About this Item

No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 255 (1) pp, On the Wilfulness of Painting (Von der Widerborstrigkeit der Malerei) by Christoph Tannert; German Paint, American Eyes, A Global Present (Deutsche Farbe. Amerikanische Augen. Eine Globale Gegenwart) by Graham Bader; The Artist (Die Kunstler): Bios, Exhibitions, and Color Plates with Commentary; Appendix (Anhng); Literature, Photo Credits. Text in German and English. First Edition, 2006. "Born in Germany in the years following the collapse of the Communist regime, the New Leipzig School started when a group of classmates at the Leipzig Academy rediscovered figurative art. Their paintings reflected the melancholy that pervaded East Germany as it struggled with capitalism, high unemployment and depopulation. Fifteen year later, paintings by the Leipzig school and its related movement, Dresden Pop, are conquering the international art market. The authors take on this important trend one painter at a time, analyzing their work and that of other contemporary German artists. Each artist's oeuvre is examined on its own merit and in relation to various factors behind the movements themselves: the onset of the digital age, social disillusionment and individual protest. Breathtaking reproductions allow readers to form their own ideas about what constitutes and drives new German painting, and understand its significance around the world." Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Pictorial paper-covered boards. Size: 4to. Bookseller Inventory # 001604

About this title

Synopsis:

Born in Germany in the years following the collapse of the Communist regime, the New Leipzig School started when a group of classmates at the Leipzig Academy rediscovered figurative art. Their paintings reflected the melancholy that pervaded East Germany as it struggled with capitalism, high unemployment and depopulation. Fifteen year later, paintings by the Leipzig school and its related movement, Dresden Pop, are conquering the international art market. The authors take on this important trend one painter at a time, and also analyse the work of other contemporary German artists. They examine each artist's oeuvre on its own merit and consider various factors behind the movements - the onset of the digital age, social disillusionment and individual protest. Breathtaking reproductions allow readers to form their own ideas about what constitutes and drives new German painting, and understand its significance around the world. This work features: Maike Abetz/Oliver Drescher, Katharina Grosse, Carsten Nicolai; Tomma Abts, Eberhard Havekost, Frank Nitsche; Franz Ackermann, Anton Henning, Neo Rauch; Norbert Bisky, Johannes Kahrs, Anselm Reyle; Daniela Brahm, Kiron Khosla, Daniel Richter; Markus Draper, Ulrich Lamsfuss, David Schnell; Kerstin Drechsel, Robert Lucander, Corinne Wasmuht; Sven Druhl, Michel Majerus, Matthias Weischer; Lukas Duwenhogger, Antje Majewski, Amelie von Wulffen; Martin Eder, Bernhard Martin; and Tim Eitel, Jonathan Meese.
