Book Description Taschen Verlag Mrz 2009, 2009. Buch. Book Condition: Neu. 465x332x79 mm. Neuware - Im Jahr 1998 stellte TASCHEN mit The Art of Pleasure die meisterliche Kunst von Touko Laaksonen vor, besser bekannt als Tom of Finland. Zuvor hatte Laaksonen zwar Kultstatus in der internationalen Homosexuellenszene, war jedoch dem breiteren Publikum weitgehend unbekannt. Mit The Art ofPleasure erlangte Tom die wohlverdiente Anerkennung, und die Zahl seiner Fans vervielfachte sich. Tom of Finland XXL wird ihm für immer einen Platz inden Sphären der schönen Künste sichern. Das 29 x 40,5 cm große und 704 Seiten starke Werk Tom of Finland XXL enthält beinahe 1000 Abbildungen aus sechs Jahrzehnten der Karriere des Künstlers. Die Zusammenstellung von Arbeiten aus allen bekannten Sammlungen in den USA und Europa entstand mit Hilfe der Tom of Finland Foundation. Sie enthält unter anderem zahlreiche Gemälde, Zeichnungen und vorbereitende Skizzen, die noch nie in Buchform publiziert worden sind.Andere Bilder wurden bisher nur zusammenhanglos präsentiert underscheinen hier in der von Tom vorgesehenen Reihenfolge, so dass ihrkünstlerischer Wert und ihre erotische Wirkung voll zur Geltung kommen können. Dieser elegante Band im Großformat zeigt die gesamte Palette seines Talents: Einfühlsame Porträts, Darstellungen offener sexueller Begierde, zärtliche Liebesbezeugungen sowie Toms unvergessliche Tribute an junge Männer, die dem AIDS-Virus zum Opfer fielen. Diese Sammlerausgabe wird vervollständigt von acht speziell in Auftraggegebenen Essays über Toms gesellschaftlichen und persönlichen Einfluss von Camille Paglia, John Waters, Armistead Maupin, Todd Oldham undanderen sowie einer wissenschaftlichen Analyse einzelner Zeichnungendurch den Kunsthistoriker Edward Lucie-Smith. Alle Männer - oder Frauen -,die finden, größer sei besser, wird Tom of Finland XXL garantiert zufriedenstellen. 666 pp. Französisch, Deutsch, Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783822826072
