About this Item: Künzelsau : Swiridoff, 2010. geb., Ganzleinen, Original-Schutzumschlag, 298 S. : Ill. ; 33 cm; das Buch ist NEU und noch in der Originalfolie eingeschweisst. Buchgewicht über 2001 = 5,90 € Versandkosten; Auslandsversandkosten auf Anfrage Zwei Jubiläen bei Würth! Die Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG blickt auf ihr 65-jähriges Bestehen und der Unternehmer und Sammler Reinhold Würth feiert seinen 75. Geburtstag. Gerne nehmen wir diese beiden bedeutenden Ereignisse zum Anlass, um im Museum Würth in Künzelsau-Gaisbach eine entsprechende Ausstellung zu zeigen. Aus der mittlerweile rund 12.500 Werke umfassenden Sammlung Würth haben wir eine kleine, aber feine Auswahl von 75 Werken aus 75 Jahren getroffen, die - dem Lebenslauf Reinhold Würths folgend - exemplarische Kunstwerke von 1935 bis heute präsentiert. Die Unternehmenssammlung, deren Grundstein der Sammler Reinhold Würth in den 1960er-Jahren legte, dokumentiert zum einen seine sehr persönliche Sicht auf die Kunst, zum anderen bietet sie in ihrer Vielschichtigkeit gleichzeitig die Möglichkeit, die Kunstentwicklung der vergangenen 75 Jahre Revue passieren zu lassen. So wird es ein Wiedersehen mit bereits bekannten Werken geben, aber auch zahlreiche Neuentdeckungen sind in der Ausstellung versammelt. Es mag ein Zufall sein, dass das erste Bild der Sammlung Würth, Emil Noldes Wolkenspiegelung in der Marsch, im Zeitraum des Geburtsjahres des Sammlers entstanden ist. Aber gerade diese Zufälligkeiten machen den Reiz des Sammelns aus und führen oft zu den schönsten Entdeckungen. Hochgeschätzte Künstler von Hans Arp bis Andy Warhol decken das Spektrum der Kunst des 20. Jahrhunderts ab. Mit Daniele Buetti, Markus Redl oder Donna Stolz sind indessen auch jüngere Positionen vertreten. Parallel dazu wird an eigens entworfenen Stationen in der Ausstellung die Firmengeschichte ansprechend dargestellt. So wird die Entwicklung des Unternehmens vom Zweimannbetrieb zur weltweit agierenden Würth-Gruppe spannend vor Augen geführt und im Kontext sowohl persönlicher Begebenheiten der Mitarbeiter als auch der Weltgeschichte nachvollziehbar. Folgende Künstler sind in der Ausstellung und im Katalog vertreten: Yaacov Agam, Josef Albers, Horst Antes, Karel Appel, Hans Arp, Stephan Balkenhol, Hans Baschang, Georg Baselitz, Victor Bauer, Max Beckmann, Max Bill, Fernando Botero, Daniele Buetti, Anthony Caro, Marc Chagall, Eduardo Chillida, Christo, Tony Cragg, Alan Davie, Nicolas De Stael, Richard Deacon, Sonia Delaunay, Jean Dewasne, Jim Dine, Max Ernst, Jean Fautrier, Lyonel Feininger, Rainer Fetting, Barry Flanagan, Lucio Fontana, Günter Fruhtrunk, Katsura Funakoshi, Antony Gormley, HAP Grieshaber, José de Guimarães, Rudolf Hausner, Xenia Hausner, Anne Hausner, Barbara Hepworth, Auguste Herbin, David Hockney, Karl Hofer, Rudolf Hoflehner, Alfred Hrdlicka, Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Jörg Immendorff, Robert Jacobsen, Asger Jorn, Alex Katz, Anselm Kiefer, Herbert Kitzel, Yves Klein, Fernand Léger, Roy Lichtenstein, Bernhard Luginbühl, Markus Lüpertz, Alberto Magnelli, René Magritte, Giacomo Manzu, André Masson, Josef Mikl, Henry Moore, François Morellet, Richard Mortensen, Aurélie Nemours, Emil Nolde, Mimmo Paladino, A.

Device on front wrapper and title page. In good condition, barely. Frontisportrait, (2 ll.), 103 pp., (11 ll., 1 blank l.) *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this book of poems, the author's second book. The frontispiece portrait is after Adriano de Sousa Lopes.Afonso Lopes Vieira (Leiria, 1878-Lisbon, 1946) was Portugal's best traditional poet of the twentieth century. In 1916 he resigned his post as Redactor da Câmara dos Deputados in Lisbon in order to dedicate himself to reading and to poetry. His home, S. Pedro de Moel, became a haven for artists, musicians and writers. He also traveled extensively in Europe and North Africa, and reminiscences of these travels often appear in his works.The author's earliest published works were written as a student at Coimbra, 1897-1900, e.g., Para quê?, 1897, and Náufrago, 1898. From this melancholy phase he passed into a nationalistic one, in which he publicized early Portuguese literature, aiming to "reaportuguesar Portugal tornando-o europeau." During this period he helped prepare an edition of Camões (1928) and edited Montemayor's Diana, the Amadis, and Rodrigues Lobo. His Portuguese translation of the Poema do Cid was published in the review Lusitânia, of which Lopes Vieira served as secretary. He also wrote works for children, e.g, Animais nossos amigos, 1911, and Canto infantil, 1912.*** Innocêncio XXII, 22 (calling for only a total of 124 pp.); see also pp. 22-5, 511-2; XX, 95, 311.

About this Item: Lisbon, Assírio & Alvim, 2000., 2000. Large 8°, original printed wrappers. As new. 541 pp., (1 l.), illustrated. *** Introductory essay by Miguel Tamen, "A poesia" (pp. 7-15), is original to this edition. Alexandre O'Neill [Alexandre Manuel Vahia de Castro O'Neill de Bulhões] (Lisbon, 1924-1986), an important Surrealist artist, poet, and writer, was one of the founders of the Lisbon Surrealist Movement, although he soon split from it. He is known for disrespecting social and literary conventions, for his black humor, and for his love/hate attitude toward Portugal. He made his living as a publicist, and his witty way with words can be seen in his poetry as well.Always appreciated by a select elite, O'Neill?s poetry has been gaining increasing critical recognition in recent years, and O'Neill is becoming recognized as one of the major Portuguese literary figures of the twentieth century. A sculpture of him (of a rather surreal appearance!) was erected in Oeiras in the Parque dos Poetas, which was established in 2003.His first book of poetry, Tempo de fantasmas, was published in 1951, and 1956 saw the publication of No Reino de Dinamarca, perhaps his most successful book of poems.

About this Item: Lisbon, Imprensa Nacional, 1995., 1995. Large 8°, original illustrated wrappers. As new. 574 pp., (8 ll.). *** Alexandre O'Neill [Alexandre Manuel Vahia de Castro O'Neill de Bulhões] (Lisbon, 1924-1986), an important Surrealist artist, poet, and writer, was one of the founders of the Lisbon Surrealist Movement, although he soon split from it. He is known for disrespecting social and literary conventions, for his black humor, and for his love/hate attitude toward Portugal. He made his living as a publicist, and his witty way with words can be seen in his poetry as well.Always appreciated by a select elite, O'Neill?s poetry has been gaining increasing critical recognition in recent years, and O'Neill is becoming recognized as one of the major Portuguese literary figures of the twentieth century. A sculpture of him (of a rather surreal appearance!) was erected in Oeiras in the Parque dos Poetas, which was established in 2003.His first book of poetry, Tempo de fantasmas, was published in 1951, and 1956 saw the publication of No Reino de Dinamarca, perhaps his most successful book of poems. (It appeared again in 1967, 1969, 1974, 1997, and 1999.) *** On O'Neill, see: Maria Antónia Oliveira, Alexandre O'Neill: Uma biografia literária, 2007. Maria Jesus Avila and Perfecto E.

Title printed in red and black. Wood engraved vignettes printed in red. Uncut. In fine condition. (1 blank l.), 62 pp., (1, 1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this brief overview of the history of Portuguese poetry and its sources of inspiration. Lopes Vieira discusses the connection between Portuguese fado and poetry, urging poets to seek inspiration from within Portuguese culture, not from outside influences.Afonso Lopes Vieira (1878-1946) was Portugal's best traditional poet of the twentieth century. In 1916 he resigned his post as Redactor da Câmara dos Deputados in Lisbon in order to dedicate himself to reading and to poetry. His home, S. Pedro de Moel, became a haven for artists, musicians and writers. He also travelled extensively in Europe and North Africa, and reminiscences of these travels often appear in his works.The author's earliest published works were written as a student at Coimbra, 1897-1900, e.g. Para quê?, 1897, and Náufrago, 1898. From this melancholy phase he passed into a nationalistic one, in which he publicized early Portuguese literature, aiming to "reaportuguesar Portugal tornando-o europeau." During this period he helped prepare an edition of Camões (1928) and edited Montemayor's Diana, the Amadis, and Rodrigues Lobo. His Portuguese translation of the Poema do Cid was published in the review Lusitânia, of which Lopes Vieira served as secretary.

Signature of João Henrique Ulrich on front wrapper, with his stamp and shelf number in purple ink on the title page. (1 blank l., 1 l.), 40 pp., (2 ll., 1 blank l.). *** FIRST EDITION, and the only separate one of these poems, the author's fourth published work.Afonso Lopes Vieira (1878-1946) was Portugal's best traditional poet of the twentieth century. In 1916 he resigned his post as Redactor da Câmara dos Deputados in Lisbon in order to dedicate himself to reading and to poetry. His home, São Pedro de Moel, became a haven for artists, musicians and writers. He also travelled extensively in Europe and North Africa, and reminiscences of these travels often appear in his works.Lopes Vieira's earliest published works were written as a student at Coimbra, 1897-1900, e.g. Para quê?, 1897, and Náufrago, 1898. From this melancholy phase he passed into a nationalistic one, in which he publicized early Portuguese literature, aiming to "reaportuguesar Portugal tornando-o europeau." During this period he helped prepare an edition of Camões (1928) and edited Montemayor's Diana, the Amadis, and Rodrigues Lobo. His Portuguese translation of the Poema do Cid was published in the periodical Lusitânia, of which Lopes Vieira served as secretary. He also wrote essays and fiction, as well as works for children, e.g. Animais nossos amigos, 1911 and Canto infantil, 1912.Provenance: João Henrique Ulrich (1880-1956), lawyer, parliamentary deputy, acadamician, publicist and administrator, was a monarchist deputy affiliated with the Regenerador party from 1907 to 1910.
