Gustav Klimt by Patrick Bade ( )
21 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gustav Klimt was born in Austria in 1862 and spent his working life in Vienna, a city whose artistic chaos made it an extraordinary place to live. In his early career he received a public commission to paint a series of frescos, and received the "Gold Cross for Artistic Merit" for his Burgtheater murals. However, his name is most enduringly linked to the Viennese Secession. This revolutionary movement separated itself definitively from public, academic art. The atmosphere of Klimt's Nuda Veritas could be likened to the slow languor of Strauss's operas or to the theatre productions of Schnitzle

Modigliani by Amedeo Modigliani ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Modigliani (1884-1920) was an artist who found little happiness in his native Italy, but in his adopted land of France he found only sorrow. Out of this unhappiness he created an original and extraordinary body of work, influenced by African art, the Cubist movement and the drunken nights of Montparnasse. His female nudes, with their deep sensuality and almost aggressive nudity, with their enigmatic faces, seem to express all of Modigliani's suffering and lack of recognition."--Jacket

Gerda Taro : inventing Robert Capa by Jane Rogoyska ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Paris in 1934, a young and beautiful émigrée from Germany, Gerda Pohorylles, met a Hungarian political exile, André Friedmann. They reinvented themselves as the photographers Gerda Taro and Robert Capa - and he would become the most important photojournalist of his generation. When Gerda was killed in the Spanish Civil war at the age of twenty-six, Robert Capa was her most notable mourner. Her funeral drew crowds of thousands and she became a hero of the political left. Despite the legend that was built around her, she subsequently became a mere footnote in Capa's story. Seventy years after her death a long-lost suitcase was discovered in Mexico, containing thousands of negatives by Capa and Taro. Most astonishingly of all, the 'Mexican suitcase' showed that photographs that had been attributed previously to Capa were, in fact, the work of Taro. Jane Rogoyska's book will trace Taro's life and reveal the depth of her relationship with Capa. Charismatic and extraordinary, they epitomised one of the most tumultuous periods of the century
