Davon machte er in seinen Aquarellen und Lithographien praktgischen Gebrauch und verfaßte über diese Erfindung mehrere Schriften. Klein ist ein Vertreter der Mainzer Malerei der Goethezeit.

        Gefüllter roter Mohn.

      - Gouache, auf schwarz grundiertem festem Papier, auf alten Untersatz montiert, dort mehrfach umrandet und mit handschriftlichem Namensetikett. 27,9:15,9 cm. Literatur: H. Ludwig: Nürnberger naturgeschichtliche Malerei im 17. und 18. Jahrhundert, Marburg 1998, vgl. Abb. 71. Im Germanischen Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg befindet sich eine motivisch verwandte Gouache der Künstlerin. Die aus einer Künstlerfamilie stammende, international bekannte Malerin und Zeichnerin Barbara Regina Dietzsch war die älteste Tochter des Malers, Zeichners und Radierers J.I. Dietzsch (1681-1754). Ihre Ausbildung erhielt sie wie ihre Schwester Margarete Barbara (1726-1795) sowie ihre fünf jüngeren Brüder in der Werkstatt des Vaters. Mehrmals wurde ihr die Position einer Hofmalerin an europäischen Fürstenhöfen angeboten, die sie jedoch immer ablehnte. 1775 hatte sie einen Schlaganfall, der sie jedoch nicht davon abhielt bis 1781 weiterzuarbeiten. Ihr Hauptbeschäftigungsfeld waren die im 18. Jahrhundert beliebten Darstellungen von Vögeln, Insekten, Blumen und Landschaften sowie Jagdszenen und Porträts, die sich durch Detailgenauigkeit und -freude auszeichnen. In Nürnberg, zu dieser Zeit „Hochburg des naturwissenschaftlichen Verlags- und Illustrationswesens" fanden ihre Arbeiten großen Absatz und hatten vorbildhaften Charakter für die naturgeschichtliche Kabinettmalerei.

Hughes is best known as the foremost figure in the Harlem Renaissance. In addition to being a poet he was a social activist, novelist, playwright, and columnist. He "succeeded in his lifetime aim: to create a body of work that would epitomize the beauty and variety of African-American experiences, as well as the diversity of emotions, thoughts, and dreams that he saw common to all human beings."Beasley's collages were chosen by Angelou to perfectly compliment Hughes's poems. According to Angelou, "She sees human beings, our foibles, frailties and strengths, and she cares about what she sees." Beasley's work is influenced by two of the forerunners of African-American art, Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence, and her artwork was twice awarded the Presidential Seal. One of an edition of 300 copies, signed by Beasley and Angelou.

        The History of the Decline and Fall

      Long Beach, California:: Terry Braunstein,, 1998.. One-of-a-Kind. 5.5 x 8.25 x 1.75"; 10 pages including pastedowns. Altered book. Photomontage, mixed media, and cutouts. Hand assembled and signed by artist. Terry Braunstein: "I have been making artists books for more than twenty years, and have produced over seventy - some one-of-a-kind, others in limited edition. I began to make books because I was interested in the ways in which the viewer's response to this medium differed from that of painting and printmaking, which were my previous media to this point. I wanted to use the way that we accept knowledge as 'deep' and information 'important' from a book; the way that memory is created over pages (time) in a book; and the feelings that we bring to books from our childhood. "My bookworks began as collages in pages reminiscent of scrapbooks. Over time the collages became increasingly photographic - the images blending almost seamlessly, though surrealistically. In more recent years I have been working on 'altered books' (artists books made from previously existing books), that are more sculpture than two-dimensional. The hundreds of pages in these books have been glued together to make only two or three double-page spreads, and they may contain objects and doorways." Surreal and allusive, this altered book challenges any reader to make meaning. The tone is one constant, at least as somber as the title.

Heavy paper cover pages extending as part of the accordion with interior page bound to the foredge. Paper title labels on front and back covers. Laid in wooden box with cloth sides and interior. Alphabet illustrated title on lid exterior and interior. Evelyn Eller: "I have created a series of Alphabet Books. This is one of my earliest. Working with contrasting materials interested me, so I used transparency film, Japanese Kinwashi paper, handmade heavy paper, a wooden box, and book cloth in the same structure . The use of transparent film in an accordion fold format allowed me to show the different letters of the alphabet simultaneously. I enclosed the book in its own handmade box, which echoed the materials of the book.

        The Family that Liked to Eat

      Northbay, Ontario:: Transformer Press,, 1998.. Edition of 3. 8 x 11.25" closed; 8 pages. Carousel structure. Pop ups. Constructed from Ecohemp 89 lb cover from Ecosource Paper. Painted with watercolors. Photo images and text color-copied on Tree Free Eco-21 Paper (40% hemp, 40% flax, 20% cotton). Typeset: New Century Schoolbook. Illustrated boards. Tie closures. Caroline Langill, Home/bodies: Thoughts on Disclosure in the Recent Work of Lise Melhorn-Boe (Written in 1999 for the exhibition entitled Ghost Costumes at the White Water Gallery): "With this recent body of work, using the legacies left to her by her parents, Melhorn-Boe reveals the hidden lives of parents and children. So much of what happens in a family, as it struggles to maintain some semblance of normality, is invisible to the world. Pauline Melhorn produced a number of journals which expose a life fraught with tensions about missed opportunities, at a time when the notion of the nuclear family had reached its peak."... The Family That Liked to Eat looks at the whole family and takes us back to a childhood full of middle class values. The adopted style mimics children’s literature. The pop-up format exploits infantile aesthetics in order to emphasize the irony of their ‘happy’ lives. By utilizing this form Melhorn-Boe locates us within the environment of her childhood. This canny strategy, to subvert our adult rationality through form, opens us up to the lives of this family from the point of view of the child/adult."The colour xerox on the cover of The Family That Liked to Eat shows her [Pauline Melhorn] cheerily displaying a plate of mussels. It is not hard to imagine what drove her to involve herself in this subject to this extent, since we know full well that the body is a site of struggle for power within the family, but it is difficult to determine what drove her to write about it so, especially since it is clear through other writings, that she had other desires and needs outside of this realm of food. For this writer, this is how Pauline Melhorn has maintained her secrets—although the journals are now the property of her children, she has still managed to shield herself from them, to maintain her privacy, through a very cryptic text.

        In Good Order

      Santa Barbara, California:: Pamela Zwehl-Burke,, 1998.. Edition of 8. 13.5 x 10.5"; 12 leaves. Images printed, scraped, drawn, and re-printed from a single zinc plate. Etching on front cover. In wooden box. A series of 12 etchings showing birds making, feathering, inhabiting, and then abandoning their nest. Pamela Zwehl-Burke: "I love the challenge of working one plate through a series of images — all those pages are printed from the same zinc plate, covered in hardground, drawn, etched, wiped, printed (in as many copies as will ever exist), scraped, covered, drawn, etched, wiped, printed — through the whole sequence. I was suffering at the time as my beloved daughters moved into young adulthood, and I felt that (in Buddhism clearly articulated) truth: the only constant is change. Also, the fact that the images disappear forever felt right — the beloved children are cherished, protected, encouraged, and then GONE, hopefully into a familiar cycle of bearing and nurturing and letting go. But there's a definite bleakness in the nest's uselessness, and the temperature of the world seems to drop, as loved ones scatter.

        Original wooden handmade Shaker-style box, decorated with characters from Sendak's SWINE LAKE, made for the artist's good friend and collaborator Arthur Yorinks on the occasion of his 45th birthday

      Connecticut, 1998. "First edition !!! (only 1!)". Hand-made box, illustrated in graphite and hand-colored on lid with two pigs and a wolf, inscribed around base, "Happy Birthday Arthur!!! Mazel Tov! Bravo Arthur!" with illustration of a pig wearing a crown, and inscribed on base with Frost/Sendak copyright, date, and limitation. 10-1/2 x 5-1/4 x 3-3/4 in. Fine. "First edition !!! (only 1!)". Hand-made box, illustrated in graphite and hand-colored on lid with two pigs and a wolf, inscribed around base, "Happy Birthday Arthur!!! Mazel Tov! Bravo Arthur!" with illustration of a pig wearing a crown, and inscribed on base with Frost/Sendak copyright, date, and limitation. 10-1/2 x 5-1/4 x 3-3/4 in. Shaker-style wooden box made for Sendak's friend and collaborator Arthur Yorinks for his 45th birthday, the top decorated by Sendak with pencil drawings based on characters in his forthcoming version of Jim Marshall's SWINE LAKE (Harper Collins, 1999) - the watercoloring and red lettering along the sides were done under his supervision by Lynn Caponera Frost, who has informed us: "The box was a store bought cookie box I ripped the label off and painted for Arthur. Maurice sketched out the lid in pencil and I did all the painting." The copyright inscription on the base are in Sendak's hand. The circumstance of this personalized gift between creative friends coming into commerce probably dates back seven or eight years to when Arthur Yorinks' storage facility was auctioned by a warehouse in lieu of overdue charges. Personal diaries and a few inscribed books and posters were eventually retrieved and returned to Yorinks, but this box was hitherto unknown until it surfaced in the middle of June, 2010.
