Book Description
Avant-garde artists of the 1920s and 30s discovered a new role, that of designers for the printing industry--what is today known as graphic design. As illustrated by the numerous stunning, high quality, color reproductions in this book, designers stripped away printers' ornaments and drawn illustrations; they no longer created captions on the page; and they brought in abstract, geometrical forms, photographs, plain typefaces and simple lettering, white space, and asymmetrical layouts. Included are examples of posters, prints, book designs, and political and commercial ephemera. Avant-Garde Graphics focuses on the designs of many of the leading practitioners of the Modern movement working between 1918 and 1934--from the Dutch members of the De Stijl and the German Bauhaus to the Constructivists of the USSR and central...

Book Description
This book is a collection of twelve articles from the 1995 Berkeley Conference on Dutch Literature, ranging from critical essays on post-war Dutch poets as well as a re-examination of the current literary history of Dutch poetry. It deals with new currents in Dutch poetry, presented by American, Dutch, and Flemish netherlandists.

Hans Richter: Activism, Modernism, and the Avant-Garde

Paperback

Book Description
Few artists spanned the movements of early twentieth-century art as completely as did Hans Richter. Richter was a major force in the developments of expressionism, Dada, De Stijl, constructivism, and Surrealism, and the creator, with Viking Eggeling, of the abstract cinema. Along with Theo van Doesburg, László Moholy-Nagy, El Lissitzky, and a few others, he is one of the artists crucial to an understanding of the role of the arts in the reconstruction era following World War I.

Most American scholars have focused on Richter's film work and have favored a strictly formalist approach that separates art and politics. The contributors to this book rewrite Richter's history to include his pivotal role in the development of the early twentieth-century avant-garde and his political activism. When...

Along with Theo van Doesburg, László Moholy-Nagy, El Lissitzky, and a few others, he is one of the artists crucial to an understanding of the role of the arts in the reconstruction era following World War I. After his emigration to the United States in 1941, he contributed enormously to modernism in the United States and served as an important conduit between the American and European art communities.
