        Lochmühle im Liebethaler Grund in der Sächsischen Schweiz, 1801.

      . Aquarell, mit Deckweiß gehöht, über Bleistift, mit Eiweiß lasiert, auf bräunlichem Papier, auf Untersatz montiert und mit zwei Tuschlinien etwas unregelmäßig umrandet, hier rechts unten signiert "F Catel fec", mittig betitelt "Lochmühle im Liebethaler Grund". 22,8:17,2 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung Hans Geller, verso auf dem Untersatz mit dem Stempel des Kupferstichkabinetts Dresden mit dem Vermerk: ausgeschieden am 13.11.1991; Katalog: Sammlung Hans Geller, S. Billesberger, Mosinning/München 1992, Kat. Nr. 24; Süddeutscher Privatbesitz. Literatur: Ausst. Katalog: A. Stolzenburg: Der Landschafts- und Genremaler Franz Ludwig Catel (1778-1856), Rom, Casa di Goethe, 2007, S. 16 (hier wird unsere Zeichnung erwähnt), Anmerkungen 38.. Am 28.01.1801 heiratete Catel in Berlin Sophie Frederike Kolbe, Schwester des Berliner Malers C.W. Kolbe d.J. (1781-1853). Im Herbst dieses Jahres hielten sich beide in Dresden auf, wo Catel an der Akademie Vorlesungen über Linear- und Luftperspektive gehalten haben soll. Zusammen mit A. Zingg (1734-1816) und J.Ph. Veith (1768-1837) unternahmen Catel und seine junge Frau eine Reise in die Sächsische Schweiz. Zu Beginn seiner künstlerischen Tätigkeit beschäftigte sich Catel zunächst mit Holzbildnerei und mit Illustrationen. 1806 wurde er in die Berliner Akademie aufgenommen. Ein Jahr später begab er sich mit seinem Bruder nach Paris und erlernte dort die für ihre brillante Technik bekannte französische Ölmalerei. Eine anschließende Reise in die Schweizer Alpen brachte die Hinwendung zur Landschaftsmalerei. Ende 1811 ging er für immer nach Rom und verkehrte dort im Kreise der Nazarener, etwa mit J.A. Koch (1768-1839), ohne jedoch nachhaltig von deren Kunstauffassung beeinflußt worden zu sein. Vielmehr spezialisierte er sich auf Veduten und Sittenbilder, deren effektvolle Licht- und Farbgebung ihm einen großen Abnehmerkreis verschafften. Auf mehreren Studienreisen durchstreifte er den Süden Italiens, oft in Begleitung von anderen Künstlerkollegen. Als erfolgreicher Maler konnte sich Catel ein gastliches Haus leisten und unterstützte Künstler, die weniger Glück hatten. Er gehörte 1845 zu den Gründern des Deutschen Künstlervereins, dessen Vorsitzender er 1852 wurde. Sein Vermögen hinterließ er mit dem "Pio Istituto Catel", einer Stiftung zugunsten junger deutscher und italienischer Künstler. Das "Pio Istituto Catel" existiert noch heute in Rom.

        Archive of Leaflets and Flyers Documenting Early 90s Throbbing Gristle / Psychic TV Rave Events

      (n.p.): [self published] 1991 -1994 - A collection of 35 pieces of promotional ephemera from the early California Rave scene. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge is best known as the godfather of industrial music; a genre created in U.K. during the mid-seventies, marked by an aggressive blend of hard rock and electronic music. The sound can be traced back to the Velvet Underground and electronic pioneers like Kraftwerk and would later spawn groups like Trent Reznor's Nine Inch Nails. Relocating to California in the early 90s, P-Orridge aligned himself with neo-psychedelic thinkers like Terence McKenna and the cyber-prophets at MONDO 2000. With those collaborators, Breyer P-Orridge helped founder what would become Rave Culture with 'Hyperdelic" happenings held at industrial locations in and around San Francisco. The cultural relevance of this movement cannot be over-exaggerated. In addition to the flyers is a letter from P-Orridge: "dearest Mike, / Here is the first loan repayment. / Hopefully, will get thee / rest to you early Sept. / Also thee loose / flyers are all from / England prior to our leaving. / For your box. / Also Flyers in brown / padded envelope etc / are for your stash. / L-ov-E / Genesis."

        Travelling or NeoPostModrinPreMortemism or Dieser Rasen ist kein Hundeklo (II) or Interminable Gabberjabb Number Seven

      Mt. Horeb, WI: The Perishable Press. 1991-1996. One of 125 copies on various papers (hand, mould and machine-made) numbered at least 19 times and signed at least 10, employing an "unthinkable number" of typefaces, ink colors, and press runs. With "Front Matter" as follows: "1. Just about all books start out from an idea. 2. Everything in the world is waiting to become a book. 3. Before ideas can be read they need to become words..." Page size: 10-1/4 x 7-1/4 inches (164cm x 184cm), 154 pages. Bound by the printer/publisher: old paper maps over boards (no two alike), variegated cloth spine, new. Pages are printed, collaged, rubber stamped, drilled, notched, pigment patterned, (ticket) punched, grommeted, scribed, ear tattooed, drawn, camouflaged or time clocked. The critic, Mary Lydon tells us that this No. 7 GABBERJABB also involves, "...iconoclasm/craft, art/daily life and sophistication grounded in physiology and earthiness...a reflective vehicle in its ability to break and intersect narrative lines, play with syntax, integrate found materials, convey enigma, paradox and information all at once." Walter Hamady, noted artist, printer and publisher, has been making books since 1964; the current list totals 131. In a 1991 article for "Visible Language" by Mary Lydon, "The Book as the Trojan Horse of Art. Walter Hamady, The Perishable Press Limited", the author elucidates Hamady's theory that "literacy blinds us...to the 'bookform' itself..." In order to become a purveyor of information "the picture plane" disappears from view in favor of its sole "content." Hamady is quoted, "[T]he book is perhaps the most personal form an artist can deal with. It encompasses a multiple and sequential picture plane, it is tactile, and to be understood it must be handled by the viewer, who then becomes a participant...The book as a structure is the Trojan horse of art - it is not feared by average people." The Gabberjabbs are particularly fine examples of Hamady's theory. The reader is obliged to read and re-read letters jammed together, bookmaking and the book form itself. Compared to Kurt Schwitters, Duchamp and Joseph Cornell, Hamady has been a major influence on at least one generation of book artists. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards and one-man and group exhibitions. He has been the subject of many articles, and his works are in most of this country's important rare book libraries, i.e. the Houghton, Yale, Getty Center, Newberry, Walker Art Center, Cleveland Institute of Art, as well as outside the U.S.: Bodleian Library, British Library, Klingspor Museum, Lenin Library, Royal Library Stockholm, Victoria & Albert, etc. This GABBERJABB is from one of this country's most important artists -- at the top of his game.

        Collected Ukiyo-e 1: Harunobu [Meihin Soroemono Ukiyo-e 1: Harunobu]

      [Tokyo]: Gyousei, 1991 [Tokyo]: Gyousei, 1991. First edition. Sumptuous exhibition of numerous Harunobu Suzuki ukiyo-e prints, in color, and others in black and white, with text in Japanese. Folio, 14 1/2" x 10 1/2"; olive cloth; glossy pictorial jacket, slipcase. Book, jacket and slipcase all in fine, as new condition. An extraordinarily scarce and beautiful reference on master ukiyo-e printmaker Harunobu Suzuki (about 1724/25 to 1770), assembled and described by three of the world's most learned authorities on the subject: Muneshige Narazaki, Juzo Suzuki, and Tadashi Kobayashi. Clearly designed as a collectible form, this Gyousei offering was printed for only a short time, only in Japan, and only in Japanese. 98 Harunobu prints are reproduced full-color, full-page, and full sized; the unusual dimensions chosen for these oversized pages allowed reproduction of the prints at their actual size. That dazzling display is accompanied by critical commentary in Japanese and many more prints and illustrations in black and white. This volume is part of a series by this trio of experts, who combed the museums of Japan and the world to find the best preserved examples of the best work of each of the master ukiyo-e masters. Hard to imagine an better-preserved example of this beautifully constructed art reference collectible than this one; even the slip-case, which by its nature generally absorbs something of a beating, has only the minutest flaws. The book, jacket and contents are flawless. L49

        Interbeing

      Santa Ynez, California:: Pamela Zwehl-Burke,, 1991.. Edition of 5. 8 x 11.25"; 11 pages. Horizontal concertina. 11 zinc etchings, printed, scraped, drawn, and printed from a single plate. Collagraph illustrated cover. Housed in plexiglass slipcase that sits in a detachable plexiglas stand. Etchings — flowers and vegetation — suggest the teem of interconnected life. Pamela Zwehl-Burke: "From one zinc plate, drawn, etched, printed, burnished and drawn again, a sequence describing the cycle, the interdependence of the rose and the compost (garbage). I study Buddhism daily; I was deeply moved by Thich Naht Hanh's use of the term 'interbeing,' used to explain the continual interface among all things. In this case, the stuff that supports and becomes what we so prize comes from and becomes the humble, nourishing, ground of being. The back cover is a direct print from inked stems and thorns and rose leaves."

        Swimming

      New York: Library Fellows of the Whitney Museum of Art, 1991. ONLY EDITION. Edition limited to 175 copies. Commissioned by the Whitney Museum of Art, the colophone is signed "Tina Barney & Tina Howe" in pencil on the colophon page. Nine original chromogenic prints in a quarter-leather binding, 13 x 17 in. (33.0 x 43.0 cm), presented in a cloth portfolio case. Includes a previously unpublished play by Tina Howe. Preserved in an protective chemise Tina Barney (born 1945, New York City) is an American photographer, born into a wealthy, upper class New York family. Her grandfather introduced her to photography when she was a young girl, and Barney began collecting photographs at the age of 26. It was not until the mid-1970's that Barney personally started working with photography. Initially, as a bored housewife living a life of leisure, Barney focused on candid snapshots of her well-to-do family and relatives set amongst an array of lavishly decorated backdrops, including classy New York apartments and plush New England vacation homes. With a 35mm camera she was able to reveal both the familial relationships and sheer extravagance of material wealth she was accustomed to. During the 1980's, Barney became one of the first photographers to work in the ?"directional style?" when she forfeited the spontaneous freedom of the 35mm for a more detail-oriented, large-format camera. The direction she uses in her photography ranges from posing her subjects amidst their elaborately ornate living environment to requesting that her subjects repeat a certain unplanned gesture. Barney's photography, with its mundane subject matter and stiffly posed subjects, recalls works of 19th century portraiture in which every detail included alludes to the social status of the individual being portrayed. This notion becomes clear in works such as Jill & Polly in the Bathroom (1987) and The Daughters (2002), in which the background possesses the same intricacy and significance as the subjects themselves. In her later work, Barney favors personality over context, successfully establishing a more intimate connection between viewer and subject by bringing her camera closer into their lives. For example, in Marina and Peter (1997), father and daughter are shown sharing a private moment, but at the same time acknowledge the presence of the photographer. Here Barney revives the individualism and spontaneity of a snapshot by allowing her sitters to choose their own poses instead of giving direction. According to Barney, ?"when people say that there is a distance, a stiffness in my photographs, that the people look like they do not connect, my answer is, that this is the best that we can do. This inability to show physical affection is in our heritage.?" (The Art Institute of Chicago) For almost thirty years, Tina Barney has realistically showcased the human condition through the eyes of the social elite, and has been described as a Diane Arbus of the rich. Barney currently lives and works in Rhode Island. The last copy that appeared at auction was at Swann Galleries (Photographic Literature, May 22, 2007, lot 485A) which realized $6,720

        [INDIAN WARRIORS RIDING AWAY FROM CAMP, AN AMERICAN FORT IN THE NEAR DISTANCE]

      [20th century, based on paintings and sketches ca. 1850s].. Oil on panel, 15 1/2 x 23 inches. American carved and gilded wood frame. Fine condition. An action-filled image of Indian life near an American Army fort (inscribed "Fort Pierre" lower right) along the Missouri River, this fine oil painting of a large party of heavily armed and war-painted braves riding out of their camp past their squaws and dogs, is similar to the style of the important frontier painter, Carl Wimar, but also shows the stylistic influences of other notable artists of the American West such as Seth Eastman, Anton Schonborn, and Alfred Jacob Miller. The German- born Wimar based himself in St. Louis, which he used as a springboard for sketching trips through present-day Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. "He translated these [sketches] into paintings that authentically and powerfully depict Indian life....His dramatic portrayals of the conflict between native Americans and pioneers helped to establish many of the myths of the American West that prevail to this day" - Ron Tyler. A handsome painting showing the upper Missouri in the fur trade era. Rick Stewart, CARL WIMAR: CHRONICLER OF THE MISSOURI RIVER FRONTIER (Amon Carter Museum, 1991), passim.

        My Sister--Life

      1991. KUPER, Yuri. My Sister--Life. By Boris Pasternak. Illustrated with 6 etchings by Kuper. Translated by Mark Rudman. Large folio, bound in quarter grey morocco over hand-made paper boards, in slipcase. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1991. |~| Limited Edition of 250 copies, although according to the Publisher, fewer than 200 copies were actually printed. Signed on the colophon by Kuper. Printed at the Wild Carrot Letterpress on handmade paper containing scraps of Russian newspaper clippings. "…Kuper has exhibited at galleries in Europe and the US, and his work is part of the permanent collections of MOMA, Moscow Museum of Fine Arts and Fonds National d'Art Contemporain in Paris… Kuper's work recalls the Russian Constructivists' radical, dynamic, geometric abstractions in his use of strong diagonals and primarily geometric forms. This is evident in his images for "My Sister - Life" where we find a cluster of matches scattered randomly from their box, a cup and saucer with its spoon resting partially on the table, or a pen cutting boldly across the pictorial space. As new.
