Women : Picasso, Beckmann, de Kooning : Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Regardless of the clichés associated with Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Max Beckmann (1884-1950), and Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) in the "public" private sphere, their exploration of the theme "woman" go far beyond one-sided definitions. Their portrayals of women are highly nuanced; they have a significance of their own and time and again become sensitive reflections of social and political problems and upheavals. They are not simply surfaces upon which are projected male longings and desires, but catalysts for a confrontation with the artist's own life and history (Picasso), while in Beckmann's work they are completely free, independent counter-images. De Kooning sees them as a separate force within which culminate opportunities for artistic expression. Contributions by art historians, authors, sociologists, and artists approach the theme from a variety of perspectives. Exhibition: Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany (30.3.-15.6.2012)

Faust, a tragedy by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( Book )

22 editions published between 1957 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend. He is a scholar who is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, so he makes a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. Faust and the adjective Faustian imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a delimited term. The Faust of early books - as well as the ballads, dramas, movies, and puppet-plays which grew out of them - is irrevocably damned because he prefers human to divine knowledge; "he laid the Holy Scriptures behind the door and under the bench, refused to be called doctor of Theology, but preferred to be styled doctor of Medicine". Plays and comic puppet theatre loosely based on this legend were popular throughout Germany in the 16th century, often reducing Faust and Mephistopheles to figures of vulgar fun. The story was popularised in England by Christopher Marlowe, who gave it a classic treatment in his play, The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus. In Goethe's reworking of the story two hundred years later, Faust becomes a dissatisfied intellectual who yearns for "more than earthly meat and drink" in his life. - Amazon (summary for a later edition of this title)

Der Begriff "Neue Sachlichkeit" wurde 1925 in der Kunsthalle Mannheim durch die gleichnamige Ausstellung von Gustav F. Hartlaub geprägt. Jetzt treten in Mannheim erstmals die beiden großen Künstlerpersönlichkeiten dieser Epoche - Otto Dix (1891-1969) und Max Beckmann (1884-1950) - in einen Dialog. Persönlich sind sie sich wohl nie begegnet, aber als Künstler treffen Dix und Beckmann gemeinsam den magischen Moment: wenn das Gewohnte plötzlich fremd wird und die Welt zum Mythos. Das Werk beider Maler zeichnet nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg und in Abgrenzung zum Expressionismus ein neuartiges Verhältnis zur Wirklichkeit aus. Dix ist mit seinem kritischen Superrealismus der Protagonist des sogenannten "linken Flügels" der Neuen Sachlichkeit, während Beckmann in der Balance von reiner Malerei und subjektiver Symbolik seine "transzendentale Sachlichkeit" entwickelt. 0Exhibition: Kunsthalle Mannheim, Germany (22.11.2013-23.03.2014) & Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung, Munich, Germany (11.04.-10.08.2014)
