7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Form, color, illumination : Suzan Frecon painting by Josef Helfenstein ( Book )
9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This publication is the first major exploration of the works of American abstract painter and watercolorist Suzan Frecon (b. 1941), critically acclaimed for her sensitive arrangement of color, form, and texture and for the philosophical resonance of her art. By restricting herself to nonrepresentational forms, earth-based colors, and, in the case of her watercolors, "found" pieces of paper, Frecon achieves an unequaled sense of balance and openness in her work. The book features ten oil paintings and thirty watercolors dating from the late 1990s to 2007."--BOOK JACKET
Ferdinand Hodler : a symbolist vision by Ferdinand Hodler ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Swiss painter Ferdinand Hodler (1853-1918) is one of Europe's most influential artistic personalities, whose work bridged the styles of Realism, Symbolism, and the modern period. Despite initial praise, his extensive oeuvre has not always been an object of admiration; its diversity and originality, however, deserve international re-evaluation. Hodler's Symbolist vision of a large, harmonious union of man and nature is expressed both in unique and monumental figurative compositions, and in stylized landscapes of sheer mountain peaks and glinting lakes. Twenty-five years since the last retrospective, this fresh and extensive assessment of Hodler's partings invites the viewer to explore his work anew; on the one hand it represents a unique view of turn-of-the-century art and Symbolism, on the other it demonstrates a powerful and genuine interest in the depiction of man."--BOOK JACKET

Sean Scully : Retrospektive by Sean Scully ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sean Scully was born in 1945 in Dublin and grew up in London. He became a US citizen in 1983. Today, he is resident in New York, Barcelona and Munich. Under the influence of Mark Rothko, he abandoned representational painting at an early stage. Ever since, the direct language of the brush, shapes that are exclusively geometrical figures and a deft play with colours that ranges from delicate nuances and glazes to powerful and direct applications of colours has been the essence of Scully's work. Although his pictures were initially strictly two-dimensional, they began to extend into the third dimension in the 1980s. He paints on box-shaped objects with projections and recesses. Today, he often works on metal plates, sometimes combining them with canvases. This book focuses on his current output

2 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hermann und Margrit Rupf trugen eine der bedeutendsten europäischen Sammlungen zur Klassischen Moderne zusammen. Das Besondere sind u. a. die vielen exquisiten Werke, die bereits im Jahr ihrer Entstehung erworben wurden. Seit den 1950er Jahren ist die Sammlung durch eine Stiftung am Kunstmuseum Bern öffentlich zugänglich und wird bis heute erweitert - wie zuvor durch das Sammlerpaar vor allem durch Ankäufe zeitgenössischer Kunst. 'Rectangle and Square' erlaubt nun erstmals umfassenden Einblick in die Sammlung Rupf, offenbart Vorlieben des privaten Sammlers, dokumentiert die Tätigkeit der Stiftung und gibt zugleich einen wunderbaren Überlick über die letzten einhundert Jahre Kunstgeschichte
