Neuschwanstein by Gottfried Knapp

Book Description

Text in English and German. One and a half million visitors per year can't be wrong. For them the royal castle at Neuschwanstein is the pinnacle of every dreamer's architectural fairy-tale. But for the architecturally educated, for adepts of Modernism, this stylistically crude, anachronistic monument to a prince's whim is simply annoying. Admittedly, putting aside all positive or negative prejudice, it is impossible not to count this romantic recreation of a medieval castle on its breath-taking scenic site as one of the most spectacular pioneering buildings of European Historicism.

Paper Dancers : Maria Beykirch by Gottfried Knapp Paper Dancers : Maria Beykirch, Hardback (July 2016)

Pictures of poetic power and joie-de-vivre and characters, syllables of words and digits hidden in layers of painting: Maria Beykirch fires the imagination more vividly than most other artists with her drawings and paintings and conjures up in the eyes and minds of viewers an infinite succession of imaginary worlds. This title deals with her work.
