              Burne-Jones
               

              Burne-Jones (EPUB ebook)

              By Bade, Patrick

              Burne-Jones' oeuvre can be understood as an attempt to create in paint a world of perfect beauty, as far removed from the Birmingham of his youth as possible. At that time Birmingham was a byword for the dire effects of unregulated capitalism - a booming, industrial conglomeratio...n of unimaginable ugliness and squalor. The two great French symbolist painters, Gustave Moreau and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, immediately recognised Burne-Jones as an artistic fellow traveller. But, it is very unlikely that Burne-Jones would have accepted or even, perhaps, have understood the label of 'symbolist'. Yet he seems to have been one of the most representative figures of the symbolist movement and of that pervasive mood termed "fin-de-siecle". Burne-Jones is usually labelled as a Pre-Raphaelite. In fact he was never a member of the Brotherhood formed in 1848. Burne-Jones' brand of Pre-Raphaelitism derives not from Hunt and Millais but from Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Burne-Jones' work in the late 1850s is, moreover, closely based on Rossetti's style. His feminine ideal is also taken from that of Rossetti, with abundant hair, prominent chins, columnar necks and androgynous bodies hidden by copious medieval gowns. The prominent chins remain a striking feature of both artists' depictions of women. From the 1860s their ideal types diverge. As Rossetti's women balloon into ever more fleshy opulence, Burne-Jones' women become more virginal and ethereal to the point where, in some of the last pictures, the women look anorexic. In the early 1870s Burne-Jones painted several mythical or legendary pictures in which he seems to have been trying to exorcise the traumas of his celebrated affair with Mary Zambaco. No living British painter between Constable and Bacon enjoyed the kind of international acclaim that Burne-Jones was accorded in the early 1890s. This great reputation began to slip in the latter half of the decade, however, and it plummeted after 1900 with the triumph of Modernism.

              Schiele (EPUB ebook)

              By Bade, Patrick

              Pornografisch, unsittlich, amoralisch und letztendlich sogar entartet" wurde die Kunst des Egon Schiele genannt. Lange Zeit verkannt und verunglimpft, hat der geniale, von Selbstobsession getriebene Kunstler dennoch unbeirrt seine kunstlerische Suche nach der Essenz der weibliche...n Sexualitat und nach einer neuen, ausgeglichenen Selbstwahrnehmung fortgesetzt; eine Suche, die in einer Vielzahl von Selbstportrats und Aktzeichnungen zum Ausdruck gebracht wurde. Dieser Band bemuht sich darum, die volle kunstlerische Bandbreite des Kunstlers zu erfassen, seine bekannten Portrats, Akte und Selbstportrats mit seinen weniger bekannten Landschafts -und Stadtebildern zu kontrastieren und einen Einblick in die Seele des umstrittenen Osterreichers zu bieten.

              Munch (EPUB ebook)

              By Bade, Patrick

              Der Name Edvard Munch" ruft bei den meisten Menschen eine bestimmte visuelle Assoziation hervor: Ein schadelhaftes Gesicht, angstverzerrt, einen stummen, durchdringenden Schrei des Grauens ausstoBend, wahrend im Hintergrund eine feurige, blutrote Sonne untergeht. Der Schrei hat s...ich im letzten Jahrhundert zu einem ikonischen Sinnbild fur die Existenzangst des modernen Menschen entwickelt. Der Schopfer dieses Kunstwerks war, trotz des immer wiederkehrenden Wahnsinns, der Exzesse, selbstzerstorerischer Beziehungen und einer lebenslang unerfullten Sehnsucht, ein sanftmutiger und introvertierter Mensch, der immer darauf bedacht war, sich selbst zu reflektieren. Mehr als fur viele andere Kunstler, war fur Munch das Malen ein therapeutischer Prozess, eine Ubertragung des Zustands seiner Seele auf Leinwand und Papier. Umso trostlicher muss es gewesen sein, dass er die internationale Anerkennung seiner Kunst noch miterleben konnte: von der fur Furore sorgenden Secessions-Ausstellung in Berlin bis hin zur allgemeinen Wertschatzung des Expressionismus - dessen Kunstler er entscheidend mitgepragt hatte. Dennoch waren auch seine letzten Lebensjahre nicht frei von Kummer: Er musste miterleben wie seine Kunst als entartet" gebrandmarkt und seine Heimat von den Streitkraften des dritten Reichs besetzt wurde. Dieses Ebook prasentiert Munchs aufwuhlende Lebensgeschichte und eine kompakte Auswahl an Kunstwerken, die mehr sind als nur die Darstellung einer kunstlerischen Entwicklung; Sie sind ein Blick in die Seele und den Geist eines genialen und vielfaltigen Kunstlers.

              Lempicka (EPUB ebook)

              By Bade, Patrick

              Die Portraits, Akte und Stillleben von Tamara Lempicka (1898-1980) atmen den Geist des Art Deco und des Jazz Age. Sie spiegeln den eleganten und hedonistischen Lebensstil einer glamourosen Elite in Paris in der Zeit zwischen den beiden Weltkriegen wider. Ihre Kunst kombiniert ein...e hervorragende klassische Technik mit Elementen aus dem Kubismus. Lempickas Schaffen ist der Hohepunkt eleganter Modernitat und greift gleichzeitig auf Meisterportraitisten wie Ingres oder Bronzino zuruck. Das vorliegende Buch befasst sich mit der rationalen Schonheit ihrer besten Werke in den 1920er und 1930er Jahren und der auBergewohnlichen Lebensgeschichte einer talentierten und schillernden Frau. Sie beginnt ihr Leben zur Jahrhundertwende in Polen und dem zaristischen Russland, dann verbringt sie glorreiche Jahre in Paris und eine lange Zeit des Misserfolgs in Amerika, bis sie schlieBlich in den 70er Jahren wieder entdeckt wird und ihre Bilder den Status einer Ikone und weltweite Popularitat erhalten.
