Herbert Brandl by Herbert Brandl( Book )

"Herbert Brandl (*1959 in Graz) is one of today's most influential painters. His participation in the 1992 documenta IX in Kassel and the Biennale di Venezia in 2007 attests to his presence on the international scene. Ever since he took up the brush, Brandl's work has concentrated predominantly on the subject of landscape, although the pictures themselves alternate between the painterly abstract and the representational in terms of motif. Above all, from the time the artist started integrating the motif of the mountain into his work, he has produced abstract color-field paintings and powerful mountain landscapes side by side. This publication presents a number of works from the early eighties onward, accompanied by very new paintings created specifically for the retrospective. In addition, the book explores Brandl's affinity for the paintings of Albrecht ltdorfer, Titian, and Peter Paul Rubens in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, which have been a lasting inspiration for his creative work."--Publisher's website

Das Oeuvre des Biennale- und documenta-Teilnehmers ist geprägt von dem Interesse an Körperlichkeit und dem Ausloten von physischen und psychischen Erlebnissen. Die Liste der Publikationen zu einzelnen Werkgruppen ist fast solang wie die Liste der Museen und Sammlungen, die Kunstwerke von ihm besitzen. DuMont legt in Zusammenarbeit mit drei Museen und dem Archiv Franz West einen Band vor, der anhand von über 100 Schlüsselwerken erstmals einen umfassenden Blick auf das Gesamtwerk richtet. Ausstellung: Museum Ludwig, Köln, 12. Dezember 2009 - 14. März 2010; MADRE, Neapel, 14. Mai - 23. August 2010; Kunsthaus Graz, 24. September 2010 - 9. Januar 2011

A tribute to Franz West by Galerie Konzett (Wien)( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'A tribute to Franz West, ' all of those persons whom the artist considers a secret source, a "focus imaginarius," are brought to light. As the arc of participating artists describes Franz West's lifetime, its movement leads directly to that space of artistic productivity that constitutes West's history of reception and impact. The exhibited works thus also represent a panorama of "inner addressees" of the artist Franz West, which he also required for his production. In turn, the exhibition participants may also have needed a Franz West to objectivize for their part, in the form of the works shown here. Franz West was one of the most important international artists. He achieved worldwide fame with his "Paßstücke" (adaptives), his furniture and his sculptures for interior and exterior spaces.0Exhibition: Galerie Konzett, Wien, Austria (22.03-25.05.2013). 0
Franz West, works 1970-1985 : Collection Hummel, years spent together by Franz West( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before Franz West became an internationally renowned artist - and his immense work an object of desire for collectors, gallerists, and museums - he had worked on developing his materials, techniques, and motifs in precarious economic conditions and largely unnoticed by the Vienna art scene of the 1960s and '70s. This book, presenting a vast collection of unpublished early works, offers a fresh look at the genesis of West's oeuvre, his exploration of Beuys, Freud, and Wittgenstein and of the philosophy of language and trivial culture. He begins to use his 'private' handwriting as a visual element, toys with techniques and materials (drawing, collage, overwriting, stone, plaster, wood), seeks means of expressing his disgust with latent everyday fascism, and attempts to come to terms with his conflicts with authority and the law. In his later works, West, who provoked many ruptures and shifts during his career - which ultimately erupted into fame - elaborated many formal and conceptual decisions of his early works. Here, the book reveals something that has heretofore remained in the shadows: West's loyalty to himself and his beginnings as a troublemaking crossover artist
