Hardcover

[SR: 1198327], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780374187651], Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Book, [PU: Farrar, Straus and Giroux], Farrar, Straus and Giroux,  Lincoln Kirstein'swriting is a notable example of a wide historical awareness that was fired by passion and guided by taste. He established his interests in art and literature as an undergraduate at Harvard during the late 1920s.There he started the famous quarterly Hound & Horn, a magazine that published the work of such writers as James Joyce and Gertrude Stein, and also cofounded the Harvard Society for Contemporary Art, which exhibited the work of cutting-edge artists. Best known for his pioneering efforts to cultivate ballet in the United States, he actively pursued a professional partnership with legendary choreographer George Balanchine, with whom he founded both the School of American Ballet and the New York City Ballet.This collection, in paperback for the first time, showcases Kirstein’s knowledge of dance, painting, photography, theatre, politics, and literature and combines many of his best-known and most authoritative statements with less familiar but equally brilliant polemics and appreciations. Along with autobiographical essays and poetry, his commentary covers such diverse personalities as composer Igor Stravinsky, photographer Walker Evans, author Ernest Hemingway, actress Marilyn Monroe, and Robert Gould Shaw, leader of the courageous black Civil War regiment. The book also contains photographs from Kirstein’s private collection—portraits of himself and other famous artists of the time, such as Diaghilev, Cocteau, and Eisenstein, among others.

(An opening section of autobiographical forays constitutes a unique personal memoir which helps provide background information about Lincoln Kirstein for anyone unfamiliar. A talented novelist, poet and prolific campaigner on behalf of his aesthetic views and concerns, it seems that few individuals have had more profound influence than Kirstein on the course of modern American culture, as well as being a great critic and chronicler. As an undergraduate, he started the famous quarterly 'Hound & Horn', also overseeing the New York City Ballet and the School of American Ballet, which he founded for George Balanchine. This selection of his writings on dance, painting, photography, theatre, politics, and literature, combines many of Kirstein's best-known and most authoritative statements, with less familiar, but equally brilliant polemics and appreciations. And these are followed by what was considered ground-breaking essays on Balanchine, Walker Evans, Ernest Hemingway, Hart Crane, James Cagney, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and others. Even includes photographs from Mr. Kirstein's private collection.)., Farrar Straus & Giroux, 1991
