              Schiele
               

              Schiele (PDF ebook)

              By Zwingenberger, Jeanette; Selsdon, Esther; Bassie, Ashley

              La obra de Egon Schiele es tan particular que se resiste a la categorizacion. Admitido en la Academia Vienesa de las Bellas Artes cuando apenas contaba con dieciseis anos, fue un artista de extraordinaria precocidad, cuya consumada habilidad en la manipulacion de las lineas le di...o a sus obras una tersa expresividad. Profundamente convencido de su propia importancia como artista, Schiele logro mas en su corta existencia que muchos otros artistas en toda una vida. Sus raices se encontraban en los Jugendstil del movimiento de Secesion vienes. Como toda una generacion, cayo bajo la abrumadora influencia de los mas carismaticos y celebrados artistas vieneses, como Gustav Klimt. A su vez, Klimt reconocio el gran talento de Schiele y apoyo al joven artista, que en solo un par de anos ya se alejaba del estilo sensual decorativo de su mentor. Alrededor de 1910, Schiele comenzo un periodo de intensa creatividad, embarcado en una estoica exposicion de la forma humana, entre la que incluia la suya propia, tan penetrante que es evidente que examinaba una anatomia mas psicologica, espiritual y emocional que fisica. Pinto muchos paisajes de pueblos y campos, hizo retratos formales y trato temas alegoricos, pero fueron sus trabajos mas francos en papel, muchos de los cuales son abiertamente eroticos, junto con su tendencia a usar modelos menores de edad, lo que hizo que Schiele fuera vulnerable a al censura moral. En 1912, fue encarcelado por sospecha de una serie de delitos entre los que se incluia el secuestro, la violacion y la inmoralidad publica. Los cargos mas graves terminaron por retirarse (todos excepto el de inmoralidad publica) pero Schiele paso aproximadamente tres semanas terribles en prision. Los circulos expresionistas alemanes dieron una recepcion poco entusiasta a los trabajos de Schiele. Su compatriota Kokoschka obtuvo un exito mayor entre ellos. Aunque admiraba a los artistas de Munich de Der Blaue Reiter, por ejemplo, ellos lo rechazaron. Mas tarde, durante la P

              Schiele (EPUB ebook)

              By Zwingenberger, Jeanette; Selsdon, Ether; Bassie, Ashley

              Egon Schiele's work is so distinctive that it resists categorisation. Admitted to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts at just sixteen, he was an extraordinarily precocious artist, whose consummate skill in the manipulation of line, above all, lent a taut expressivity to all his work.... Profoundly convinced of his own significance as an artist, Schiele achieved more in his abruptly curtailed youth than many other artists achieved in a full lifetime. His roots were in the Jugendstil of the Viennese Secession movement. Like a whole generation, he came under the overwhelming influence of Vienna's most charismatic and celebrated artist, Gustav Klimt. In turn, Klimt recognised Schiele's outstanding talent and supported the young artist, who within just a couple of years, was already breaking away from his mentor's decorative sensuality. Beginning with an intense period of creativity around 1910, Schiele embarked on an unflinching expose of the human form - not the least his own - so penetrating that it is clear he was examining an anatomy more psychological, spiritual and emotional than physical. He painted many townscapes, landscapes, formal portraits and allegorical subjects, but it was his extremely candid works on paper, which are sometimes overtly erotic, together with his penchant for using under-age models that made Schiele vulnerable to censorious morality. In 1912, he was imprisoned on suspicion of a series of offences including kidnapping, rape and public immorality. The most serious charges (all but that of public immorality) were dropped, but Schiele spent around three despairing weeks in prison. Expressionist circles in Germany gave a lukewarm reception to Schiele's work. His compatriot, Kokoschka, fared much better there. While he admired the Munich artists of Der Blaue Reiter, for example, they rebuffed him. Later, during the First World War, his work became better known and in 1916 he was featured in an issue of the left-wing, Berlin-based Expressionist magazine

              Beckmann (EPUB ebook)

              By Bassie, Ashley

              Dem Grafiker, Maler, Bildhauer und Lehrer Max Beckmann (1884-1950) gelang mit seinem Lebenswerk etwas, um dass sich viele Kunstler vor und nach ihm vergeblich bemuht haben: Ein OEuvre zu schaffen, das den groBen Kunsttraditionen huldigt ohne dabei nachahmerisch zu wirken, das exp...ressionistisch ist ohne dabei die Realitat ins Unkenntliche oder Lacherliche zu abstrahieren, das modern und wegweisend ist ohne der Selbstgefalligkeit eines avantgardistischen Denkens zu verfallen. Beckmanns Kunst lehnt sich gegen jederlei Zuordnung auf und bleibt dabei doch konkret und erfassbar. Vor dem Hintergrund von Max Beckmanns turbulentem Leben, seinem Dienst im Ersten Weltkrieg, der Ungewissenheit der Weimarer Republik und der Flucht aus Nazi-Deutschland, beleuchtet Ashley Bassie in diesem Bildband Beckmanns Schaffen und dessen Beziehung zum Expressionismus seiner Zeit.
