Marc Adrian (19302008) was one of the outstanding artists from a protesting, international neo-avant-garde after the
Second World War. Extremely versatile, he invented new pictorial worlds and worked as a sculptor, painter, graphic artist,
filmmaker, photographer, and author both in Austria and abroad. Through his explorations of motion and perception, he contributed
to the international art movements ZERO, Nouvelles Tendances, and arte programmata, leading to his participation, as the only
Austrian artist, in The Responsive Eye, the major Op Art exhibition shown in 1965 at MoMA in New York. Adrian realized his Kinetic worldview using an intermedia
approach in new art forms, genres and technologies, and started off by working with Kurt Kren in experimental film. In his
linguistic and media criticism he was one of the first artists to use the computer as a random generator and was involved
in the legendary exhibition Cybernetic Serendipity held in 1968 in London. Based on his written estate, this publication analyses his evolution as an artist and sheds light
on his significance in the context of international developments. As part of the Belvedere catalogues raisonnés series, this
documentation includes 894 intermedia works in all genres, a significant number published here for the first time.
Author: Agnes Husslein-Arco, Matthias Boeckl, Kerstin Jesse | ISBN: 978-3-900000-21-9 (German), 978-3-900000-54-7 (English)
Herbert Boeckl (18941966) was one of the key figures in Austrian modern art. As a painter, professor and later Rector
of the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, this self-taught artist had a lasting impact on the Austrian art scene. Building on
the achievements of Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka and the Neukunstgruppe [New Art Group], Boeckl emerged as one of the main
exponents of expressive modern painting in Austria. This catalogue raisonné of Boeckls paintings, sculptures, frescoes,
and tapestries is based on the oeuvre catalogue of paintings by Leonore Boeckl (1975, 370 entries), in-depth research, and
new archival records. Revised according to the latest academic standards, it documents 411 works.
Anton Romako: Pionier und Außenseiter der Malerei des 19. Jahrhunderts
Monografie mit Werkverzeichnis
Author: Cornelia Reiter | ISBN: 978-3-900000-83-7 (German)
Anton Romako (18321889) was without doubt one of the most fascinating artists in nineteenth-century Austrian art history.
His colourful and contradictory personality comes across in his pioneering work that anticipates early twentieth-century art,
especially Austrian Expressionism. In this monograph with a catalogue raisonné, Romako emerges as an artist with international
contacts who was extremely well informed. Featuring 880 works, Cornelia Reiter presents the first detailed documentation of
his paintings that offer an insight into the artists times and reveal complex depths.
Josef Danhauser. Biedermeierzeit im Bild
Author: Sabine Grabner | ISBN: 978-3-205-78718-1 (German)
Josef Danhauser is one of the most important painters from the Biedermeier period. His images humorously capture humanitys
minor and major weaknesses. They are usually based on a quote from the Bible or a work of world literature and Danhauser transports
its content into his own times. In addition, his works are a document of contemporary lifestyles and interior design, as the
painter liked to include the latest creations from the Danhauser furniture factory. The analysis of Josef Danhausers
development as a painter and description of his life is complemented by a catalogue raisonné of all his known paintings and
drawings with over 554 entries and illustrations (where available).
Carry Hauser: Monograph and Catalogue Raisonné
Author: Cornelia Cabuk | ISBN: 978-3-99028-055-3 (German), 978-3-99028-106-2 (English)
The painter, graphic artist, set designer, and poet Carry Hauser (18951985) was a pioneer of Austrian modern art. This
catalogue raisonné comprises both a detailed biography and 1,420 works, some which have only recently been discovered. Carry
Hausers artistic career covered almost the entire twentieth century. In these crisis-ridden times of two world wars,
exile and emigration he made a unique and valuable contribution to Austrian art. This systematic documentation of Hausers
life and work, reevaluates his fundamental significance to the breakthrough of modernism in Austria.
Hans Makart. Werkverzeichnis der Gemälde
Author: Gerbert Frodl | ISBN: 978-3-99028-194-9 (German)
The new catalogue raisonné of Hans Makarts paintings (18401884) by Gerbert Frodl pays tribute to one of the greatest
Austrian artists in the late nineteenth century. Famous for his opulent, sensual style of painting, often described as a riot
of colour, over the years Makart has received varied reviews from public and art historians alike, although in his day he
was one of the most popular artists. Nowadays his art-historical significance is uncontested and his work is seen to represent
the crossroads between nineteenth-century art and emerging modernism. This catalogue documents 657 works and includes some
new research about the artist.
Franz Xaver Messerschmidt: Monograph and Catalogue Raisonné
Author: Maria Pötzl-Malikova | ISBN: 978-3-902805-73-7 (German/English)
There can be no doubt that Franz Xaver Messerschmidt (17361783) was one of the most extraordinary artist personalities
of the eighteenth century. His work ranged from stately court art to his so-called Character Heads. These testify to the high
standards the artist set himself. Messerschmidts life and work have been interpreted in many different ways and have
provided plenty of scope for speculation about his mental health. In this oeuvre catalogue of 128 works, Maria Pötzl-Malikova
dispels many myths and vividly captures the life of this brilliant sculptor for the reader.
The catalogues raisonnés are available at our museum shops and online bookshop.
