Born near Minsk in White Russia, the painter Chaim Soutine (1894-1943) created his major works in France between the two World Wars. He is identified with the School of Paris, the group of artists, many of them foreign-born and Jewish, who lived and worked in the French capital between the wars. Known as a "painter's painter", Soutine worked with unreserved gesture and emotion, using exuberant color, thickly applied paint, and sweeping brushwork.Chaim Soutine is a comprehensive, ground-breaking book that rediscovers this important artist, providing an overview of his life, work, and aesthetic influence, as well as his critical reception. Essays by leading scholars and curators assess Soutine's art from new vantage points, including the changing critical reception of his work in Paris between the wars, as well as in the US and France in the aftermath of World War II and the Holocaust. The essays also examine the influence of Soutine's Jewish and French immigrant background on his work and reception, and introduce us to his important patrons and major collectors. These included Albert Barnes, the famous Philadelphia collector, who discovered Soutine's work in 1922-23 and purchased 52 of his paintings.The book features presentations and information never published before, including a photo-essay composed of rare photographs of the artist, newly discovered correspondence between Soutine and the French art historian Elie Faure, and the first radiographic analysis of the artist's work, which brings to light new evidence about Soutine's use of materials and his process of painting.

The Routledge Companion to Expressionism in a Transnational Context is a challenging exploration of the transnational formation, dissemination, and transformation of expressionism outside of the German-speaking world, in regions such as Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltics and Scandinavia, Western and Southern Europe, North and Latin America, and South Africa, in the first half of the twentieth century. Comprising a series of essays by an international group of scholars in the fields of art history and literary and cultural studies, the volume addresses the intellectual discussions and artistic developments arising in the context of the expressionist movement in the various art centers and cultural regions. The authors also examine the implications of expressionism in artistic practice and its influence on modern and contemporary cultural production. Essential for an in-depth understanding and discussion of expressionism, this volume opens up new perspectives on developments in the visual arts of this period and challenges the traditional narratives that have predominantly focused on artistic styles and national movements.

For a couple of decades before World War II, a group of immigrant painters and sculptors, including Amedeo Modigliani, Marc Chagall, Chaim Soutine and Jules Pascin dominated the new art scene of Montparnasse in Paris. Art critics gave them the name "the School of Paris" to set them apart from the French-born (and less talented) young artists of the period. Modigliani and Chagall eventually attained enormous worldwide popularity, but in those earlier days most School of Paris painters looked on Soutine as their most talented contemporary. Willem de Kooning proclaimed Soutine his favorite painter, and Jackson Pollack hailed him as a major influence. Soutine arrived in Paris while many painters were experimenting with cubism, but he had no time for trends and fashions; like his art, Soutine was intense, demonic, and fierce. After the defeat of France by Hitler's Germany, the East European Jewish immigrants who had made their way to France for sanctuary were no longer safe. In constant fear of the French police and the German Gestapo, plagued by poor health and bouts of depression, Soutine was the epitome of the tortured artist. Rich in period detail, Stanley Meisler's Shocking Paris explores the short, dramatic life of one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century.

Das Thema "Kunst im Dienst der Nation" wird so lange nicht an Brisanz verlieren, wie der Nationalismus in Politik und Gesellschaft auch die Ausdrucksmittel der Bildenden Kunst zu seinen Zwecken nutzt, beispielsweise um Identität nationaler Gruppen durch Bilder, Skulpturen und Architekturen zu stiften oder zu bekräftigen, aber auch um diese Konstrukte mit den Mitteln der Kunst zu attackieren. Die in diesem Band versammelten Beiträge zeigen exemplarisch, auf welche Weise die Kunst zur Formung nationaler Identitäten beigetragen hat. Das Thema wird aus zwei verschiedenen Blickwinkeln fokussiert: Einerseits geht es um die künstlerischen Konstruktionen nationaler Kunst. Analysiert werden sowohl nationale Ikonographien als auch die nationalen Aufladungen bestimmter Materialien, Farben, Techniken oder Ornamente. Andererseits widmet sich der Band jedoch auch der nationalen Vereinnahmung, Instrumentalisierung und Kategorisierung von Kunstwerken, wie sie von der Kunstkritik, der Kunstgeschichte, den Museen oder anderen Institutionen betrieben werden. Da der Nationalismus erst um 1800 zu einem wesentlichen Sinnstiftungs- und Orientierungsmuster wurde, ist der Blick in besonderem Maße auf die Kunst der Moderne gerichtet. Gleichwohl wurden bewusst auch Vor- und Frühformen einer sich patriotisch gebärdenden Kunst ins Blickfeld einbezogen. Die daraus resultierende Bandbreite bietet einen vielschichtigen Querschnitt durch die kunsthistorische Nationalismus-Forschung.

Ooh la la! Gwen ends up on a Parisian scavenger hunt—with a cute French ami—in this M!X novel from the author of Lost in London. Gwen Russell is thrilled to hear she will be heading to Paris with her family. Even though the main reason for the trip is to see her three older brothers play lacrosse, Gwen and her Mom have plans to tour the city when they can. As soon as they land, Gwen is swept up in the city she has always wanted to see, and even meets a très cute boy named Henri. If that wasn't enough excitement, Gwen finds out that her all-time favorite band is playing a one-night only concert in Paris—and there are tickets available to the sold-old show for three lucky people. The catch? Fans who want a golden ticket have to work for it via a scavenger hunt around the City of Light. Through cryptic clues blasted out every day through a special website, Gwen and her new friends find themselves in a race against time—and against other die-hard fans—as they scramble to landmarks throughout Paris. And it turns out the concert tickets might not even be the biggest prize...

Beginning with the simple question, "Why did audiences grow silent?" Listening in Paris gives a spectator's-eye view of opera and concert life from the Old Regime to the Romantic era, describing the transformation in musical experience from social event to profound aesthetic encounter. James H. Johnson recreates the experience of audiences during these rich decades with brio and wit. Woven into the narrative is an analysis of the political, musical, and aesthetic factors that produced more engaged listening. Johnson shows the gradual pacification of audiences from loud and unruly listeners to the attentive public we know today. Drawing from a wide range of sources—novels, memoirs, police files, personal correspondence, newspaper reviews, architectural plans, and the like—Johnson brings the performances to life: the hubbub of eighteenth-century opera, the exuberance of Revolutionary audiences, Napoleon's musical authoritarianism, the bourgeoisie's polite consideration. He singles out the music of Gluck, Haydn, Rossini, and Beethoven as especially important in forging new ways of hearing. This book's theoretical edge will appeal to cultural and intellectual historians in many fields and periods.

Band 11 der Akten des XI. Internationalen Germanistenkongresses Paris 2005 befasst sich mit neuen Fragen zur Klassik, zur Pariser Moderne und zum literarischen Streit um die Moderne. Im Vordergrund der Sektion «Klassiken, Klassizismen, Klassizität» stehen zunächst Goethe und Schiller, die der alten Frage nach den deutschen klassischen Schriftstellern um 1800 wieder zu neuer Aktualität verhalfen. Auch wenn beiden eine breite Rezeption ihrer klassischen Werke zunächst versagt blieb, setzten sie doch neue ästhetische Werte und Normen durch ihre «Literaturpolitik». Im Anschluss daran wird untersucht, welche Bedeutung die Klassikerverehrung für das Schaffen und die Haltung jener Schriftsteller hatte, die im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert den Begriff Klassizität für sich in Anspruch nahmen. Der Begriff der «Moderne» wird in der Sektion «Kulturmetropole Paris im Zeichen der Moderne» im Sinne Baudelaires als ästhetische Moderne verstanden. Der Parisbezug wird unter den Aspekten ästhetische Moderne, Ästhetik und Politik, sowie Paris als Gegenstand behandelt. Dabei ist auch Paul Celans Dichtung Gegenstand poetologischer und interkultureller Diskussionen. Abschliessend wird in «Der Streit um die literarische Moderne» literarische Moderne als komplexer und schillernder Begriff und als Zeit der Umbrüche und Blickwechsel verstanden. Es wird aufgezeigt, wie sich die literarische Moderne im Streit zwischen traditionell-konservativen und revolutionär-innovativen Tendenzen der Ästhetik sowie im Konflikt zwischen Stagnation und Dynamik auch als produktiver Schock erweist.

The first volume of the new series “European Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies” focuses on the relation between the avant-garde, modernism and Europe. It combines interdisciplinary and intermedial research on experimental aesthetics and poetics. The essays, written by experts from more than fifteen countries, seek to bring out the complexity of the European avant-garde and modernism by relating it to Europe’s intricate history, multiculturalism and multilingualism. They aim to inquire into the divergent cultural views on Europe taking shape in avant-garde and modernist practices and to chart a composite image of the “other Europe(s)” that have emerged from the (contemporary) avant-garde and experimental modernism. How did the avant-garde and modernism in (and outside) Europe give shape to local, national and pan-European forms of identity and community? To what extent does the transnational exchange and cross-fertilisation of aesthetic tendencies illustrate the well-rehearsed claim that the avant-gardes form a typically European phenomenon? Dealing with canonised as well as lesser known exponents of modernism and the avant-garde throughout Europe, this book will appeal to all those interested in European cultural, literary and art history.

Ulrich Weisstein's collection of 21 essays offers a comparative study of Expressionism as a Modernist movement whose dynamic core lay in Germany and Austria-Hungary, but which transformed artistic practices in other European countries. The focus, Weisstein argues, “must be strictly and sharply aimed at a specific body of works and opinions—a relatively dense core surrounded by a less clearly defined fringe zone—indigenous to the German speaking countries.” The volume spans an “Expressionist” period extending from roughly 1910 to 1925. Weisstein himself contributes two introductory chapters on problems of definition and a thoughtful analysis of English Vorticism. An ample context is set by comparative essays concerned with international movements such as Futurism that had an impact on German Expressionist drama, prose, and poetry, together with essays on the adaptation of Expressionist forms in countries such as Poland, Russia, Hungary, South Slavic nations and the United States. These essays call attention to representative authors and artists, as well as to periodicals and artistic circles. Reviewers have praised not only the presentation of “literary links and interaction” among national cultures, but especially the “most rewarding” interdisciplinary essays on Dada and on Expressionist painting, music, and film.

Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Emil Nolde, E.-L. Kirchner, Paul Klee, Franz Marc sowie die Österreicher Oskar Kokoschka und Egon Schiele gehörten der Generation der höchst individuellen Künstler an, die zu der impulsiven und oft auch kontroversen neuen Bewegung des Expressionismus in Deutschland und Österreich des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts beitrugen. Diese Publikation stellt ihre Arbeit vor und verbindet sie mit dem kulturellen Kontext und weiteren Bewegungen jener Zeit. Die Autorin, die Kunsthistorikerin Ashley Bassie, erklärt, wie die expressionistische Kunst den Weg zu einer neuen, intensiven, bewegenden Betrachtung psychologischer, emotionaler und sozialer Themen des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts bereitete. Dieses Buch untersucht die Entwicklung des Expressionismus und seine Hauptwerke und hebt die oft intensiven subjektiven Bilder, ihr Streben sowie die Konflikte hervor, aus denen der Expressionismus hervorging.
