Instrumente in Kunst und Wissenschaft

Author: Helmar Schramm
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
ISBN: 9783110199949
Release Date: 2006-01-01
Genre: Science

This volume presents a collection of original papers at the intersection of philosophy, the history of science, cultural and theatrical studies. Based on a series of case studies on the 17th century, it contributes to an understanding of the role played by instruments at the interface of science and art. The papers pursue the hypothesis that the development and construction of instruments make a substantive contribution to the opening up of new fields of knowledge and to the development of new cultural practices, but also to the delineation of particular genres, methods and disciplines.

David Hockney

Genre: Art

David Hockney (b. 1937) is one of the most significant artists exploring and pushing the boundaries of figurative art today. Hockney has been engaged with portraiture since his teenage years, when he painted Portrait of My Father (1955), and his self-portraits and depictions of family, lovers, and friends represent an intimate visual diary of the artist’s life. This beautifully illustrated book examines Hockney’s portraits in all media—painting, drawing, photography, and prints—and has been produced in close collaboration with the artist. Featured subjects include members of Hockney’s family and private circle, as well as portraits of such artists and cultural figures as Lucian Freud, Francesco Clemente, R. B. Kitaj, Helmet Newton, Lawrence Weschler, and W. H. Auden. The authors reveal how Hockney’s creative development and concerns about representation can be traced through his portrait work: from his battle with naturalism to his experimentation with and later rejection of photography, and from his recent camera lucida drawings to his return to painting from life. Featuring more than 250 works from the past fifty years, David Hockney Portraits illustrates not only the fascinating range of Hockney’s creative practice but also the unique and cyclical nature of his artistic concerns.

Die Experimentalkultur in einer Seifenblase

Author: Anita Hosseini
Publisher: Verlag Wilhelm Fink
ISBN: 9783846760826
Release Date: 2017-04-17
Genre: Art

Wie kann Malerei Wissen vermitteln oder gar generieren? Diese Frage untersucht Anita Hosseini in ihrer Studie zum 18. Jahrhundert ausgehend von Jean-Siméon Chardins Gemälde "Die Seifenblasen". Durch die Zusammenführung von Experimentalkultur, Bildgenese und Bildrezeption zeigt Hosseini, wie aus der Seifenblase als Symbol der Vanitas zugleich auch ein Sinnbild der Veritas wird. Nicht nur durch das Sujet, sondern auch durch die Darstellungstechnik veranschaulichen Chardins Bildwelten die Diskurse ihrer Entstehungszeit. Die Malerei gibt Aufschluss über das Licht Newtons und die damaligen Wahrnehmungstheorien. Mit "Augen wie Prismen" (Renou) zergliedert Chardin die sichtbare Welt in Luft und Licht, die er zur Darstellung bringt. Aus der malerischen Ästhetik geht eine Wahrnehmungsästhetik hervor, die diese Malerei in der Rezeption selbst zu einem Feld des Experiments macht.
