Book Description Langewiesche K.R. Jan 1994, 1994. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Astonishing though it may sound, this is the first comprehensive history of Polish Art to appear outside Poland. Not even most specialists are aware that many areas of Poland boast works of Medieval art as rich as anywhere in Western Europe. Furthermore, Poland was the first Northern country to fully adopt the Italian Renaissance. This style of Poland's `Golden Age', lead, in turn, to the unique cultural and artistic expression of Poland's nobility, called `Sarmatism'. The refined 18th century was thoroughly imbued with the latest Italian, French and English fashions in design. The divided and dispossessed country of the 19th century, on the other hand, developed its own national historical subjects and mythologies in painting which culminated in the work of the great artists of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, such as Matejko, Malczewski and Wyspianski. In the 20th Century Poland prided itself again in its participation in international Modernism and Modern art reigned also for most of the decades after WW II. It was the particular cultural and political situation of Postwar Poland which helped to create areas of artistic activity not equalled anywhere else, in church building and poster design. Compact yet comprehensive with 323 illustrations, large and small, with an extensive bibliography and historical as well as geographical maps this book serves as a work of reference as well as a guide. The lengthy Introduction takes on a more specialized theme, not simply the history of Polish art, but the history of Polish art history as a critical and academic discipline. From the 19th century onwards Polish critics were deeply concerned with the issue of a `national art'and a `national style'in architecture and design and the ways in which the past should be analyzed under national auspices. For much of the 20th century Poles had to defend themselves against the intellectual and real intrusions of German imperialism. The position of Polish art history was further strengthened at the end of WW II when vigorous members of the profession engineered the great rebuilding of the historic town centres which soon became Poland's most admired cultural achievement. Ultimately, though, the traditionally inward looking nature of Polish cultural nationalism and the decades of Communist isolation may help to account for the lack of interest for Polish art outside until our days. 108 pp. Deutsch.
