Gustav Klimt : painting, design and modern life by Gustav Klimt( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) remains one of the most popular artists of the early 20th century. Published to accompany a major exhibition at Tate Liverpool, a highlight of that city's 2008 Capital of Culture celebrations and the first such show in the UK, Gustav Klimt explores the life and work of an intriguing figure at the heart of the cultural transformation of Vienna around 1900." "Central to the book is the first thorough examination of the relationship between Klimt's paintings and the work of his close friend the architect and designer Josef Hoffmann. Reaching beyond the two-dimensional arts, it hails the advent of an all-inclusive design culture that embraced interiors, furniture, clothing and jewellery. Essays by leading scholars and curators consider key works, events and developments: the founding of the Viennese Secession, the inaugural display of the Beethoven Frieze, and a series of collaborative ventures in the creation of total domestic environments for the pursuit of 'modern life', among them the Villa Waerndorfer in Vienna and the Villa Primavesi in rural northern Moravia. In addition, Klimt is assessed as both an accomplished erotic draughtsman and a seductive landscape painter."--Jacket

Magritte A to Z by René Magritte( Book )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Belgian painter, printmaker, sculptor, and filmmaker Rene; Magritte (1898-1967) was one of the leading figures in the Surrealist movement, producing some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. His trademark flat, inexpressive manner, combining apparently mundane, everyday scenes with elements of the fantastic or erotic, created a disturbing, dreamlike atmosphere that is all his own. He remained faithful to Surrealism throughout his career and developed a vocabulary of symbols--floating rocks, bowler-hatted men carrying umbrellas, incongruous nudes, concealed or shrouded faces--that is among the most recognizable in modern painting. This book explores the full scope of Magritte's work through the format of an A to Z, fully illustrated in color, with entries written by a range of international scholars. The entries under the letter A alone--Absence, Abstraction, Appropriation, Anonymity, Artifice, Automatism, and Automatic Writing--show how this approach reveals and explores the themes and motivations in this most enigmatic artist's work

Gustav Klimt : the complete paintings by Gustav Klimt( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During his lifetime, Klimt was a controversial star whose works made passions run high; he stood for Modernism but he also embodied tradition. His pictures polarized and divided the art-loving world. Journalists and general public alike were split over the question: For or against Klimt? The present publication therefore places particular emphasis upon the voices of Klimt's contemporaries via a series of essays examining reactions to his work throughout his career. Subjects range from Klimt's portrayal of women to his adoption of landscape painting in the second half of his life. The cliche that Gustav Klimt was a man of few words who rarely put pen to paper is vehemently dispelled: no less than 231 letters, cards, writings and other documents--all known Klimt correspondence--are included in this monograph. This wealth of archival material, assembled here for the first time on such a scale, represents a major contribution to Klimt scholarship"--Publisher's description
Sylvette, Sylvette, Sylvette : Picasso and the model by Christoph Grunenberg( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of Pablo Picasso's most important muses is the subject of this diverse and beautiful collection of drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs, and ceramics. She was known as 'the girl with the ponytail' and her image has become one of the art world's most iconic. Sylvette David was a shy girl when she met Picasso on the Côte d'Azur in the spring of 1954. For the artist, Sylvette represented the ideal beauty of the time and she was his model for numerous works that covered nearly every aspect of his oeuvre. This book brings together the series of more than fifty masterpieces culled from museums and private collections from around the world. It further provides a unique insight into Picasso's art of the 1950s and the culture of the time."--
