Hinterer EInband mit einigen leichten Druckstellen, ansonten in sehr gutem Zustand. Namenszug auf Vorsatz geschwärzt. Texte in englischer und hebräischer Sprache. - his album is dedicated to a lesser known aspect of the famous pianist Felicja Blumental: her practice of expressing herself in drawing, her connections with painters, and her deep involvement with the visual arts. On her concert tours she and her husband frequently visited artists' studios, galleries and museums in Europe, the United States and South America, and the couple formed personal and friendly connections with important painters, among them Kokoschka, Chagall, Van Dongen, Foujita and Pons. In many Gases these encounters were memorialized by a drawing or a painting of the portrait of Felicja Blumental, and a selection of these appears in this album. In most of the portraits Felicja is concentrated and attentive, introverted and refined. In each portrait one may discem the personal Couch of the artist; thus she is more colorful in the one by Kees van Dongen, who in his early period was a Fauvist painter, while in the portraits by Tsugouharu Foujita the coloring is more uniform and the delicate live is suffused with the tradition of Japanese art. While her portraits were being painted, Felicja Blumental drew the artists. For her portrait of the eighty-year-old Van Dongen she earned a compliment from the artist, which he wrote on the drawing itself (see p. 48): "It is me without being me — but who/ Kiki". Felicja Blumental's drawings, especially Chose from the fifties and sixties, reveal a new and penetrating perception. Using almost Grude, but sensitive and boldly expressive techniques, she captured the personalities of the personages who fascinated her. The list of the portraits she drew includes impressive figures: Picasso, Chagall, Man6-Katz, Juan Pons, Nathalie Gontcharova, Fontana. Besides painters she also drew composers, pianists, violinists, Bingers and other artists. At times the drawing was done hastily on random pieces of paper — invitations, catalogues, and concert programs, and at times in small albums which she carried in her purse. The drawings are moving testimonies of Felicja Blumental's cultural and artistic world: composers she worked with, who dedicated works to her, such as Heitor Villa-Lobos, or pianists she associated with, such as Arthur Rubinstein. She frequently drew the portrait of her husband, Markus Mizne, with whom she shared her love for art, music, painting and poetry. (Vorwort) Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 400.

Book Description: Tel Aviv Museum of Art, 1999. Cloth. Book Condition: Fine/As new. 64pp. English and Hebrew. An elegant collection with many color reproductions. Astonishing array of portraits by the famous pianist, whose art was unknown until this exhibition. She knew Kokoschka and Chagall, and her work is reminiscent of theirs, but not derivative. Felicja Blumental was born into a musical family, daughter of a violinist. She began piano lessons at the age of five, and made her debut at the age of ten. She studied at the National Conservatory in Warsaw, taking piano lessons from Zbigniew Drzewiecki (who founded the International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition) and composition lessons from the composer Karol Szymanowski. She later studied privately in Switzerland with Józef Turczynski, a noted Chopin interpreter and scholar.In 1938, she and her husband Markus Mizne moved first to Nice, then to Brazil to escape the growing anti-semitism in Europe. She became a Brazilian citizen, and for the rest of her life championed the music and composers of her adopted country. Her subsequent career saw her settling in Milan in 1962, then in 1973 in London.Blumental's repertoire was wide and adventurous, ranging from the Portuguese baroque to South American contemporary works. Her numerous recordings also included many forgotten concertos by composers such as Carl Czerny, Ferdinand Ries and John Field. Heitor Villa-Lobos wrote his fifth piano concerto for her, and Krzysztof Penderecki dedicated his Partita for harpsichord and orchestra to her. Her recording of this work won a Grand Prix du Disque of the Charles Cros Academy of France in 1975.It is, however, her Chopin playing for which she will be most remembered. A pianist of considerable power, despite her diminutive size, her recordings of the Chopin mazurkas, in particular, are considered landmark interpretations.She died in 1991 in Israel, on one of her many concert tours of the country. She is buried in Tel Aviv's Kiryat Shaul Cemetery. Her daughter, the singer Annette Celine, is one of the organizers of the Felicja Blumental International Music festival, held annually. (Wikipedia).
