Edward Hopper : portraits of America by Wieland Schmied ( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and German and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Edward Hopper was one of the finest American Scene painters in the Realist tradition. His passion was to portray "typical America"; his city- and landscapes are vivid reflections of the then contemporary American life. Several of his paintings, such as House by the Railroad (1925), Early Sunday Morning (1930), and Nighthawks (1942), have become icons of modern American art. They depict the loneliness, anonymity, and lack of variety in the daily life of ordinary people

Francis Bacon : commitment and conflict by Wieland Schmied ( Book )
18 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on a lifetime's experience of studying twentieth-century art, and on his personal encounters with the artist, Wieland Schmied presents a comprehensive portrait of Bacon the painter. Bacon the man is by no means overlooked, but Schmied does not allow details of the artist's private life to deflect him from his central purpose: to distil the essence of Bacon's art from a formal analysis of his paintings and from an examination of the creative processes they embody. Bacon's subtle use of space, the fundamental significance of photography in the development of his imagery, his idiosyncratic painting technique, his place in twentieth-century art as a whole, the role of homosexuality and the other autobiographical dimensions to his oeuvre - searching discussion of all these aspects results in a refreshingly independent view of a major artist
Caspar David Friedrich by Wieland Schmied ( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The art of Caspar David Friedrich (1774-1840) holds a special fascination. A unique figure in the age of Romanticism, Friedrich was as significant within the art of Germany as Eugene Delacroix was in France, or J. M. W. Turner in England. Yet his work was little known in its time, and after the artist's death it was long forgotten. Only in the twentieth century did it become apparent that Eugene Delacroix anticipated much of our modern experience of the world."--BOOK JACKET. "Friedrich painted strange, evocative scenes whose dark tones and ambiguous meanings seem to embody the very notion of the German Romantic visionary, yet at the same time they seem to look ahead to various modern styles. Scholars have pointed out the similarity between his paintings and the symbolic seascapes of Edvard Munch, and his atmospheric landscapes have an affinity with the work of the Impressionists, yet his use of isolated figures in a limitless expanse of space, dominated by an overwhelming sky, also evokes the sensibility of the Expressionists. Others have related his work to the intimacy of Paul Klee or the lyrical landscapes of Emil Nolde. And there is a fundamental connection between Friedrich's Romanticism and a current of abstract art in our century, allowing him to be compared with painters such as Mark Rothko."--BOOK JACKET
