This isolated domain Patera has created is never a Shangri-La -- but it also never seems to have been intended at such. But they're not structures of great beauty or even otherwise remarkable -- one of the many odd things about this odd place. First edition. His grotesque images stick like glue Kubin was fascinated by the Symbolist movement, in which the psyche plays a key role.

We acknowledge and remind and warn you that they may, in fact, be entirely unrepresentative of the actual reviews by any other measure. When I find something out of the ordinary like The Other Side, I tend to get sucked in completely and have trouble getting out until the very last page. The illustrations for Die andere Seite were originally intended for The Golem by Gustav Meyrink, but as that book was delayed Kubin instead worked his illustrations into his own novel. One is drawn into unexpected, fantastical images that speak to the subconscious, which is just one of the reasons his work has lost none of its relevance today. I loved this book. Following World War II, however, Austria attempted to reclaim her prewar heritage and hailed Kubin as a national treasure.

The Dream Realm is a sanctuary for all those who are unhappy with modern civilisation and contains everything necessary to cater for their bodily needs. While there are a number of places anyone can turn to to look at his work, it's obvious that Kubin was no ordinary artist. Already at the time of his marriage, he felt the ebbing of the fantastic visions that fueled his art. If a nightmarish -- even sometimes absurd -- vision, so too there's enough plausible and real to the narrator's experiences that the horror is all the more powerful. Die Leute redeten sich in ihre Suggestionen gewaltsam ein.

Alfred Kubin, book illustrator. book

Being inside Kubin's head is a dangerous and very scary place to find oneself, even if it's only for the duration of the book. There is a single gate for entry and exit, facilitating strict control of people and goods. For Kubin, the world is a frightening place, a veritable hell, in which good and evil are inseparably connected, different aspects of one and same reality.

A town named Pearl, assembled and presided over by the aptly named Patera, is the setting for his hallucinatory vision of a society founded on instinct over reason.

He illustrated the book illustrator. book of Edgar Allan PoeE. Enclosed in a custom quarter leather clamshell box. In his combination of the darkly decadent, the fantastic and the grotesque, in his evocations of dream and nightmare, his creation of an atmosphere of mystery and fear he resembles Mervyn Peake.

One is drawn into unexpected, fantastical images that speak to the Alfred Kubin, which is just one of the reasons his work has lost none of its relevance today. It's a wild trip, but for the most part well-handled, with truly memorable scenes and visions; it's nicely different, nicely weird.

He also produced a small number of oil paintings between andbut his most successful compositions are rendered on paper. First came a troubled youth and adolescence, punctuated by his mother's death when the artist was ten, a suicide attempt at nineteen, and ina complete mental and physical collapse during a brief period of military service.

Kubin also illustrated the German fantasy magazine Der Orchideengarten. They lose their fortune, and while the narrator gets a good job as an illustrator for one of the local papers, their situation is not a particularly happy one.

He finished this book in twelve weeks; within another four weeks he'd also illustrated it. Similar accolades attended the artist's 75th and 80th birthdays. Orthofer, 5 July Posted by.

The narrator tries to seek out Patera for some answers, but Patera remains elusive -- both omnipresent, it seems, and yet hard to reach.

Though ostensibly a gothic macabre fantasy, it is tempting to read The Other Side as a satire on the reactionary, idealist utopianism evident in German thought in the early twentieth century, highly prescient in its gloom, given later developments. Kubin had also launched a lucrative career as a printmaker and book illustrator; in addition to occasional portfolios accompanying his own writings, Kubin illustrated over books by other authors.

Hoffmannand Fyodor Dostoevskyamong others. Therefore his work, including his distinctive early works on paper, rarely come to market. Before putting the engravings away I swore that I would dedicate my life to the creation of similar works".

The best known of Kubin's own books is Die andere Seite The Other Sidea fantastic novel set in an oppressive imaginary land. Frenetic pen-strokes, sometimes livened with touches of watercolor, replaced the misty "spray technique" of former years.
