Renowned artist Lucian Freud (1922-2011) was commemorated in an exhibition of 50 portraits spanning his working life, held at The National Portrait Gallery London from February to May 2012. The review explored the development of his art from the potent and hypersensed studies of the 1940s to major paintings in the later phase, where the artist engaged in a complex and sometimes brutal meditation on the human being, drawn from an intimate engagement with the sitter. Freud's unsparing eye maps his subjects, sustaining single-handedly an almost unique commitment to the ambitions of high art, grounded in the canons of classic Western tradition. The audiobook also includes a review of Freud's figure drawings exhibited at Blain|Southern Gallery. Marina Vaizey is an art critic, a lecturer, and a traveler.

About the author: Eugen von Boros actually: Ludwig von Jeney was born on January 25, 1907 in Budapest. He studied law and economics in Munich and Hamburg and, after a short period as a writer, devoted himself to working on his Vatta estate in Hungary at the Hamburg newspaper. Since 1934 he worked on various estates, most recently in Silesia. After fleeing from Silesia in the spring, he and his family moved to Upper Bavaria for political development. The Tönerne Götze, these books, lead the reader to the time when the German Empire collapsed in the winter of 1944/45. Ludwig von Balassa and his family fled to the coming Russian armies from the east of the empire to southern Bavaria. Harrowing scenes take place on the crowded escape routes into the interior of Germany. It is only with great difficulty that Ludwig reaches the saving village on the Auerbach, in which the final tragedy of the collapse is now taking place. The general of Waffen-SS Hauser defends the place, although there is nothing left to defend. How the morale of the troop collapsed , how the SS tries to save face until the end, is masterfully described. The work was awarded a prize in 1948 by the publisher.Ludwig von Jeney died on June 28, 1948 in Pörnbach (Upper Bavaria ) from a measles disease .

Henry David Thoreau - Grasping the Community of...

This study takes up Thoreau's work as an early and prophetic diagnosis of the modern crisis of relationships between the individual and society. Thus Adorno's formulation of "a melancholy of science" finds its predecessor in Thoreau's famous dictum from the early pages of Walden that we live our lives in quiet desperation. The author reads Thoreau's Journal as an attempt to refute tendencies towards the narrowing of life to being understood merely in techno-economic categories which threaten the quality of the development of both the individual and the community. Thus in literary scholarship it is essential to find strategies which will critically contribute to understanding and transforming what Auerbach called "ways of life" and what Barthes referred to as "living-together".

Between National Fantasies and Regional Realities
56,20 € *

Despite its popularity during the nineteenth century, regional literature has often been overlooked with regard to its role in the development of German national consciousness. By exploring various illustrations of geographic-historical landscapes in texts written before the 1848 revolutions and after the 1871 unification, this book investigates the vital polyphony generated by unique regional voices throughout the age of nationalism. Close readings of texts by Berthold Auerbach, Theodor Storm, Wilhelm Raabe, Fritz Reuter, Theodor Fontane, Gottfried Keller, and Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach examine recognizable and unfamiliar regions. Although this study concentrates on provincial writings, literary regionalism's fictionality and simultaneous referentiality raise broader questions for the programmatic aesthetics of Poetic Realism and for inquiries into identity formation.
