"Semiotics Of The Cloth": Reading Medieval Norse Textile Traditions, Kristen Marie Tibbs 2012 Marshall University

"Semiotics Of The Cloth": Reading Medieval Norse Textile Traditions, Kristen Marie Tibbs

Theses, Dissertations and Capstones

Reading textiles from medieval Norse society supplements written sources and also provides insight into the voice of the individual who created these textiles. This project puts women and traditionally female tasks at the forefront of historical thought and analysis. I demonstrate that we can read textiles (via their material, color, style, and geographic location) alongside texts in order to expand our understanding of past cultures. Along with valuable archaeological remains of textiles and textile production tools, this research incorporates examples from the Sagas of the Icelanders in order to further understand the significance and symbolism of clothing and production in ...


Florentine Convent As Practiced Place: Cosimo De’Medici, Fra Angelico, And The Public Library Of San Marco, Allie Terry-Fritsch 2012 Bowling Green State University

Florentine Convent As Practiced Place: Cosimo De’Medici, Fra Angelico, And The Public Library Of San Marco, Allie Terry-Fritsch

Art History Faculty Publications

By approaching the Observant Dominican convent of San Marco in Florence as a “practiced place,” this article considers the secular users of the convent’s library as mobile spectators that necessarily navigated the cloister and dormitory and, in so doing, recovers, for the first time, their embodied experience of the architectural pathway and the frescoed decoration along the way. To begin this process, the article rediscovers the original “public” for the library at San Marco and reconstructs the pathway through the convent that this secular audience once used. By considering the practice of the place, this article considers Fra Angelico ...


Romanità A Roma: Le Basiliche Del Xii Secolo Fra Tradizioni E Innovazioni, Dale Kinney 2012 Bryn Mawr College

Romanità A Roma: Le Basiliche Del Xii Secolo Fra Tradizioni E Innovazioni, Dale Kinney

History of Art Faculty Research and Scholarship

The “Romanness” (romanitas) of the cathedral portico in Civita Castellana is obvious, but within Rome the criteria of “Romanness” are not so clear. This article takes the architecture of twelfth-century churches as a case in point. Scholars generally agree that romanitas is retrospective and evocative of local tradition, but many of the signature features of these churches – bell towers, marble cloisters, Ionic trabeated porches, marble altar ciboria, paschal candlestands, the “schola cantorum” – were eleventh- or twelfth-century innovations, some- times imported from elsewhere. It is proposed that these features were “invented traditions” as defined by Eric Hobsbawm, which create a “factitious ...


The Mcvitty Book Of Hours; Finding A Link To The Illustrations, Ashton Little 2012 Hollins University

The Mcvitty Book Of Hours; Finding A Link To The Illustrations, Ashton Little

Undergraduate Research Awards

An investigation into the identity of the artists who created the images in the McVitty Book of Hours, a manuscript contained in Hollins University's special collections. The author posits that the marginal images were created by the Master of Geneva Latini, while the main images are the work of a separate, still unknown illuminator. The PDF includes the author's entry submission essay for the 2012 Undergraduate Research Awards.


Binding Ochre To Theory, Simone E. Nibbs 2012 Pomona College

Binding Ochre To Theory, Simone E. Nibbs

Pomona Senior Theses

Widely found throughout the archaeological and artistic records in capacities ranging from burial contexts to early evidence of artistic expression, red ochre has been studied in archaeological and art conservationist communities for decades. Despite this, literature discussing binders is disparate and often absent from accessible arenas. Red ochre is important historically because its use can be used to help further the understanding of early humans, their predecessors, and their cognitive capabilities. However, there is not much written speculation on the processes involved in binder selection, collection, and processing. Based on the idea of these three activities associated with binders, I ...


Kalligeneia: Fertility And Feminine Focus On An Athenian Bell Krater, Suzanne Allison 2012 Hollins University

Kalligeneia: Fertility And Feminine Focus On An Athenian Bell Krater, Suzanne Allison

Undergraduate Research Awards

An examination and interpretation of the painting of Persephone's return from the underworld on an Athenian bell krater, a vessel used for serving wine. The author posits that the female-centric imagery on the bell krater might hint that it was used in the festival of Thesmophoria, a rite celebrating Demeter and Persephone in which only women were allowed to participate. The PDF includes the author's entry submission essay for the 2012 Undergraduate Research Awards.

The Cult Of The Monstrous: Caricature, Physiognomy, And Monsters In Early Modern Italy, Sandra Cheng 2012 CUNY New York City College of Technology

The Cult Of The Monstrous: Caricature, Physiognomy, And Monsters In Early Modern Italy, Sandra Cheng

Publications and Research

Caricature emerged as a pictorial genre in early modern Italy and became a potent form of social satire practiced by the period’s foremost draftsmen, including the Carracci and Guercino. The deformed and misshapen subjects of caricature drawings coincided with a fascination with monstrosity. Monsters, aberrations, and anomalies reflected a cultural appreciation for the curious. The monster that slowly took shape in scientific literature was first alluded to in comparative physiognomic texts that related man to beast, then made brief appearances in the discourse on medical conditions, and finally became the primary focus of specialty publications. The attention given to ...
