Degenerate art : the attack on modern art in Nazi Germany, 1937 by Olaf Peters( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Während der NS-Diktatur in Deutschland wurde ein großer Teil der modernen Kunst als "entartet" diffamiert und die Künstler und deren Förderer aufs Massivste verfolgt. Verfemt wurden Werke, die nicht mit den nationalsozialistischen Idealen und volkspädagogischen Interessen vereinbar waren. Die Verurteilung erstreckte sich auch auf kommunistische und jüdische Künstler und auf nahezu alle großen Kunstströmungen: Expressionismus, Dada, Neue Sachlichkeit, Surrealismus, Kubismus und Fauvismus. Verfemte Künstler waren u. a. Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, Otto Dix, Lovis Corinth, Max Ernst und Oskar Kokoschka. 'Degenerate Art' beschreibt die 1937 in München stattfindende Ausstellung Entartete Kunst, die den Angriff auf die moderne Kunst in Gang setzte. Sie wurde in der Nähe vom damaligen "Haus der Deutschen Kunst" gezeigt, in dem zeitgleich die erste Große Deutsche Kunstausstellung stattfand, die Künstler ausstellte, die vom NS-Regime offiziell anerkannt waren. Weitere Themen im Buch sind die Entstehung und Entwicklung des Begriffs "Entartete Kunst", Details zur nationalsozialistischen Kunstpolitik sowie die Nachwirkungen des Angriffs auf die moderne Kunst.0Exhibition: Neue Galerie New York, USA (13.03.-30.06.2014)

Liebhaber ohne Adresse Briefwechsel 1942-1992 by Elias Canetti( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in German and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zwei große Künstler begegnen sich im Exil: Die Malerin Marie-Louise von Motesiczky und der Schriftsteller Elias Canetti, die beide aus Nazideutschland nach London geflüchtet waren, lernen sich in Amersham kennen. Die Künstlerin aus reichem Hause unterstützt den bettelarmen Dichter, die beiden machen sich Mut in ihrem Schaffen - und verlieben sich. Über fünfzig Jahre erstreckt sich die spannungsreiche Geschichte, lebhaft schildern die Briefe, wie die Geflüchteten in der Nachkriegszeit in ihrem Gastland heimisch werden. Der Briefwechsel aus fünf Jahrzehnten ist das Zeugnis einer großen Liebe. "Nein, ein edler Mensch war er nicht, dieser Elias Canetti. Die Briefe, die er an die Malerin Marie-Louise von Motesiczky geschrieben hat, die über vierzig Jahre lang seine Geliebte war, zeigen einen Menschen, dessen hemmungslose Egomanie und berechnende Falschheit einen schon ziemlich fassungslos machen können ... Canettis übersteigertes Selbstbewusstsein, das sich in diesen Briefen an Marie-Louise gänzlich ungebremst ausplaudert, steht jenem des von ihm verabscheuten Napoleon in nichts nach. Wie dieser ist Canetti in seiner Kleinheit unersättlich nach Überlegenheit, nach Kompensation durch Macht und Ruhm - auch Literatenruhm ist ja Macht. Krankhaft auf "Größe" fixiert, findet er die eigene Größe nie genug gewürdigt und fühlt sich, wenn andere als er mit dem Lorbeer geschmückt werden, tief verletzt und straft sie mit Verachtung ... Es war der Bildhauer Alfred Hrdlicka, der einmal über seinen Freund Canetti äußerte: "Er hat Augen wie ein Menschenfresser."Und Peter von Matt rückte sogar Canettis fast maßloses Verehrungsbedürfnis in diese prekäre Sphäre: "Sein Verehren war ein Verzehren."Sein Lieben war es wohl nicht weniger. Widerspruchsvoll war alles an Canetti. Er, der alle Erscheinungen des Lebens unter dem Aspekt der Macht betrachtete, war geblendet von ihr und bekämpfte sie zugleich" (ZEIT)
Marie-Louise von Motesiczky, 1906-1996 : a catalogue raisonné of the paintings ; with a selection of drawings by Ines Schlenker( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marie-Louise von Motesiczky was an artist whose life spanned almost the entire twentieth century. Her works were produced over a period of seven decades and range from the first small oil painting, Small Roulette, painted in 1924 when she was just 17 years old, to Still-Life, Vase of Flowers, which she was still working on in 1996, shortly before her death. Her oeuvre includes over 300 paintings, mostly portraits, self-portraits and still-lifes, and several hundred drawings." "Having begun a promising career in Vienna, Frankfurt, Berlin and Paris, a pupil and lifelong friend of Max Beckmann, Motesiczky was forced to leave her native Vienna by the rise of National Socialism, and flee to Britain. Here she rebuilt her life, to become one of the major Austrian painters of the twentieth century and one of the most important emigre artists in her adopted homeland." "The lavishly illustrated catalogue raisonne presents Motesiczky's entire painted oeuvre, alongside comparative illustrations, letters, diaries and contemporary photographs. Among her many friends were Oskar Kokoschka, Elias Canetti, Samuel Barber, Ernst Ginsberg and Iris Murdoch. Ines Schlenker's lively and engaging text reviews her life and career in the context of this most important period in the story of European art, and shows her to be one of the most fascinating artists of her age."--Jacket

Milein Cosman : capturing time by Ines Schlenker( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Highly regarded in England's classical music circles, Milein Cosman was a remarkable artist who drew primarily from life. Her portraits of fellow artists were fueled by her own passions for music, literature, and visual arts. This biography traces Cosman's entire life, starting with her childhood in Germany where drawing provided her with a much-needed mental escape, to her immigration to England before the war, and to her successful career as one of the most highly regarded illustrators in Britain. It also explores her marriage to musician and broadcaster Hans Keller and the fruits of their artistic collaboration. In addition to her drawings, this book features Cosman's paintings, sculptures, and prints. Also discussed is Cosman's remarkable drawing technique, which involved extremely rapid sketching completed in one sitting. Readers are treated to the full panoply of her works, including sketches of renowned figures such as Francis Bacon, T.S. Eliot, and Igor Stravinsky. Few artists have created an oeuvre that matches Cosman's range, quantity, and quality and this book shows why she remains a widely respected artist to this day
