Book Description
Emil Nolde is regarded as one of the most noteworthy Expressionist painters. Portraits play a prominent role in the artist's oeuvre, particularly those of his early creative period. During those years in which Nolde's art developed to maturity, his painting was enriched by an innovative power that inspired later artists well into the twentieth century. Some 60 of the unparalleled portraits completed by Emil Nolde between 1903 and 1918 are presented and described in this book. These works include the masterful self-portraits of 1916-17, the famous double portrait Brother and Sister of 1918, and his portrait-style images of people he encountered while traveling in New Guinea from 1913 to 1914. The autonomy and immediacy of Nolde's painting is particularly evident in these works. Fascinated by the obscure inner-stirrings...

Unpainted Pictures

Hardcover

Book Description
"Unpainted Pictures" is the title of a series of fascinating watercolors painted by Emil Nolde from 1938 through 1945. Nolde created these works in the seclusion of his own home in Seebüll, after his works had been confiscated by the Nazis and he himself had been forbidden to paint. He lent many of them to friends for safekeeping, in order to protect himself and his art from Gestapo raids. These small, free, imaginative works were ''unpainted'' in the sense that they did not officially exist and were not supposed to exist--not only that, but Nolde hoped to expand on them at a later date. Nolde never offered any of these watercolors for sale, and today this collection--which has become, for many, the summary and epitome of his work--resides at the Nolde Foundation in Seebüll. All of the 104 watercolors in the...

Book Description
This penetrating examination of two major themes in the Expressionist and Neue Sachlichkeit movements traces German artists’ varied responses to their country’s abrupt encounter with industrialization and urbanization. Few artistic movements mirror the social and political climates of their emergence as much as German Expressionism and Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity). This exhibition catalog presents a selection of important paintings, covering the period from 1907 to 1926, from one of Germany’s major collections of twentieth-century art. The thirty-four paintings presented here include works by Kirchner, Nolde, Pechstein, Dix, Groz, Schmidt-Rottluff, Heckel, and Beckmann. Arranged chronologically, and with in-depth explanatory texts, they allow readers to trace the evolution of German...

From Publishers Weekly
A skeleton urinates in a river, demons torment sobbing broken men, and the devil mates with Salome to infect the Pope with syphilis in this history of the mania for the bizarre in German visual art, performance and literature. The book, produced in conjunction with an exhibition at the Neue Galerie in New York, begins with curator Kort's essay on the symbolist painter Arnold Bocklin, who produced lushly painted scenes of mythic figures and monsters at play. As the book goes on, the genres become less traditional, encompassing the fields of photography, collage and even puppetry. In addition, the images themselves become more abstract, as lurid mélanges of male, female and animal bodies form comic nightmares. Certainly, the horror of two world wars and the rise of fascism had an influence on the explosion...


Lovis Corinth, Vol. 27

Book Description
This splendid and generously illustrated monograph by Horst Uhr is the first comprehensive study of one of the great individualists in the history of art. Lovis Corinth (1858-1925) has long been recognized as a major figure in German painting, along with Emile Nolde and Max Beckmann. Spanning a tremendously fertile period in European painting, his astonishingly productive career touched on major currents of art in his time, from the nineteenth-century academic tradition to Naturalism, Impressionism, and Expressionism. Corinth was accomplished in several media, including painting, drawing, and watercolor. After his death in 1925 virtually every major German city held its own memorial exhibition.
Professor Uhr draws on the artist's own diaries and letters, observations by his family, and writings by contemporaries to...
