The Nabis and intimate modernism : painting and the decorative at the fin-de-siècle by Katherine Marie Kuenzli( Book )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and Multiple languages and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of the ten years that define the Nabi movement (1890-1900), its principal artists included Edouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Paul S=rusier, and Paul Ranson. The author reconstructs the Nabis' relationship to Impressionism, mass culture, literary Symbolism, Art Nouveau, Wagnerianism, and a revolutionary artistic tradition in order to show how their painterly practice emerges out of the pressing questions defining modernism around 1900. She shows that the Nabis were engaged, nonetheless, with issues that are always at stake in accounts of nineteenth-century modernist painting, issues such as the relationship of high and low art, of individual sensibility and collective identity, of the public and private spheres

The anti-heroism of modern life : symbolist decoration and the problem of privacy in fin-de-siècle modernist painting by Katherine Marie Kuenzli( )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My dissertation treats intimacy and privacy in the painting of Edouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard, and Maurice Denis, and examines the possibilities and limits these terms offered to modernism. Rather than seeing the modernist cult of inferiority in terms of a simple reaction to--even a flight from--a series of crises and confusion in fin-de-siecle society, as so many studies on Symbolism have done, I argue that Symbolist decoration is best understood in terms of a dialectic between interior and exterior, public and private spheres, in which artists attempt to make individual subjectivity the basis of an elusive, and distinctly modern synthesis. By studying paintings, journals, personal correspondence, periodical literature, as well as contemporary literature and philosophy, I investigate how these artists conceptualized intimacy, and how their conceptualizations participated in larger intellectual currents. Ultimately, by foregrounding privacy and interiority as problems central to modernism, my dissertation challenges a historiographic tradition which has equated artistic progress with public battles and controversies

HENRY VAN DE VELDE : designing modernism by Katherine Marie Kuenzli( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The painter, designer, and architect Henry van de Velde (1863-1957) played a crucial role in expanding modernist aesthetics beyond Paris and beyond painting. Opposing growing nationalism around 1900, he sought to make painting the basis of an aesthetic that transcended boundaries between the arts and between nations through his work in Belgium, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. Van de Velde's internationally recognized designs for homes, museums, and theaters are often associated with Art Nouveau and the Jugendstil; after 1900, he helped define the fields of modern architecture and design in the German Werkbund. He also laid the groundwork for the Bauhaus, which grew out of the applied and fine art schools he designed in Weimar. When van de Velde was exiled from Germany after the outbreak of World War I, he recommended that Walter Gropius succeed him as the director of the school. This long-awaited book, the first major work on van de Velde in English, positions him firmly as one of the 20th century's most influential practitioners of design and architecture and a crucial voice within the modern movement
