  • NEW Inro : Japanese Belt Ornaments: The Trumpf Collection

    The richly illustrated publication presents about 250 Inro from the Anna and Christian Trumpf collection. These small, multipartite receptacles for seals and medicine, which were attached to a belt with the aid of a toggle (Netsuke), came into use in the sixteenth century and remained a prominent accessory in Japanese menswear until the late nineteenth century. The symbolic, often narrative decoration conveys a valuable insight into Japanese culture. Today the carefully and lovingly worked, mostly lacquered Inro enjoy enormous popularity in collectors' circles. Following the inventory of the Trumpfs' significant Netsuke collection published in 2000, another comprehensively annotated standard work on Japanese belt decoration has now arrived.

  • NEW Der Wald ALS Romantischer Topos : 5. Interdisziplinaeres Symposion Der Hoch

    Die deutsche Dichtung, die Malerei und die Musik der Romantik nehmen den Wald mit einer Vehemenz und Breite in Besitz wie nie zuvor. War er bereits in Mythos und Marchen ein Durchgangstor zum Raum vor aller Zeit (Paradies oder Totenreich), auch ein Ort der Erleuchtung oder Verirrung, so wird er nun zu einer Metapher des Seins. Naturpoetisch und/oder religios aufgeladen, dient er einem kunstlerischen Initiationskonzept. Das poetische Programm suggeriert Erlosung, doch wozu und wohin? Wird es das schlafende Lied in den Dingen, in der unberuhrten (idyllischen oder damonisch-magischen) Waldes- und Seelenlandschaft zum Klingen bringen?

    Paintings made of glass, animated by light and thus ever-changing in their colour: Hans Gottfried von Stockhausen's life-work is unique in the 20th century. In his time teaching at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Kunste in Stuttgart (1970 -1985) Stockhausen placed his panels as autonomous pieces of art at the heart of his oeuvre; they soon gained international recognition as "Stuttgart Glass." For the artist, they stood in growing rapport with his graphic work over fifty years, and represented a counterweight to his architecture-bound glass creations. As distinctive and invaluable contributions to modern glass-art, the works of Stockhausen have meanwhile made their way into large museums and private collections throughout the world.

  • NEW Gemstone / Art : Renaissance to the Present Day

    Gemstones have always been, since time immemorial, heavily charged with meaning and have even been regarded as magical objects. For that reason they have also been an art medium since the early modern age and have shaped as art symbols - in the form of the crystal - both Romanticism and Modernism, for example in the works of Caspar David Friedrich, Lyonel Feininger and many more. In the latter half of the twentieth century, not only have such artists as Bernd Munsteiner, Ute Eitzenhofer and Bernhard Schobinger rediscovered the gemstone; through the Hochschule fur Edelstein und Schmuck Trier/Idar-Oberstein and other similar specialist institutions it is also undergoing a revival in today's art production - right up to Damien Hirst.
