HANS BURKHARDT: PASTELLE, EINE RETROSPEKTIVE VON 1938-1983

by Peter Selz
Rare - please contact the gallery for further information

A richly illustrated catalogue published for the 1993 Retrospective Exhibition of Hans Burkhardt pastels in Berlin, Germany. Charting Burkhardt's career-long interest in this medium, eminent art historian Peter Selz reflects upon "...the richness of expression and symbolism.." in Burkhardt's pastels of the human figure. Selz observes how Burkhardt's pastels of the late 1930s with their "...powerful expressionist gestures predict the ferocity of De Kooning's figurative work of the early 1950s...they recall the expressionism of the Brucke artists, but also share a great deal of the aesthetic of George Baselitz, Rainer Fetting, and Helmut Middendorf." An excellent representative overview of Burkhardt's remarkable range in his depiction of the figure "...celebrating it as monumental form with an amazing range of expression for human experience..." In English and German.

Joel-Peter Witkin Vanitas

Foreword by Otto M. Urban
Quotes & Images by Joel-Peter Witkin

Joel-Peter Witkin: Vanitas offers a concise survey of one of the most controversial photographers alive. Since the late 1970s, Witkin's black-and-white portraits and still-lifes of hermaphrodites, body parts, severed heads, mutilations and similar themes have inevitably provided shock fodder to the religious right, while seeming to evoke an easy relationship to ideas of decadence and morbidity. Vanitas provides a cross-section of the artist's work from the 1970s to the present.

The Films of Oskar Fischinger, Vol. II

VHS video
Out of print
This videocassette release offers the first opportunity for home viewing. A landmark in the history of film, this represents the first video release of the films of the legendary pioneer of abstract animated films. Featured are seven of Oskar Fischinger's visionary works from the 1920s, 30s and 40s. With resounding influence on generations of film animators and artists, Fischinger's films are at times meditative, poignant, humorous, and psychedelic.
Oskar Fischinger's importance as the pioneering master of abstract animated films is as profound today as it was more than half a century ago in the 1930s. Fischinger's influence impacted the fields of animated film, music and painting through his visionary imagery. The genius of his films and paintings was recognized by many of the great luminaries of the twentieth century in the worlds of art and film; among them Orson Welles, Wassily Kandinsky, Lyonel Feininger, Leopold Stokowski and John Cage. Fischinger's films have been screened and have been the subject of symposiums in museums and film institutions throughout the world.
