Schirmer-Mosel Verlag München leer [DEUTSCH]

fall 2017






Dear Schirmer/Moselites,

Two major American artists from the second half of the 20th century are highlighting our fall list. Both of them gained early recognition in Europe and only late in their careers were they discovered in the US.

Cy Twombly is one of them, the other one is Ronald B. Kitaj. We are proud to announce that with Volume 8, covering the years 1990 to 2011, the publication of the Cy Twombly: Catalogue Raisonné of Drawings will be completed in June. Two boxes containing four volumes each will carry these graphic treasures into American bookstores and libraries. Cy Twombly’s œuvre of over 60 years is an artistic sensation. It appeals to both visually and literary sensitive readers.

So does Ronald B. Kitaj’s illustrated autobiography entitled Confessions of an Old Jewish Painter.

Up until now unpublished and found only recently in his estate, it is a breathtaking read and unique in the history of arts, comparable only to Benvenuto Cellini’s autobiography, My Life, and Salvador Dalí’s Secret Life of Salvador Dalí.

Thomas Struth’s expanded jungle book New Pictures of Paradise will also be available in fall, Stefan Gronert’s monograph on the Düsseldorf School of Photography is available in a new printing. And last but not least, August Rodin’s Erotic Watercolors will be published on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the master’s death on November 17, 2017.

We wish you and your clients a lot of success with our forthcoming fall titles.

Best regards,

Lothar Schirmer
