A pocket-size introduction to the great twentieth-century German painter. Hans Purrmann (1880-1966) is among the most important painters in the history of twentieth-century art. His use of vibrant color drew on the works of Henri Matisse, with whom he was friends, and Paul Cézanne, but he achieved independent international acclaim over the course of an eventful life lived in Munich, Paris, Berlin, Florence, and Switzerland. With irrepressible curiosity, attentiveness, and an unerring eye for the beauty of the primal and essential, he produced works that pushed the bounds of representational painting. In 1955 Purrmann was included in the first documenta exhibit in Kassel, established to reconnect West Germany to the international art scene after World War II and to showcase art that had been deemed "degenerate" by the Nazi regime. In 1962 he was the subject of a major retrospective at the Haus der Kunst in Munich and was hailed by the press as a sensation. Based on new sources, this book presents the life and work of Hans Purrmann and situates the painter as a prominent protagonist in twentieth-century art history.

A student--and later close friend--of Henri Matisse, German artist Hans Purrmann, born in 1880, is illuminated in this long-overdue catalogue raisonné, which focuses on the artist's impressive oeuvre of watercolors and gouaches and contains more than 400 catalogued works from his student days through 1965--one year before his death. Purrmann's friendship with Matisse and his deep exploration of Paul Cézanne's work had a marked influence on his own art and writing. Like members of the German Expressionist group Die Brücke, Purrmann reinvigorated the use of watercolor as a primary medium; during the 1920s and 30s, he was one of the most accomplished watercolorists in Germany. In his later years, Purrmann traveled through Italy, creating many of his landscape masterworks. Notable among these is a series of breathtaking and fragile works on paper that were produced in Levanto in the 1960s.

Ein Meister der Farben und ambitionierter Weltbürger: Hans Purrmann (1880?1966) war als Künstler und Persönlichkeit, als Stilist und gesellschaftliche Integrationsfigur eine verbindende Instanz in der Moderne Europas. Schwebend leicht ist in seinen Bildern das Gleichgewicht zwischen der Wiedergabe des Gesehenen und der visuellen Reflexion der Malerei als Ausdrucksform.00Schon in jungen Jahren ist Purrmann in München und Berlin mit den aktuellsten Strömungen der Kunst seiner Zeit konfrontiert gewesen, doch mit der Übersiedlung nach Paris findet er im Künstlerkreis des Café du Dôme Anschluss an die Avantgarde. Er wird Schüler und Freund von Henri Matisse und betreibt mit ihm gemeinsam eine Kunstschule. Die politischen Zeitläufe und die Weltkriege haben Purrmann zu einem durch Europa ziehenden Künstler werden lassen, der seine den Schönheiten der Welt entlehnten Motive jedoch an jedem Ort zu finden weiß. Das Buch bietet einen repräsentativen Querschnitt durch dieses von farbiger Opulenz geprägte Werk.00Exhibition: Kunstforeningen GL Strand, Kopenhagen, Denmark (27.04. - 15.09.2019).

Hans Hofmann (1880-1966) is one of the most important figures of postwar American art, for both his own abstract paintings and his influence as the legendary teacher of generations of artists in Germany, New York, and Provincetown. His presence in New York, a link to Wassily Kandinsky, the Cubists, and Fauves, catalyzed the movement ultimately known as Abstract Expressionism, whose influence still pervades the aesthetic categories and practices of art today. This volume features essays on Hofmann's life and work by Helmut Friedel and Tina Dickey; excerpts from Hofmann's own statements; full documentation of his career (including chronology, selected bibliography, and comprehensive list of solo and group exhibitions); and thirty-two large colorplates of works from 1942 to 1965 by this supreme colorist, his finest paintings from European and American collections. They richly represent his unique painting style, which conveys a deeply personal experience of color that has lost none of its power to fascinate the viewer.

Erst vor wenigen Jahren haben Museen in Deutschland begonnen, ihre Geschichte während des Nationalsozialismus aufzuarbeiten. Ein übergeordneter Blick auf Funktionsweisen, Entwicklung und Relevanz der Institution Museum im »Dritten Reich« steht noch aus. Der Band, der die Ergebnisse einer internationalen Tagung der Richard-Schöne-Gesellschaft für Museumsgeschichte e.V. und des Deutschen Historischen Museums in Berlin im Juni 2013 präsentiert, ermöglicht erstmals eine grundsätzliche Annäherung, unter Einbeziehung unterschiedlicher Museumstypen und -kontexte in verschiedenen deutschen Regionen bis in die okkupierten Gebiete hinein. Gefragt wird nach Veränderungen in der Personal-, Sammlungs-, Ausstellungs- und Vermittlungspolitik, aber auch nach der Organisation und internationalen Rezeption des deutschen Museumswesens in der NS-Zeit. Bewusst facettenreich entsteht so ein neues, vielschichtiges Bild von der Rolle der Museen im Nationalsozialismus zwischen Anpassung und Widerstand, ideologischer Instrumentalisierung und der Suche nach Freiräumen.
