Francis Bacon The complete graphic works

Francis Bacon (1909-1992) was a British expressionist artist. His portraits, including that of colleague-artist Lucian Freud, are characterised by fiercely distorted faces that give an impression of the psychic and emotional condition of the subject. His other work also often has a grotesque, dark and frightening appearance, which can be traced back to the personal obsessions of the artist. Bacon’s principal motive was to make compositions that created structure in the chaos of his life. In order to achieve the ultimate composition, Bacon made dozens of paintings of the same subject.

Jurriaan Benschop • The complete graphic works of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century • his triptych Three Studies of Lucien Freud were auctioned on 12 November 2013 for a record sum

During his career Francis Bacon (1909-1992) made 48 lithographs and etchings, which also reflect the themes of his paintings. His complete graphic works can be seen from April in the Noordbrabants Museum in ’s-Hertogenbosch and in their entirety in Francis Bacon, The complete graphic works. His graphic images, just like his paintings, provide an impressive insight into the motives of one of the most important artists of the 20th century.

Félix Vallotton Fire Beneath the Ice

Félix Vallotton Het vuur onder het ijs

text

Marina Ducrey, Katia Poletti, Isabelle Cahn, Fleur Roos Rosa de Carvalho, Nienke Bakker • first monograph in Dutch about Félix Vallotton • one of the most surprising exhibitions of this spring

As a member of the artist group ‘Les Nabis’ (the prophets), the FrenchSwiss artist Félix Vallotton (1865-1925) was at the artistic forefront of Paris during the fin de siècle. He became internationally renowned for his powerful black-and-white woodcuts, which were unparalleled both in style and technique as well as in ambience. They contain a latent tension or threatening quality and the humour is often paired with biting social criticism. Vallotton was an innovator without breaking with traditions; he sought modern solutions for classical themes. He was a keen observer, a sombre and bitter man who kept distance between himself and the world, yet was able to masterfully reproduce the cruelty and absurdity of it in his work. His powerful and colourful paintings show seemingly everyday scenes, yet with a sense of the surreal and an explosiveness that is enhanced by his cool, distant style of painting: the fire Beneath the Ice. This richly illustrated book provides an overview of all facets of Vallotton’s oeuvre and offers a new perspective on this intriguing artist who, after 20 years, is once again being honoured with an exhibition in the Dutch. Marina Ducrey and Katia Poletti are linked to the Fondation Félix Vallotton in Lausanne as conservators and have compiled the Catalogue raisonné (2005) of the painted oeuvre of Félix Vallotton. Isabelle Cahn is head conservator at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. Fleur Roos Rosa de Carvalho and Nienke Bakker are respectively Conservator Pictures and Drawings and Conservator Exhibitions at the Van Gogh Museum.

Frans Smolders, Liesbeth Reith, Jos ten Berge • a new standard work about outside art • highlights from an excellent international collection

Solitary Creations presents the work of fifty important artists from the Stadshof Collection, talented individuals that do not profile themselves as artists, but unfurl their creativity outside the box yet within plain view of the mainstream art circuit. The areas covered include both internationally renowned creations of ‘outsider art’ (an umbrella term for art brut, naive art, visionary and imaginative art) and ‘discoveries’, hidden artistic gems that deserve an audience. The book presents an array of spontaneous and idiosyncratic artistic creations, a category of art that has always existed all over the world, independent of cultural and fashionable trends. There has been place for it in art history since the beginning of the 20th century, as a phenomenon in the margins of modern and contemporary art, but the creations themselves have never been collected by art museums.

Solitary Creations presents beautiful examples of this art, almost always from the hand of irrepressible, often obsessive autodidacts. Special facets of these artworks are the unique handwriting of the maker, the unusual materials, the overcrowded images that have been photographed in detail especially for this book. Frans Smolders is an art historian and has been involved with the Stadshof Collection since 1994 as director and curator. Liesbeth Reith was initiator of the naive and outsider art collection in the Dutch in 1984 and remains involved with it to this day. Jos ten Berge is an art historian, teacher of art history at the VU Amsterdam chairman of Stichting Collectie De Stadshof.

Nico van der Endt • earlier publications about Willem van Genk have long been sold out. Now there is finally a new book. • Willem van Genk: internationally renowned as one of the greatest outsider artists • the book will be published to coincide with an exhibition of Van Genk’s work in Galerie Hamer

In Willem van Genk. Chronicles of a collaboration, gallery owner and author Nico van der Endt writes about his long, intense and complicated collaboration with the schizophrenic artist Willem van Genk (1927-2005). Business facts are interspersed with quotes, anecdotes and personal experiences, partly gained during trips they took together.

English and Dutch format 21 x 26 cm 128 pages approx. 80 illustrations bound

Nico van der Endt first met Willem van Genk in 1975 at an opening in the former Galerie De Ark. Van der Endt was wearing a long plastic raincoat, which is a life-long obsession of Van Genk. This sparked contact between the two, which develop into a friendship that would last until the artist’s death. Van der Endt kept notes about this fascinating figure right from the beginning, notes that gradually became more extensive and personal. This publication presents the complete collection of these notes alongside letters, photos and Willem van Genk’s artworks.

Anjès Gesink Birds don’t cry The small suffering of birds in the big city The Vogelklas Karel Schot bird sanctuary takes care of ill, wounded and young birds that are found in and around Rotterdam. It provides sanctuary to around 7000 birds every year. A wide variety of species are brought here because they are weak, have flown into a building or become entangled in fishing line or hair. A great deal of the birds’ suffering is caused by the actions of humans, yet these same human hands also take care of them.

Anjès Gesink, Kees Moeliker, and others • for lovers of photography, bird lovers and all city dwellers • completely topical, as more and more bird species are swapping the wild for the city

As a volunteer at the bird sanctuary, photographer Anjès Gesink became inspired by this place and took pictures of several birds that were admitted over the period of a year. This has resulted in fascinating portraits of victims of big city life, whilst simultaneously providing a beautiful overview of the bird species that occupy Dutch cities.

Marcel van der Vlugt Buds

Buds represents ‘germination’. A shoot placed on the land that is now home to the Keukenhof. This is where Marcel van der Vlugt’s great grandfather farmed land owned by the baron of the nearby castle. His grandfather Willem cultivated tulips in Sassenheim. His father worked for a flower export company and moved to Naaldwijk during the Second World War in order to avoid conscription. He set himself up as a photographer and, due to the westerly location of Naaldwijk, he photographed mainly floral scenes.

photography and text

Marcel van der Vlugt • ‘slow photography’ in optima forma: polaroid images of flowers • the photos reveal the beauty of the most ordinary flowers, such as dahlia’s and anthuriums • the book includes two beautiful fold-out sections

Inevitably, flowers are a significant theme in the work of Marcel van der Vlugt. During the summer of 1990 he began photographing them. He started with anthuriums that had been standing for too long, yet grew more and more beautiful as they withered and discoloured. The photographer gradually became increasingly conscious of abstraction and the symbolic meaning of flowers. They were given a place in his oeuvre, which as well as a completely unique aesthetic is characterised by unparalleled technical skills.

Buds is a surprising mixture of stilllifes interspersed with close-up images of women entangled in flowers. The photos are arranged in a special organic colour order, like a quest for the black tulip that culminates in two gorgeous explosions. Marcel van der Vlugt (1957) is an internationally renowned photographer who is able to both figuratively and literally unravel his leitmotif beauty in a variety of series’. His work is frequently published and exhibited in The Hague, Winterthur, Tokyo and Chicago as well as in a large review in the Kunsthal, Rotterdam in 2008. His first book was the successful Beauty and Other Secrets, 2007. He then published A New Day (2008) and Rejects (2008).

Anja Ligtenberg Pongezi Alternative rites of passage for Masai girls

photography and text

Anja Ligtenberg • photo book on a current theme • National Geographic and the Volkskrant have published articles about the project

Pongezi is the story of the alternative rites of passage for Maasai girls in Kenya. Nice Nailantei plays a central role in the book. She is a young Maasai girl who grew up to become a leader and worldwide advocate of the alternative ritual. She was able to escape the Maasai circumcision and now stands up for the other girls in her community.

English format 21 x 27 cm 112 pages approx. 80 photos bound

Maasai girls are still circumcised. Yet for the first time, strong women and girls now see an opportunity to rise up against this age-old tradition. They still perform the rituals that celebrate the transition from child to woman, but are no longer circumcised. The key to the acceptance of this process is the informed awareness of the whole community, and the ultimate goal is to provide the girls with an education instead of circumcision. Anja Ligtenberg spent several weeks photographing the changes in this traditional culture. She took these images in areas where the process is supported by AMREF Flying Doctors. She also visited an area where the rites of passage are celebrated within the family.

NUR 653

Anja Ligtenberg photographed Nice Nailantei last September in New York, where she spoke at the Clinton Global Initiative and in other places in order to raise awareness for her case. In December she photographed her life in Kenya, in her own traditional community – where she plays a central role in the organisation of the alternative ritual – and with elders, Morans and the girls. Anja Ligtenberg graduated in 1998 in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism from the International Centre of Photography in New York, where she worked until 2003. She has lived and worked in Eindhoven ever since. Her work has appeared in publications including the Volkskrant, Elsevier Magazine and National Geographic. She is specialised in documentary and portrait photography, national and international.

Morad Bouchakour Peking Dog

photography

Morad Bouchakour • new publication from one of the Dutch’ best photographers • a very surprising perspective on Beijing • limited print, for lovers of photography books

Morad Bouchakour’s Peking Dog reaches new and surprising heights by capturing images of life in an entirely different way. He conveys the message of these photos in a roundabout way, conceptually. In images that are no longer aesthetic, but rather raw, sleazy, vulgar. His photos communicate the poetry of the street like a classical, melancholic blues, with a smile.

Chinese format 30 x 22.5 cm 48 pages 39 photos paperback (pamphlet stitch)

Bouchakour’s photos tell the story of the old, walled neighbourhoods of Beijing, also known as Hutongs. These neighbourhoods slowly made way for the skyscrapers and have been traversed and surrounded by motorways and ring-roads, fly-overs and the fastest high-speed trains in the world.

NUR 653

Peking Dog presents the symbolic status that cars have gained, even in the Hutongs, and the mission to protect this status from the rise of another, new status symbol: the dog. Day after day, parked cars are protected from urinating dogs using any and every material possible. Peking Dog shows this story in many different ways; it is a project with many layers. Morad Bouchakour (1965), photographer/director left The Hague after graduating from the Royal Academy of Visual Arts and travelled to New York to work as a photographer. In 1996 he was the first Dutch photographer to participate in the World Press Photo Masterclass. His work has been published in Volkskrant Magazine, ELLE, New York Time Magazine, ESPN Magazine and Wired. He has also worked on commercial projects for large organisations such as GE, Asics, Adidas, Nokia, Nike and Delta Lloyd. Morad is internationally renowned for his portraits but he sees himself primarily as a documentary photographer.

Ed van der Elsken Amsterdam! Old photos 1947-1970 Ed van der Elsken dove into his extensive archive in the late seventies to compile a book of his black-and-white images of Amsterdam, the city in which he had always lived, with the exception of 1950-1954. He often worked in the neighbourhood of his house on Koningstraat, taking photos on the Nieuwmarkt, Zeedijk and Waterlooplein. Atmospheric images of the fifties, the riots during the turbulent sixties, lots of people, young people, but also architecture and degradation in the old city centre.

From the foreword by Ed van der Elsken: ‘My Amsterdam. My Amsterdam-ers. Often friends that you’d say “Hey mate” to, or “Hey, me old mucker”, or “Hi love”. People from respectable neighbourhoods, the Nieuwmarkt, the Zeedijk, the wallen, the Nieuwendijk, the Haarlemmerstraat, the Jordaan, the Jodenbuurt, the Kinkerbuurt, the Pijp, the Eilanden, Wittenburg, Kattenburg. People that never go to the Apollolaan or the Goudkust, or perhaps only as the milkman, or as a burglar.’ This unique document has now been reissued, including new scans from the original negatives. For more than forty years photographer and filmmaker Ed van der Elsken (1925-1990) presented his encounters with people all over the world in the form of photos, photographic books and films. His debut came in 1956 with the photo book A love story in Saint Germain des Près, which immediately made him internationally famous. In the following years he made more than twenty photography books.

Patricia de Ruijter Beings De wilde verschijnselen van het nu! The wild manifestations of today! Patricia de Ruijter has been intensively photographing her own habitat, ‘De Oeverlanden’ in Amsterdam, since 2009. ‘De Oeverlanden’ is a green strip of land along the New Lake, sandwiched between motorway and Schiphol. This is where she zooms in on nature. She studies and photographs in a poetic way, and continues where words are not enough. Whoever sees it will understand: wild and edible plants co-exist with condoms, discarded plastic packaging, car lights and indefinable debris. From a distance no more than spots on a road, but from close up, the wild manifestations of today.

LECTURIS SPRING 2014

Wind, water, oxygen, they all take pity on the useless waste materials, bring them back to life and carry them along for a while. These half-beings or manifestations often seem – if you look carefully – lifelike, sometimes repulsive, sometimes endearing. It is even sometimes impossible to distinguish them from living creatures: rubbish or life, material or energy. Seldom has plastic been so wild, or nature come so close to culture. Since 1998 Patricia de Ruijter has been researching from different perspectives how nature and culture blend together. It began with NewLand, for which she travelled to Iceland and New York. She wanted to shape to her desire to blend these two ultimate locations into a new, united existence. Then came No-land, a place where everything constantly starts over again, where very little is defined. A deserted urban location mixed with a primeval landscape. An abstract form photographed through the movement of light.

Formafantasma The form of ideas

Formafantasma provides an overview of the work of Studio Formafantasma with particular focus on their material research. Their designs are a combination of an Italian feel for style and material with a Dutch penchant for conceptual depth. Their oeuvre thus includes very few ordinary objects. Their research usually results in a series of prototypes in which material experiments, local handicrafts and the role of the object as carrier of a cultural meaning are brought together. These objects are then presented in specially designed installations. Their work is therefore both alluring and intellectually challenging.

The Swedish artist Anders Zorn (1860-1920) enjoyed great fame during his lifetime: as a portrait painter but also as a virtuoso etcher. His images, strongly influenced by Rembrandt, played an important role in his success. Zorn succeeded in amassing a collection of almost two hundred Rembrandt etchings, which are now housed in the Zorn Museum in Mora. Almost two hundred years after Zorn’s death, this wonderful collection has been scientifically researched for the first time. With the publication of this catalogue, the results of this research are made available to a wider audience. The explanation of the etchings is preceded by an introduction that, among other things, describes the history of collecting Rembrandt graphic art in Sweden, the sources from which Zorn acquired the etchings and the function of the collection. All etchings are presented in colour and the watermarks are also reproduced. Indexes, correlation tables and a bibliography further enhance this publication.

In Anne Wenzel’s sculptures and installations we see struggles between beauty and fear, the figurative with the abstract, prosperity and decay.

Wenzel finds inspiration for her work in historical sources, films and literature as well as in the media: topical images of natural disasters and civil wars. Her attention for universal subjects, such as power and struggle, connect her to a growing group of artists that bypass postmodern irony and dare to speak up about existential themes.

LECTURIS SPRING 2014

Anne van As’ miniatures depict cool mountain landscapes, wild plants and vulnerable animals. Her minuscule paintings bring the immeasurable and elusive to your fingertips. The world becomes small and manageable. Or is it just an illusion? There is something ominous about the images that at first seem so ordinary and innocent. They squeeze in between what we know and what we fear. Wilderness presents Anne van As’ themes by way of a selection of around forty small works of mountain landscapes, creatures and flowers. Each and every one is shown full size and offers an optimal perspective into the world of the artist and her sources of inspiration: images from travel books, flora and photo books from half a century ago. Wilderness is an impeccable publication about an intriguing oeuvre with a very un-Dutch thematic. Anne van As studied at the Academy for Visual Arts Minerva in Groningen. She lives and works in Amsterdam. Henriëtte Heezen is an art historian and specialises in contemporary art, sculpture and textile art and she regularly publishes articles on the subject.

Ronald de Bloeme Daan van Golden JCJ Vanderheyden Naast elkaar, tegelijkertijd Juxtaposed – Simultaneous

Auteurs

Colin Huizing, Roos van der Lint

Ronald de Bloeme (1971), Daan van Golden (1936) and JCJ Vanderheyden (1928-2012) use similar visual languages, in which the perception of reality plays a central role and is depicted in reduced, abstract forms. Van Golden’s work focuses primarily on the choice of image and the meticulous process of painting. For Vanderheyden it is the perception linked to the arrangement within the painting. And for De Bloeme it is the reinterpretation of logos, adverts and other manifestations of our consumer society. Juxtaposed, simultaneous presents the work of these artists alongside each other in different ways, so that both striking differences and the unique characters of each artist’s work are clearly visible. These characteristics form a storyline through the book that creates a ‘visual essay’ about the similarities and differences between the oeuvres. The attention is drawn to the role of our perception, the appropriation and processing of existing images and the act of painting itself.

He and susanne de vries have a 4000 m² meadow there, die wiese, which is the subject of this extensive publication. die wiese / the meadow is a selection from hundreds of photos that herman and susanne de vries took of their meadow between 1986 – the year they acquired the meadow – and 2013. The book presents the development of the meadow in all its diversity of plants, bushes and trees. There are both overview and detail photographs from each season of each year.

Jan Henderikse Kaleidoscopia

Kaleidoscopia presents fascinating assemblies of a great artist. JAN HENDERIKSE K ALEIDOSCOPIA

Jan Henderikse said goodbye to traditional, academic materials like pigments and paint on canvas in 1959. What followed were assemblages of corks and packaging materials, unadulterated kitsch, number plates on brightly coloured panels and photos taken from photo-lab refuse containers.

Antoon Melissen, with a foreword by Jan Hoet • the sequel to Jan Henderikse, Works on paper 1957 (ISBN 978-94-6226-040-5, € 19.50)

The assemblages, but also the photo works of rejects, are forms of expression of an intensive and long-term relationship with the material. Jan Henderikse is a man of great patience. He works with imperturbable regularity, sometimes for months at a time, on the development and expression of an idea.

Produced in collaboration with Galerie Schoots + Van Duyse, Antwerp

Choice is therefore not an impulsive or fleeting act for Henderikse. His work raises questions about what art is, how do we know this and who ultimately determines this: it forces us to reflect on the complex relationships between aesthetic value, utility value and exchange value. Antoon Melissen writes about contemporary art. Jan Hoet is a curator and art critic. He was founder of the SMAK in Gent and artistic manager of the MARTa Museum in Herford.

Het Nieuwste Brabant The Newest Brabant

Brabant finds itself at a fracture in time. Fundamental changes on a global level are having an increasing influence on local communities. These changes demand a reaction and a new vision, beyond today’s crisis. The King’s Commissioner, Wim van de Donk, therefore invited authoritative scientists, innovative entrepreneurs and creative minds to outline new perspectives.

compilation

Wim van de Donk • the book that writes history about the future of Brabant • Het wonder van Eindhoven / The miracle of Eindhoven (Arno Kantelberg) shows the dynamics of Brabant. Het Nieuwste Brabant / The Newest Brabant takes us a step further

LECTURIS SPRING 2014

The Newest Brabant leads the reader through their thought processes; what will Brabant look like once it has adapted to the new situation? What do the changes mean for coexistence, cohabitation and collaboration? Differing opinions and ideas are described in more than 25 provocative arguments. With The Newest Brabant, the province is investing in positive prospects for the future, in which there is place for all inhabitants of Brabant. Wim van de Donk is the King’s Commissioner in North-Brabant.

Kleine wolk / Little cloud

Kleine Wolk / Little Cloud is a collaboration between writer Bard Bothe and illustrator Leonie Verbrugge. At the end of 2012, Bard Bothe was searching for an illustrator for the story he had written. Leonie Verbrugge fitted the bill. She drew and painted illustrations on paper. The scans of these were then edited in Photoshop. ‘Who am I?’, asks Little Cloud. ‘A drop of water, a snowflake or a cloud?’ ‘Perhaps everything’, whispered the wind, blowing softly and carrying Little Cloud over seas, countries and rivers.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

ARCHITECTURE

Hubert-Jan Henket (1940) werd vanaf zijn studie geïnspireerd door de architectuur van de Moderne Beweging. Het is de sleutel tot zijn werk met tal van aansprekende projecten, waaronder het Teylers Museum in Haarlem, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, de Haarlemse rechtbank, de Nederlandse ambassade in 9 789462 260009

Bangkok, Zonnestraal in Hilversum, de Verkadefabriek en het Museumkwartier in ’s-Hertogenbosch, Museum de Fundatie in Zwolle en het Fries Museum in Leeuwarden. Met het bureau – Bierman Henket architecten – is hij gespecialiseerd in de transformatie van bestaande gebouwen en inpassing van eigentijdse gebouwen in een historische context. In Waar nieuw en oud raken maakt Henket ons deelgenoot van zijn opvattingen over de ontwikkelingen van de moderniteit in architectuur. Hij doet dat aan de hand van de geschiedenis en een aantal van zijn projecten. Al jaren bepleit hij dat intensief hergebruik voorwaarde is voor een houdbare toekomst.

HubertJan Henket Waar nieuw en oud raken Een pleidooi voor houdbare moderniteit in architectuur

Hubert-Jan Henket zet zijn opvattingen helder en bevlogen uiteen voor iedereen die geïnteresseerd is in de gebouwde omgeving. Zijn mening onderbouwt hij met de resultaten van onderzoek naar de levenscyclus van gebouwen, die hij gedurende 22 jaar als hoogleraar in Delft en Eindhoven heeft vergaard. Al vertellend laat hij de lezer ervaren hoe boeiend zijn vak is en dat wat uiteindelijk eenvoudig lijkt, het resultaat is van veel overleg, creativiteit en vakmanschap.
