Franz Marc
Franz Marc (Illustrator)

From Library Journal
A casualty of World War I, Franz Marc was a pioneer of German Expressionism and co-founder with Wassily Kandinsky of the Blue Rider, which was both a publication and coalition of artists. His most famous images are paintings of blue horses, which are meant to convey the spiritual essence of nature lost to modern man and a personal symbolism of color. Rosenthal curated a 1979 Franz Marc exhibition at the University of California, Berkeley, and has expanded this text from his catalog of that show. His 44-page essay covers biographical and aesthetic aspects briefly but cogently. The text is followed by a 66-page full-color spread of paintings, one to a page. This provides an excellent concentrated visual reference on Franz Marc for students of modern art that would be hard to find in many other sources.- Hara L....

Book Description
Franz Marc (1880-1916) was one of the most important members of the Blue Rider group of painters, together with other outstanding artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Münter, August Macke, Paul Klee and Alfred Kubin. The group marked the high point of German Expressionism and had a profound influence on international art during the brief period from its formation to the beginning of the First World War. This volume, the second of a three-part catalogue raisonné of Franz Marc's work, is devoted to the watercolors, works on paper, sculpture and decorative arts. All the pieces included have been newly researched and documented by the Städtische Galerie at the Lenbachhaus in Munich. Each entry provides details of technique, provenance, exhibitions and literature.


The Blaue Reiter Almanac
Wassily Kandinsky

Paperback

Book Description
The Blaue Reiter (Blue Rider)--art movement was founded in 1911 by the young painters Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc, and was active in Europe until 1914. Originally published in Munich in 1912 and edited by Kandinsky and Marc-- the movements's almanac presented their synthesis of international culture to the European avant-garde at large. In both the selection of essays and its innovative interplay of word and image, The Blaue Reiter Almanac remains one of our most critically important works of literature on the art theory and culture of the 20th century. This edition, long unavailable in English and indispensable to any student of modernism, simulates the original German format, and includes documents, and musical notations, as well as seminal essays by Kandinsky, Schönberg, Marc, and others. Nearly 150...

Book Review
They are perhaps the most famous literary instructions never followed: "Dearest Max, my last request: Everything I leave behind me ... in the way of diaries, manuscripts, letters (my own and others'), sketches, and so on, [is] to be burned unread...." Thankfully, Max Brod did not honor his friend Franz Kafka's final wishes. Instead, he did everything within his power to ensure that Kafka's work would find publication--including making some sweeping changes in the original texts. Until recently, the world has known only Brod's version of Kafka, with its altered punctuation, word order, and chapter divisions. Restoring much of what had previously been expunged, as well as the fluid, oral quality of Kafka's original German, Mark Harman's new translation of The Castle is a major literary event. One of three...


50 Greatest Love Letters of All Time
David H. Lowenherz
0517223333
January 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
"The act of writing," proposes Lowenherz, "gives us a chance to reflect in private before exposing our heart." Hence the value of the love letter as an abiding expression of the writer's feelings in all their depth and complexity. A prominent collector and dealer in letters and historical memorabilia, Lowenherz presents letters (or fragments thereof) that collectively express the full range of amorous passion, from blind adoration to angst-ridden vituperation. Included are the romantic outpourings of celebrated writers George Sand, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald whose literary talents make their correspondence a model for any aspiring lover. Perhaps less gifted in their command of language, but certainly no less heartfelt, are selections from such notables as Harry Truman, Abigail...

From Publishers Weekly
Best known for his paintings of horses, German expressionist Franz Marc (1880–1916) was a painter with a self-consciously intellectual bent, neither as revolutionary as Picasso nor as lyrical as Matisse. This thorough, carefully arranged retrospective (published along with an exhibition at the Lenbachhaus in Munich) traces his development from early pastoral scenes to later cubist-inspired canvases he created while part of the Blue Rider group he founded with Wassily Kandinsky; in the process, this catalogue clarifies the motivations of this very earnest painter. Particularly useful is an essay by Barbara Eschenburg, who sheds light on Marc's interest in Darwin and Nietzsche. Eschenburg shows how Marc's animals—typically embedded in a flat, crystalline-patterned space—represent an intuitive...

How Green Were the Nazis : Nature, Environment, and Nation in the Third Reich
Franz-Josef Bruggemeier (Editor)
0821416472
February 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The Nazis created nature preserves, contemplated sustainable forestry, curbed air pollution, and designed the autobahn highway network as a way of bringing Germans closer to nature. How Green Were the Nazis? is the first book to examine the ideology and practice of environmental protection in Nazi Germany. Environmentalists and conservationists in Germany welcomed the rise of the Nazi regime with open arms, for the most part, and hoped that it would bring about legal and institutional changes. However, environmentalists soon realized that the rhetorical attention that they received from the regime did not always translate into action. By the late 1930s, nature and the environment became less pressing concerns as Nazi Germany prepared and executed its extensive war. Based on prodigious archival research, and written...
