Description:

Neuware - Ein Hauptwerk expressionistischer Druckgrafik Mit 50 Ausklapptafeln sowie einem beigelegten Plakat, das alle Varianten der Schlemihl-Folgen zeigt ' Zum ersten Mal werden Kirchners Schlemihl-Folgen in einer bibliophilen und prachtvollen Publikation gewürdigt Der aus einem Titelblatt und sechs Blättern bestehende Holzschnittzyklus 'Peter Schlemihls wundersame Geschichte' nimmt in Ernst Ludwig Kirchners Schaffen eine zentrale Stellung ein. Nach seiner vorzeitigen Entlassung aus dem Kriegsdienst im November 1915 sind innerhalb kurzer Zeit die Illustrationen zu Adelbert von Chamissos gleichnamiger Erzählung entstanden. Die 1813 im Geist der Romantik verfasste Novelle interpretierte er auf ganz subjektive Weise. Er identifizierte sich mit der Hauptfigur, die dem Teufel ihren Schatten verkauft und dadurch zum Außenseiter der Gesellschaft wird. Drangsaliert durch die Zeitumstände, eine durch den Ausbruch des Krieges veränderte Welt, und labil aufgrund seines psychischen Zustands, fühlte sich Kirchner vom Sinn des Daseins, von seinem Leben als Künstler abgeschnitten. Die Schlemihl-Illustrationen sind eine verschlüsselte Selbstdarstellung des leidenden Künstlers. Es existieren fünf komplette Folgen und eine rekonstruierte sowie eine Anzahl Einzelblätter und Probedrucke. Jede der Folgen ist ein Unikat, einmalig in farbiger wie in technischer Hinsicht. Dank zahlreicher Ausklappseiten bietet die prachtvoll bibliophil angelegte Publikation die Möglichkeit, die einzelnen, ganzseitig reproduzierten Motive nebeneinander zu betrachten und miteinander zu vergleichen. Englischsprachige Ausgabe 192 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Widely considered one of the major works of Expressionist printmaking, this series of spectacular woodcuts by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner is presented for the first time in a comprehensive study, specifically designed to allow readers a full understanding of the artist’s achievement. Arguably the greatest of the German Expressionists, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner’s numerous paintings, sculptures, prints, and drawings are loved for their bold colors and dynamics. An admirer of Albrecht Dürer’s woodcuts, Kirchner sought to revitalize the technique for his generation, using a pictorial vocabulary that inspired other Expressionists. This volume presents one of Kirchner’s most important woodcuts series, based on the legend of Faust. Carved during a stay in a sanatorium near Frankfurt, these woodcuts reflect Kirchner’s own tortuous emotions as he tells the story of a man who sells his shadow to the devil. This gorgeous edition features several foldout pages that allow readers to compare and contrast each full-page segment. This book also explores Kirchner’s innovative printmaking technique, which involved sawed up plates stained in monotype style. Essays by Kirchner scholars discuss the series’s vital contribution to the artist’s oeuvre, while exploring his extraordinary use of color, line, and shape to tell a story that is at once universal and highly personal.

About the Author: MAGDALENA M. MOELLER is Director of the Brucke-Museum in Berlin. GUNTHER GERCKEN is a specialist on Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and is working on the new catalogue raisonne of the artist's graphic work (7 volumes).
