In Jena autodidaktische Beschäftigung mit Malerei und Gasthörerschaft am Kunsthistorischen Institut. 1958 Übersiedlung nach Leipzig.

Das grafische Werk ist durch die experimentelle Erweiterung klassischer Drucktechniken geprägt. Zuerst entstanden Radierungen, dann fotomechanisch bearbeitete Serigraphien.

        The King of Comedy (Original screenplay for the 1982 film)

      New York: New Regency Films, 1981. Final Draft script for the 1982 film.Perhaps Scorsese's most underrated film, "The King of Comedy" is a brilliant study of celebrity worshipScorsese, Martin (director); Paul D. Zimmerman (screenwriter); Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Diahnne Abbott, Sandra Bernhard (starring) and American media culture by way of an exploratory journey into the mind of Rupert Pupkin, a man totally lacking in self-awareness, driven only by obsession. The titular character is played by Robert De Niro, cast completely against type, in furious pursuit of his idol, Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis), along with the genius addition of Sandra Bernhard as De Niro's crazed groupie assistant. Members of the British band, The Clash, briefly appear, including Joe Strummer.Joyce Millman of Salon called "The King of Comedy" "Martin Scorsese's second least popular movie, after The Last Temptation of Christ. Which is a shame, because it's Scorsese's second greatest film, after Taxi Driver." Set and shot on location in New York. Orange titled wrappers, noted as FINAL on the front wrapper, dated July 22, 1981, with a credit for screenwriter Zimmerman. Title page present, identical to the front wrapper. 107 leaves, with the last leaf of text numbered 106. Photographically reproduced. Pages Near Fine, wrapper Very Good plus, side-stitched.

        Christopher Pratt

      Quintus Press, Toronto 1981 - 43 p. + plates. Edition limited to 279 signed copies. Signed screenprint Hawke Bay is from an edition of 93 of which this is no. 52. Screenprint loosely laid in, 15 b&w figures, self portrait, and 81 tipped-in colour and b&w plates. 4 colour prints in separate folder. Brown leather spine with beige cloth boards. Separate cloth and paper covered folder for prints. In brown leather and cloth slipcase. Signed by Artist and Essayist. When Christopher Pratt first entered Mount Allison University in 1953 it was in pre-medicine. But after being encouraged to paint by Lawren Harris and Alex Colville, Pratt turned his attention to fine arts. Summer work as a construction surveyor at the American Naval Base at Argentia explains the precise measuring found in his paintings. In 1961, Pratt accepted the position of curator at the newly opened Memorial University Art Gallery in St. John's. He remained at the gallery for two and a half years before deciding to concentrate on his painting full-time. The result has been a prolific number of iconic clapboard houses and boats on the seashore as well as more unsettling images like building demolitions and bleak landscapes. Though some of his images supply a feeling of calm, others seem to convey the sharp, northeast winds of his native Newfoundland. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Expected folds, else very fine condition.The letter reads in full: ""We would both like to thank you very much indeed for your most kind contribution to the wedding present which the Duchy has given us. We really are delighted with the mahogany library table which will look splendid in our home at Highgrove and is exactly the right period for the house. We were also most touched to receive the balance of the gift in the form of a cheque with which we shall probably buy some more furniture. As you can well imagine, with two houses to equip from scratch we have quite a difficult task ahead of us! We have been completely overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity which so many people have shown to us, but as you will know we have a very special affection for the Duchy and all those who live and work in it and we therefore particularly appreciate your gift. We look forward very much to visiting the Duchy together in the future.''The fabled royal wedding took place at St. Paul’s Cathedral on July 29, 1981, before an invited congregation of 3,500 and an estimated worldwide television audience of 750 million. A highly desirable and personal souvenir of one of the most storied public marriages in modern history."

Gocho suffered from caries of the thoracic vertebrae, a degenerative bone disease that meant he was only around 4ft high. The disease killed him in 1983 at the age of 36, just two years after this, his final book was published. During his time his work was highly celebrated, and his influence can be seen in the work of Llorca di Corcia and some would argue, the later work of Keizo Kitajima. Cited in The History of Japanese Photography where the work is described- ÔAs if the artist had a premonition of his death, the photographs seem to be looking toward us from some far-off place; issuing an enigmatic appeal, they continue to await our unraveling todayÕ.

        Autograph musical manuscript full score of the Sonate und Sonatine für Streichquartett, dated October 1981 at conclusion,. 1. Sonate "Brinje." 2. Sonatine "Das reine Gedicht." Complete

      - [1] (title), 2-59 pp. Folio (304 x 220 mm.). Full dark orange leather with titling and decorative devices stamped in gilt to upper and "Sammlung Dr. Heinz-Georg v. Kamler, Wien" stamped in gilt to lower board. Notated in pencil on 12-stave music manuscript paper. With an autograph presentation from the composer to Dr. Heinz-Georg and Michaela von Kamler to title, signed and dated Vienna, November 9, 1981. Together with:Two autograph letters from the composer to the von Kamlers providing a description of the work, a performance of it, and news of the players (suggesting that the von Kamlers may have actually have commissioned the work) and copies of the published score and parts issued by Doblinger in 1990. Kont studied composition with Lechthaler, Polnauer, Swarowsky and Krips in Vienna and later with Milhaud, Messiaen and Honegger in Paris. The present work was inspired by the folk music Kont heard while serving as a soldier in Croatia in World War II. "Progressive pioneer who. startled musically insecure post-war Austria, or a traditionalist who is sometimes labelled a "Conservative"? - More contradictory verdicts have been applied to hardly any other composer in recent Austria's music scene than to Paul Kont. The notion of the "avant-gardist" ha[d] become manifest already in the first years after the war, when Kont - unlike many of his contemporaries - did not so much follow tendencies originating in Hindemith (and, to a lesser degree, in Webern and Schoenberg), but developed a polytonal style deriving from piano improvisation - resulting in the so-called phase of "captured improvisation". The course of his later studies in the years following 1947 resulted in the evolution of the "complex technique", in which. individual parts are treated independently and are joined together in complexes of exclusively metrical and tonal consolidation. His studies of dodecaphony from the year 1951 onwards led to an alternative concept to serialism: the employment of "statistic values". In this technique, it is of paramount importance that the distribution of pitches and other parameters result in a harmonically feasible. [whole], within the bounds of which free development is possible. Kont's most important innovation is the development of the "third tonality" (also called "new" or "wide" tonality) in the years following 1963." ". In Kont's "third tonality" functional harmony is abolished, and the diatonic and pure-interval voice-leading of the separate parts leads to a sometimes widely branching writing, which, in polyphony, often brings about surreal harmonies. [This]. theory, as formulated in his book, Antianorganikum, finds its most strident application in the Weinheber oratorio, Vom Manne und vom Weibe (" Of Man and of Woman", 1964). Parallel to these innovative concepts, Kont worked - most notably in his Lieder, which were melodically sketched during the war and worked out until 1977 - with a "method of metrical motives", in which motives, melody and form are derived from the metre, verse and stanza of the text. Kont's late work forms an applied synthesis of these various innovations." Christian Heindl, translated by Nicolas Radulescu, in Paul Kont: Music Published by Doblinger, pp. 4-5.The von Kammlers were also the dedicatees of Gottfried von Einem's 4th String Quartet, op. 63.

The exact publication date is not known, but this seems to be an early copy. Near fine in very good, price clipped dustjacket with a couple of small tears. Regarded by many as one of the great British books of the twentieth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
