Cezanne and the dawn of modern art by Paul Cézanne( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cezanne and the Dawn of Modern Art presents selected paintings by Paul Cezanne alongside works by younger artists that reveal the powerful influence of the founder of modern painting. The driving forces in the reception of Cezanne's art were not art critics or art historians, but rather other artists: primarily the Fauves - led by Matisse, de Vlaminck, and Derain - and the Cubists - including Picasso, Braque, and Leger - all of whom absorbed and elaborated on Cezanne's revolutionary ideas about color and composition." "Against this background of Cezannisme, the book presents key works by Cezanne and younger artists in revealing juxtapositions. Readers will discover analogies and variations between the works of the "father of modern art" and those of his successors in series of related motifs - portraits, still lifes, and landscapes - a compact history of the icons of modern art."--Jacket
Alfred Seiland, Imperium Romanum : opus extractum by Marcus Carl Trier( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many years now, Alfred Seiland (*1952 in St. Michael, Austria) has been visiting antique sites around the Mediterranean, capturing them with his analogue, large-format camera. His destinations are the ruins of the Roman Empire from Egypt, Libya, and Israel to Italy, and the museums of Spain to Turkey. His motifs are often difficult to access-some are not public places and otherwise hidden from tourists. Seiland's photographs confront the viewer with themes that shed light on the conflict between antiquity and modernity. They mirror famous showplaces of history with their architecture, sculpture, and works of art. Alfred Seiland condenses moments into perfect compositions, employing color like a painter. Nevertheless, some of the photographs are unsettling, because they time and again tell of the destruction by humans of antique legacies.0Exhibition: Römisch-Germanisches Museum, Cologne, Germany (7.11.2013-30.3.2014) / Musée National d'Histoire et d'Art, Luxemburg (October 2013 - February 2014)

Gods and heroes of the European Bronze Age by Kaitē Dēmakopoulou( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bronze Age is one of the most important periods in the prehistory of Europe. Beginning around the mid-3rd millennium BC, its legacy can be found in spectacular monuments and artifacts across the continent, from Wessex in Britain to Knossos and Mycenae in Greece, and Troy in Asia Minor, extending to Maikop in the Caucasus. It was an age that saw the spread of a new technology - metallurgy - which was to have profound effects on the development of civilization in Europe. The use of bronze for tools and weapons was accompanied by other great transformations, such as specialized craftsmanship, a rise in exchange and trade, and increasing social stratification and political organization. Another innovation was the first appearance of writing in Europe - the Bronze Age thus also witnessed the birth of European history." "Gods and Heroes of the European Bronze Age is published to accompany a major exhibition that includes more than 250 of the finest objects from sites in twenty-three European countries."--Jacket

The Klee universe by Paul Klee( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are artists whose métier is the observation or documentation of the world, and artists who set the world aside altogether to build their own visionary cosmology, designing its constituent parts from scratch as a personal mythology relayed in motifs. Paul Klee (1879-1940) was such an artist, as his aphorism "Art does not reproduce the visible, rather it makes visible" testifies, and The Klee Universe addresses his work from this perspective. In 1906, Klee noted in his diary, "All will be Klee," and in 1911, as the encyclopedist of his cosmos, he began to meticulously chronicle his works in a catalogue that, by the time he died, was to contain more than 9,000 items. Here, in the fashion of an Orbis Pictus or a Renaissance emblem book, Klee's oeuvre is made legible as a cogent entirety, in thematic units address: the human life cycle, from birth and childhood to sexual desire, parenthood and death; music, architecture, theater and religion; plants, animals and landscapes; and, finally, darker, destructive forces in the shape of war, fear and death. The Klee Universe reimagines the artist as a Renaissance man, an artist of great learning whose cosmos proves to be a coherent system of ideas and images

Bauhaus conflicts, 1919-2009 : controversies and counterparts( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only an idea has the power to spread so far." Ludwig Mies van der Rohe The Bauhaus, one of the icons of modernism, was controversial from the start--not only because of internal strife, but also due to critique or enmities from the outside. And the controversy did not end with the closure of the Bauhaus itself. Yet nothing else revealed Bauhaus ideas and ideology as well as these confrontations did. Through them, the basic issues of the modernist program became clear. It became obvious that there was no such thing as one kind of modernism, just as there was no ONE Bauhaus; instead, there were different, contradictory, and even oppositional movements and positions: the Bauhauses. Few cultural movements have been as politically instrumentalized as the Bauhaus has. These controversies reflect the relationship between politics and culture in the twentieth century, and hence, the history of the construction of German identity
