        Junger Löwe, nach Schmetterlingen haschend. Originale japanische Tuschezeichnung.

      1900 - Bildgröße 39,5 x 27,2 cm ca. 1900. Blattgröße 51,5 x 35,5 cm. Loses Blatt. (Zeichnung leicht wellig und knitterig, Trägerpapier minimal braunfleckig, im Ganzen sehr gut erhalten). Die mit Feder und Pinsel ausgeführte Tuschezeichnung zeigt einen jungen Löwen, der sich nach zwei über ihm flatternden Schmetterlingen reckt. Die künstlerisch bedeutende Arbeit ist auf sehr dünnem Seidenpapier ausgeführt, das in einem dünnen Rand auf allen vier Seiten auf Büttenpapier montiert ist. Da das Seidenpapier sehr dünn ist, liegt es nicht glatt auf dem Träger, sondern ist leicht wellig und knitterig. Das Trägerpapier zeigt am linken Rand Spuren einer früheren Heftung. Bei der Aufschrift auf dem Bild handelt es sich um eine Transkription der Signatur "Pinsel des Toyo Sen" (wörtlich übersetzt bedeuten die beiden letzten Zeichen: Eremit des Überflusses). Als Künstlername sind diese beiden Zeichen aber wahrscheinlich zusammen sino-japanisch als "Ho sen" zu lesen. Das Siegel auf dem Bild liest sich ebenfals "Hosen" (mit Querstrich auf dem o). Zu diesem Künstler oder dieser Künstlerin konnten wir nichts eruieren. - Wir danken Dr. Alexander Hofmann vom Museum für asiatische Kunst Berlin für seine Auskunft. Original chinese drawing. - Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage oder auf unserer Homepage. 1000 Gramm. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Limited edition of 200 copies, this no. 66, specially bound in full leather by Bickers & Son, London. Sir Thomas Lawrence (1769-1830) remains one of the most renowned portrait painters of the Regency period. A child prodigy, at the age of 10 he was supporting his family with his portraits. He received his first royal commission, a portrait of Queen Charlotte, in 1790 (at the age of 21) and remained the most sought-after portrait painter in Britain for the next forty years. In a recent (2010) retrospective exhibit of Lawrence's work, it was said of him that "he [was] one of the great painters of the last 250 years and one of the great stars of portraiture on a European stage". This superb volume presents 65 of Lawrence's portraits done in Aquatint photogravure, with two of them hand-coloured, with a life of the artist and a catalogue of his work. ***DESCRIPTION: Custom bound by Bickers & Son, London in full green morocco, both the front and back boards have a decorative ruled border in gilt, raised bands on the spine, gilt lettering and decorations on the spine, top edge gilt, sewn headbands in cranberry, blue and ivory, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers in shades of olive green, grey and ivory, limitation statement on the verso of the half-title page, this copy no.

Due to the book's weight the front joint is just beginning to crack, but the thickness of the boards means it is on the outer surface only and the board is firmly attached, as is the rear board; there is one scrape to the leather on the front board and extremely minor overall edgewear; the spine has sunned to a brownish-green. Internally there is some offset darkening to the free endpapers from the gilt inner dentelles and the book has a very faint musty odor. ***POSTAGE: Please note that due to the size and weight of this work additional postage may apply; we are happy to ship at cost to both domestic and international addresses, please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Othmar Brioschi: Das Kloster Santa Scolastica bei Subiaco (Originalzeichnung)

      1900 - Bleistift, Farbstifte, Aquarell und Gouache auf Papier. 51 x 35 cm. Rechts unten signiert und bezeichnet: „Oth. Brioschi. Rom“. Biografie: Othmar Brioschi (1854 Wien - 1912 Rom). Als Sohn eines italienisch-österreichischen Theatermalers absolviert Othmar Brioschi eine der Familientradition entsprechende Ausbildung in München. Dort besucht er zugleich die Akademie, um sich in der Figuren- und Landschaftsmalerei fortzubilden. Zurück in Wien arbeitet Brioschi zunächst bei seinem Vater und tritt als Student der Akademie in die Meisterklasse für Landschaftsmalerei ein. 1882 ermöglicht ihm die Verleihung des großen Staatspreises einen zweijährigen Aufenthalt in Rom, wo er ab 1885 ständig wohnt. Unter den deutschsprachigen Künstlerkollegen genießt Brioschi hohes Ansehen und erhält 1905 eine Professur an der Accademia di San Luca. Die Stimmung der römischen Landschaft ist das zentrale Thema von Brioschis Kunst. Für seine minutiös ausgeführten Zeichnungen verwendet er bevorzugt getönte Papiere, seidig schimmernde Graphit- und Farbstifte sowie helle Aquarell- und Gouachefarben. In seinen vom Spätimpressionismus beeinflussten Ölgemälden setzt er die Farbe in pastosen Flecken nebeneinander und steigert so deren Leuchtkraft, wodurch das Licht zum primären Ausdrucksträger des Bildes wird. Obgleich sich Brioschi an topographische Vorgaben hält, erscheinen seine meist menschenleeren Darstellungen aufgrund gestreckter Formate, eigenwilliger Perspektiven und unkonventioneller Bildausschnitte nur mittelbar der Realität verpflichtet. Fast muten sie wie symbolistische Traumlandschaften an, die den Betrachter zu meditativer Versenkung einladen. Den Höhepunkt in Brioschis Schaffen bildet ein 1898 im Auftrag von Erzherzog Franz Ferdinand entstandener Zyklus mit 17 Ansichten aus dem Park der Villa d’Este in Tivoli. Elegisch und mystisch zugleich wirken seine Zeichnungen mit Motiven aus den weltberühmten Gartenanlagen, die schon in früheren Jahrhunderten Künstler aus ganz Europa inspiriert haben. Das in der vatikanischen Druckerei als bibliophiles Mappenwerk vervielfältigte Kompendium begründet Brioschis Ruf als einer der hervorragendsten österreichischen Landschaftsmaler in Italien um 1900.

Luxus-Papier-Fabrik Adolf Sala, ohne Jahr (ca. 1900)]. - Ca. 28 cm (Durchmesser des Trommeldeckels), 27,5 cm (Durchmesser der Trommel), ca. 11,5 cm (Trommelhöhe); ca. 5,3 x 86 cm (Motivstreifen). Deckel der Bildertrommel mit farblithographierter Illustration und Titel "Lebensrad", links davon Nr. 4194, rechts Herstellermarke. Deckelinnenseite mit Aufkleber des Herstellers und Verkaufsaufkleber einer Hamburger Spielwarenhandlung. Das Zoetrop, auch Wundertrommel oder Zootrop genannt ist ein einfaches optisches Gerät, das auf mechanischem Wege bewegte Bilder erzeugt. Es ist damit ein Vorläufer der Kinematographie, die 1834 von dem Engländer William George Horner (1768-1837) erfunden wurde. Das Zoetrop besteht aus einer dunklen, oben offenen drehbaren Trommel, an deren Rand sich in regelmäßigen Abständen enge Schlitze befinden. An der Innenwand der Trommel liegt ein Papierstreifen mit gezeichneten Bewegungsphasen. Die Trommel wird in Drehung versetzt und der Betrachter blickt durch die vorbeiziehenden Schlitze auf den Papierstreifen, die Figuren auf den Motivstreifen scheinen sich zu bewegen.

        Dichter (1875-1926): Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Schmargendorf bei Berlin, 13. III. 1900. - 8°. 1 ½ S. a. Doppelblatt. - RILKE weist die irrtümliche Widmung von "Mir zur Feier" zurück. - Sehr früher und interessanter Brief an die Redaktion des "Montagsblatt aus Böhmen" anlässlich einer am Vortag erschienenen Besprechung seines berühmtesten Jugendwerkes "Mir zur Feier. Gedichte" (1899) mit Buchschmuck von Heinrich Vogeler. Rilke geht auf die lobende Kritik nicht ein, sondern bittet um die Korrektur der falschen Angabe, er habe seine erste nennenswerte Gedichtsammlung dem Illustrator und weiteren Förderern gewidmet: "[ ] in der Beschreibung meines Buches ‚Mir zur Feier` ist ein sachlicher Irrtum zu verzeichnen. [mit Stern eingefügte Anmerkung unten:] Nr. 11 vom 12. März 1900. Sie würden mir einen Dank erweisen, wenn Sie ihn in der nächsten Nummer richtigstellen wollten, umsomehr, als er nicht direkt mich [im Original unterstrichen] trifft. Das Buch ist nicht [im Original unterstrichen] dem Maler Heinrich Vogeler-Worpswede und dem Herrn Prof. Dr. August Sauer und der ‚Gesellschaft zu Förderung deutscher Wissenschaft, Kunst und Literatur` - ‚zugeeignet.` Diese Namen sind nur darin notiert, mit der Bemerkung, durch wessen Freundschaft, Vermittlung und Theilnahme das Buch schöner und reicher werden durfte in seiner Erscheinung. Zu einer Widmung fehlte mir bei den Persönlichkeiten, sowie dem Institut gegenüber das Recht, da ja der Inhalt des Buches zu keinem von den dreien in irgendeiner persönlichen Beziehung steht. / Mit Dank / hochachtend: / Rainer Maria Rilke" - // - DiABEI: Kopie der Besprechung in der deutschsprachigen Prager Zeitung "Montagsblatt aus Böhmen", - Rilkes "neues Versbuch", das erstmals unter dem auf Veranlassung von Lou Andreas-Salomé (Schriftstellerin, Psychoanalytikerin, 1861-1937) eingedeutschten Namen Rainer (statt René) erschien, wird darin außerordentlich gelobt: "Es hat ein festliches Gewand, entzückende Arabesken und reizvolle Miniaturen des Vorpsweder (sic!) Künstlers Heinrich Vogeler umrahmen die Lieder, es ist stattlicher als die früheren Gedichtbände unseres Landsmannes, es ist persönlicher und künstlerisch entschieden reifer". - Der Autor bedauert die fehlende Resonanz und begründet seine Bewunderung für Rilkes Kunst: "er ist eine geheimnisvolle, aus einer überreichen Phantasie und verblüffenden Beweglichkeit der Sprache quellende Kraft, welche in seinen Versen zittert." - Dies alles vermag die Verärgerung Rilkes über die versehentlich unterstellte Widmung nicht zu bremsen. Den Maler, Designer, Illustrator und bald engen Freund Heinrich Vogeler (1872-1942), hatte Rilke 1898 in Florenz kennen gelernt. Im September 1900 wurde Rilke eingeladen auf den Barkenhoff, dem Domizil Heinrich Vogelers in Worpswede, da sich Lou, mit der er seit 1897 befreundet war, vorerst von ihm getrennt hatte. Dort lernte Rilke die Bildhauerin Clara Westhoff kennen und heiratete sie im folgenden Frühjahr. Der österr. Literaturhistoriker und Hochschullehrer August Sauer (1855-1926) gehörte zu den Intellektuellen in Rilkes Geburtsstadt Prag. Er begründete die Zeitschrift Euphorion. Die "Gesellschaft zur Förderung deutscher Wissenschaft, Kunst und Literatur in Böhmen", wurde 1890 in Prag gegründet und unterstützte in den tschechischen Länden lebende deutsche Forscher, Künstler und Schriftsteller mit Finanzierung von Druckkosten. - // - Wenn Rilke das Buch jedoch überhaupt jemandem gewidmet hätte, dann nur Lou Andreas-Salomé. Ursprünglich wollte er für die Freundin eine Gedichtsammlung mit dem Titel "Dir zur Feier" veröffentlichen. - Dass Rilke zur Zeit unseres Briefes noch ganz im Banne Lous war, zeigt schon der Absender. Er war der 14 Jahre älteren Geliebten nach Berlin Schmargendorf gefolgt und bewohnte 1898 bis 1900 eine Wohnung in der Villa Waldfrieden in Lous unmittelbaren Nachbarschaft. Dort entstand nicht nur unser Brief, sondern berühmte Werke wie der Cornet. Endgültig beendete Lou die Liebesbeziehung mit dem Abschiedsbrief vom 26. Februar 1901. Die leidenschaftliche Beziehung ging über in eine enge Freundschaft, [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Photo Album]: Nainital India Summer Resort 1890s

      India 1900 - Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 11". Brown leather with gilt detail. A collection of 23 sepia toned photographs measuring between 4.5" x 6" and 6" x 8", some with captions, as well as one postcard. Photographs are very good or better with some waviness and faint spotting in a very good minus album with worn corners, a page detached but present, and lacking the spine. A photo album depicting the summer retreat of Nainital, India, located in the lake district of Uttarakhand near the mountain of Nanda Devi Massif, during the 1890s. The album shows the trip up to the region with large photos of the Indian landscape showing the lakes and mountains of Nainital. There are photos of British tourists at the resort, complete with handwritten captions identifying each person in the group photo, as well as native Indians and the Nainital bazaar. These photos were taken after the town was rebuilt in the 1880s after falling victim to a "landslip." Not only is the region known for its natural beauty and as a way to beat the brutal Indian summer, it is also renowned for its prestigious educational institutions, one of which is shown here captioned as "Girl's School in Nainital." A modest but interesting collection of a British summer holiday in the mountains of India with relatively large images.
