        America house wrapped 1969. Siebdruck.

      90 x 62,5 cm, Tadell. Nr. 33 von 200 Exemplaren. Mit aufmontiertem Verhüllungsstoff. Vom Künstler signiert und datiert. Rückseitig gestempelt: Edition Tangente, Heidelberg. Heidelberg im Mai 1969: Für drei Tage spielte die Kunst die Hauptrolle in der idyllischen Neckarstadt. Über 80 Künstler hatten die Veranstalter Klaus Staeck, heute Präsident der Berliner Akademie der Künste, und Jochen Goetze, emeritierter Professor des Geschichtlichen Seminars der Universität Heidelberg, zu "intermedia '69" eingeladen. Das Fluxusfestival lockte etwa 5.000 Zuschauer mit Aktionen, Happenings, Filmvorführungen, Konzerten und Performances: Christo verpackte in einer legendären Aktion das Amerika-Haus, Daniel Spoerri kochte Transsylvanisches Gulasch in der Studentenmensa, die Lidl-Akademie turnte für die kommende Olympiade, Jochen Gerz verteilte Flugblätter, die Guru Guru Groove-Band heulte Dada-Rock, Klaus Rinke errichtete eine Wasserfontäne, Michelangelo Pistoletto ließ es auf der Bühne krachen, Tony Morgan verarbeitete Blumen zu Kunst. Das Publikum war nachhaltig irritiert, denn "intermedia 69" platzte in eine politisch hochexplosive Zeit. Einer zunehmend verunsicherten bürgerlichen Öffentlichkeit standen protestierende Studenten gegenüber, die mit Wucht an den bestehenden Verhältnissen rüttelten. Die Feindbilder waren deutlich und die Fronten klar abgesteckt, als sich die Kunst in Form von "intermedia 69" wie ein Keil zwischen diese beiden Parteien schob. Ablehnung kam von beiden Seiten. Die bürgerliche Öffentlichkeit fand die Aktionen einfach nur chaotisch, radikale Studenten verurteilten sie als unpolitisch und damit konventionell.

      59 x 79 cm, Kleine Farbfehlstellen sonst tadell. Gerahmt hinter Glas. Mythologisches Bild mit religiösen Anspielungen. Fries, Willy (1907 Wattwil (SG), ?18.7.1980 Wattwil (SG), Maler, Zeichner und Grafiker. Wandbild, Glasfenster, Zeichnung, Holzschnitt und Illustration. Der im ländlichen Wattwil aufgewachsene Willy Fries bricht 1929 sein Studium der Kunst- und Literaturwissenschaft an der Universität Zürich auf Anraten von Heinrich Wölfflin zugunsten einer Laufbahn als freier Künstler ab. In Paris kurzzeitig an den Académies Scandinave und Grande Chaumière sowie in den Ateliers von Fernand Léger und Amédée Ozenfant. 1930-34 weitere Ausbildung an der Universität und der Akademie in Berlin sowie Anschluss an den Kreis der bekennenden Kirche um Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Studienreisen nach Italien, Frankreich, Holland und Flandern. 1935 zwingt ihn ein Skiunfall zum Verbleib in Wattwil. Dort entsteht mit dem Gemäldezyklus Die Passion (1936-1944, Köln-Marienburg, Garnisonskirche), der die Leidensgeschichte Christi in der damaligen Gegenwart und mit dem Toggenburg als Kulisse schildert, in den folgenden Jahren sein Schlüsselwerk. 1939 Heirat mit der Pfarrerstochter Dorothea Wieser und endgültige Niederlassung in Wattwil. Fries entwickelt sich zu einem vielbeschäftigten Künstler, der zahlreiche Fresken und Glasfenster für Kirchen, Spitäler und Gemeinschaftsräume vorwiegend in der Ostschweiz, aber auch in Berlin, Bonn und Seifhennersdorf entwirft. Mit der Passion und weiteren Gemäldezyklen wie Christ ist geboren (1944-49), einer Schilderung der Weihnachtsgeschichte vor den Ruinen der zerbombten Stadt München, findet er im Kontext zeitgenössischer religiöser Malerei in der Nachkriegszeit starke Beachtung und wird mit Einzelausstellungen in der Schweiz, in Deutschland und Frankreich geehrt. Die filmische Umsetzung der Passion in eigener Regie unter dem Titel Gib uns Frieden wird 1962 mit dem Anerkennungspreis der Interfilmtagung in Brüssel prämiert und von zahlreichen Fernsehstationen gesendet. 1964 Gesamtausstellung im Kunstmuseum St. Gallen. Auszeichnung mit dem Rembrandt-Preis in Salzburg 1970. Für seine Bemühungen um die Darstellung des Evangeliums in der Malerei wird er 1972 mit dem Doktor honoris causa der theologischen Fakultät der Universität Bern geehrt. 1977 Jubiläumsausstellung in den beiden Kirchen von Wattwil. Die vom Künstler in seinem Todesjahr gegründete Stiftung veranstaltet 1982 in St. Gallen sowie 1987 in Hamburg und Berlin Gedächtnisausstellungen.

        Essay und Werkkatalog

      Jugend & Volk Wien Verlag (Vienna): Jugend & Volk Wien Verlag, (1969). Oblong quarto. 210pp. One of 99 copies, signed and numbered by the artist. Bound-in are three original lithographs, also signed and numbered by Hutter. An essay on the style of Austrian neosurrealist artist Wolfgang Hutter, followed by a catalog of his works. Brilliant colors and superimposing of vegetable/human motifs are characteristic in Hutter's stylized, erotic works. It could be said that his style was part of the post-war reaction against the Nazi regime's censorship of the Surrealism. Illustrated throughout with vibrant color and black & white reproductions of his works. Extremely fine in vellum; housed in cloth slipcase decorated with one of the artist's fantasy illustrations.

        LEAFLETS. POEMS 1965-1968

      New York: W. W. Norton & Company, (1969). First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper to Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Hardwick, and their only child Harriet: "For Elizabeth + Cal + Harriet-/with always more love-/Adrienne." Lowell appropriated the book and the margins are filled with his ticks and slashes and a few words, especially in the section "Ghazals, Homage to Ghalib," a series of meditations on contemporary life modeled on Ghalib; the similarity to the poems Lowell was then working on for NOTEBOOKS and HISTORY is remarkable as is the association value of this copy. Three years later Lowell would publish THE DOLPHIN which Rich called ìa cruel and shallow book" and ìone of the most vindictive and mean-spirited acts in the history of poetry.î Writing in AMERICAN POETRY REVIEW, she said: ìwhat does one say about a poet who, having left his wife and daughter for another marriage, then titles a book with their names [FOR LIZZIE AND HARRIET] and goes on to appropriate his ex-wifeís letters written under the stress and pain of desertion, into a book of poems nominally addressed to the new wife?î

McNamara, JFK and LBJ’s Secretary of Defense from 1961-1968.
