Fabulous Art - Literary Figures in Painting and Sculpture

The literature has spawned a lot of funny, tragic and grotesque protagonists. Painters and sculptors also take characters from novels, fairy tales and legends as a template for their works and thus help the literary characters, who exist at first only in the imagination of the reader, to be seen in their visible form.

Literature, as a source of inspiration for the visual arts, has a great tradition, the connection between the art and literature is most obvious in the book illustrations. Until the 20th century, it was not unusual to see the artists, including such famous ones today as Oskar Kokoschka, Max Liebermann and Ernst Barlach, who made illustrations for novels and poetry collections. Pictures Broadcasting, 27.6.2014) For example, Max Liebermann made the play of light and shadow (the "sun spots") to be one of his characteristic style features. The Danish painter Peder Severin Krøyer even traveled for the perfect light on a regular basis during the summertime in the small fishing village of Skagen. Here, in a small artist colony, he found new inspiration, not least because of unique atmosphere on the Denmark's northernmost point. One of his greatest works "Summer Evening on the Skagen Southern Beach" shows how precisely he captured the lighting conditions. Sagenhafte Kunst - literarische Figuren in Malerei und Skulptur Die Literatur hat viele lustige, tragische und groteske Protagonisten hervorgebracht. Auch Maler und Bildhauer nehmen sich Figuren aus Romanen, Märchen und Sagen als Vorlage für ihre Werke und verhelfen damit den literarischen Charakteren, die zunächst nur in der Fantasie der Leser existieren, zu einer sichtbaren Gestalt. Literatur als Inspirationsquelle für die bildende Kunst hat eine große Tradition, am augenscheinlichsten ist die Verbindung von Kunst und Literatur bei den Buchillustrationen. Bis ins 20. Jahrhundert war es nicht ungewöhnlich, dass Künstler, darunter heute sehr berühmte wie Oskar Kokoschka, Max Liebermann und Ernst Barlach, Illustrationen für Romane und Gedichtbände anfertigten. Insbesondere bei Kinder- und Märchenbüchern erhalten die Bilder einen hohen Stellenwert, hier sind Zeichnungen und Text mitunter untrennbar verbunden, wie z. B. bei Wilhelm Busch. Und der Einfluss der Märchen reicht bis in die Gegenwartskunst: Sigmar Polke ließ sich von deutschen Märchen und Sagen inspirieren, David Hockney malte Gemälde zu Geschichten der Brüder Grimm und Ottmar Hörl stellte 800 seiner "Froschkönige" in Darmstadt auf. Einige weitere Beispiele dafür, wie literarische Figuren ihren Weg in die bildende Kunst gefunden haben, finden Sie hier.

Pictures acquire particular importance in children's and story books where the drawings and text are sometimes inseparable, as in the works of Wilhelm Bush. And the influence of fairy tales goes back to the contemporary art. Sigmar Polke was inspired by German fairy tales and legends, David Hockney produced paintings to fairy tales by the Grimm brothers and Ottmar Hörl presented 800 of his "Frog Princes" in Darmstadt.
