Synopsis: Hundertwasser was a key figure in the international avant-garde art scene in the years just after World War II. This volume takes a close look at an under-studied aspect of his work: the deep influence of Japanese art and philosophy that can be traced in his painting.
Like many European artists in the 1950s, Hundertwasser viewed the Far East as a source of a new, more open concept of art, free of the dispiriting weight of the Western tradition. He was fascinated by the striking woodcuts of Japanese masters Hiroshige and Hokusai, and his study of their work, along with his long-lasting engagement with Taoism and Zen Buddhism, greatly influenced his experimental compositions and action paintings of the period. An early friendship with Akria Kito and his 1961 marriage to his Japanese life partner provided further fuel to Hundertwasser’s artistic explorations.
A beautifully produced volume that offers a wholly new way of thinking about a potent figure in twentieth-century art, Hundertwasser will appeal to fans of the European and Japanese traditions alike.

About the Author: Agnes Husslein-Arco is an art historian and director of the Belvedere Gallery in Vienna, where Harald Krejci and Axel Köhn are curators of exhibit that accompanies this volume.

Book Description Munich: Hirmer., 2013. Kartoniert. Buchblockbindung. Book Condition: Wie neu. 255 Seiten, mit graphischen Darstellungen. Illustrierter Originalkartonband in neuwertigem Zustand. - Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928 2000) hat mit seinem Frühwerk maßgeblich die internationale Kunstszene der Nachkriegsavantgarde mitgeprägt. Schwerpunkt des Ausstellungskatalogs ist u. a. der Einfluss der japanischen Kunst und Philosophie auf Hundertwassers Arbeiten der 1950er und frühen 60er Jahre.Wie viele europäische Künstler, die den Fernen Osten in den 1950ern als neuen Anhaltspunkt einer offeneren Kunstauffassung sahen, interpretierte Hundertwasser Gedanken des Taoismus und des Zen-Buddhismus. Sein Frühwerk belegt mit einer prozessualen Malweise, experimentellen Bildkompositionen und Malaktionen seine künstlerische Reife. Die Freundschaft mit Akira Kito sowie die Hochzeit mit seiner japanischen Lebensgefährtin 1961 unterstreichen sein Interesse an der japanischen Kunst und Kultur. Der Band zeigt die Einflüsse der japanischen Avantgarde auf das Frühwerk Hundertwassers und stellt die Arbeiten in den Kontext der internationalen Avantgarde zwischen Tokio, Rom, Paris, Hamburg und Venedig.

Book Description Hirmer Verlag, 2013. Book Condition: new. Vienna, Belvedere, 6 march - 30 june 2013. English text. München, 2013; hardback, pp. 256, 160 b/w and col. ill. and plates, cm 24x29. Like many European artists in the 1950s who perceived the Far East as a new reference point for a more open concept of art, Hundertwasser sought inspiration from Taoism and Zen Buddhism. He was also fascinated by the Japanese woodcuts of Hiroshige and Hokusai. His procedural approach to painting, his experimental compositions and his painting actions in the late 1950s led to the development of a mature, but idiosyncratic, style which was equal to that of artists of the international avant-garde. His early friendship with Akira Kito and also his marriage with his Japanese life partner in 1961 during his sojourn in Japan are further links which fuelled Hundertwasser's interest in Japanese art and culture.
