by numerous documentary photographs showing Yves Klein in his working and living environment round out this presentation."--Jacket
