New PDF release: Amerikanischer Realismus

By Gerry Souter

Der Amerikanische Realismus ist weder eine Kunstbewegung noch eine Schule, vielmehr ist er ein durch eine auáergewöhnliche Vielfalt gekennzeichnetes Phänomen, das nur schwer zu definieren ist. Er wird oft als der erste eigene Kunststil der united states betrachtet und zerfällt in eine Reihe von Kategorien, etwa den ?regionalen Realismus", den Genre-Realismus oder auch den Porträt-Realismus, je nach Ort, Sujet und Modell. So könnte sich ein Maler, der die indianischen Ureinwohner im Westen der united states oder die Seeleute an der Ostküste porträtiert, durchaus als Vertreter des Regionalen Porträt-Realismus bezeichnen. Eine einheitliche Auffassung des Amerikanischen Realismus ist daher kaum möglich. Doch unbesehen aller Unterschiede gibt es eine frappierende Gemeinsamkeit der ihm zugeordneten Künstler: ihr Anliegen, der typisch amerikanischen Lebensart (dem American lifestyle) sowie ihrem Verständnis von Freiheit Ausdruck zu verleihen. Natürlich hängt das Ergebnis der Bemühungen jedes Einzelnen von seinem subjektiven Empfinden, seiner individuellen Wahrnehmung, seinem Intellekt, seinem familiären Hintergrund, seiner Erziehung und Ausbildung ab und nicht zuletzt auch von regionalen und ethnischen Einflüssen. Das Spektrum dieser heterogenen Kunst reicht von Winslow Homers poetisch angehauchten Aquarellen aus den 1860er Jahren über die quick unheimlich und stark symbolträchtig wirkenden Bilder eines Andrew Wyeth bis hin zu den in melancholisches Licht getauchten Szenen eines Edward Hopper der 50er und 60er Jahre des 20. Jahrhunderts. Dieser Band präsentiert ein über hundert Jahre umfassendes Kaleidoskop des Amerikanischen Realismus. Den Anfang machen US-amerikanische Maler, die noch stark der culture der europäischen Kunst verpflichtet sind und sich allmählich von dieser lossagen; am Ende haben wir die Vertreter der modernen new release, deren auf amerikanischem Boden gewachsene schöpferische und teilweise rebellische Ideen auch in Europa großes Aufsehen erregen und die ihre Eigenständigkeit als eine artwork neue Pioniere beweisen.
