Cubism, constructivism, form art by Österreichische Galerie Belvedere (Vienna)( Book )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 164 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
Into the night : Cabarets and clubs in modern art by Florence Ostende( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the role of cabarets, clubs, and cafés in modern art. These creative spaces were incubators of radical thinking, in which artists could exchange provocative ideas. They were welcoming environments for artists, dancers, designers, writers, and musicians pushing the boundaries of cultural and social norms. Spanning the decades from the 1880s to the 1960s, this unique and multi-faceted illustrated history of alternative artistic spaces covers four continents and includes both famed and little-known sites of the avant-garde. Organized by city, it features painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, film, and archival material emanating from over a dozen cabarets, clubs, and bars that were home to the likes of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Loie Fuller, Josef Hoffmann, Giacomo Balla, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, Theo Van Doesburg, Jeanne Mammen, Jacob Lawrence, Ramon Alva de la Canal, and Ibrahim El-Salahi. It includes photographs of the interiors of the Chat Noir in Paris, the Cafe L'Aubette in Strasbourg and the Mbari Club in Nigeria; a cocktail menu from the Cabaret Fledermaus in Vienna; a 1930s night club map of Harlem; posters and invitations advertising performances at the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich and Mexico City's Cafe de Nadie; and countless artworks that emerged from these spaces conveying the energy and excitement of the time. A series of enlightening essays explore how each space fostered and stimulated new forms of artistic expression.

Makart : painter of the senses by Hans Makart( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hans Makart left his mark on his age like no other artist of the nineteenth century. He became the symbol of his time, which has gone down in history as the Makart Era. summoned to Vienna by the emperor as a talented young artist, his painting were popular among the rising bourgeoisie and were ultimately regarded as the measure of social recognition and reputation. Makart's free painterly use of color and light derives from French art, especially that of Eugene Delacroix. At the same time as Edouard Manet, Auguste Renoir, and Gustave Moreau he cultivated color as one of the core elements in his art. Through the accentuation of sensuality--of taste, eroticism, and a robust joie-de-vivre--he also struck the chord of decline and is thus a typical representative of the Age of Decadence. Makart was skilled in using the possibilities offered by new reproduction techniques to popularize his works and his own specific aesthetic. His images and theme became trademarks and reflections of his age and aroused national and international attention. Makart's artistic approach was open to experiment; it was evidenced in his intensive study of Richard Wagner's 'Ring de Nibelungen' and the architecture of Gottfried Semper, and it expressed itself in large-format painterly interpretations of the operas and in visionary architectural fantasies. Makart was highly respected internationally when he died in 1884 at the age of 44"--Jacket
Beyond Klimt : new horizons in Central Europe by Stella Rollig( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period between the two World Wars is characterised in the arts by international networks that transcended political and ideological borders. A lively artistic exchange took place, stimulating constructive, expressionist, and fantastic tendencies. An increasingly important role was played by magazines that disseminated new positions. The outbreak of World War II abruptly interrupted these cosmopolitan art networks. This publication examines the fascinating, artistically fruitful epoch between the wars.

Sünde und Secession : Franz von Stuck in Wien = Sin and secession : Franz von Stuck in Vienna by Franz von Stuck( Book )

8 editions published in 2016 in 3 languages and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Von Stucks Einfluss und seine Vorbildfunktion in Wien wurden bisher nur am Rande berücksichtigt. Dies ist überraschend, hatte er doch schon 1892 seine erste umfassende monografische Ausstellung im Wiener Künstlerhaus. Von Stuck, ein Jahr jünger als Gustav Klimt, war ein Shootingstar seiner Zeit und schon früh mit der bei Gerlach in Wien ab 1882 verlegten Mappe Allegorien und Embleme und den 1886 erschienenen Karten & Vignetten bekannt geworden. Der Katalog bietet die Möglichkeit, Franz von Stucks grafisches, malerisches und plastisches Werk und die von ihm verwendete Fotografie sowie die vielfachen Wirkungen seines Schaffens auf die Wiener Kunst zu betrachten." -- publisher's description

Formalisierung der Landschaft : Hölzel, Mediz, Moll u.a. by Alexander Klee( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit dem Katalogbuch widmet sich das Belvedere in der Reihe 'Meisterwerke im Fokus' dem programmatischen Thema "Formalisierung der Landschaft", welches sinnbildhaft die Schwelle zu Flächenkunst des Jugendstils markiert. Diese neue Landschaftsauffassung wies um die Jahrhundertwende einen Weg aus dem Impressionismus. Das immer wieder auftretende Motiv des Baumes, bzw. der Baumgruppe, wandelt sich von einer illusionistischen "Valeurmalerei" zu einer ornamental anmutenden Reduktion der Formen. Diese Bedeutung lässt sich vor allem im Werk von Adolf Hölzel sowie dessen Freunden und Schülern wie Carl Moll, dem Ehepaar Mediz und anderen entdecken. Hölzel fand im Dachauer Moor zu dieser Neuinterpretation des Topos Landschaft, aus der er 1901 die Konsequenz eines gewandelten Kunstverständnisses zieht. 0Exhibition: Belvedere, Vienna, Austria (28.5.-8.9.2013)

Stadt der Frauen : Künstlerinnen in Wien, 1900-1938 = City of women : female artists in Vienna, 1900-1938 by Silvie Aigner( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although overshadowed by their male colleagues, many important women artists carved out successful careers in early 20th-century Vienna. They exhibited across Europe and their work was acquired by royal, state, and private collectors. Their names, however, are largely unknown today and their masterpieces relegated to footnotes in history. Artists such as Elena Luksch-Makowsky, Helene Funke, Erika Giovanna Klien, Ilse Bernheimer, Maria Cyrenius, Friedl Dicker, Marie Egner, and Louise Fraenkel-Hahn are profiled in this book along with vibrant reproductions of their works. The remarkable stories of how many of these women found their way to Vienna from Germany, Russia, and beyond are enhanced by explorations of their contributions to such movements as Atmospheric Impressionism, Secessionism, Expressionism, Kineticism, and New Objectivity. This book shows how the ingenuity and perseverance of these artists enabled them not only to carve out a place alongside their more renowned male peers, but also to create their own associations and exhibitions and become a pivotal part of the Viennese Modernism movement."--
Egon Schiele : self-portraits and portraits by Egon Schiele( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Egon Schiele (1890-1918) is one of the most important Austrian artists of the twentieth century. This publication, produced to accompany an exhibition in the Belvedere, Vienna, is the first to focus on his portraits and self-portraits. Schiele was influenced by Gustav Klimt during his early career but soon discovered his own mode of expression. By the time of his premature death he had created an impressive oeuvre that concentrates on the depiction of the human figure. In his portraits, Schiele tried to portray his models' state of mind in visual terms, thereby following contemporary developments in psychoanalysis. His numerous self-portraits attest to the fact that the artist embarked on his exploration of human emotions by observing his own personality. Some 100 portraits and self-portraits document Schiele's artistic development and his extraordinary accomplishments as a portraitist. Confrontational and often explicitly erotic, they repeatedly provoked protest by testing the boundaries of traditional portraiture. Largely devoid of props or scenery, they reflect the artist's intensive study of the portrayal of emotional states. Schiele's examination of the self began with his own person: his self-portraits are fascinating glimpses inside the mind of an extraordinarily gifted artist as well as seminal works of originality and deep empathy with the human condition

Farbharmonie als Ziel : Adolf Hölzel auf dem Weg zum Ungegegenständlichen by Adolf Hölzel( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in German and Undetermined and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adolf Hölzel (1853-1934) zählt zu den frühen Protagonisten der Abstraktion und Wegbereitern der Malerei der Moderne. Zugleich Künstler und Pädagoge erreichte er mit der von ihm gegründeten Malerschule im Umkreis der Künstlerkolonie Dachau, wo Künstler wie Emil Nolde zu seinen Schülern zählten, große Anerkennung. Ab 1905 wandelte sich seine noch figurative Kunst und beinhaltete bald ein stets didaktisch und0theoretisch untermauertes Herangehen an die Abstraktion - als einer der Ersten bezeichnete er das Unbewusste als Potenzial für bildende Kunst. In faszinierenden Stationen wird die künstlerische Vielfalt seines Gesamtwerks dargestellt, Erstpräsentationen vieler Werke sowie fundierte Expertenbeiträge machen diesen Band zu einem unverzichtbaren Beitrag zur Geschichte der modernen Malerei.
