Description:

Neuware - Schon als Jugendlicher hatte Bugatti zu seinem Thema gefunden: dem Tier. Genaue Beobachtungsgabe, Einfuhlungsvermögen und eine stupende Beherrschung bildhauerischer Mittel prägen sein Werk. Eindrucksvoll zeigt der Band Bugattis Talent, unvergleichlich lebensnahe Porträts zu erschaffen. In der Tradition des Impressionismus wurzelnd, lässt seine plastische Handschrift Anklänge an Expressionismus und Vorboten des Art Déco erkennen. Zahlreiche Fotografien vermitteln einen lebendigen Eindruck von Bugattis Persönlichkeit und Umfeld. Essays fuhren durch die Stationen seines Lebens in Mailand, Antwerpen und Paris, wo er sich mit nur 1 ahren das Leben nahm. 219 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Rembrandt Bugatti was one of the most remarkable and independently inventive sculptors of the early twentieth century. Although his career was cut short by his tragic suicide at age 31, he produced more than three hundred works, including the small-scale bronze animal sculptures for which he is best known.
           
Rembrandt Bugatti: The Sculptor 1884 1916 offers a comprehensive retrospective of Bugatti’s brief but highly productive career. Making his first professional appearance at the Venice Biennale in 1902, Bugatti followed in the tradition of the great impressionists Medardo Rosso, Edgar Degas, and Auguste Rodin, with additional influences from art nouveau, symbolism, and the elegance of the Belle Époque, the latter through well-known Russian sculptor and friend of the family, Prince Paul Troubetzkoy. Animals remained a common theme throughout Bugatti’s work and presented ample opportunities for experimentation, since they were well-established neither in the academic tradition nor as a theme in art. While his earlier models and maquettes closely mimic the creatures on which they are based, Bugatti’s later, more technically advanced works tend toward geometric abstraction utilizing angular shapes produced with a palette knife. His last sculptures of tigers, in particular, appear almost mechanical and show how truly ahead of his time Bugatti was by the end of his career.
           
In showing the entire range of Bugatti’s work, this beautifully illustrated book reveals the impressive command the artist had over his sculptural ability at such a young age. Together with his striking tendency toward artistic experimentation, it demonstrates why his work remains well-loved and in the permanent collections of many museums today.

About the Author: Philipp Demandt is director of the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Anke Daemgen is a Berlin-based art historian and curator. Together, they are the curators of an accompanying exhibition on Rembrandt Bugatti at the Alte Nationalgalerie.

Book Description Hirmer - Special Museum Cover, 2014. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. This is the catalogue published in 2014 to accompany the magnificent exhibition on Rembrandt Bugatti mounted by the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin. The cover of this edition has Bugatti's Walking Tiger on it, and was specially selected to be sold by the Alte Nationalgalerie and the Sladmore Gallery. Rembrandt Bugatti (1884-1916) is one of the most remarkable and artistically independent sculptors of the early 20th century. Brother of the legendary designer of motorcars, Bugatti produced an œuvre comprising more than 300 works during his short life, unparalleled in terms of intensity and diversity of form. The exhibition in the Alte Nationalgalerie showing more than 100 bronze sculptures, drawings and documents is the first large museum retrospective of Rembrandt Bugatti's work world-wide; it thus paves the way to a brilliant rediscovery of this artist. For even though extremely successful during his lifetime and rated with the highest prices to the present day, Rembrandt Bugatti has fallen into oblivion after his untimely death. Museums in Paris, Washington and Antwerp have sent works on loan to Berlin. The majority of the works on show, however, comes from international private collections in Australia, Europe and America, some of which are displaying their treasures publicly for the first time in the Nationalgalerie.
