Most widely held works by Jane Rogoyska
Gustav Klimt by Jane Rogoyska( )
16 editions published in 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,254 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
Amedeo Modigliani by Frances Alexander( )
2 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Modigliani (1884-1920), peintre sans bonheur dans son Italie natale, ne connut que le chagrin dans sa terre d'adoption, la France. De ce mal-être, l'artiste constitue une œuvre originale, influencée par l'Art nègre, les Cubistes et les nuits alcoolisées de Montparnasse. Sa vision de la femme, au corps sensuel, à la nudité presque agressive, aux visages énigmatiques, exprime toute sa souffrance d'être mal aimé, injustement méconnu. Modigliani est mort à l'âge de 36 ans. Ce livre se compose des toiles qui firent scandale en leur temps et qui paraissent aujourd'hui bien sages

Annotation
Modigliani by Jane Rogoyska( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 75 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 62 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

Der Künstler Modigliani (1884-1920) fand wenig Glück in seinem Geburtsland Italien und nur Kummer in seiner Wahlheimat Frankreich. Aus dieser Traurigkeit heraus schuf er ein individuelles und außergewöhnliches Werk, das Einflüsse afrikanischer Kunst, des Kubismus und vieler betrunkener Nächte in Montparnasse in sich trägt. Mit ihrer tiefen Sinnlichkeit und der fast aggressiven Nacktheit scheinen seine weiblichen Akte und deren geheimnisvolle Gesichter die Gesamtheit Modiglianis Leidens und Nichtanerkennung auszudrücken. Modigliani starb im Alter von 36 Jahren. Dieses Buch enthält Bilder, die dam
