America : the New World in 19th-century painting by Österreichische Galerie Belvedere( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A specifically American form of art emerged in the nineteenth century that was much more than just a reflection of European developments or stylistic trends. It was a period during which noteworthy local traditions were brought to light, and this is reflected in the selection of landscapes, portraits, and genre paintings contained in this volume, with a plate section including 146 works by 43 artists." "The works provide a comprehensive survey of American painting spanning more than one hundred years, from the close of the eighteenth century until World War I. In the context of their genre, these works demonstrate both the continuity and the breaks in the development of nineteenth-century American art and question the established art-historical narrative of American painting."--Jacket

Om den østrigske maler Gustav Klimt (1862-1918)
Alphonse Mucha by Alphonse Mucha( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfonse Mucha is known largely for having originated Art Nouveau, when his poster of the actress Sarah Bernhardt became a legendary icon of the movement. Mucha went on to design hundreds of pieces in the decorative arts field, but later distanced himself from the style he pioneered, devoting his time and energy to painting. This book presents the full array of Mucha's artistic contributions-not only his posters and jewelry designs but also his design for the pavilion of Bosnia and Herzegovina at the 1900 World's Fair. The book also includes his works on canvas, which include pastels and frescoes, and his magnum opus, The Slavic Epic, a series of 20 paintings depicting the history of his native people. A stunning selection of 700 color illustrations is accompanied with essays that explore Mucha's style and inspirations, his transition away from the decorative arts, and his forays into photography..."--Publisher description

15 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der berühmte Künstler Gustav Klimt wird hier gemeinsam mit dem Architekten und Gestalter Josef Hoffmann präsentiert. Die intensive Zusammenarbeit der beiden begann mit der Gründung der Wiener Secession 1897 und setzte bis zum Tod von Gustav Klimt neue Maßstäbe in Europa. Die Beethovenausstellung (1902) in der Wiener Secession sowie das Gesamtkunstwerk Palais Stoclet in Brüssel bilden Höhepunkte dieser Zusammenarbeit. Zahlreiche Werke, in denen sich Hoffmanns charakteristische Handschrift deutlich widerspiegeln, belegen die wechselseitigen Einflüsse dieser Pioniere der österreichischen Moderne, die dieser umfassende Überblick auch in Bezug zur Wiener Werkstätte untersucht.0Exhibition: Unteres Belvedere, Wien (25.10.2011-4.3.2012)

Gold by Gold( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the earliest days of human history, gold has stirred powerful passions in all who have beheld it. Its rarity, its brilliance and natural beauty, and its enduring associations with might and wealth have all ensured that it remains among the most treasured metals on earth. It should come as no surprise, then, that the path through art history is also often paved with gold. This opulently designed volume takes readers on a tour of gold in art from the second century to the present. Beginning with a gilded mummy portrait and series of religious-themed gold leaf backgrounds from late Antiquity, the book moves on to the use of gold in medieval art. From the Renaissance, the book presents exemplary interior and decorative arts. But the most extensive focus is on the use of gold in twentieth and twentieth-first-century art with a wide selection of works from, among many others, Willi Baumeister, Georg Baselitz, Victor Vasarely, Yves Klein, Andy Warhol, Max Weiler, Sylvie Fleury, Franz West, and George Condo. Together, the works demonstrate that, in contemporary art, the use of gold is not limited by theme, form, or style
Lawrence Alma-Tadema : at home in Antiquity by Lawrence Alma-Tadema( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This re-evaluation of the Dutch- born painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema traces his personal and artistic journey towards international fame and success in London and investigates how this exceptionally creative artist used his own houses and studios as laboratories to produce vivid paintings of life in ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Lawrence Alma-Tadema's paintings were immensely popular among his contemporaries, and have since enchanted a wide audience through the medium of cinema. Anyone who has ever enjoyed the great epic films of antiquity from Italian silent classics and Cecil B. DeMille to Ridley Scott's Gladiator will instantly recognize their origins in sets and costumes Alma-Tadema invented. Accompanied by glowing reproductions of the artist's rich and detailed works, this book boldly re-assesses Alma-Tadema's art through the idea of home: from his admiration for the interiors depicted in early Dutch paintings through his fascination with Pompeian ruins, to his creation of large studio houses that were artworks in their own right
Valie Export : Zeit und Gegenzeit = Time and countertime by Valie Export( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having quickly tired of life as an editor and extra in the Austrian film industry, in 1967 Waltraud Hollinger changed her name to Valie Export and plunged into the violent and often blood-soaked world of Viennese performance art and the extremist "Actions" of Hermann Nitsch, Günter Brus, Otto Mühl and Rudolf Schwarzkogler. Like them, Export subjected her body to pain, but where their work was inevitably drawn towards a religious idea of catharsis, Export politicized the inscription of women's bodies in terms of media representation, declaring her project as explicitly feminist. Export soon turned to video to record her performances and began to remove her person from her work, as in her now-famous 1971 video "Facing a Family." Today, across more than four decades of activity, Export has built a large and rigorous oeuvre comprising performance, photography, film and media installations. This volume surveys her career
Vienna - Berlin : the art of two cities( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the first to be devoted exclusively to the artistic parallels, divergences and interdependencies between Vienna and Berlin from the early twentieth century and into the interwar period. On the one hand was Berlin, a sprawling, ambitious metropolis with an almost American image and no historically evolved city center. On the other was Vienna, the city of the operetta, with its Baroque character and grand history. The point of departure is formed by the relationships, differences and commonalities between the two Secession groups around 1900. Even during Expressionism, Viennese art was characterized by psychological empathy, while the Berlin counterparts of this generation of artists cultiated gestures of ectasy or aggression. World War I led to greater proximity between the two nations, and to active artistic exchanges between them, for example in relation to the rise of New Objectivity. Gaining in importance at the same time in Vienna was Kineticism, whose counterpart in Berlin was the Dada movement, which confronted contemporary social issues in a critical and subversive manner, thereby engendering a type of anti-culture. While the images and perceptions of the two cities may contrast dramatically, this publication documents their creative symbiosis

The women of Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka by Agnes Husslein-Arco( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early twentieth century, the traditional relationship between the sexes was challenged by a number of social, economic, and philosophical changes. It was above all the incipient development towards gender equality and sexual liberation that upset the restrictive moral conventions of the nineteenth century. Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Oskar Kokoschka--then the three most outstanding painters of Viennese Modernism--approached the subject matter generally referred to as 'the woman question' from slightly different perspectives"--Jacket
Franz Xaver Messerschmidt, 1736-1783 by Franz Xaver Messerschmidt( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Messerschmidt, who created conventional portraits of dignitaries such as Empress Maria Theresa and Joseph II while working at the Imperial Academy in Vienna, began to turn exclusively to character heads in around 1770, a fact that quickly gained him the reputation of a maverick. This extensive monograph about an exceptional artist attempts an interpretation of the "deeper meaning" in an oeuvre which is as unusual as it is uncompromising."--Jacket
Awakening the night : art from Romanticism to the present by Brigitte Borchhardt-Birbaumer( Book )

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

This absorbing volume explores how artists have expressed their fascination with the night and its mysteries over two centuries. Delving deep into the subjects of philosophy, psychology, and astronomy, this beautifully illustrated and wide-ranging volume offers a chronological approach to understanding how artists of all kinds have dealt with the subject of nighttime. It opens with the early 19th century, focusing on the tension between romanticism and enlightenment, idealism and realism, beauty and science. It then goes on to explore the introduction of electricity, the subsequent illumination of urban spaces, and light pollution. Finally, it investigates contemporary images of places that come alive in the darkness: subways, mines, theaters, movie houses, and nightclubs. Filled with the work of renowned painters, photographers, sculptors, and filmmakers, the volume is enhanced by a series of insightful essays that help us understand how artists' depictions of nighttime have evolved in tandem with developments in technology, science, and philosophy

Emil Nolde : in radiance and color by Emil Nolde( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the earliest German expressionists and a member of the prolific yet short-lived secessionist movement Die Brücke, Emil Nolde produced many colorful paintings across his career, including portraits, religious tableaus, and landscapes depicting seasides and bustling Berlin street scenes. His work has been exhibited at major museums worldwide, including New York's Metropolitan Museum and Museum of Modern Art. With more than one hundred full-color reproductions and informative essays by Katharina Lovecky, Manfred Reuther, Andreas Fluck, Christian Ring, Stefan Koja, and Agnes Husslein-Arco, this book traces the development of Nolde's distinctive style and technique. From his ..."--Publisher description
Cubism, constructivism, form art by Österreichische Galerie Belvedere (Vienna)( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the 14th Vienna Secession exhibition in 1902 to the development of Constructivism in the 1920s, art in Austria- Hungary underwent a seismic change that challenged preconceptions, and broke the rules to shake up European Art. Tracing the evolution of art during this time period, this book makes valuable connections between the seemingly disparate Formkunst of Vienna, Cubism in Prague, and Hungarian Constructivism. Focusing on the works of artists such as Josef Hoffmann, Gustav Klimt, Josef Capek, Koloman Moser, Egon Schiele, Frantis Kupka, Lajos Kassa, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and drawing from the latest scholarly research, this book presents a fundamental reinterpretation of turn-of-the-century art as it flourished in the Habsburg Empire

Klimt and antiquity : erotic encounters( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustav Klimt's 1907 publication of his illustrated edition of Lucian's ancient work 'Dialogues of the Courtesans' was the first time he exhibited his erotic art to the public, and it led to his denouncement by censors disturbed by the work's graphic content. This volume revives Klimt's masterful book, which pairs his erotic drawings with Wiener Werksta tte design, and which arguably resulted in the Art Nouveau era's most beautiful book. Klimt and Antiquity also compares the red- and black- figure Attic vases dating from the 5th century with Klimt's art. It presents Klimt's antiquity-inspired art as a dialogue between contemporary and ancient art, between genders, and between women's roles in times of antiquity and modernity. Essays explore Klimt's interest in ancient art; the ancient role of the courtesan; and the phenomenon of the Greek symposium as fertile ground for Greek art.
