Kandinsky by Wassily Kandinsky( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents abstract Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944). It reproduces scores of recently rediscovered paintings that had languished for decades in Soviet museums and in private collections. The author provides new details on Kandinsky's life and art, discussing his little-known experimental stage plays which strove for a synthesis of all the arts, and his friendships with Paul Klee, Arnold Schonberg and composer Thomas von Hartmann, who introduced the artist to Sufism, the mystical offshoot of Islam. Most chapters include excerpts from Kandinsky's newspaper articles, essays and unpublished letters, creating the impression of a tolerant nonconformist who saw art as inseparably linked with the higher laws of the cosmos. The reproductions provide an exciting glimpse of Kandinsky's leap into abstraction after his early absorption of folk and religious art, fauvism and neo-impressionism

Vasily Kandinsky : a colorful life : the collection of the Lenbachhaus, Munich by Vivian Endicott Barnett( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Russia, Vasily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was one of the most original and influential artists to emerge in the twentieth century. He is known primarily for his daring use of color in startling non-objective works. Vasily Kandinsky: A Colorful Life is the most comprehensive and fully illustrated account to date of his early work, from 1900 to 1914, the period in which he made his radical shift to abstraction - and in so doing altered the very concept of art itself. The works presented here are from the collection of the city museum of Munich, or Stadtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus. They were given to the Galerie in 1957 by the artist Gabriele Munter, who was Kandinsky's companion from 1903 to the beginning of World War I. They are being shown at the Galerie in their entirety for the first time in a major exhibition, for which this book serves as the catalogue. In compelling, readable text that draws on the latest research, noted Kandinsky expert Vivian Endicott Barnett illuminates the life and work of the artist. She begins with sketches made during his student years in Munich and considers also his interest in folk art, myths and fairy tales, the small oil studies from nature, medieval scenes, woodcuts, glass paintings and landscapes he made before progressing to the first abstractions. Included as well are the important paintings from the series of Improvisations, Impressions, and Compositions, which are among the highlights of his involvement with the Blue Rider group, and later works from his Bauhaus and Paris years. This sumptuous book includes more than 700 examples of Kandinsky's early genius, most of them brilliantly reproduced in full color. The works are organized chronologically, and paintings are accompanied, when relevant, by preliminary sketches and prints."--Jacket
New worlds : German and Austrian art, 1890-1940 by Neue Galerie New York( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, the inaugural catalogue of the Neue Galerie New York, is the first book to bring to light the history of the works of fine and decorative artists of Germany and Austria between 1890 and 1940. Focusing on 26 visual artists and 18 decorative artists whose work is represented in the Neue Galerie New York collection, the catalogue offers an overview of their works and situates them within the history of their reception in twentieth-century America. It also tells the stories of the numerous museum officials, patrons, art dealers, and journalists who brought these artworks to the attention of the American public." "The catalogue illuminates the little-known facts of German and Austrian artists' reception in America through biographies that describe the highlights of their lives and careers as well as their presentations in the United States. A variety of catalogue essays examine such topics as the cultural context within which German and Austrian Expressionism arose, public response to museum presentations of German art, formalistic issues in Austrian decorative arts, aesthetic quests in the German decorative arts, and key moments in the American reception of German and Austrian decorative arts."--Jacket

Klee & Kandinsky : neighbors, friends, rivals by Vivian Endicott Barnett( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klee and Kandinsky were towering figures of the modernist movement and were close, both as friends and artists. For a time they lived next door to one another and exchanged their artistic ideas on a daily basis. This unique book explores their 30-year relationship, from the time of the Blue Rider group around 1912, through the Bauhaus years in Weimar and Dessau until the late 1930s. With the culture of the Weimar Republic as a backdrop, this book traces the eventful history of an artistic friendship. Kandinsky's idealism is juxtaposed with Klee's irony and we learn that their relationship was characterised in equal measure by friendship and competitiveness, mutual influence and the need to establish distance. The focus is on the artistic dialogue they enacted through their art. They were joined by an aspiration to spiritualise art and explore its intrinsic laws. At the same time, Kandinsky's commitment to abstraction contrasted strongly with Klee's allegiance to natural models
Alexei Jawlensky by Alexej von Jawlensky( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexei Jawlensky (1864-1941) was Russian, but lived in Germany much of his life and obtained German citizenship in 1934. He was a friend of Vasily Kandinsky, who he met in Munich when studying painting with Anton Azbè, and had close ties to the German Expressionist artists. This book illustrates how the artist was influenced, apart from the German Expressionists, by the art of Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse and the Fauves, and by Ferdinand Hodler. The book presents the chronological and thematic development of Jawlensky's art from early figure painting to landscapes and from still lives to the late iconic portraits and fascinating meditations
Franz Marc and August Macke 1909-1914 by Neue Galerie New York( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the five years Franz Marc and August Macke knew each other, the two men carried on an artistic and personal friendship that had an immense impact of each of their careers. This book traces their relationship and features meticulously reproduced images that bring their paintings--and the bond they shared--to life. In addition to paintings, watercolors, and drawings from both artists, this book includes objects and documents that show their connection to one another. A series of essays explore the artists' conversations about color theory and non-representational painting, their work with the Blue Rider group, their joint mural, Paradise, and the influence of French painters on their art. This book also reveals how 20th-century Expressionism evolved during Marc and Macke's collaboration. While celebrating the two men's obvious differences, this volume reveals how their differences served to deepen their friendship and how their distinct artistic styles influences one another"--Publisher's description
