Hardcover. 8vo. Amalthea Verlag Wien. 1929. 122 pgs. No DJ. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards lightly worn and scuffed. Photos sent upon request. 798; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 122 pages; Hans Böhler (1884 Vienna Ė 1961 Vienna) Hans Böhler began his art education as a student at the private school, Jaschke in Vienna and later at the Vienna Akademie. During this period, Bohler was personal friends with fellow artists Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. In 1905 he became member of the artist group Jungbund as well as Künstlerhaus Wien (The Vienna Artistís Association) founded by Carl Hollitzer. Boehler joined the Hagenbund (a local artistís club also known as Künstlerbund Hagen) after it was formed in 1899. Works by Bohler were shown in the Kunstschau-1908 (Art Show Vienna, 1908, considered a landmark event in Viennese modernism ) led by Gustav Klimt and Joseph Hoffman as well as Vienna Secession s spring-exhibition. In 1909 he joined the avant-garde Neukunstgruppe (New Art Group) founded by Egon Schiele with members Albert Paris Gütersloh, Oskar Kokoschka, Franz Wiegele and Anton Faistauer, and exhibited together with them in the known Vienna gallery Salon Pisko. He travelled to Russia, China, Japan and India (1910/11) as well as to South- and North-America in 1913/14. In 1914 he shared a studio in Krumau, Czech Republic with Egon Schiele and Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel. In the same year, Bohler commissioned Egon Schiele to paint a portrait of his companion Friederike Beer Monti. Three years later another portrait of Beer Monti was executed by Gustav Klimt. Exhibitions of his works took place in Copenhagen, Stockholm and Munich and a solo-show was organized by the Vienna Gallery Arnot. In 1919/1920 he lived in Tessin and Zurich, Switzerland and then he settled again in Vienna and started showing his works in The Secession s exhibitions. His studio interior was planned by architect and friend Josef Hoffmann. In 1928 Bohler became member of the Österreichische Werkbund (Austrian Cultural Association co-founded by Adolf Bachoften and Joseph Hoffmann) for whom he designed postcards and in 1936 he was honored with the Österreichischen Staatspreis (the Austrian State prize). From 1936 to 1950 he lived in the USA and then returned to Austria. In 1954 the City of Vienna awarded him with the city s Honorary Prize. Being the same generation as Kokoschka and Schiele, Bohler is considered very important and closely connected to developments in early Austrian expressionism. Boehler was interested in bringing color to maximal independence without undermining the strength of the narrative. Bookseller Inventory # 24427

Store Description

I have been selling books for 20 years. I am a specialist in out of print and rare academic titles, art, history, military history and what I like to loosely describe as "Old and Interesting." Here is a helpful list of book terms that I use: Terms for Describing Condition These terms apply to books, dust jackets and magazines. As New is when the book is in the same immaculate condition in which it was published. There are no defects and the dust jacket, if issued with one, is perfect. Fine approaches the condition of "As New," but without being crisp. There may be minor defects, which are noted. Very Good describes a book that does show some small signs of wear but no tears on either binding or paper. Any defects are noted. Good describes the average used and worn book that has all pages or leaves present. All defects are noted. Fair is a well-worn book that has complete text pages but may lack endpapers, half title page, etc. All defects are noted. Poor describes a book that is sufficiently worn so that its only merit is as a reading copy. This book may be soiled, scuffed, stained or spotted and may have loose joints, hinges, pages, etc. All defects are noted. Ex-library books are always noted as such regardless of condition. Book Club Editions (BCE) are always noted as such regardless of condition. Boards are the actual hardcover material of the cover, front and back. Bookplate is usually a square illustrated sticker on which an owner writes his or her name, or on which the author has signed his or her name. Bumped refers to the bent or rounded corners of the boards. Browning or tanning refers to brown or tan looking pages or page edges that appear in some older books. Chip is a tiny piece missing from the edge of the dust jacket. Closed tear is a tiny rip in the dust jacket, but no material is missing (as in a chip). It can be "shut" and protected from further tearing with a Mylar cover. Cocked means the book is no longer square. If laid down, the book appears to be pushed (slanted) forward or backward from the spine. Creasing is where the dust jacket or pages have been bent, and then returned to its original state. Dampstain is a tan or gray stain resulting from water or other liquid damage. End papers or pastedowns are the sheets of paper pasted onto the inner covers, joining the book block to the covers. One side of the sheet is pasted to the inside cover, the other is left free (see FFEP). FFEP stands for front free-endpaper. This is the first page of any book. Though usually blank, it is a common place for an inscription. Foxing is the term used for the rust colored spots which occur on paper. This is the result of oxidation of both organic and iron impurities left behind during the paper making process. Front, top or bottom edge: These are the outside page edges. Loose is what happens to a book which has been read several times. The cover easily flaps open and the pages do not return to a tight condition. Heal or tail is the bottom of the spine. Head is the top of the spine. Mass-Market paperback is the most common paperback book, about four inches wide and seven inches high. Seen most often as "popular" fiction, science fiction and romance books. Mylar cover is the clear film that most fine bookshops use to cover and protect the dust jackets. Spine separation occurs at the head (top) of the spine where the fingers grab and pull the book from the shelf. After repeated pulling, the glue holding the outer spine board to the inner binding separates. Sunned is the fading of paper or binding as a result of sun exposure. Trade paperback is a softcover book which is generally large in size and made of better quality materials than a Mass-Market paperback. Wraps are the outer covers of a softcover (paperback) book or pamphlet.
