Paul Klee : the abstract dimension by Paul Klee( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Klee (1879?1940) is one of the most influential painters of European modernism. With an oeuvre comprising nearly ten thousand works, numerous solo and group exhibitions of his work have been mounted well beyond his lifetime. To this very day, the intense interest in his work has not waned. And yet there has never been an exhibition that has extensively examined Klee?s relationship to abstraction. The show at the Fondation Beyeler?along with the accompanying catalogue, which is ?underscored? by insightful texts from well-known authors?is closing this gap. Four groups of themes?nature, architecture, painting, and graphic characters?make up the golden thread through Klee?s body of work whose formal repertoire repeatedly oscillates between the semi-representational and the absolute abstract, and which are examined here in separate chapters. Thus one not only gains in-depth insight into Klee?s involvement with abstraction?new references to his contemporaries, as well as to artists of later generations, are unveiled.00Exhibition: Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, Switzerland (01.10.2017?21.01.2018)

The Indian queen by Henry Purcell( Visual )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A superb adaptation of Purcell's the Indian Queen, staged and directed by Peter Sellars and performed in 2013 at the Teatro Real in Madrid. Peters Sellars combines John Dryden and Robert Howard's libretto with a short-story written by the Nicaraguan writer Rosario Aguilar, La niña blanca y los pájaros sin pies. Henry Purcell died in 1695, while he was composing his last opera The Indian Queen. His brother Daniel completed hastely the rich, visionnary and transcendental score of the great British composer. The Indian Queen is a semi-opera, a genre in vogue in the late 17th century. It refers to a work that combines music, recitatives and ballets. The Indian Queen is probably one of Purcell's less often performed stage works compared to his more famous pieces: The Fairy Queen, King Arthur and the opera Didon and Æneas. The original libretto deals with several loving conflicts against a backdrop of Caribbean war. The libretto The original libretto by John Dryden was supposed to be situated between Lima and Mexico before the Spanish invasion, developping how an impossible love story between the Queen of the Aztecs and the general of the Yncas will provoque an imaginary conflict between Yncas and Aztecs. The adaptation of Peter Sellars describes the first contact between the Europeans and the Mayas of the New World, a personal and choral narration of the Conquista through the lives of two women who created a new culture. The staging Over three centuries after Purcell, Peter Sellars has imagined a fresh and original new version of Purcell's last masterpiece, including some of his most inspired songs, with a new libretto adapted from John Dryden and Robert Howard's libretto and the short story La niña blanca y los pajaros sin pies (The white maid and the feetless birds) by Nicaraguan novelist Rosario Aguilar. Sellars removes Purcell's brother's additions to the original score, and adds songs from Henry Purcell's other works: "O Solitude", "Music for a while" and some others. He makes the love story between the two main characters deeper and gives greater importance to politics. The casting brings together the French countertenor Christophe Dumaux and a myriad of young voices -- Julia Bullock, Yi Vince, Luthando Qave. Choirs and music are wonderful. This sublime work combines song, dance, theater, music, painting and the history of literature. The Indian Queen is a co-production of the Teatro Real Madrid, the English National Opera in London and the Opera of Perm in Russia

Paul Klee - Die abstrakte Dimension by Paul Klee( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Klee (1879–1940) zählt zu den einflussreichsten Malern der europäischen Moderne. Mit einem Œuvre von annähernd 10 000 Werken wurden nicht allein zu seinen Lebzeiten zahlreiche Einzel- und Gruppenausstellungen ausgerichtet. Bis heute ist das Interesse an seinen Arbeiten unverändert hoch. Und doch: Es gab noch keine Ausstellung, die sich umfassend mit Klees Verhältnis zur Abstraktion auseinandergesetzt hat. Diese Lücke schließt die Schau der Fondation Beyeler und mit ihr der begleitende Katalog, der von aufschlussreichen Texten renommierter Autoren »untermalt« wird. Als roter Faden ziehen sich vier Themengruppen – Natur, Architektur, Malerei und Schriftzeichen – durch Klees Werk, deren Formenrepertoire immer wieder zwischen Halbgegenständlichem und absolut Abstraktem oszilliert und die hier in eigenen Kapiteln untersucht werden. So lassen sich nicht nur vertiefte Erkenntnisse über seine Beschäftigung mit der Abstraktion gewinnen, auch offenbaren sich neue Bezüge zu Zeitgenossen sowie zu Künstlern späterer Generationen (Englische Ausgabe: ISBN 978-3-7757-4331-0)
