Handbuch Der Kunstzitate: Malerei, Skulptur, Fotografie in Der Deutschsprachigen Literatur Der Moderne

This handbook provides a documentation of art quotations in modern literary texts. An 'art quotation' is defined as a reference to a real art work, either by naming, description or allusion. Lexicon-like contributions present the individual 'galleries' of 250 German language authors. Exemplary text passages are specified, the corresponding art works are depicted, and the primary and secondary literature is listed. An index provides information about the frequency with which specific art quotations were used in literary history. This book makes a wealth of empirical material systematically available for the first time - both for literary and art scholarship. Published with support of the Fonds zur Forderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung.
