Art deco by Norbert Wolf( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This sumptuous volume salutes everything art deco--from historically significant art and design through to the present day. The art deco style is so recognizable and widespread that its original influence on the culture in which it emerged has been all but lost in the clutter of imitation. This book draws our attention back to the birth of art deco--a period between two devastating world wars when industrialization was flourishing, interest in archaeology was peaking, and movements such as Cubism, Constructivism, Futurism, and Modernism were turning the art world on its head. Brilliantly designed to reflect the style it celebrates, Art deco is filled with hundreds of examples of painting, architecture, interiors, jewelry, crafts, furniture, and fashion. Author Norbert Wolf traces the chronology of the art deco style by looking at the politics and culture of Europe in the 1920s and early 1930s, and the artistic movements that paralleled its popularity. He follows art deco's influence in Europe and its immigration to the Americas and Asia. Most importantly, this wide-ranging volume looks beyond the era of art deco's origination to the present day. Pointing to the numerous revivals and contemporary echoes in painting and even literature, this beautiful volume demonstrates that art deco is alive and well today--often in forms where we least expect it"--Publisher website

Nordic painting : the rise of modernity by Katharina Alsen( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Delightful landscapes, idyllic genre scenes, light-flooded interiors, and atmospheric portraits: this richly illustrated book introduces the most important stylistic directions, artists, and works of Nordic painting. Concentrating on the period of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it centers on Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Iceland, but also considers the equally interesting Nordic regions of the Faroes, Greenland, and the German-Danish borderland ... Drawing from the most recent research, this extensive monograph addresses itself to various issues, including the interaction between Nordic and Central European artists and the development of modernism in Nordic art. At the same time, it opens up new perspectives on the present: a consideration of the works of contemporary artists such as Ragnar Kjartansson and Olafur Eliasson, which make both thematic and formal reference to the previous century, elucidates the enduring significance of Nordic art even today. -- publisher's statement

Art nouveau by Norbert Wolf( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now available in a new edition, this sumptuous volume explores key aspects of Art Nouveau -- decorative arts, architecture, fashion, dance, advertising, and more -- with an in-depth approach and stunning illustrations. The Art Nouveau movement became an international phenomenon at the beginning of the twentieth century that ushered in the era of modernity in almost every aspect of cultural life. For decades critics have argued that Art Nouveau was not an artistic period in its own right, but an amalgam of artists and styles that served as a bridge between neoclassicism and modernism. In this comprehensive, authoritative, and copiously illustrated book, art historian Norbert Wolf explores Art Nouveau as a logical outgrowth of the historic forces in which it arose. This book focuses on the movement's wide variety of applications and reclaims its prominence in the pantheon of modern art history. Chapters on aesthetics, spirituality, and the cult of beauty offer luminous examples of works by Mucha, Gaudí, Hoffmann, Klimt, Horta, Munch, and Tiffany, among many others. Wolf's text is both informed and accessible, providing an exciting narrative that brings the Art Nouveau movement into clear focus. Beautifully produced to appeal to a wide range of readers, this new edition gives one of the world's most popular styles the serious consideration it deserves
Giovanni Bellini : the art of contemplation by Johannes Grave( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the arc of Bellini's career, from his early devotional paintings to his later, occasionally secular works, this book offers an in-depth appreciation of the Venetian master who dominated the Early Renaissance. Featuring nearly every extant Bellini work, as well as those of his contemporaries, this book brims with gorgeous Renaissance art. Author Johannes Grave focuses on some of the artist's greatest works including Allegoria Sacra, the Brera Pieta, and the altarpiece of San Giobbe-to explore how Bellini excelled in tempera before mastering oil painting. Grave discusses how Bellini's precise lines, his delicate facial expressions, and the subtle effects of light and shadow were used in his religious paintings as well as his portraiture and late mythological depictions. The book examines Bellini's life, including his complex relationships with his father Jacopo, his brother Gentile, and his brother-in-law Andrea Mantegna. It considers the original contexts of Bellini's works, and elucidates the ways in which these paintings were meant to be perceived. It also links Bellini's devotional paintings with the poetic creations of his pupil Giorgione. An important contribution to the scholarship of Renaissance art, this book reaffirms Bellini's status as one of Venice's greatest painters
Dürer by Norbert Wolf( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on the latest research, this luxurious volume presents an exciting new interpretation of Dürer, both as a man and as an artist. Dürer's prints and drawings inspired centuries of artists both during his life and after his death. Yet his talent as a painter and colorist, and his enthusiasm for the scientific world have not been widely appreciated. Dürer's influence was both international and intergenerational; indeed Picasso claimed to have been inspired by the sixteenth-century artist. Reproduced in stunning detail and including illustrations of Dürer's most famous prints and drawings, a catalog raisonne of his paintings, and biographical research, this book presents a Dürer for the twenty-first century. Producing more self-portraits than any other artist of his day; mass marketing his best-selling prints; even inventing his own monogram logo; Albrecht Dürer was commercially astute long before today's generation of slick self-promoters and savvy mega-bucks artists. There are 55 extant Dürer's, of which 17 are in dispute. Using the very latest scientific research, this book puts all arguments to bed resulting in the definitive catalogue raisonne of the paintings. Not since 1971 has such a feat of painstaking research been attempted. After an almost 40-year wait, the truth behind the man and his art can finally be revealed
The golden age of Dutch and Flemish painting by Norbert Wolf( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Golden Age in Holland and Flanders saw incredible advances in the fields of commerce, science and art. Still lifes, landscapes and romantic depictions of everyday life became valued by wealthy Dutch merchants, while religious and historic paintings and portraits continued to appeal to the Flemish patronage. The Golden Age gifted the world some of the greatest masterpieces in history and this landmark volume showcases over 220 paintings reproduced to exceptional quality. The work of Rembrandt, Vermeer, Rubens and Van Dyck are considered in exacting detail. However, Norbert Wolf's fascinating narrative also explores Frans Hals' revolutionary portraiture, Jan Brueghel's velvety miniatures, Adriaen Brouwer's depictions of the working class at play and Hendrick Avercamp's lively winter landscapes. Wolf applies his vast understanding of the interplay between history, culture and art to explore the forces that led to the Golden Age in Holland and how this period influenced later generations of artist. He considers the complex political, religious, social and economic situation that led to newfound prosperity and, thus, to the enormous artistic output that we continue to enjoy today. The large format of this exceptional volume allows for the paintings to be reproduced in extraordinary detail: colours pop from the pages; landscapes sing and expressions are vivid and revealing. This new edition is presented in a slipcase illustrated with a wraparound reproduction of Vermeer's View of Delft, the most famous cityscape of the Dutch and Flemish Golden Age" -- OCLC

Fighting for visibility : women artists in the Nationalgalerie before 1919 by Yvette Deseyve( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exactly 100 years ago, the first women were allowed to participate in regular art courses at the Berliner Kunstakademie. While such a late date is no cause for celebration, it nonetheless offers the opportunity to consider the works of these women painters and sculptors, who triumphed against adversity to break into the art world and succeeded in having their works included in the Nationalgalerie's collection. Among them are Sabine Lepsius's self-conscious self-portrait, Maria Slavona's impressionistic view of the houses of Montmartre, and Caroline Bardua's spectacular paintings. Even more than the painters, the sculptors encountered opposition to their artistic activities. The powerful works of the German-American sculptor Elisabeth Ney and the Berlin artists Käthe Kollwitz and Renée Sintenis gave the lie to such prejudices. Alongside these well-known names, the exhibition also invites visitors to discover lesser known figures, some of whom are being shown in the Alte Nationalgalerie for the first time."--Provided by publisher
