Handbuch der Glasmalerei (German Edition) by Josef Fischer

By Josef Fischer

"Die Eigenart vorliegenden Buches ist zunächst durch dessen Einfügung in die Serie der Hiersemannschen Handbücher bestimmt. Es soll zeigen, einerseits, wie sich die Glasmalerei aus den Anfängen buntgläsernen Fensterschmucks zu einem selbständigen Glied des Kunstgewerbes entfaltet hat, und andererseits, welche Stellung dieser Zweig des Kunstgewerbes in der allgemeinen Entwicklung der Kunst einnimmt. Diese an sich selbstverständliche Forderung wird jedoch in der Glasmalerei von der, in der Regel allerdings übersehenen Tatsache modifiziert, daß die Glasmalerei in ihrer bescheidensten, wie glanzvollsten Erscheinung durch den Charakter eines integrierenden Bestandteils des Bauprogramms, der Vollendung des Raumes, ihre eigentümliche Gestaltung erhalten hat. Von dieser architektonischen Bedeutung der Glasmalerei ist nicht nur die Anlage dieses Buches beeinflußt worden, es hat sich vielmehr als notwendig erwiesen, einen Hauptabschnitt zu schaffen, der den Schönheitsgedanken der Glasmalerei in zusammenhängender Darstellung behandeln soll." [...]

Der Kunsthistoriker Josef Ludwig Fischer präsentiert im vorliegenden Band eine umfassende und detaillierte Einführung in das Kunstgewerbe der Glasmalerei. Ausführlich erläutert er die historische Entwicklung bis ins 19. Jahrhundert und beschreibt die unterschiedlichen Techniken und Stile. Illustriert mit zahlreichen Abbildungen.
Dieses Buch ist ein unveränderter Nachdruck der Originalausgabe aus dem Jahr 1914.
