The Cabaret, Appignanesi, Lisa
3 Appignanesi, Lisa
The Cabaret
New Haven, CT Yale University Press 2004 0300105800 / 9780300105803 Revised and Expanded Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Cloth, gilt, ix, 265 pp., illus. (some col.), ports., biblio., index; 25 cm. AS NEW. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "This captivating book presents a uniquely comprehensive cultural history of cabaret, where the most radical of artists, poets, writers, musicians, and theater directors have gathered since 1881. Lisa Appignanesi takes us to the original cabaret - the smoke-filled rooms of the Chat Noir in Paris that served as a meeting place for the avant-garde and a laboratory of subversion against the establishment. She then follows the journey of the cabaret across Europe and to the United States, tracing each development in cabaret history to the present day. This much revised and updated edition of Appignanesi's classic work is enriched with materials that have become more accessible in the post-Soviet era. It also features a variety of new illustrations from both East and West. The book provides a lively look at all aspects of cabaret, where art and entertainment join to mock and provoke, and where radical artistic, literary, and political ideas have found expression for more than 120 years. / Lisa Appignanesi is a writer and broadcaster. She is the author of many books, widely translated, including the acclaimed Freud's Women (with John Forrester), a portrait of Simone de Beauvoir, the highly praised memoir Losing the Dead, and the novel The Memory Man, as well as such best-selling thrillers as Sanctuary and The Dead of Winter. She has made and presented a variety of programs for radio and television in Great Britain and France. She is a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres." - Publisher.

New York Assouline 2006 284323817X / 9782843238178 Hardcover Fine Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
79 pp., illus. (some col.), biblio.; 23 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "Fifty or so artists with a different sensibility and a common determination: to be free of the bourgeois morality and its obsolete traditions. To break with the classicism of the Austro-Hungarian Empire on its decline. The Vienna Secession, founded in 1897, would shape a distinctive form of art in Vienna and all over the world. Gustav Klimt paints his own dreams; poet Hugo Hofmannsthal pens librettos for composer Richard Strauss; Otto Wagner and Josef Hoffman invent design; compatriot Sigmund Freud studies the interpretation of dreams; the young Egon Schiele studies painting and drawing. It's from this atmosphere of artistic, intellectual, and political effervescence that a world is born, notably through the search of a global art which evokes more particularly this wander through the Vienna of 1900." - Publisher.

Cloth, 293 pp., illus. (some col.); 28 cm. Catalogue of an exhibition held at Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, September 10, 2002 to January 6, 2003; Tate Modern, London, February 12 to May 5, 2003; MoMA QNS, New York, June 25 to September 30, 2003. MoMA ed. Firm binding, clean inside copy. First U.S. Edition. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/air, except by special arrangement. "Max Beckmann was among the greatest painters of the 20th century, yet no retrospective of his work has been mounted in the art capitals of New York, London, and Paris in over 30 years. Perhaps the lapse of attention has to do with the importance of abstraction in 20th-century art, and Beckmann's work is always figurative, simultaneously muscular and enigmatic and has enormous and unsettling power. Beckmann began his career as a naturalist and Symbolist in the period before World War I. After the war he developed a unique pictorial style that mixed expressionist color and gesture, mythological and mystical allegory, and the harsh new objectivity of his portrayal of modern life throughout the Nazi reign of terror. A prolific artist in painting, drawing, and printmaking--as well as a powerful sculptor--Beckmann created mysterious images and dense tableaux of unparalleled intensity and complexity during an odyssey that took him from his native Germany to Paris, Amsterdam, St. Louis, and New York. A new examination of Beckmann's role and reputation during the first half of the 20th century has been eagerly awaited. Making use of new scholarship and previously unavailable research materials, this book sheds light on Beckmann's work and his influence on and interactions with the artists of his day. Essays include discussions of Beckmann's Frankfurt cityscapes, his pictures from Italy, his triptychs, his group portraits, and his relationship with cultural politics in the 1920s and 1930s; texts and interviews by artists Leon Golub and Ellsworth Kelly; curator Robert Storr on 'The Beckmann Effect'; and artist William Kentridge on Beckmann's Death. This sumptuous volume is published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition mounted jointly by the Tate Modern, Centre Georges Pompidou, and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. It is the first comprehensive exhibition of Beckmann's work to be seen in the United States since 1984, and the first in New York since 1964." - Publisher.
