Egon Schiele : self-portraits and portraits by Egon Schiele( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 264 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
Les grands spectacles : 120 Jahre Kunst und Massenkultur = 120 years of art and mass culture( Book )

Gold( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the earliest days of human history, gold has stirred powerful passions in all who have beheld it. Its rarity, its brilliance and natural beauty, and its enduring associations with might and wealth have all ensured that it remains among the most treasured metals on earth. It should come as no surprise, then, that the path through art history is also often paved with gold. This opulently designed volume takes readers on a tour of gold in art from the second century to the present. Beginning with a gilded mummy portrait and series of religious-themed gold leaf backgrounds from late Antiquity, the book moves on to the use of gold in medieval art. From the Renaissance, the book presents exemplary interior and decorative arts. But the most extensive focus is on the use of gold in twentieth and twentieth-first-century art with a wide selection of works from, among many others, Willi Baumeister, Georg Baselitz, Victor Vasarely, Yves Klein, Andy Warhol, Max Weiler, Sylvie Fleury, Franz West, and George Condo. Together, the works demonstrate that, in contemporary art, the use of gold is not limited by theme, form, or style
Awakening the night : art from Romanticism to the present( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This absorbing volume explores how artists have expressed their fascination with the night and its mysteries over two centuries. Delving deep into the subjects of philosophy, psychology, and astronomy, this beautifully illustrated and wide-ranging volume offers a chronological approach to understanding how artists of all kinds have dealt with the subject of nighttime. It opens with the early 19th century, focusing on the tension between romanticism and enlightenment, idealism and realism, beauty and science. It then goes on to explore the introduction of electricity, the subsequent illumination of urban spaces, and light pollution. Finally, it investigates contemporary images of places that come alive in the darkness: subways, mines, theaters, movie houses, and nightclubs. Filled with the work of renowned painters, photographers, sculptors, and filmmakers, the volume is enhanced by a series of insightful essays that help us understand how artists' depictions of nighttime have evolved in tandem with developments in technology, science, and philosophy

Valie Export : Zeit und Gegenzeit = Time and countertime by Valie Export( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having quickly tired of life as an editor and extra in the Austrian film industry, in 1967 Waltraud Hollinger changed her name to Valie Export and plunged into the violent and often blood-soaked world of Viennese performance art and the extremist "Actions" of Hermann Nitsch, Günter Brus, Otto Mühl and Rudolf Schwarzkogler. Like them, Export subjected her body to pain, but where their work was inevitably drawn towards a religious idea of catharsis, Export politicized the inscription of women's bodies in terms of media representation, declaring her project as explicitly feminist. Export soon turned to video to record her performances and began to remove her person from her work, as in her now-famous 1971 video "Facing a Family." Today, across more than four decades of activity, Export has built a large and rigorous oeuvre comprising performance, photography, film and media installations. This volume surveys her career

Makart : painter of the senses by Hans Makart( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hans Makart left his mark on his age like no other artist of the nineteenth century. He became the symbol of his time, which has gone down in history as the Makart Era. summoned to Vienna by the emperor as a talented young artist, his painting were popular among the rising bourgeoisie and were ultimately regarded as the measure of social recognition and reputation. Makart's free painterly use of color and light derives from French art, especially that of Eugene Delacroix. At the same time as Edouard Manet, Auguste Renoir, and Gustave Moreau he cultivated color as one of the core elements in his art. Through the accentuation of sensuality--of taste, eroticism, and a robust joie-de-vivre--he also struck the chord of decline and is thus a typical representative of the Age of Decadence. Makart was skilled in using the possibilities offered by new reproduction techniques to popularize his works and his own specific aesthetic. His images and theme became trademarks and reflections of his age and aroused national and international attention. Makart's artistic approach was open to experiment; it was evidenced in his intensive study of Richard Wagner's 'Ring de Nibelungen' and the architecture of Gottfried Semper, and it expressed itself in large-format painterly interpretations of the operas and in visionary architectural fantasies. Makart was highly respected internationally when he died in 1884 at the age of 44"--Jacket

Orient & Occident : travelling 19th century Austrian painters( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the 19th century, Austrian painters were drawn to faraway countries for their inspiration. Initially, they documented scenes and motifs. Later, the visual allure of foreign places, the transformation of landscapes and buildings by sunlight, the depiction of heat and the exotic surroundings also began to find expression in their paintings and drawings. One of the most important Austrian painters to visit the Orient was Leopold Carl Müller, who produced many market scenes and figures over the course of nine winters in Egypt. Other Austrian painters, such as Alois Schonn, Alphons Mielich and Bernhard Fiedler, also travelled to the Orient, and Rudolf Swoboda and Hermann von Königsbrunn even reached India and Ceylon. August von Pettenkofen, Otto von Thoren and Johann Gualbert Raffalt looked for inspiration closer to home, in neighboring Hungary. This publication brings together the impressions of these artists of Hungary, the Balkan, Greece and Constantinople, Egypt and the Holy Land, as well as India, Ceylon and the Indian Ocean."--Publisher's website
