MAX KLINGER, 1857-1920. Stadtische Galerie im Stadelschen Kunstinstitut, Frankfurt am Main, 1992. Organized by Museum der bildenden Kunste, Leipzig. Published in association with Edition Leipzig. 386 pp. with 283 ills. (85 col.). 28 x 23 cm. LC 92-164134 ISBN 3361003873 In German.
Providing a major survey of the distinctive oeuvre of Leipzig artist Klinger, an important figure in turn-of-the-century German art whose works combine elements of Symbolism and Jugendstil, this catalogue documents an exhibition of 291 prints, drawings, paintings and sculptures encompassing depictions of mythological and religious subjects, landscapes and portraits, and enigmatic psychological allegories. Individual commentaries on the works and concise texts describing specific motifs supplement eight critical essays discussing such topics as the subjective character of Klinger's imagery, his self-portraits, the depiction of women in his work, and his strong interest in musical themes, especially as reflected in his well-known monumental sculpture of Beethoven and his visual interpretations of compositions by Brahms.
