Oskar Kokoschka, 1886-1980.

Edited by Richard Calvocoressi. Essays by Calvocoressi, Werner Hofman, Peter Vergo, and Georg Eisler.
The Tate Gallery, London, English, 1986. In England. 367 pp..

The Tate Gallery's 1986 exhibition of the work of Oskar Kokoschka was the most complete showing of the artist's work ever mounted; a somewhat truncated version of this powerful exhibition will be at the Guggenheim museum in New York from December 1986 through March of 1987. The Tate curator Richard Calvocoressi has produced an exemplary catlogue to the exhibition which divides Kokoschka's work into seven distinct periods and ellucidates it within a biographical and historical context through essays by such noted critics as Werner Hofmann, Peter Vergo, and painter Georg Eisler. Kokoshka's preocupation with the general artistic, musical, political, and mythological ideas of his time and with his own emotional problems makes the Tate's provision of this thorough biographical and cultural background invaluable to understanding Kokoschka's troubling and complex ouvre.
