"Herbert Brandl (*1959 in Graz) is one of today's most influential painters. His participation in the 1992 documenta IX in Kassel and the Biennale di Venezia in 2007 attests to his presence on the international scene. Ever since he took up the brush, Brandl's work has concentrated predominantly on the subject of landscape, although the pictures themselves alternate between the painterly abstract and the representational in terms of motif. Above all, from the time the artist started integrating the motif of the mountain into his work, he has produced abstract color-field paintings and powerful mountain landscapes side by side. This publication presents a number of works from the early eighties onward, accompanied by very new paintings created specifically for the retrospective. In addition, the book explores Brandl's affinity for the paintings of Albrecht ltdorfer, Titian, and Peter Paul Rubens in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, which have been a lasting inspiration for his creative work."--Publisher's website

Franz West gehört zu den wichtigsten zeitgenössischen Künstlern und ist zugleich einer der speziellsten Protagonisten der europäischen Kunstszene. Das Oeuvre des Biennale- und documenta-Teilnehmers ist geprägt von dem Interesse an Körperlichkeit und dem Ausloten von physischen und psychischen Erlebnissen. Die Liste der Publikationen zu einzelnen Werkgruppen ist fast solang wie die Liste der Museen und Sammlungen, die Kunstwerke von ihm besitzen. DuMont legt in Zusammenarbeit mit drei Museen und dem Archiv Franz West einen Band vor, der anhand von über 100 Schlüsselwerken erstmals einen umfassenden Blick auf das Gesamtwerk richtet. Ausstellung: Museum Ludwig, Köln, 12. Dezember 2009 - 14. März 2010; MADRE, Neapel, 14. Mai - 23. August 2010; Kunsthaus Graz, 24. September 2010 - 9. Januar 2011

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is no easy way to define Franz West's art: it is fundamentally sculptural in its construction, veers frequently toward the biomorphic and prosthetic, mines the intellectualism of Freud and Wittgenstein, and possesses an awkward beauty that speaks with equal fluency to the tradition of painterly abstraction and the aesthetics of trash art. West's distinctive vision has resulted in one of the most remarkable bodies of work produced since the 1960s. This book, with more than 160 color images, offers a comprehensive look at West's work from the 1970s to the present. A unique blend of illustration, essays, interviews, and artist's pages, it accompanies a major retrospective organized by The Baltimore Museum of Art, and includes a new piece created specifically for the exhibition." "Emerging from Vienna's confrontational performance art scene led by the Actionists during the 1960s, West believed from the beginning that physical engagement is an essential function of the art experience. This is clear both in his Adaptives (Passstuck) series (begun in 1974), human-scaled sculptures made of plaster to be held and worn by museum visitors, and in his later installations incorporating cabinets, tables, and chairs. Interaction is no less a premise in West's more recent large-scale outdoor sculptures: a series of brightly painted aluminum works adorning public plazas throughout Europe and the United States." "The book mixes intense visual content with critical commentary, an interview with the artist, a concentrated section on West's working methods, an artist's response to the work through words and images, and an extensive chronology and bibliography."--Jacket
