Fin-de-siècle Vienna : politics and culture by Carl E Schorske ( Book )
55 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Landmark book from one of the truly original scholars of our time: a magnificent revelation of turn-of-the-century Vienna where out of a crisis of political and social disintegration so much of modern art and thought was born. "Not only is it a splendid exploration of several aspects of early modernism in their political context; it is an indicator of how the discipline of intellectual history is currently practiced by its most able and ambitious craftsmen. It is also a moving vindication of historical study itself, in the face of modernism's defiant suggestion that history is obsolete." -- David A. Hollinger, History Book Club Review "Each of [the seven separate studies] can be read separately..Yet they are so artfully designed and integrated that one who reads them in order is impressed by the book's wholeness and the momentum of its argument." -- Gordon A. Craig, The New Republic "A profound work..on one of the most important chapters of modern intellectual history" -- H.R. Trevor-Roper, front page, The New York Times Book Review "Invaluable to the social and political well as to those more concerned with the arts" -- John Willett, The New York Review of Books "A work of original synthesis and scholarship. Engrossing." -- Newsweek From the Trade Paperback edition

Thinking with history : explorations in the passage to modernism by Carl E Schorske ( Book )
18 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Schorske begins by reflecting on his own vocation as it was shaped by the historical changes he has seen sweep across political and academic culture. Then he offers a European sampler of ways in which nineteenth-century European intellectuals used conceptions of the past to address the problems of their day: the city as community and artifact; the function of art; social dislocation. Narrowing his focus to fin-de-siecle Vienna in a second group of essays, he analyzes the emergence of ahistorical modernism in that city. Against the background of Austria's persistent, conflicting Baroque and Enlightenment traditions, Schorske examines three Viennese pioneers of modernism - Adolf Loos, Gustav Mahler, and Sigmund Freud - as they sought new orientation in their fields."--Jacket
Explorations in crisis; papers on international history by William L Langer ( Book )

Egon Schiele : the Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky collections by Egon Schiele ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. A superb draftsman and colorist, he produced images of startling emotional power. Following the lead of his mentor Gustav Klimt, Schiele created figurative works of uncanny intimacy and brought a new openness to the art of his time. Schiele's death at the age of 28 has added a mythic quality to his artistic achievements." "This publication accompanies the exhibition Egon Schiele: The Ronald S. Lauder and Serge Sabarsky Collections, which presents paintings and drawings from the collections of the co-founders of Neue Galerie New York. Together, these collections comprise the finest gathering of works by Schiele in the United States." "Essays examine the artist's reception history in American and Austria, the censorship of his art during and after his lifetime, and the lost Schiele collections. This publication also traces, for the first time, Schiele's enormous influence on contemporary culture."--BOOK JACKET

Budapest and New York : studies in metropolitan transformation, 1870-1930 ( Book )
6 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What comes across most strikingly in these essays is New York's cultivation of social and political pluralism, a trend not found in Budapest. Nationalist ideology exerted tremendous pressure on Budapest's ethnic groups to assimilate to a single Hungarian language and culture. In contrast, New York's ethnic diversity was transmitted through a mass culture that celebrated ethnicity while muting distinct ethnic traditions, making them accessible to a national audience

Beschrijving van Wenen ten tijde van de overgang van de 19e naar de 20e eeuw. Uit de chaos en desintegratie van Wenen aan het einde van de 19e eeuw werd veel van onze moderne kunst geboren. De grote intellectuele en artistieke vernieuwers braken, meer of minder bewust, met het verleden. Er wordt met name ingegaan op de relatie tussen politiek en cultuur. Aan de orde komen onder andere de schilderkunst van Gustav Klimmt en Oskar Kokosehka en de architectuur van Otto Wagner
