PEGASUS UND DIE KUNSTE (Pegasus and the Arts). Ed. by Claudia Brink and Wilhelm Hornbostel. Museum fur Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg, 1993. Published by Deutscher Kunstverlag GmbH, Munich. 340 pp. with 490 ills. (91 col.). 31 x 24 cm. LC 94-104642 ISBN 3422061096 In German.
A detailed study of the mythological flying horse Pegasus as a symbol of poetic inspiration, martial power and immortality in art from Antiquity to the 20th century, this scholarly catalogue documents an array of some 225 diverse objects that includes Greek vases, Renaissance and Baroque drawings and paintings, astronomical charts, stage designs, and lithographs by late 19th-century artists. Reproductions and discussions of the featured works are prefaced by ten well-illustrated essays examining such subjects as the ancient origins of the Pegasus figure and its links to the Muses, its significance in Italian and Netherlandish art of the 16th and 17th centuries, and the use of images of Pegasus by architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel and Symbolist artists Gustave Moreau and Odilon Redon.
