3D-Papierskulpturen des verstorbenen James Rizzi. 175 Exemplare. James Rizzi war einer der bekanntesten Pop-Art Künstler unserer Zeit. Die große Popularität seiner Arbeiten äußerte sich nicht nur in seinen erfolgreichen Museums- und Galerie-Ausstellungen. Er gestaltete auch Automobile, Platten- und CD-Cover, Animations-Musikvideos, verschiedenste Gebrauchsgegenstände und sogar die Außenfläche einer Boeing. Er war sehr produktiv und hat zeitweise für mehrere Jahre vorgearbeitet. Daher ist es möglich, auch nach seinem Tod im Dezember 2011 (drucksignierte) Auflagen von James Rizzi zu erhalten. Weitere Preissteigerungen zu erwarten. Die dynamischen 3D-Papierskulpturen des Künstlers erzielten bereits zu seinen Lebzeiten hohe Wertsteigerungen. Ein Exemplar der handsignierten 350er-Edition „New York City – a Marathon for all“ wurde z. B. vor 15 Jahren mit einem Ausgabepreis von 4.500 Dollar gehandelt. Nun liegt der Preis bei weit über 25.000 Dollar. Andere Bilder wie zum Beispiel „Let´s get lost at Coney Island“ erzielten eine noch höhere Wertsteigerung. Ein typischer Rizzi, wie er charakteristischer nicht sein könnte. In seiner 3D-Papierskulptur „N.Y.C. sings and swings“ greift der Künstler sein Lieblingsthema New York auf: Er zeigt die Stadt in vier unterschiedlichen Bildteilen, die sich zu einer großen Bildkomposition vereinen. Dabei steht die rechte Seite für das fröhliche N.Y.C. bei Tag; die linke Seite für das pulsierende Nachtleben. Zu sehen sind außerdem die für Rizzi typischen tanzenden Hochhäuser, Ufos, Peace-Zeichen und lachenden Gesichter. Aufwändige 3D-Papierskulptur mit bis zu 5 mm Tiefe – aus der Werkstatt von James Rizzi. Bei seiner zeitaufwändigen Konstruktionstechnik wurden aus einem Duplikat des Bildes, welches als Hintergrund dient, die Bildelemente des Vordergrundes per Hand ausgeschnitten. Mittels Brücken aus Schaumstoff werden diese anschließend unterschiedlich hoch aufgeklebt, sodass eine zweite Bildebene und dadurch der 3D-Effekt entsteht. Drucksigniert und nummeriert. Mit Echtheitszertifikat. Eine seltene Gelegenheit, einen Rizzi in dieser Größe für unter 4000 € zu besitzen. 175 Exemplare. Zur Grafik erhalten Sie die 384-Seiten- Publikation „James Rizzi, Artwork 1993 – 2006“ mit Original-Interviews in englischer Sprache. „New York City sings and swings“, 2013 3D-Papierskulptur auf 270-g-Büttenpapier, 40 x 40 cm, limitierte Auflage 175 Exemplare, in Aluminium-Rahmung (60 x 60 cm, Rahmenbreite 1,4 cm, Rahmentiefe 2,7 cm.)

The Monkees - The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees

1968 was a turbulent year for the Monkees. Their television series, which had debuted as a huge hit two years earlier, was cancelled in February. The Birds, The Bees & the Monkees, released after the cancellation in April 1968, was their first album not to reach #1 on the Billboard chart. Internally, their group dynamic was changing, too. While they had previously collaborated on recording sessions as a unit, increasingly each Monkee took to working in a separate studio, away from the other band members (shades of the White Album, coincidentally also released in 1968). Yet, as the White Album proved, group members working individually could still deliver a brilliant album and such was the case with The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees. The album was preceded by a #1 single, the melancholy ´Daydream Believer,´ written by former Kingston Trio member John Stewart. Recorded during the sessions for their previous album, it was selected as a single after a manufacturing delay caused Colgems to scrap their initial plan of releasing ´Love Is Only Sleeping´ as a 45. Featuring Davy Jones on lead vocal, it has since become one the songs most associated with him from the Monkees´ catalog. Jones also sang lead on The Birds other hit single, the million-selling ´Valleri,´ written by the stalwart team of Boyce & Hart. Interestingly, ´Valleri,´ like ´Daydream Believer,´ had also been in the band´s repertoire for a while, originally airing on the show during the first season. It was re-recorded for the album and single release, adding a brass section at the insistence of Colgems. Once again, the stellar Louie Shelton is showcased in the arrangement, playing a lightning-fast flamenco style guitar lead. The B-side of the ´Valleri´ single, Mike Nesmith´s ´Tapioca Tundra,´ was one of the album´s more exotic moments. Nesmith also contributed the psych-tinged ´Writing Wrongs,´ continuing his efforts to expand the band´s musical vocabulary. On a similarly adventurous note, Mickey Dolenz took the lead on ´Zor and Zam,´ an anti-war allegory that was right in line with the growing movement against the Vietnam War. Dolenz also brought his Moog back for ´P.O. Box 9847,´ another Boyce & Hart composition. Taking yet another stylistic departure, ´Magnolia Sims´ was recorded in the style of a jaunty ´20s tune, complete with dubbed 78 RPM pops and surface noise. Though Jones, Nesmith and Dolenz are all prominent on The Birds, Peter Tork´s sole contribution to album was playing piano on ´Daydream Believer.´ Tork, frustrated by the splintering of the members into individual camps, left the group in December 1968. (Always one for wry humor, Nesmith commemorated Tork´s departure by giving him a gold watch with the inscription, ´From the guys down at work.´) While the group would carry on for a time, this album would be the last to capture their initial exuberance. Fortunately, through this Sundazed reissue, we have that moment in time forever preserved on dynamic high-definition vinyl. It was sourced from the original analog Colgems master tapes and is packaged in an authentic recreation of the LP cover artwork. All smiles, sleepy Jean!

Ploesti 1943 (eBook, ePUB)
10,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Operation Tidal Wave was one of the boldest and most controversial air raids by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF). At the time, the Romanian Ploesti oil fields produced about a third of all Axis oil, and was Germany´s single most important fuel source. In the summer of 1943, the USAAF decided to stage a major raid on Ploesti from air bases in Libya. The resulting Operation Tidal Wave raid on 1 August 1943 was one of the costliest to date, losing 53 aircraft, about a third of the starting force. Of the more than 150 bombers that took part in the raid, only 88 B-24s returned to Libya, 55 of which were damaged. On the other hand, of the 17 Medals of Honor awarded to US soldiers and airmen from Pearl Harbor in 1941 to D-Day in 1944, 5 were awarded to pilots of the Tidal Wave mission in recognition of their extraordinary performance. Although undoubtedly bold and heroic, the mission had questionable results. Initial assessments argued that the mission caused 40% of the refinery capacity at Ploesti to be lost but subsequent studies concluded that the damage was quickly repaired and that output had exceeded August levels within a month. This new study examines the raid in detail, exploring the reasons why its dubious success came at such a high price. Supported by maps, diagrams, and full-colour artwork including battlescenes and bird´s-eye views, this is the full story of the audacious Ploesti raid of 1943.
