A butterfly journey : Maria Sibylla Merian, artist and scientist by Boris Friedewald( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The amazing story of the life and work of the renowned botanical artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) is told alongside her beautiful illustrations of butterflies in this elegant book. A woman ahead of her time, she was an intrepid explorer, naturalist, scholar, as well as a magnificent artist. This book tells Merian's incredible life story alongside colorful reproductions of her engravings and watercolors of the butterflies she encountered during her lifetime in Germany and the Netherlands, and her seminal trip to the Dutch colony of Surinam. The book recounts her monumental expedition, her work as an advocate for the slave laborers of Suriname, and her important studies of the anatomy and life cycle of the butterfly. Author Boris Friedewald employs Merian's favorite insect as a metaphor for the artist's own pioneering evolution from budding entomologist to educator, activist, and artist.--
Karel Teige : captain of the avant-garde by Rea Michalová( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art theorist and critic, graphic designer, artist, author and translator Karel Teige is today recognized not just as the creator of internationally acclaimed surrealist collages, but also as a leading figure of the European avant-garde. Teige spent his entire life commenting on and interpreting developments in the visual arts. His multifaceted theoretical writings helped shape the conceptual foundations of modern art, and his activities and intensive contacts with other members of the European avant-garde helped secure Czech art's place on the international art scene. His work anticipated, initiated and helped to develop the progressive artistic movements that fundamentally influenced art in the 20th century. This comprehensive, nearly 800-page monograph, by the art historian Rea Michalová, takes a wide-ranging look at the evolution of Teige's ideological, theoretical and political views, and recalls important moments in his life and their significance within the international context. The book includes a rich set of illustrations, photographs from his life, and examples of his unique collages and graphic designs

1 edition published in 2014 in Czech and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novátorovi Jaroslavu Rösslerovi (1902-1990) vyšla další monografie. Konstruktéra obrazových básní oceňuje jako jednoho z velikánů světové avantgardy.

Tvůrce se nevzdal abstrakce ani v epoše, kdy platila za činnost nepřátelskou komunistickému režimu a nemohl ji vystavovat
