OSKAR KOKOSCHKA. Ed. by Klaus Albrecht Schroder and Johann Winkler. Kunstforum Landerbank, Vienna, 1991. Published by Prestel-Verlag, Munich. 230 pp. with 190 ills. (104 col.). 31 x 25 cm. ISBN 3791311328 In English.
A notable survey of the distinctive oeuvre of Austrian artist Kokoschka (1886-1980), this catalogue features striking full-page reproductions of 95 portraits, city views, landscapes, still lifes and allegories which reflect the painter's career-long allegiance to a personal mode of Expressionism distinguished by its coloristic subtlety and psychological intensity. Stylistic and thematic commentaries on the featured paintings complement five critical essays appraising Kokoschka's formative years in Vienna and Dresden, the significance of his complex cityscapes, the political themes in his paintings of the 1930s and 40s, and the integration of aesthetic and humanistic values central to his late work.
