Emperor Maximilian I and the age of Dürer( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Maximilian's most important legacies is the work created in his honour by some of the greatest artists of his time, most notably Albrecht Dürer. Today many of these works reside in the Albertina Museum in Vienna, and they are featured in this elegant volume. In addition to works by Dürer, the book includes reproductions of the extraordinary Triumphal Procession of Albrecht Altdorfer and his workshop, and the monumental woodcut Triumphal Arch. This book explores the artistic culture of Maximilian's era, with numerous examples from the Albertina's own collection as well as painted portraits, exquisite illuminated manuscripts, precious sculptures and splendid tapestries from some of the world's leading museums. Brought together in this elegant volume, these works offer valuable insight into Maximilian's public relations "machinery." Exhibition: Albertina, Vienna, Austria (14.9.2012-6.1.2013)

Max Ernst retrospective by Max Ernst( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Max Ernst (1891-1976) is one of the most versatile artists of the modern era. Starting out as a Dadaist in Cologne, he soon became one of the pioneers of Surrealism in Paris. In his persistent discovery of new figures, forms, and techniques, Ernst continued to reorient himself throughout his life, creating a unique body of work whose development was influenced by his eventful life and changing domiciles in Europe and America. The ingenuity in his treatment of the sources of his paintings and inspiration, the different stages of his work, and the changing themes are stunning. The publication shows the wealth of the artist's oeuvre in an exemplary selection of around 170 paintings, drawings, collages, and sculptures, making it possible to experience his approach, which involved drawing on the past, the current political events of the day, and a prophetic, visionary view of the future."--Publisher's website
Magritte A to Z by René Magritte( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Belgian painter, printmaker, sculptor, and filmmaker Rene; Magritte (1898-1967) was one of the leading figures in the Surrealist movement, producing some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. His trademark flat, inexpressive manner, combining apparently mundane, everyday scenes with elements of the fantastic or erotic, created a disturbing, dreamlike atmosphere that is all his own. He remained faithful to Surrealism throughout his career and developed a vocabulary of symbols--floating rocks, bowler-hatted men carrying umbrellas, incongruous nudes, concealed or shrouded faces--that is among the most recognizable in modern painting. This book explores the full scope of Magritte's work through the format of an A to Z, fully illustrated in color, with entries written by a range of international scholars. The entries under the letter A alone--Absence, Abstraction, Appropriation, Anonymity, Artifice, Automatism, and Automatic Writing--show how this approach reveals and explores the themes and motivations in this most enigmatic artist's work

Picasso : painting against time by Pablo Picasso( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, edited by Werner Spies, former director of the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the most important Picasso expert of our day, examines almost two hundred works - paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures - shedding light on the special work methods and dialectics in Picasso's late work. The exciting dialogue between painting and drawing, as well as the varying tempi employed by Picasso in Mougins, show that the greatest artist of the twentieth century was engaged in a race against time."--Jacket
Bosch, Brueghel, Rubens, Rembrandt : masterpieces of the Albertina by Graphische Sammlung Albertina (Wien)( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and German and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Albertina owns one of the world's most important collections of Netherlandish drawings dating from the period 1430 to 1650, including outstanding individual specimens from the circles around Jan van Eyck, Petrus Christus, or Dirk Bouts. Works by Hieronymus Bosch and Pieter Brueghel the Elder form one of the first highlights of this select collection. The rest of the sixteenth century is exemplified by masterful drawings by artists such as Jan Gossaert, Maarten van Heemskerck, and Hendrick Goltzius. The focus of the collection, however, is Holland's "Golden Age," the seventeenth century, with important works by Rembrandt van Rijn and his school. The southern Netherlands, once dominated by the House of Hapsburg, is represented by the most famous Flemish masters of the age: Peter Paul Rubens, Anton van Dyck, and Jacob Jordaens."--Publisher's website
