About this title


English summary:
In honor of this year's 200th anniversary of the death of Philipp Otto Runge (1777-1810), the Hamburger Kunsthalle and the Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung in Munich are showing a large exhibition dedicated to him. This accompanying catalog provides a comprehensive overview of the complete works of the artist and includes much current research.
The works of Philipp Otto Runge were of central importance for the development of German Romanticism. Because Runge sought a renewal of art through his work, he served as a role model to many. His theory of color was not only of relevance for the artists at the Bauhaus, but was reflected upon again and again well into the 20th Century.
This extensive catalog illustrates from a new perspective the forked path Runge took to create his work. Completely new insights into Runge's way of working are brought about by a project funded by the Philipp Otto Runge Stiftung that is dedicated to the study of the techniques of some of his major works. The book shows all the paintings of the artist as well as a number of his drawings, silhouettes and shadows. German text.

German description: Anlässlich des diesjährigen 200. Todestags von Philipp Otto Runge (1777-1810) zeigen die Hamburger Kunsthalle und die Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung, Muenchen, eine groáe, ihm gewidmete, monographische Ausstellung. Das begleitende Katalog-Buch gibt unter Einbezug der aktuellen Forschung einen umfassenden Überblick ueber das Gesamtwerk des Kuenstlers.
Das Werk von Philipp Otto Runge war fuer die Entwicklung der deutschen Romantik von zentraler Bedeutung. Indem Runge mit seinen Arbeiten eine Erneuerung der Kunst anstrebte, fungierte er fuer viele als Identifikationsfigur. Seine Farbenlehre war nicht nur fuer die Kuenstler am Bauhaus von Relevanz, sondern wurde bis weit ins 20. Jahrhundert hinein immer wieder mitreflektiert.
Der umfangreiche Katalog veranschaulicht anhand eines neuen Blickwinkels auf Runges bildkuenstlerisches Werk den verzweigten Weg des Kuenstlers zu seinen Arbeiten. Völlig neue Erkenntnisse ueber Runges Arbeitsweise bringt ein von der Philipp Otto Runge Stiftung gefördertes Projekt, das der maltechnischen Untersuchung einiger seiner Hauptwerke gewidmet ist. Der Band zeigt alle Gemälde des Kuenstlers sowie eine Vielzahl seiner Handzeichnungen, Scherenschnitte und Schattenrisse.
