Maria Lassnig: Works, Diaries & Writings

Text by Silvia Eiblmayr, Maria Lassnig, Laurence Rassel.

Maria Lassnig, “Naked (Lying) / Lying Naked (Rainer)”, 1948/9 is reproduced from <i>Maria Lassnig: Works, Diaries, & Writings</i>. Focusing on Maria Lassnig's (1919-2014) elaborations of the self-portrait and her exploration of her personal relations with the object, the animal and the machine, Works, Diaries & Writings includes work made by the artist from 1942 up until shortly before her death in 2014 at age 94.
As an artist, Lassnig was preoccupied with a relentless self-questioning that she continued throughout her life. Her painting aimed at "body awareness," an effort to represent on canvas how her body felt to her from the inside. Her self-portraits were frequently expressed in traumatic, surrealistic forms that merged the human figure with the animal and the machine. This new volume presents 45 of Lassnig's paintings alongside a selection of her watercolors, videos, letters, photographs, drawings, writings (including from the artist's diaries) and archival material.

Maria Lassnig, “Naked (Lying) / Lying Naked (Rainer)”, 1948/9 is reproduced from Maria Lassnig: Works, Diaries, & Writings.

Maria Lassnig: Works, Diaries & Writings

Maria Lassnig: Works, Diaries & Writings, Myself as Alpine Cow

"Reality may look deformed but isn't because it takes place on another level, the level of feelings. If this often coincides with the level that's seen visually, then it's because my feeling of distance, trained by dealing with external things, has acquired a blind confidence so that external reality—the body everyone sees—is congruent with felt reality, the reality that's so difficult to define." Maria Lassnig's 1987 painting Myself as Alpine Cow is reproduced from Walther König's excellent study, Maria Lassnig: Works, Diaries & Writings, a featured title at ARTBOOK @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel, where we will be highlighting books on women artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. continue to blog
