9783858817273: Ernst Beyeler A Passion for Art: Interviews by Christophe Mory

Ernst Beyeler (1921–2010) was a titan of the international art scene in the twentieth century. Born in Basel, Switzerland, he began his career as an apprentice in an antiquarian bookstore, eventually taking over the business and shifting his focus from books to dealing and collecting art. Through his discerning eye for art, his close relationships with many of the twentieth century’s great artists, and his role in the foundation of Art Basel, the world’s largest art fair, Beyeler transformed his hometown into a hub for international art.            Published in English for the first time, A Passion for Art tells Beyeler’s unusually personal story, through interviews with Christophe Mory. Beyeler describes the evolution of his career and his encounters with artists such as Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, and Francis Bacon. He also speaks in detail about his own collection, which focuses mainly on twentieth-century artists like Matisse, Mondrian, Klee, and Dubuffet. This art collection is the basis for the Fondation Beyeler, a museum designed by Renzo Piano that houses over 150 pieces of art handpicked by Beyeler.          Offering deep insight into the contemporary art trade and presenting an intimate portrait of Beyeler himself, A Passion for Art provides a new and distinctive perspective on the postwar European art world.

Book Description Scheidegger und Spiess AG, Verlag, Switzerland, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. As an art dealer, collector, and museum founder, Ernst Beyeler (1921-2010) was a key player in the international art world. Born in Basel (Switzerland), he took over an antiquarian bookshop as a young man and turned it into a gallery that quickly gained international recognition. He formed close relationships with some of the great 20th-century artists and was among the founders of Art Basel, the world s leading art fair. With his exceptional sense for art and artists and his skills as dealer and curator, he made Basel an international art centre. The Fondation Beyeler, the museum designed by Renzo Piano to house Beyeler s private collection and as a stage for highly acclaimed exhibitions, was opened near Basel in 1997. In A Passion for Art, Beyeler tells the story of his career and speaks about collectors and his encounters with the artists he exhibited, Picasso, Giacometti and Bacon in particular. He also talks about his own collection which includes works by some of the great masters of modernism, such as Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, Mondrian, Klee, Giacometti, Dubuffet and Bacon.
