America : the New World in 19th-century painting by Österreichische Galerie Belvedere (Wien)( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A specifically American form of art emerged in the nineteenth century that was much more than just a reflection of European developments or stylistic trends. It was a period during which noteworthy local traditions were brought to light, and this is reflected in the selection of landscapes, portraits, and genre paintings contained in this volume, with a plate section including 146 works by 43 artists." "The works provide a comprehensive survey of American painting spanning more than one hundred years, from the close of the eighteenth century until World War I. In the context of their genre, these works demonstrate both the continuity and the breaks in the development of nineteenth-century American art and question the established art-historical narrative of American painting."--Jacket

La exposición abarca los momentos iniales del modernismo en Finlandia, desde 1890 a 1920, mostrando más de 100 obras de artistas casi desconocidos en el panorama internacional. Tras años de dominación sueca y rusa, el arte finés de finales del siglo XIX contribuiría a moldear la identidad nacional a través de un papel político creciente, mostrando unos rasgos muy particulares como su conexión con el neo-romanticismo y el simbolismo, o contando entre sus pioneros a muchas mujeres que desarrollarían sus carreras como artistas
Gustav Klimt - Josef Hoffmann : pionieers of modernism by Gustav Klimt( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der berühmte Künstler Gustav Klimt wird hier gemeinsam mit dem Architekten und Gestalter Josef Hoffmann präsentiert. Die intensive Zusammenarbeit der beiden begann mit der Gründung der Wiener Secession 1897 und setzte bis zum Tod von Gustav Klimt neue Maßstäbe in Europa. Die Beethovenausstellung (1902) in der Wiener Secession sowie das Gesamtkunstwerk Palais Stoclet in Brüssel bilden Höhepunkte dieser Zusammenarbeit. Zahlreiche Werke, in denen sich Hoffmanns charakteristische Handschrift deutlich widerspiegeln, belegen die wechselseitigen Einflüsse dieser Pioniere der österreichischen Moderne, die dieser umfassende Überblick auch in Bezug zur Wiener Werkstätte untersucht.0Exhibition: Unteres Belvedere, Wien (25.10.2011-4.3.2012)
Gold( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 171 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
Vienna - Berlin : the art of two cities( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the first to be devoted exclusively to the artistic parallels, divergences and interdependencies between Vienna and Berlin from the early twentieth century and into the interwar period. On the one hand was Berlin, a sprawling, ambitious metropolis with an almost American image and no historically evolved city center. On the other was Vienna, the city of the operetta, with its Baroque character and grand history. The point of departure is formed by the relationships, differences and commonalities between the two Secession groups around 1900. Even during Expressionism, Viennese art was characterized by psychological empathy, while the Berlin counterparts of this generation of artists cultiated gestures of ectasy or aggression. World War I led to greater proximity between the two nations, and to active artistic exchanges between them, for example in relation to the rise of New Objectivity. Gaining in importance at the same time in Vienna was Kineticism, whose counterpart in Berlin was the Dada movement, which confronted contemporary social issues in a critical and subversive manner, thereby engendering a type of anti-culture. While the images and perceptions of the two cities may contrast dramatically, this publication documents their creative symbiosis
Lovis Corinth : a feast of painting by Lovis Corinth( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Franz Xaver Messerschmidt, 1736-1783 by Franz Xaver Messerschmidt( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Messerschmidt, who created conventional portraits of dignitaries such as Empress Maria Theresa and Joseph II while working at the Imperial Academy in Vienna, began to turn exclusively to character heads in around 1770, a fact that quickly gained him the reputation of a maverick. This extensive monograph about an exceptional artist attempts an interpretation of the "deeper meaning" in an oeuvre which is as unusual as it is uncompromising."--Jacket
Awakening the night : art from Romanticism to the present by Brigitte Borchhardt-Birbaumer( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 148 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
Emigrants and exiles : a lost generation of Austrian artists in America, 1920-1950 by John Czaplicka( Book )

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

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 146 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

The women of Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early twentieth century, the traditional relationship between the sexes was challenged by a number of social, economic, and philosophical changes. It was above all the incipient development towards gender equality and sexual liberation that upset the restrictive moral conventions of the nineteenth century. Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and Oskar Kokoschka--then the three most outstanding painters of Viennese Modernism--approached the subject matter generally referred to as 'the woman question' from slightly different perspectives"--Jacket
Looking at Monet : the great impressionist and his influence on Austrian art( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking at Monet assembles works by the French painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) and presents them together with selected paintings and photographs of Austrian artists active during the same period in question. Besides Edouard Manet, the Viennese art scene of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries regarded Monet as the central and formative figure of French Impressionism. His works were on display in exhibitions at the Kunstlerhaus, the Secession, and the legendary Galerie Miethke and were known to his contemporaries from periodicals and books. Monet's influence on Austrian painters and photographers, such as Gustav Klimt, Emil Jakob Schindler, Olga Wisinger-Florian, Heinrich Kuhn, and Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel, was immediate and multifaceted
Herbert Boeckl by Herbert Boeckl( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in German and English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Jahr 1918, in dem Klimt und Schiele starben, war in jeder Hinsicht, in der Geschichte der Politik und der Kunst eine Zäsur. Es ist daher nicht Zufall, dass Herbert Boeckl unbelastet von den grossen Vorgängern ein neues Kapitel der österreichischen Malerei eröffnen konnte, ein Kapitel das mit dem Trümmerhaufen der Monarchie auch die Fin-de-siècle Dekadenz des frühen Wiener Expressionismus hinter sich liess. Er gehört künstlerisch bereits einer neuen Generation an und war ihr, wie so oft in seinem Leben, zugleich weit voraus. Mit seinem grossartigen Frühwerk hat er die österreichische Malerei aus der Stagnation des Expressionismus herausgeführt und sie mit seinem Spätwerk von der vom Ständestaat und Nationalsozialismus aufgezwungenem Provinzialität befreit. Ausstellung: Unteres Belvedere, Wien, 21.10.2009-31.1.2010
