Wilhelm Schadow. Werkverzeichnis der Gemälde mit einer Auswahl der dazugehörigen Zeichnungen und Druckgraphiken

Wilhelm Schadow. Werkverzeichnis der Gemälde mit einer Auswahl der dazugehörigen Zeichnungen und Druckgraphiken

by Cordula Grewe (author), Bettina Baumgärtel, Hans Paffrath (editor)

The Catalogue raisonné presented by Cordula Grewe, the internationally acknowledged Schadow-expert, offers much more than a comprehensive overview. It satisfies the scientific demands and at the same time appeals to the general public, because Grewe's analyzes are knowledgeable, profound, and at the same time they are as read as a criminal story.

This standard work, which finally takes account of the founder of the Dusseldorf painting school, was scientifically supervised by the Museum Kunstpalast Düsseldorf in cooperation with the Galerie Paffrath.

Lexikon der Düsseldorfer Malerschule (3 volumes)

Lexikon der Düsseldorfer Malerschule (3 volumes)

by Dr. Bettina Baumgärtel (author) et al., Hans Paffrath (editor) et al.

For the first time in the history of art, a comprehensive lexicon about the Düsseldorf painting school has been created. Between 1819 and 1918 Düsseldorf had developed into an art center of international standing in the 19th century. The Royal Prussian Academy of Fine Arts - led by directors with such famous names as Peter Cornelius and Wilhelm Schadow - was also an attraction for numerous foreign artists from 17 nations, among whom the Americans and Scandinavians formed the main share. The Düsseldorf school of painting is essentially marked by the impulses which the individual teachers presented with their stylistic themes and themes in the bourgeois art of the 19th century. Johann Wilhelm Preyer, Johann Wilhelm Schirmer, Andreas Achenbach, Johann Peter Hasenclever and Ludwig Knaus served almost all styles and pictorial themes - historiography, landscape, genre and still life.

For the three-volume lexicon, about 1000 artists were selected from 4000 artists' names, whose way of life is described according to the latest research. Further 1000 are mentioned in an appendix with their most important data.

This book deals with the life of the artists and their work, describes the themes of the paintings. Between 1819-1918, the Düsseldorf Academy of Fine Arts was the center of the Rhenish art scene.
