        Ohne Titel (1948). Abstrakter Expressionismus. Öl auf Holz. 36 x 25,5 cm. Monogrammiert.

       Hans Hofmann: Ohne Titel (1948). Abstrakter Expressionismus. Öl auf Holz. 36 x 25,5 cm. Monogrammiert. Bezüglich des Erhaltungszustandes sehen Sie sich bitte die Photos an. Das Bild hat vor allem im Randbereich Farbabplatzer. Auf der Rückseite des Werkes befindet sich ein Moisio-Photographie-Aufkleber aus den Vierziger Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts, auf dem zusätzlich handschriftlich »Hans Hofmann Provincetown 1948« vermerkt ist. Diese Arbeit Hofmanns stammt aus dem Besitz des Photographen Walfred Moisio (1910-2002). Hans Hofmann, einen der bedeutendsten abstrakten Maler des 20. Jahrhunderts, gilt es in Deutschland noch zu entdecken. Ausgebildet in München und Paris, wo er Künstlern wie Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Juan Gris und Georges Rouault begegnete, etablierte sich der gebürtige Mittelfranke von 1930 an in den USA. Mit außerordentlich erfolgreichen Kunstschulen in New York und Provincetown übte er eine nachhaltige Wirkung auf eine ganze Generation amerikanischer Künstler der Nachkriegszeit aus. Er gilt als Katalysator des Abstrakten Expressionismus und beeinflusste Maler wie Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Lee Krasner, Philip Guston, Robert Motherwell oder Barnett Newman maßgeblich. Seine stilistisch variantenreichen, in kraftvollen Farben virtuos gestalteten Gemälde wurden in allen führenden Museen der USA ausgestellt und fanden Eingang in deren Sammlungen. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        The Second World War

      London: Cassell & Co. Ltd.,, 1948–54. [The Gathering Storm; Their Finest Hour; The Grand Alliance; The Hinge of Fate; Closing the Ring; Triumph and Tragedy.] 6 volumes, octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in dark blue morocco, titles gilt to spines, raised bands, single ruled gilt panel to compartments with rampant lion device gilt to the first, fifth and sixth, single rule to boards, autograph block to front boards, twin rule to turn-ins, burgundy endpapers, gilt edges. With diagrams and tables throughout the text. The occasional minor blemish, an excellent set in fine bindings. First editions, first impressions of the single most important historical account of the Second World War. Signed and dated 1950 by Churchill to the half-title of volume 2. Max Beloff observed that there was no statesman of the twentieth century "whose retrospective accounts of the great events in which he has taken part have so dominated subsequent historical thinking." A man who had always primarily made his living by his pen, Churchill was the only major war leader to give an authoritative account of the conflict, and his ringing phrases seeped into the collective memory. As J. H. Plumb noted in his essay in A. J. P. Taylor's Churchill: Four Faces and the Man "Churchill the historian lies at the very heart of all historiography of the Second World War, and will always remain there… [we still] move down the broad avenues which he drove through war's confusion and complexity."
