        Small Mama & Big Shoes (aus der Serie \"Art-Mama\") C-Print

       1997/2007. verso u. r. handschriftlich signiert \"Tatsumi Orimoto\", passepartouriert 55,6 x 45,2 cm (Bildmaß) Erster Teil einer ursprünglich zweiteiligen Arbeit aus Vorder- und Rückansicht. Die ganzfigurige, frontale Aufnahme der kleinen Frau irritiert und belustigt. Inmitten einer Straße auf einem Abflussdeckel steht sie in überdimensionalen Schuhen mit Gehstock in der rechten und Einkaufsbeutel in der linken Hand und blickt uns skeptisch an. Der Fotograf Tatsumi Orimoto, geb. 1946 in Kawasaki/Japan, widmet sich in seiner Serie \"Art-Mama\" seiner demenzkranken Mutter. Durch die Diskrepanz zwischen der kleinen, alten Frau und den absurd großen Schuhen zeigt er auf einfühlsame und humorvolle Weise die Traurigkeit und die Skurriliät der Krankheit und des Älterwerdens. Tatsumi Orimoto studierte am Institue of Art in Chicago und war 1972 Assistent von Nam June Paik, seit Ende der 70er-Jahre lebt und arbeitet er in Japan. Tatsumi Orimoto, Konzeptfotografie, Japan

        Georgian Repousse Icons

      Khelovneba, 1997. Hardcover. Very Good +. Khelovneba, 1997. Hardcover. Very Good +. Text is in English, Georgian and at least one other language I don't recognize. 82 full-page color glossy plates. Minimal edgewear; otherwise excellent condition. Profusely illustrated with glossy color prints. Extremely scarce: appears to be the only copy available anywhere online! Christianity was first introduced into Georgia by Andrew, Simon Cananaean and Matthew in the 1st century. But during the three centuries the expansion of Christianity in the country was prevented by the Pagan religion. And in the 4th century after the entry of St. Nino Georgia was converted to Christianity. Icons were the most available and populr aids in spreading and establishing the Christian religion. But they do not only belong to the church and its history. They also form one of the substantial components of medieval art. And as there is no history of medieval architecture without the Christian churches and other buildings of religious purpose, there can be no full picture of painting and sculpture without the icons of that period. Georgian masters, painters of icons and goldsmiths created numerous highly artistic works and made a valuable contribution in development of Christian culture. The present edition is wholly dedicated to Georgian Icons. This is more or less a full collection of embossed specimens by Georgian masters. Study of the repousse icons preserved in Georgia is very important for the history of medieval art not of Georgia alone, but also of other Christian countries. Repousse icons enable one to recreate an unbroken continuous history of the Georgian repousse art from the 8th and 9th centuries up to the 19th century including. [B14]

Sortie en salle : 27 avril 1977 Synopsis : Bertrand est autant amoureux des femmes que de l'idée même de la femme. Pour lui, toutes les femmes sont uniques et irremplaçables. Elles sont à la fois l'œuvre de sa vie, son inspiration artistique et la cause de sa mort. Mais si Bertrand est un amoureux insatiable, c'est qu'une profonde blessure est restée en lui. Celle que lui a causé une mère distante et froide, tout d'abord, et dont il ne parviendra jamais à se faire aimer. Et puis celle que lui a infligé Véra en le quittant. Depuis que Véra est partie, Bertrand erre de femme en femme, les collectionnant pour ne pas s'y attacher. Une passion qu'il résume par ces mots : « Les jambes de femmes sont des compas qui arpentent le globe terrestre en tous sens, lui donnant son équilibre et son harmonie. » SUPERBE ENSEMBLE.

Fine collection of 3 rare series of architectural prints, the third series (showing elevations and plans of existing and newly designed pipe organs) is especially rare. The first series, with 12 large plans of classical gardens, is dedicated to the Holy Roman Emperor and King of Hungary, Joseph I in Vienna. Its title-print includes a beautiful bird's eye view of a palace and its gardens. The title describes the designer of the garden plans, Georg Hätzl, as Royal art and pleasure gardener at Schönbrünn, near Vienna. The title-plate was engraved by Jakob Müller (ca. 1670-1703) in Augsburg. The palace does not appear to be either Schönbrunn or Hofburg.The second print series shows a splendid arch with columns and sculpture, bearing the title on a large rectangular panel and the imprint on a scrollwork cartouche. It is followed by 15 beautiful elevations and plans of Royal summer houses and gardens, Princely country houses and gardens, large garden halls, etc., and includes a splendid Royal building that could be used as a Town Hall or Court House as well. The extremely rare third print series shows 16 elevations and plans of pipe organs in their architectural context. It was sold and presumably engraved by the copperplate engraver Jacques Chereau (1688-1776) in Paris. The name "Chereau" appears with the address ("Paris ... ruë St. Jacques au Grand St. Remy") on plates 2 and 11, and other engravings with the same address identify him as Jacques. Each print has a title engraved on the plate, but there is no general title. The series includes a plan and two elevations of the large and richly decorated organ of the Abbaye de St. Victor, a plan and two elevations of the organ of the Church of St. Geneviève, and a plan and two elevations of the richly decorated organ of the Abbaye de Saint Germain-des-Prés, all at Paris, and 7 plans and elevations of pipe organs drawn by a certain "Feillet", whom we have not identified.With a bookplate on the front paste-down indicating that the book came from the library of the late Isaac La Lau and was given by his son to the society "Mathesis Scientiarum Genitrix" in Leiden, and with the society's label on the front board. In very good condition and with generous margins, with only an occasional minor stain or fold. Binding slightly rubbed. The prints in the second series are bound out of order.

        A Collection of over 350 Menus.

      Mostly Germany and France, c. 1883-1997. Various sizes; illustrated and printed in different techniques, one etched on sheet metal (1957), one printed on a textile ribbon; a few with traces of use; generally very good. The vast majority of the items in this impressive collection date from about 1895 to 1965. The menus were produced for a variety of private and diplomatic occasions, and also for public restaurants. Six menues are for on-board dinners and lunches on ships of the Campagnie Générale Transatlantique (1950), French Channel ferries, a Portuguese Transatlantic steamer (1943), one for the 4th of July dinner on the steamer Cincinnati in 1913 and one menu for a dinner on an Italian steamer in 1939, with 'impressive' Fascist design. On the diplomatic and political side there are a few menues for Swedish Royal meals, a gala dinner given by the Genschers (Helmut Genscher, Western German Foreign Minister) for the Dayans (Moshe Dayan, Israeli military leader and politician) in 1975, one by the Western German Federal President Scheel and his wife for Jimmy Carter and wife (with the mis-spelling of marinaded), one dinner given in honour of the Foreign Minister of Qatar in Bonn, one for the Saudi Crown Prince in 1978, and a few more German diplomatic occasions. Two menus from the 1880s are rather interesting: printed in French Indo-China, in Haiphong (Vietnam), to honour a high-ranking French military official. Among the culinary highlights must be ranking the celebration of a race horse named Moët & Chandon in 1970 with a 1911 vintage and the dinner of the Comité National des Appellations Controlées given in Margaux in 1946. The collection provides a fascinating insight into what Europe, especially Germany, was eating through a period that included seismic economic and historic changes.

      Ad 1: Berlin Kat. 3321; WorldCat (4 copies); not in BAL; ad 2: Berlin Kat. 1997; WorldCat (9 copies incl. 1 incomplete); not in BAL; Bauer, Christoph Weigel; ad 3: Cat'zArts (www.beauxartsparis.fr/ow2/catzarts) (individual prints); not in BAL; Berlin Kat.; WorldCat; for Jacques Chereau: Thieme & Becker VI, pp. 461-462. Fine collection of 3 rare series of architectural prints, the third series (showing elevations and plans of existing and newly designed pipe organs) is especially rare. The first series, with 12 large plans of classical gardens, is dedicated to the Holy Roman Emperor and King of Hungary, Joseph I in Vienna. Its title-print includes a beautiful bird's eye view of a palace and its gardens. The title describes the designer of the garden plans, Georg Hätzl, as Royal art and pleasure gardener at Schönbrünn, near Vienna. The title-plate was engraved by Jakob Müller (ca. 1670-1703) in Augsburg. The palace does not appear to be either Schönbrunn or Hofburg.The second print series shows a splendid arch with columns and sculpture, bearing the title on a large rectangular panel and the imprint on a scrollwork cartouche. It is followed by 15 beautiful elevations and plans of Royal summer houses and gardens, Princely country houses and gardens, large garden halls, etc., and includes a splendid Royal building that could be used as a Town Hall or Court House as well. The extremely rare third print series shows 16 elevations and plans of pipe organs in their architectural context. It was sold and presumably engraved by the copperplate engraver Jacques Chereau (1688-1776) in Paris. The name "Chereau" appears with the address ("Paris ... ruë St. Jacques au Grand St. Remy") on plates 2 and 11, and other engravings with the same address identify him as Jacques. Each print has a title engraved on the plate, but there is no general title. The series includes a plan and two elevations of the large and richly decorated organ of the Abbaye de St. Victor, a plan and two elevations of the organ of the Church of St. Geneviève, and a plan and two elevations of the richly decorated organ of the Abbaye de Saint Germain-des-Prés, all at Paris, and 7 plans and elevations of pipe organs drawn by a certain "Feillet", whom we have not identified.With a bookplate on the front paste-down indicating that the book came from the library of the late Isaac La Lau and was given by his son to the society "Mathesis Scientiarum Genitrix" in Leiden, and with the society's label on the front board. In very good condition and with generous margins, with only an occasional minor stain or fold. Binding slightly rubbed. The prints in the second series are bound out of order.
