Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Self-Portrait: Between the Clock and the Bed, the elderly Edvard Munch stands like a sentinel in his bedroom/studio surrounded by the works that constitute his artistic legacy. A powerful meditation on art, mortality, and the ravages of time, this haunting painting conjures up the Norwegian master’s entire career. It also calls into question certain long-held myths surrounding Munch—that his work declined in quality after his nervous breakdown in 1908–9, that he was a commercially naive social outsider, and that he had only a limited role in the development of European modernism. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Verdana} The present volume aims to rebut such misconceptions by freshly examining this enigmatic artist. In the preface, the renowned novelist Karl Ove Knausgaard considers Munch as a fellow creative artist and seeks to illuminate the source of his distinctive talent. The four groundbreaking essays that follow present numerous surprising insights on matters ranging from Munch’s radical approach to self-portraiture to his role in promoting his own career. They also reveal that Munch has been an abiding inspiration to fellow painters, both during his lifetime and up to the present; artists as varied as Jasper Johns, Bridget Riley, Asger Jorn, and Georg Baselitz have acknowledged his influence. More than sixty of Munch’s paintings, dating from the beginning of his career in the early 1880s to his death in 1944, are accompanied by a generous selection of comparative illustrations and a chronology of the artist’s life. The result is an intimate, provocative study that casts new light on Munch’s unique oeuvre—an oeuvre that Knausgaard describes as having gone “where only a painting can go, to that which is beyond words, but which is still part of our reality.”

This book was released on 2017-03-01 with total page 260 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This provocative study argues that some of the most inventive artwork of the 1890s was strongly influenced by the methods of experimental science and ultimately foreshadowed twentieth-century modernist practices. Looking at avant-garde figures such as Maurice Denis, Édouard Vuillard, August Strindberg, and Edvard Munch, Allison Morehead considers the conjunction of art making and experimentalism to illuminate how artists echoed the spirit of an increasingly explorative scientific culture in their work and processes. She shows how the concept of “nature’s experiments”—the belief that the study of pathologies led to an understanding of scientific truths, above all about the human mind and body—extended from the scientific realm into the world of art, underpinned artists’ solutions to the problem of symbolist form, and provided a ready-made methodology for fin-de-siècle truth seekers. By using experimental methods to transform symbolist theories into visual form, these artists broke from naturalist modes and interrogated concepts such as deformation, automatism, the arabesque, and madness to create modern works that were radically and usefully strange. Focusing on the scientific, psychological, and experimental tactics of symbolism, Nature’s Experiments and the Search for Symbolist Form demystifies the avant-garde value of experimentation and reveals new and important insights into a foundational period for the development of European modernism.

Book excerpt: This volume examines various manifestations of anguish in art, literature, and philosophy. It demonstrates that the experience of anguish manifested itself in a spectacular way in the arts in the late 19th – early 20th centuries. It makes obvious the extraordinary tension between anguish and art. The works discussed here reflect the magnitude of anguish generated by historical events, scientific advancements (especially in psychology), and metaphysical inquiries of the time. Through the invention of new artistic languages, those works also illustrate the fecundity of anguish for artists.

Book excerpt: Temelde İnsan: Çağdaş Sanat ve Nörobilim sergi kataloğu, yapıtları nörobilim araştırmalarıyla kesişen yedi çağdaş sanatçının yapıtlarını bir araya getirdi. Küratörlüğünü New York'taki School of Visual Arts, Güzel Sanatlar Bölümü Başkanı Suzanne Anker'ın üstlendiği sergide yer alan sanatçılar: Suzanne Anker, Andrew Carnie, Frank Gillette, Michael Joaquin Grey, Leonel Moura, Rona Pondick ve Michael Rees. Farklı disiplinlerden gelen, temel öğe olarak robotbilim, üç boyutlu tarama, photoshop, hızlı prototipleme, mikroskopla inceleme ve bilgisayar görüntüsü gibi yeni teknolojileri kullanan bu sanatçılar; doğanın gizemlerini, birliğini ve süreçlerini, bilgi ve inançların aktarımını konu alıyor. Madde, algılama ve belleğin zihinde canlandırdığı metaforları yapıtlarına katan sanatçılar bu sayede, kendine özgü kişiselleştirmelerini, mecazi ve simgesel bir yapı çerçevesine oturtmuşlar. Katalog, sanat ve bilimi buluşturarak, sanata farklı bir noktadan, bilim penceresinden bakmaya, çağdaş sanatla nörobilim arasındaki güçlü ilişkiyi anlamaya ve sorgulamaya davet ediyor. ---- Fundamentally Human: Contemporary Art and Neuroscience exhibition brought the work of seven contemporary artists to the fore, whose work addresses aspects of the neurological sciences. Curated by BFA Fine Arts Department Chair of the School of Visual Arts in New York Suzanne Anker, the exhibition included works by the artists Suzanne Anker, Andrew Carnie, Rona Pondick, Michael Joaquin Grey, Michael Rees, Frank Gillette and Leonel Moura. Each interdisciplinary artist essentially employed new technologies ranging from robotics, 3-D scanning, Photoshop, rapid prototyping, microscopy and computational video. All were concerned with the mysteries and unity of nature and its processes, the transmission of knowledge and beliefs, and the reveries of human metaphors of being in time.

Download Becoming Edvard Munch PDF Format Full Free by Jay Anne Clarke and published by . This book was released on 2009 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Two potent myths have traditionally defined our understanding of the artist Edvard Munch (1862-1944): he was mentally unstable, as his iconic work The Scream (1893) suggests, and he was radically independent, following his own singular vision. Becoming Edvard Munch: Influence, Anxiety, and Myth persuasively challenges these entrenched perceptions. In this book, Jay A. Clarke demonstrates that Munch was thoroughly in control of his artistic identity, a savvy businessman skilled in responding to the market and shaping popular opinion. Moreover, the author shows that Munch was keenly aware of the art world of his day, adopting motifs, styles, and techniques from a wide variety of sources, including many Scandinavian artists. By presenting Munch's paintings, prints, and drawings in relation to those of European contemporaries, including Harriet Backer, James Ensor, Vincent van Gogh, Max Klinger, Christian Krohg, and Claude Monet, Clarke reveals often surprising connections and influences. This interpretive approach, grounded in Munch's diaries and letters, period criticism, and the artworks themselves, reintroduces Munch as an artist who cultivated myths both visual and personal. Becoming Edvard Munch features beautiful color reproductions of approximately 150 works, including 75 paintings and 75 works on paper by Munch and his peers"--Book jacket.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Norwegian painter, novelist, and social critic Christian Krohg (1852�1925) is best known for his highly political paintings of workers, prostitutes, and Skagen fishermen of the 1880s and for serving as a mentor to Edvard Munch. One of the Nordic countries� most avant-garde naturalist artists, he was highly influenced by French thinkers, including Emile Zola, Claude Bernard, and Hippolyte Taine, and shocked the provincial sensibilities of his time. Krohg�s work reached beyond the art world when his book Albertine and its related paintings were banned upon publication. The story of a young seamstress who turns to a life of prostitution, it galvanized support for outlawing prostitution in Norway, but Krohg was punished for its sexual content. In Christian Krohg�s Naturalism, Oystein Sjastad examines the theories of Krohg and his fellow naturalists and their reception in Scandinavian intellectual circles, viewing Krohg from an international perspective and demonstrating how Krohg�s art made a striking contribution to European naturalism. In the process, he provides the definitive account of Krohg�s art in the English language.

Book excerpt: Everyone knows what it is to be afraid. But phobias take the normal (and even helpful!) human emotion of fear to a much more visceral, even primal, place. For some people, it’s a spider that does it. For others it’s a clown, or a trans-Atlantic flight, or even just a puddle of water. It’s the thing that stops us in our tracks, sets our hearts racing, and stands our hairs on end. Scared Stiff takes readers on a journey through these experiences—using biology, psychology, and history (not to mention pop culture) to explain where our phobias came from, how they affect us, and how we might eventually overcome them.
