Egon Schiele by Jane Kallir ( Book )
18 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and Italian and held by 1,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Egon Schiele ranks with Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka among the most influential painters to emerge from the cultural ferment that characterized Vienna at the turn of the century. Yet despite the appreciation of his art, the "real" Egon Schiele has remained elusive - like Vincent Van Gogh and Edvard Munch, precursors of Expressionism with whom he has often been mired in the myth of the tortured artist. His imprisonment on morals charges and his premature death, at the age of twenty-eight in 1918, have tended to dominate accounts of his life." "Jane Kallir, author also of Egon Schiele: The Complete Works (which includes a catalogue raisonne) and Abrams' volume Gustav Klimt, is co-director of the Galerie St. Etienne in New York. She bases her biography chiefly on first-hand sources, many of them previously unpublished. She offers new insights into Schiele's brief and sometimes troubled life: his childhood and early adulthood, his turbulent encounters with Vienna's patron class, his clashes with the Establishment - the notorious "prison incident" and his military service during World War I, his sexual escapades, and his ultimately disappointing marriage." "Interwoven with the story of the artist's life, Kallir unfolds a balanced presentation of his art - the mature and relatively placid pieces together with the turbulent Expressionist ones. Lavishly illustrated in color and duotone, this volume offers the reader text and pictures of the highest quality."--BOOK JACKET

From the Publisher: "Grandma Moses and her paintings first came to public attention in 1940, when she was 80 years old. Her folk art, down-home personality, and background as a farmer and homemaker charmed the American public. By the time she died at the age of 101, she had completed over 1600 works of art and had established an international reputation. The work of "the white-haired girl," a self-taught artist who was a regular news feature for two decades, remained enormously popular at home and abroad even in the years after her death." "For this reevaluation of the work of Grandma Moses, Jane Kallir contributes an authoritative introduction and presents a catalogue that illustrates 87 of Moses' most important works. Kallir traces Moses' development as an artist from the first embroidered landscapes to the glorious paintings of her "old-age style." The Grandma Moses myth is tackled from various perspectives. Roger Cardinal examines the artist's working methods, exploring the relationship between the actual regional landscape and her interpretation of the area. Michael D. Hall places Moses within the context of contemporary artistic and social movements of the 1940s and 1950s. Lynda Roscoe Hartigan reveals how memory and imagination merge in the paintings. And Judith E. Stein discusses the role of gender in shaping the artist's reputation in the postwar years."

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 357 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

Egon Schiele : self-portraits and portraits by Egon Schiele ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Egon Schiele (1890-1918) is one of the most important Austrian artists of the twentieth century. This publication, produced to accompany an exhibition in the Belvedere, Vienna, is the first to focus on his portraits and self-portraits. Schiele was influenced by Gustav Klimt during his early career but soon discovered his own mode of expression. By the time of his premature death he had created an impressive oeuvre that concentrates on the depiction of the human figure. In his portraits, Schiele tried to portray his models' state of mind in visual terms, thereby following contemporary developments in psychoanalysis. His numerous self-portraits attest to the fact that the artist embarked on his exploration of human emotions by observing his own personality. Some 100 portraits and self-portraits document Schiele's artistic development and his extraordinary accomplishments as a portraitist. Confrontational and often explicitly erotic, they repeatedly provoked protest by testing the boundaries of traditional portraiture. Largely devoid of props or scenery, they reflect the artist's intensive study of the portrayal of emotional states. Schiele's examination of the self began with his own person: his self-portraits are fascinating glimpses inside the mind of an extraordinarily gifted artist as well as seminal works of originality and deep empathy with the human condition

Egon Schiele's women by Jane Kallir ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"During his brief yet prolific career, Egon Schiele created hundreds of drawings, watercolors, and oil paintings of the women in his life. His work is generally regarded as expressionistic, emotional, intense, autobiographical, and highly sexual. In this elegant and beautifully illustrated book, Jane Kallir examines Schiele's depictions of women to argue that there is more to these images than we realize. Drawing from the latest research as well as her own exhaustive familiarity with Schiele's entire oeuvre, Kallir explores four distinct periods, each characterized by a single figure or series of women: the artist's mother and sisters; the often anonymous models of the "breakthrough" years, 1910-11; his lover, Wally Neuzil; and his wife, Edith, and her sister, Adele. Weaving together historical context, biographical information, and observations of the works, Kallir demonstrates how these women relate not only to Schiele's development but to the larger issue of feminine representation. Kallir offers a panoply of significant insights into a central aspect of the artist's achievement, which has never before been the subject of a focused study. Schiele's fans will treasure this beautiful and groundbreaking addition to the literature on this important artist"--
