Fr hst ck mit Lucian Freud

ISBN: 9783312006267
Release Date: 2014-02-03
Genre: Fiction

Um das Leben des Malers Lucian Freud ranken sich viele Gerüchte – nicht zuletzt, weil er Privates rigoros vor der Öffentlichkeit abschirmte. Geordie Greig gehörte zu Freuds engsten Vertrauten, mit ihm teilte er Geschichten aus seinem Leben, das voller Arbeitswut, grausamer Rücksichtslosigkeit und einer fatalen Hang zum Glücksspiel war. Greig enthüllt in seiner Biographie eine faszinierende Persönlichkeit, für die jeder aus der High Society liebend gern Modell sitzen wollte, obwohl es monatelange Tortur bedeutete. Illustriert mit vielen unbekannten Fotos und Bildern, ist diese Biographie eines der bedeutendsten Maler des 20. Jahrhunderts zugleich ein lebendiges Stück Kunstgeschichte.

Genre: Art

The Routledge Companion to Expressionism in a Transnational Context is a challenging exploration of the transnational formation, dissemination, and transformation of expressionism outside of the German-speaking world, in regions such as Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltics and Scandinavia, Western and Southern Europe, North and Latin America, and South Africa, in the first half of the twentieth century. Comprising a series of essays by an international group of scholars in the fields of art history and literary and cultural studies, the volume addresses the intellectual discussions and artistic developments arising in the context of the expressionist movement in the various art centers and cultural regions. The authors also examine the implications of expressionism in artistic practice and its influence on modern and contemporary cultural production. Essential for an in-depth understanding and discussion of expressionism, this volume opens up new perspectives on developments in the visual arts of this period and challenges the traditional narratives that have predominantly focused on artistic styles and national movements.

ISBN 0-915317-10-9 $10 “This eminently readable, vivid account of the American artist, Clay Edgar Spohn (1898-1977) provides numerous revelations about modern art, isms, and art institutions.... By 1948 Abstract Expressionism became a recognized "School" and Marcel Duchamp's anti-art was being transcended by Spohn's Assemblage-art, and ‘Discovered Objects.’... This portrait mirrors again the fate of artists who "follow their own direction" without compromise to the establishment of the day or the market, and present a challenge to contemporary society,” Maria Maryniak. “... Spohn’s, The Ballet of the Elements (front cover). San Francisco art critic Tom Albright described this painting exhibited with the best works of West Coast painters, “...with its stripe-like allusions to landscape under a ‘sky’ of fluid, shorthand squiggles, is altogether unique in this context (i.e. the projection still of the fervor, the desperation, the iconoclasm and ethical commitment etc. that went into them) and perhaps for that reason stands out as the exhibition’s most monumental single masterpiece."
