Miklós Németh – Second public – a selection of early works

After some time I am able to present a little photobook from early works of Miklós Németh. In my opinion it is still a lot to learn about this artist and especially his circumstances he had to work.

Hans Knoll (an austro-hungarain gallerist) edited a book about the different political circumstances in Hungary and its impact for the art world at that times (“Die zweite Öffentlichkeit” Kunst in Ungarn im 20.Jahrhundert – hungarian edition: a második nyilvánosság” http://budapest.knollgalerie.at/570.html) As well Miklós Németh had to fight in those times – and not having an official diploma made his life not easier in the 60íes after the socialist regime came to power and streamlined hungarian art.

The more interesting is the fact how independent Németh developed his own style reflecting the joy of live with his enormous colorful paintings where nature, love and the beauty of live are in the centre of his artistic focus which he captured like in a time capsule.

A little step towards to work out of this part of art history and the role of Miklós Németh might be to get to know more about the artworks of Németh during this time starting with the Marffy school in 1950 and continuing with the collaboration with Ilosvai Istvan Varga and Toth Menyhért.

Miklós Németh – diaries of life

Hi,

again a post about the great hungarian painter Miklós Németh who really catches me even if I am not looking at his paintings.  I am actually exploring some of his diaries which are partly colorfully designed and which describe e.g. his daily work at painting and other thoughts.

Just examples which I am proud of to be able to show: a fantastic self portrait by the 22 year old Miklos Németh and a sample page of one of his diaries.

I want the spectators of his art to focus on the real and right works because they are so fascinating and show his development  as a painter. As long it is not yet really open to add works in the work directory (which partly is done by the austrian private trust Lengersdorff) I will continue to document  and publish my own, which should be – I hope – a great addition to the public once in future.

Anyone who might want to help on this endeavor is greatly invited to join. I am keen to discuss ways how to help to give Miklós Németh the place in the art world he deserves for.

Kunst-Kauderwelsch…

Schon öfters dachte ich, dass meine geistige Fähigkeiten sehr beschränkt wären, vor allem wenn ich Kunstkataloge lese. Oft verstehe ich nicht, was der Kurator bzw. der Kunsthistoriker sagen möchte.

Dieses “Problem” beichtete ich meinem Bekannten Rudolf Schramm in Wien, um auch zu testen, ob ich der einzige bin, dem dies wiederfährt. 

Witzigerweise -und das wusste ich vorher nicht- sagte er mir, dass er sich auch schon mit dieser Thematik auseinandergesetzt und dies auf seiner Webseite http://www.kunst-kauderwelsch.at dokumentiert hätte.

Dies wollte ich meinern followern nicht vorenthalten.

Also viel Spass zum Lesen auf http://www.kunst-kauderwelsch.at

Leipzig – Helden von 1989/1990

Hallo liebe Freunde,

ich widme meinen neuen Artikel der Fotokunst sowie der deutschen Geschichte.

Die Fotos, die ich hier zeige, sind bisher unveröffentlichte Aufnahmen, die von Bernhard Richter (all rights reserved) in Leipzig gemacht worden sind. Mich begeistern und bewegen sie heute immer noch. Man benötigt nicht viele Worte, um zu verstehen, welcher Geist und Mut damals herrschte und was von den Menschen geleistet worden ist. Für mich sind es echte Helden!

Für Interessenten, die diese Zeit nacherleben wollen kann ich  das “Leipziger DEMONTAGEBUCH” (erschienen im Gustav Kiepenheuer Verlag Leipzig und Weimar) empfehlen, welches in einer detaillierten Art und Weise diese Zeit nachvollziehen läßt.

ARTURES-Yüksel Arslan.

The combination of paintings and texts or messages is something, which can be seen in the art world frequently: René Magritte, Joseph Beuys, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mario Dalpra or Franz West use that technique to express their “inner world” and transport messages to the observer of their work.

I follow up that topic (“autographs are art”) in my blog with the topic of ARTURES which were invented by the turkish artist YÜKSEL ARSLAN.  ARTURES is an expression which combines “ART” and “peintURES” ore “litterartURES”.

In 1964, Arslan’s “artures” were included in the exhibition entitled “The Origins, History and Relationships of Surrealism” organized by the Galerie Charpentier, and viewed today as one of the most important exhibitions of the history of Surrealism.

Yüksel Arslan lives since 1962 in Paris and had long lasting contacts to the known surrealists at that time – In 1964, Arslan’s “artures” were included in the exhibition entitled “The Origins, History and Relationships of Surrealism” organized by the Galerie Charpentier, and viewed today as one of the most important exhibitions of the history of Surrealism ( see  as well http://www.galerinev.com/en/sanatcilar/detay/33/yuksel-arslan )

He became internationally known during the last years. After his exhibition at SENTRALISTANBUL in 2009, his works were shown in Vienna, Zurich and Düsseldorf. (see https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yüksel_Arslan)

I am happy to show very early testimonials of Yüksel Arslan from the 1965  at the point he still lives in Berlin and  moves to Paris  and prepares the exhibition at the gallery Sydow in Frankfurt.

Franz West – Kant & Kantine

Dear community,

a superbe written quote by Franz West thinking about Kant & Kantine: Kantine the feministic form of  Kant. 

Franz West Kant

The reverse text mentions “Let´s have a look for Hegel´s <schlechte Unendlichkeit>”

Franz West Kant

copyright: Franz West, private collection.

The topic of “schlechte Unendlichkeit” which the philosopher Hegel was defining (http://www.hegel-system.de/de/v11123froeb.htm) and Franz West is thinking of from a more artistic point of view, have impact to our  daily existence and life. I want to refer to one of my former blog with the topic of communication  https://autographen.wordpress.com/2015/01/22/franz-west-the-art-of-words/ and another interesting blog to that topic I found ( unfortunately in german language only): “the true organisation” http://agilosoph.de/organisation/schlechte-unendlichkeit-wahre-organisation/

Robert Haas – new realism in the 60ies & 70ies

Robert Haas (1898-1977) was born in Heilbronn and studied at the Academy of Arts in Munich beginning from 1918 (after being war painter from 1914-1918). In 1936 he became part of the Kieler Artist federation. 1955 he started to be an independent artist and lived in Chelles s/Marne near Paris from 1959 on.

He was a good friend of our family and that was the reason we were often together with him and his wife during his stays in Heilbronn, when he came back from Paris. Of course we were as well impressed by his pictures and work he presented or he gave to us.

His work is maintained at the Städtische Museen in Heilbronn and from time to time presented to the public. The last one was in 2012 (http://www.museen-heilbronn.de/kunsthalle/presse/mitteilungen/_files/Pressemitteilung%20realismus.pdf) where the time between 1960 and 1970 was put into focus, especially for the art of the realism or new realism paintings which came up to be “modern” again.

Typical for Robert Haas´s paintings were surrealistic scenes as well scenes from french towns like Paris and others.

I show here his last self-portrait he gave to my father shortly before his death (unpublished) and typical examples of town paintings (which sometimes remember to the Paris´painters like Utrillo, Vuillard, Bonnard, Dufy).
