Homer,Anja Grebe's Ilias und Odyssee: Die Zeichnungen von John Flaxman (German PDF

By Homer,Anja Grebe

»Ilias" und »Odyssee" haben zahlreiche Künstler zu bildlichen Nachschöpfungen inspiriert. Nur wenige haben sich jedoch an umfangreichere Zyklen gewagt. Zu diesen zählt der englische Bildhauer und Zeichner John Flaxman (1755-1826), der 1793 eine der außergewöhnlichsten Bildfolgen zu Homers Epen schuf. Seine Umrisszeichnungen erinnern in ihrem klassizistischen Stil an antike Vasenmalereien. Durch den bewussten Verzicht auf Farbe und die Betonung der Linie gelangen Flaxman ausdrucksstarke Illustrationen, die bis heute seinen Ruhm begründen. Mit dieser bibliophilen Neuausgabe im originalen Querformat liegt nach mehr als a hundred Jahren erstmals wieder der vollständige Zyklus mit den dazugehörigen Gesängen vor. Die Texte werden in der klassischen Übersetzung von Flaxmans deutschem Zeitgenossen Johann Heinrich Voß wiedergeben. Abgerundet wird der Band von einer fundierten Einleitung zu Künstler und Werk sowie einzelnen Illustrationen.
