9783858812360: Karl Bodmer: A Swiss Artist in America 1809-1893

In May of 1832, Swiss artist Karl Bodmer (1809–93) set out with Maximilian Prince of Wied, a German aristocrat and scientist, on a 28-month journey along the Ohio and Missouri rivers. For Bodmer, the expedition resulted in more than 400 watercolors and sketches of Native American people, landscapes, animals, and plants. Engravings of many of the images were subsequently used to illustrate Travels in the Interior of North America, Prince Maximilian’s well-known historical account. Karl Bodmer is an homage to the great painter who captured for the rest of the world so many important natural details of early America.

            Presented here are all 81 engravings used to illustrate Maximilian’s book, and 9 of Bodmer's original watercolors and sketches, as well as photographs of artifacts collected during the legendary passage. Bodmer’s detailed work is among the most important documents of Native American culture from that region. Almost all of these images are held today in public collections in the United States, including large collections at the Newberry Library in Chicago, the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha.

            Karl Bodmer is a richly illustrated volume that brings to life a monumental event in both art history and the history of early America.

Descripción Scheidegger & Spiess, 2009. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: gut. 2009. 1834 brach der Zürcher Karl Bodmer mit dem deutschen Naturforscher Maximilian Prinz zu Wied und dessen Gefolge zur legendär gewordenen "Reise in das innere Nord-America" auf. Die Expedition dauerte 28 Monate. Während Maximilian sein Tagebuch schrieb, Naturalien zusammensuchte und Gegenstände von Indianern erwarb, zeichnete Bodmer mehr als 400 Indianer-, Landschafts- und Tierbilder. Seine detailgetreuen Skizzen und Aquarelle, die später als Vorlagen für die druckgrafischen Illustrationen des Reiseberichts dienten, gelten als Höhepunkt in der bildnerischen Darstellung fremder Völker. Und sie zählen zu den wichtigsten Dokumenten über die Indianerkulturen am oberen Missouri. Dieses reich illustrierte Buch ist die Hommage seiner Geburtsstadt Zürich an den grossen Maler, dem wir viele Einsichten in die Lebensweise und das Aussehen der Natives in den Plains und Prärien verdanken. Es verbindet biografische Erzählung und analytische Essays und beleuchtet den eigenwilligen Stellenwert dieser Zeichnungen, Aquarelle und Stiche zwischen exakter Wissenschaft und Kunst. - Karl Bodmer, born in Zurich in 1809, is well known in the present day for the magnificent illustrations he made in 1832-34 on an extensive expedition led by the German aristocrat and scientist Prinz Maximilian zu Neuwied along the upper Missouri and Ohio rivers. Bodmer's more than 400 detailed sketches and watercolours are unsurpassed until the present day and still recognised as an epitome in depicting alien culture, and they are among the most important documents of Native American culture. This book marks Bodmer's 200th anniversary and is an homage to the painter who gave so many detailed and lively insights into the way of life and appearance of the native people in the North American plains and prairies. It presents all 81 engravings after his watercolours used to illustrate Prince Maximilian's travels in the interiors of North America, besides of many of his original watercolours and sketches and also photographs of artefacts collected during the expedition.The illustrations are complemented by essays on Bodmer's life and investigating key aspects of his oeuvre as well as the particular nature of his work between scientific illustration and art. Autor: Hartwig Isernhagen, born 1940, has been professor of American literature at the University of Basel, Switzerland, from 1981-2004. He is an expert of Karl Bodmer and his work and curator of an exhibition marking Bodmer's 200th anniversary at the North American Native Museum in Zurich in 2009.
