        (Würzburg - Die Festung Marienberg mit der Schottenkirche),

      1972.. . Blick von Norden auf das ehemalige Schottenkloster mit seinen Doppeltürmen über die Deutschhauskirche hinauf zur Nordflanke der Festung. Studie aus blauen Aquarellfarben über Bleistift von Wolfgang Lenz, re. u. sign. u. dat. "1972". Ca. 12 x 26 cm. - Unter entspiegeltem Glas mit Passepartout neu gerahmt. Rahmung im Preis inbegriffen. Auf leicht gebräuntem und minimal stockfleckigem Papier. - Die Aquarellfarben hat Lenz zart und dezent eingesetzt, die Konturen der Gebäude dagegen klar und präzise. - Wolfgang Lenz: Würzburg 17.3.1925 - 1.1.2014 Würzburg. Lenz studierte in den Jahren 1949-1958 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in München und verbrachte während dieser Zeit ein einjähriges Studienjahr in Rom. Lenz, der in vorbildlicher Manier alle malerischen und druckgraphischen Techniken beherrscht, trat besonders bei der malerischen Ausgestaltung repräsentativer Räume hervor. In Würzburg war die Rekonstruktion des im Krieg zerstörten Spiegelkabinettes der Residenz sein Verdienst. Mit der Ausgestaltung des Würzburger Ratssaales lässt er die Stadtgeschichte den Volksvertretern bildhaft vor Augen treten. Über Würzburg hinaus erlangten seine Ausgestaltungen des Hessischen Staatstheaters Wiesbaden, des Restaurants im Münchner Prinzregententheater und der Bayerischen Landesvertretung in Berlin Berühmtheit. Sein in der Würzburger Städtischen Sammlung befindliches Gemälde der mahnenden Brückenheiligen vor dem zerstörten Würzburg (Würzburger Totentanz - Zum 16.März 1945, 1970) stellt ein eindrucksvolles Zeugnis gegen Krieg und Gewalt dar. Eine besondere Auszeichnung erfuhr der Künstler 1992 als Ehrengast der Villa Massimo in Rom. Lenz zählt zu den herausragenden zeitgenössischen Künstlerpersönlichkeiten der Stadt.

        G: A Novel.

      Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London 1972 - First edition of the author's Booker Prize winning novel. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in an excellent near fine dust jacket with a few small closed tears. The dust jacket spine is bright and attractive. Signed by John Berger on the title page. John Berger relates the story of "G.," a young man forging an energetic sexual career in Europe during the early years of this century. With profound compassion, Berger explores the hearts and minds of both men and women, and what happens during sex, to reveal the conditions of the Don Juan's success: his essential loneliness, the quiet cumulation in each of his sexual experiences of all of those that precede it, the tenderness that infuses even the briefest of his encounters, and the way women experience their own extraordinariness through their moments with him. All of this Berger sets against the turbulent backdrop of Garibaldi and the failed revolution of Milanese workers in 1898, the Boer War, and the first flight across the Alps, making G. a brilliant novel about the search for intimacy in history's private moments.

        [Poster]: The Fabulous Cockettes Host a Private Benefit Soiree Featuring The First Annual Miss deMeanor Beauty Pagent (sic) and dance With special added attractions Lady Divine

      San Francisco: House of Good. 1972. Original large illustrated broadside on pink thin cardstock. 11.5" x 17.5". Art signed in the print by "W.R.S. '72". Slight wear, very near fine. A very attractive poster of a drag queen beauty pageant contestant parading about with bouquet and sash. This was one of the first San Francisco appearances by Divine (born Harris Glenn Milstead). Divine was described by "People Magazine" as the "Drag Queen of the Century," a character actor who usually played female roles, particularly for filmmaker John Waters. According to Bernard Jay's biography Not Simply Divine, Waters wrote a speech for Divine's appearance here, intended to shock the not easily shockable audience, "I smuggle rotten fruit into California and I eat pounds of white sugar! I had to come to California because I killed a couple of cops back East! Don't you realiuze? I killed Sharon Tate, and they've arrested the wrong people!" The Cockettes, a psychedelic drag queen troupe founded by Hibiscus (George Harris) performed outrageous parodies of show tunes, and much else. Breaking many social, cultural, and sexual boundaries along the way, they alos influenced the glitter rock-era of David Bowie, Elton John, and The New York Dolls. A very nice and much larger than usual broadside. .

        Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow [SIGNED ARTIST PROOF WOODCUT]

      NP, NP 1972 - Striking original colored woodcut depicting a young Jewish boy and girl reading and working under a tree. Three people are seen working in the background, while an Israeli flag is proudly flying under a rainbow. The lower portion of the artwork features a Sabbath candelabra, two birds, and the NFTY initials (National Federation of Temple Youth), a Reform Jewish community for high school students which commissioned Irving Amen for this work. The matted woodcut measures 17" X 12", and is titled and signed in pencil at lower margin. The wooden frame measures 25 2/8" x 20". A certificate of authenticity from Collier Art Corporation is pasted at verso of frame. Some water-staining along left side of mat (not affecting the artwork). Moderate and sporadic rubbing along edges of wooden frame. Frame in overall good, mat in fair, woodcut in fine condition. About the artist: Irving Amen (1918-2011) was a painter, printmaker and sculptor often referenced as one of the most important printmakers in the United States. Born in New York City in 1918, he began drawing at the age of four. A scholarship to the Pratt Institute was awarded to him when he was fourteen years old. With Michelangelo as his idol, he spent seven years in life classes perfecting his drawing. He headed a mural project and executed murals in the United States and Belgium. His first exhibition in woodcut was held at the New School for Social Research and his second at the Smithsonian Institution in 1949 and also exhibited at the Artists House in Jerusalem, the Library of Congress, and the National Academy of Design. Amen studied in Paris in 1950. Upon his return to the United States, he had one man shows in New York and Washington DC. In 1953, Amen traveled throughout Italy. This resulted in a series of eleven woodcuts, eight etchings and a number of oil paintings. One of these woodcuts, "Piazza San Marco #4" and its four woodblocks constitute a permanent exhibit of block printing in color at the Smithsonian Institution. Travel in Israel, Greece and Turkey in 1960 led to a retrospective show at the Artist's House in Jerusalem. His art is widely owned and loved. Irving Amen has taught at Pratt Institute and at the University of Notre Dame. He had a show of woodcuts at the Artists Studio in NYC. In 1974 he illustrated The Epic of Gilgamesh in linocuts and woodcuts for the Limited Editions Club. He designed a set of stained glass windows depicting the Twelve Tribes of Israel for Agudas Achim Synagogue in Bexley, Ohio. His work often depicts themes of Judaism, chess, people, music, Italy and Don Quixote. In his later years he lived and worked in Boca Raton, Florida. Commissions include a Peace Medal in honor of the Vietnam War. He created designs for 12 stained glass windows 16 feet high depicting the Twelve Tribes of Israel, commissioned by Agudas Achim Synagogue in Columbus, Ohio. He is listed in Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors and Engravers and the Dictionary of Contemporary American Artists by Paul Cummings. He was elected member of Accademia Fiorentina Delle Arti Del Disegno, an organization to which Michelangelo belonged. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Struttura colore n. 1.

      1972 - Aldo Schmid nasce a Trento nel 1935 da una famiglia di antiche origini viennesi. Segue i corsi superiori all’Istituto magistrale a Trento. Fra il 1952 e il 1956 il contenuto dei suoi quadri si riferisce al paesaggio trentino e veneto, Canali, Porti, Paesaggi veneziani, dove i due elementi cielo e acqua racchiudono case e barche in un’atmosfera di triste abbandono. Nel 1956 le prime figure pescatori, operai, uomini comuni, figure isolate che conducono a una ricerca compositiva e di atmosfera. Realizza anche numerose incisioni e puntesecche. L’incontro con Virgilio Guidi nel 1957 segna il momento più importante nella scelta da parte di Schmid di un’espressione artistica volta a indagare il colore come luce. Studia e cerca di conoscere da vicino gli artisti che pongono il problema umano al centro della loro opera. Nel 1957 compie numerosi viaggi a Vienna, in Germania e Olanda, dove può conoscere direttamente le opere dell’espressionismo tedesco e l’astrattismo di Mondrian. Nel 1959-1960 frequenta i corsi di Kokoschka presso la "Schule des Sehens" di Salisburgo e realizza numerosi acquerelli di nudo dove lo studio del colore è vissuto come immediatezza di traduzione di uno spazio pittorico classico. Dal 1960 tiene assidui contatti con l’ambiente veneziano dove conosce Deluigi, Vedova, Tancredi e il gruppo che opera attorno alla rivista d’avanguardia "Evento", vicina alle posizioni delle estetiche fenomenologiche. Grazie all’attività della Galleria L’Argentario di Trento, che promuoverà la sua arte, e alla sensibilità di Ines Fedrizzi, a Schmid si aprono nuove opportunità di confronto e di inserimento nell’ambiente artistico internazionale. Nel 1964 inizia lo studio della luce e del movimento con l’impiego di tele sensibilizzate e di mezzi fotomeccanici. Con il 1965 si impegna nello studio delle teorie sul colore e delle espressioni attuate in questo settore da artisti moderni come Seurat, Matisse, Mondrian, Max Bill. Allarga poi gli scambi con artisti che conducono ricerche di ordine percettivo. Nelle opere del 1966 il chiaroscuro lascia posto a immagini incentrate sulla purezza formale della geometria. Inizia anche a realizzare arazzi con feltri colorati allo scopo di evidenziare la logica della percezione visiva in rapporto alla logica della sovrapposizione. Incontra nel 1967 l’artista giapponese Abe Nobuya ed entra nel gruppo lllummation che ha come scopo quello di ricercare la metamorfosi del colore nell’arte astratta contemporanea. Sono del 1968 le grandi superfici puntinate con colori trasparenti, intese come analisi della luce nella sua essenza. L’anno successivo, centro dell’interesse del nuovo concetto spaziale è lo studio dei colori complementari intesi come opposizioni. I lavori del 1970-1971 si incentrano su un processo di verifica oggettiva dei rapporti fra colori primari e secondari. Soggiorna per qualche tempo a Milano e frequenta l’ambiente degli artisti e architetti, sostenuto dall’amico Luciano Baldessari. Nel 1973 realizza cicli di opere in rapporto ai luoghi espositivi sempre incentrati sullo studio espressivo del colore. In seguito sviluppa l’analisi delle interferenze fra i contrasti e quella dell’annullamento del margine per ottenere una fusione di colori, secondo progressive trasparenze e gradualità di pigmenti. Nel 1976 si impegna per portare a termine le 720 permutazioni del Non nero, già iniziato da tempo. Lo stesso anno realizza le Cromotipie che sono pura energia di radiazione cromatica che forma la sostanza della realtà pittorica. Studia intanto il progetto di un apparecchio elettronico di indagine delle gradualità combinatone secondo schemi di proporzione progressiva dei pigmenti, di quantità e densità dei colon Nel 1977 incontra a Parigi il critico Marcelin Pleynet e con lui prende accordi per una collaborazione. Con alcuni artisti trentini (Mauro Cappelletti, Diego Mazzonelli. Gianni Pellegrini, Luigi Senesi, Giuseppe Wenter Marmi) fonda il gruppo Astrazione Oggettiva Nel 1978 è in contatto con un

        [Poster]: The Fabulous Cockettes Host a Private Benefit Soiree Featuring The First Annual Miss deMeanor Beauty Pagent (sic) and dance With special added attractions Lady Divine

      San Francisco: House of Good. 1972. Original large illustrated broadside on pink thin cardstock. 11.5" x 17.5". Art signed in the print by "W.R.S. '72". Slight wear, very near fine. A very attractive poster of a drag queen beauty pageant contestant parading about with bouquet and sash. This was one of the first San Francisco appearances by Divine (born Harris Glenn Milstead). Divine was described by "People Magazine" as the "Drag Queen of the Century," a character actor who usually played female roles, particularly for filmmaker John Waters. According to Bernard Jay's biography Not Simply Divine, Waters wrote a speech for Divine's appearance here, intended to shock the not easily shockable audience, "I smuggle rotten fruit into California and I eat pounds of white sugar! I had to come to California because I killed a couple of cops back East! Don't you realiuze? I killed Sharon Tate, and they've arrested the wrong people!" The Cockettes, a psychedelic drag queen troupe founded by Hibiscus (George Harris) performed outrageous parodies of show tunes, and much else. Breaking many social, cultural, and sexual boundaries along the way, they alos influenced the glitter rock-era of David Bowie, Elton John, and The New York Dolls. A very nice and much larger than usual broadside. .
