A butterfly journey : Maria Sibylla Merian, artist and scientist by Boris Friedewald( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in German and English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The amazing story of the life and work of the renowned botanical artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) is told alongside her beautiful illustrations of butterflies in this elegant book. A woman ahead of her time, she was an intrepid explorer, naturalist, scholar, as well as a magnificent artist. This book tells Merian's incredible life story alongside colorful reproductions of her engravings and watercolors of the butterflies she encountered during her lifetime in Germany and the Netherlands, and her seminal trip to the Dutch colony of Surinam. The book recounts her monumental expedition, her work as an advocate for the slave laborers of Suriname, and her important studies of the anatomy and life cycle of the butterfly. Author Boris Friedewald employs Merian's favorite insect as a metaphor for the artist's own pioneering evolution from budding entomologist to educator, activist, and artist.--
Picasso's animals by Boris Friedewald( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautifully designed book is filled with illustrations and photographs of the many animals in Picasso's life--those he painted and drew, as well as those he loved. One of the few under-examined aspects of Picasso's life and work was his love of animals. The son of a pigeon breeder and an aficionado of bullfighting, Picasso had an eye trained for capturing an animal's movement, shape, and personality--often with just a single line. Organized around the different types of animals that played a role in the artist's life and body of work--from his beloved dachshund, Lump, to dogs, cats, camels, penguins, pigs, and doves, among others--each chapter offers personal accounts, amusing anecdotes, and wondrous works of art

Dali's moustaches : an act of homage by Boris Friedewald( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether curled into a figure 8 or splayed like a cat's whiskers, Dali's moustache is arguably the world s most famous facial hair. But when asked to explain why he styled it in such bizarre and seemingly comic fashion, the artist remarked that his moustache was the most serious part of his personality. In this book, Boris Friedewald tells the life story of the renowned Spanish Surrealist through the various moustache styles he had throughout his life. Dali cultivated his moustaches he staged them and had them photographed. But these were more than mere vanity projects. Dali s evolving facial hair signifies certain points in the artist's own metamorphosis and was a kind of antenna of his metaphysical inspiration. Illustrated with many intriguing photographs of the artist and his ever-changing moustache, this book describes how Dali cared for and styled his facial hair, and shows how it influenced many artists in his wake from Ringo Starr to Lady Gaga. Filled with anecdotes and engaging commentary about Dali s work, this book offers readers a fascinating new way of looking at the artist, his life, and his legacy."--

Das Bauhaus in Kalkutta : eine Begegnung kosmopolitischer Avantgarden ; [anlässlich der Ausstellung ... vom 27. März bis 30. Juni 2013 am Bauhaus Dessau] by Regina Bittner( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Bauhausausstellung in Kalkutta 1922 war im internationalen Kunstbetrieb ein einmaliges Ereignis - ein Aufeinandertreffen künstlerischer wie intellektueller Verwandtschaften. Die westliche Moderne, die nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg auf der Suche nach geistiger und künstlerischer Erneuerung war, traf auf ihr indisches Pendant, das sich von den kolonialen Zwängen kulturell emanzipiert hatte. Werke von Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger und Johannes Itten sowie von weiteren Bauhauskünstlern wurden bei diesem ersten internationalen Auftritt des Bauhauses neben Arbeiten moderner indischer Künstler wie Nandalal Bose, Sunayani Devi sowie Abanindranath und Gaganendranath Tagore präsentiert. Die Publikation zeigt auf, wie es zu dieser außergewöhnlichen Begegnung kam und stellt die damalige Ausstellung als exemplarischen Fall für eine Kunstgeschichte vor, die statt über westöstliche Transmissionen zu berichten, über gemeinsame Visionen schreibt

The Bauhaus in Calcutta : an encounter of cosmopolitan avant-gardes by Bauhaus( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bauhaus exhibition in Calcutta in 1922 was a unique experience on the international art scene--a meeting of artistic and intellectual affinities. On a search for renewal after World War I, Western modernism encountered its Indian counterpart, which had emancipated itself from colonial constraints. At the Bauhaus's first international show, works by Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, Johannes Itten, and other Bauhaus artists were presented alongside those of modern Indian artists such as Nandalal Bose, Sunayani Devi, and Abanindranath and Gaganendranath Tagore. This publication gives an account how this unusual encounter came about and presents the exhibition as an exemplary case of art history that dealt with shared visions rather than transmissions from the West to the East

Neue Meisterhäuser in Dessau, 1925-2014 : Debatten. Positionen. Kontexte( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bei der Bombardierung von Dessau versanken im Frühjahr 1945 auch das Direktorenhaus und das Meisterhaus Moholy-Nagy in Schutt und Asche. Nachdem in den 1990er Jahren die Dessauer Meisterhaussiedlung – Inbegriff der Künstlerkolonie im 20. Jahrhundert – in ihren ursprünglichen Zustand zurückversetzt wurde, begann auch eine Debatte über den Wiederaufbau der beiden im Krieg zerstörten Häuser. 2010 wurde unter Beratung des englischen Stararchitekten David Chipperfield beschlossen, die Meisterhäuser Gropius und Moholy-Nagy nicht 1:1 wieder zu errichten, sondern mit zeitgenössischen Mitteln zu rekonstruieren. Und so sind sie nun in einer innovativen Reduktion und Abstraktion des jeweiligen Ursprungshauses nach Entwürfen des Berliner Büros Bruno-Fioretti-Marquez wiedererrichtet worden. Der Band beschreibt die wechselvolle Geschichte der Dessauer Meisterhaussiedlung und stellt die rekonstruierten Gebäude mit Fotografien von Armin Linke und Heidi Specker erstmals in Buchform vor
