Die Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München zählt zu den weltweit bedeutenden Sammlungen von Zeichnungen. Hundert ausgewählte Meisterblätter aus München werden nun für einige Zeit in einer einzigartigen Ausstellung im New Yorker Morgan Museum zu sehen sein. Die Bestände der Staatlichen Graphischen Sammlung München umfassen alle Epochen der Zeichenkunst und bieten in ihrer Bandbreite und Qualität ein Spektrum von größter Vielfalt. Ihre Ursprünge gehen auf das 1758 gegründete Zeichnungskabinett Kurfürst Carl Theodors von der Pfalz zurück und sind seitdem kontinuierlich ausgebaut und hochkarätig bereichert worden. So bieten die ausgewählten Zeichnungen nicht nur einen repräsentativen Querschnitt durch eine hervorragend bestückte Sammlung, sondern zugleich eine Revue der Zeichenkunst vom ausgehenden 15. Jahrhundert bis in unsere Zeit.0Exhibition: The Morgan Library & Museum, New York, USA (12.10.2012-06.01.2013)

Illuminating fashion : dress in the art of medieval France and the Netherlands, 1325-1515 by Anne van Buren( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive study of dress in Northern Europe from the early fourteenth century to the beginning of the Renaissance, this new book is the first thorough study of the history of fashion in this period based solely on firmly dated or datable works of art. It draws on illuminated manuscripts, early printed books, tapestries, paintings, and sculpture from museums and libraries around the world. Examining the role of social customs and politics in influencing dress, at a time of rapid change in fashion, this fully illustrated volume demonstrates the richness of symbolism in medieval art and how artists used clothing and costume to help viewers interpret an image. At the heart of the work is 'A Pictorial History of Fashion, 1325 to 1515', an album of over 300 illustrations with commentary. This is followed by a comprehensive glossary of medieval English and French clothing terms and an extensive list of dated and datable works of art Accompanies an Exhibition at The Morgan Library & Museum, New York 20 May- September 4, 2011
The Painted page : Italian Renaissance book illumination, 1450-1550 by Royal Academy of Arts (Great Britain)( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

137 manuscripts, printed books with hand-painted illustrations and single pages are illustrated in full color, ranging from small prayer books to large choir books, and from Greek, Roman, and Italian literature to collections of fables and historical treatises. Many of these volumes were commissioned by powerful wealthy, and discriminating patrons who included members of the ruling Italian families as well as cardinals and popes and many of whom were also prominent bibliophiles. Among other fascinating issues, the mechanics of patronage, patterns of production, and formation of libraries are discussed in three essays and in the catalogue entries - the latter divided into eight thematic sections - written by noted specialists in the history of Renaissance manuscripts and books. And, of course, we are introduced to the artists themselves - their working habits, characteristic styles, and interrelationships

Saul Steinberg : illuminations by Joel Smith( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Best known for his barbed and brilliant art for The New Yorker, Saul Steinberg (1914-1999) did much more. He executed public murals, designed fabrics and stage sets, was an inventive collagist and printmaker, and turned his magic touch to the fields of painting, sculpture, advertising, and even wartime propaganda. This is the first comprehensive look at Steinberg's contribution to twentieth-century art, which was that of a modern-day illuminator, putting word and image in play to create art that spoke to the eyes, and minds, or readers." "An introduction by poet Charles Simic tracks the origins of Steinberg's darkly comic sensibility in the "Balkan bazaar" of the artist's native Romania. Joel Smith shows how architectural training and an early rise to fame as a cartoonist in fascist-era Milan honed Steinberg's gift for subtle graphic invention, and explores why one of the most visible, prolific, potent, and cosmopolitan careers in postwar American art has so thoroughly evaded serious study. Tracing the evolving motives that underlie Steinberg's multi-layered activity, this volume also raises fundamental questions about the historiography of modernism and the vexed status of "the middlebrow avant-garde" in an age of museum-bound art." "Previously unseen sketches, documents, and printed matter from the artist's papers illustrate the essay, career chronology, and entries for the works featured in this important book."--Jacket

This book, written for the general reader and scholar alike, reproduces and discusses over 175 of the finest objects from the Library's richly diverse collections.

The elegant marble library he built in New York to house these collections, regarded as one of architect Charles F. McKim's finest achievements, is illustrated and discussed in detail as well
Roy Lichtenstein : the black-and-white drawings 1961-1968 by Isabelle Dervaux( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1961 and 1968, Roy Lichtenstein (1923{u2013}1997) created some fifty large-format, highly detailed black-and-white drawings that represent one of the most important Pop-Art contributions to the history of drawing. The motifs stem from the consumer world and were radically new at the time, not only in their imagery but also their style, deliberately reminiscent of substandard commercial art. These independent drawings appropriate tawdry illustrations from packaging, advertisements, and comic books and transform them into works of striking visual intensity, tying in to the clean-edge aesthetic of geometric abstraction in the sixties. This richly illustrated publication provides a new basis for research on Lichtenstein{u2019}s early Pop Art years and includes material on the largely unknown 1967 Aspen project, in which the artist transformed a space into a black-and-white cartoon drawing.
