Das Kunstmuseum, eine der erfolgreichsten Erfindungen der europäischen Kulturgeschichte, durchlief eine dramatische Entwicklung. An seinem Beginn stand die Auflösung der Wunderkammer fürstlicher Provenienz. Erst in der Zeit der Französischen Revolution, als Vandalismus die Kunst bedrohte und Napoleons Kunstraub Gemälde und Statuen aus ganz Europa nach Paris brachte, fand es im Louvre zu einer vorläufigen Form. Am Beispiel der Museumsinsel in Berlin zeigt Ritter schließlich die kontroverse Geschichte des Museumsgedankens selbst. So sollte ausgerechnet die Integration von Gegenwartskunst – in diesem Fall jener des späten 19. Jahrhunderts – dem Museum als Hort und Symbol der Vergangenheitsbewahrung neues Leben einhauchen.

The Red and the Black covers the major stages in the history of Greek pottery production, both figured and plain, as they are understood today. It provides an up-to-date evaluation of ways of studying Greek pottery and encourages new approaches. There is a detailed analysis of the subject matter of figured scenes covering some of the main preoccupations of ancient Greece: myth, fantasy and everyday life. Furthermore, it sets the artefacts in the context of the societies that produced them, highlighting the social, art historical, mythological and economic information that can be revealed from their study. This volume also covers a hitherto neglected area: the history of the collecting of Greek pottery through the Renaissance and up to the present day. It shows how market values have gradually increased to the high prices of today and goes on to take a closer look at the enthusiasm of the collectors.

Der Titel BILD/GESCHICHTE lässt eine Vielzahl von Verbindungen assoziieren – von der Geschichtlichkeit der Bilder bis zur Rolle der Bilder als ‚Akteure’ in der Geschichte. Die beiden Begriffe bezeichnen die Pole, um die Horst Bredekamps Forschungen kreisen. Ihm zu Ehren entstand dieser Band, der vor allem wissenschaftliche, aber auch künstlerische Beiträge versammelt. Ausgehend von der These, dass eine kritische Wissenschaft des Bildes notwendig Bildgeschichte ist und eine Entkoppelung von Bild und Geschichte prinzipiell ein kritisches Verständnis von Bildern verhindert, gliedert sich der Band in sechs Sektionen: Disziplinäre Perspektiven, Vernetztes Wissen, Bild und Erkenntnis, Transformationen, Bild-Politik und Selbstbilder in Kunst und Wissenschaft. Er enthält interdisziplinäre Beiträge u.a. von Hans Belting, Gottfried Boehm, Friedrich Kittler, Dieter Grimm und Barbara M. Stafford, die wie auch Horst Bredekamp zu den wichtigsten, international renommierten Vertretern ihres Faches gehören.

Jefferson's Demons

Portrait of a Restless Mind

"I have often wondered for what good end the sensations of Grief could be intended." -- Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson suffered during his life from periodic bouts of dejection and despair, shadowed intervals during which he was full of "gloomy forebodings" about what lay ahead. Not long before he composed the Declaration of Independence, the young Jefferson lay for six weeks in idleness and ill health at Monticello, paralyzed by a mysterious "malady." Similar lapses were to recur during anxious periods in his life, often accompanied by violent headaches. In Jefferson's Demons, Michael Knox Beran illuminates an optimistic man's darker side -- Jefferson as we have rarely seen him before. The worst of these moments came after his wife died in 1782. But two years later, after being dispatched to Europe, Jefferson recovered nerve and spirit in the salons of Paris, where he fell in love with a beautiful young artist, Maria Cosway. When their affair ended, Jefferson's health again broke down. He set out for the palms and temples of southern Europe, and though he did not know where the therapeutic journey would take him or where it would end, his encounter with the old civilizations of the Mediterranean was transformative. The Greeks and Romans taught him that a man could make productive use of his demons. Jefferson's immersion in the mystic truths of the Old World gave him insights into mysteries of life and art that Enlightenment philosophy had failed to supply. Beran skillfully shows how Jefferson drew on the esoteric lore he encountered to transform anxiety into action. On his return to America, Jefferson entered the most productive period of his life: He created a new political party, was elected president, and doubled the size of the country. His private labors were no less momentous...among them, the artistry of Monticello and the University of Virginia. Jefferson's Demons is an elegantly composed account of the strangeness and originality of one Founder's genius. Michael Knox Beran uncovers the maps Jefferson used to find his way out of dejection and to forge a new democratic culture for America. Here is a Jefferson who, with all his failings, remains one of his country's greatest teachers and prophets.

Il possesso della bellezza. Dialogo sui collezionisti d’arte

Raccogliere, accumulare oggetti è un’impresa dell’uomo fin dalla preistoria; ma negli ultimi secoli, e ancor più oggi, la smania di possedere la bellezza, gli oggetti d’arte, ha contagiato ogni strato sociale. Le autrici, guidate da due diverse discipline, la psicoanalisi e la storia dell’arte, hanno seguito questo smisurato diffondersi del collezionismo. Gli itinerari paralleli del libro sono: da una parte una raccolta di osservazioni su personaggi, tendenze e ambienti del collezionismo dal Settecento al Novecento; sull’evolversi del gusto, le relative scelte di mercato, di connoisseurship, di allestimenti privati. Dall’altra una ricerca sulle passioni e le strategie del collezionista; su uno dei metodi che le mente trova per affrontare la diversità degli altri e l’imprevedibilità del destino.
