Menzel's Realism: Art and Embodiment in Nineteenth-Century Berlin

£30.00

Product description

Adolf Menzel was one of the most important German artists of the 19th century, yet he is scarcely known outside his native land. In this study a leading art historian argues that Menzel deserves to be recognized not only as one of the greatest painters and draftsmen of his century but also as a master realist whose work engages profoundly with an extraordinary range of issues - artistic, scientific, philosophical and socio-political. Michael Fried explores Menzel's large and fascinating oeuvre, and in so doing seeks to make the artist's achievement accessible to a wide audience.
1st edition hardback with dust jacket in very good condition. Slight shelf wear marks on dust jacket including a small tear on top edge. Colour and b/w illustrations throughout. Please note: large book (weight: 1.7 kg)
