GOETHE UND DIE KUNST (Goethe and Art). Ed. by Sabine Schulze. Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt am Main, 1994. Published in association with Verlag Gerd Hatje, Stuttgart. 644 pp. with 606 ills. (389 col.). 29 x 25 cm. ISBN 3775705015 In German.
An extensive investigation of the interconnections between Goethe's wide-ranging interests and the artistic and intellectual currents of his time, this massive catalogue documents an exhibition of nearly 400 works from international collections, including some 40 landscape drawings and figure studies by Goethe (1749-1832), portraits of the renowned writer by Kauffmann, David d'Angers and Schadow, prints and drawings from Goethe's private collection, images by Tischbein and Turner inspired by his writings, and diverse paintings and drawings by Hackert, Houel, Koch, Fuseli, Carstens, Friedrich and many other artists of his time. Fine reproductions and often substantial discussions of the exhibited works are accompanied by 16 scholarly essays examining such topics as Goethe's responses to ancient art, his links to developments in Neo-Classical and Romantic painting, his support of Weimar art competitions from 1799 to 1805, and the significance of artistic renderings of nature to his scientific studies.
