Full Description
The Hinder/Reimers Collection - which has been owned by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate since 1993 - is one of the most important collections of modern ceramics in Germany. Its development began in the early 1950s through the combined efforts of Jakob Wilhelm Hinder (1901-1976) and Lotte Reimers (b. 1932). The focus of this large collection is on West German ceramics from the 1950s to about 1990. Since the mid-1970s Lotte Reimers increased the collection by including outstanding works from outside Germany. These 1,587 objects provide insights into the crucial trends and stylistic movements in art ceramics after the Second World War as represented by the most distinguished ceramicists of the day. Featuring explanatory texts and colour illustrations, this book presents the entire collection and, therefore, goes beyond the scope of previously published Ceramics in Germany 1955-1990. This new publication draws on the Hinder/Reimers Collection to survey the broad field of developments in studio ceramics in the latter half of the 20th century in western Germany while looking well beyond the borders of Germany. Artists include: Ingeborg and Bruno Asshoff, Richard Bampi, Jan Bontjes van Beek, Antje Brüggemann-Breckwoldt, Dieter Crumbiegel, Hubert Griemert, Horst Kerstan, Beate Kuhn, Klaus Lehmann, Otto Lindig, Thomas Naethe, Signe Pistorius-Lehmann, Walter Popp, Lotte Reimers, Reinhold Rieckmann, Karl and Ursula Scheid, Robert Sturm, Rita Ternes, Fritz and Vera Vehring (all from Germany); Aage Birck, Heidi Guthmann Birck (Denmark), Claude Champy, Gilbert Portanier (France), Édouard Chapallaz, Jean-Claude de Crousaz, Aline Favre (Switzerland), Bernard and David Leach, Colin Pearson, Joanna Constantinidis (England), Ruth Duckworth (USA), Kurt Spurey (Austria), Frank Steyaert (Belgium), Jindra Viková (Czech Republic), and Ulla Viotti (Sweden). Text in English and German.
