Bloomsbury's Byzantium And The Writing Of Modern Art, Elizabeth Sarah Berkowitz 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Bloomsbury's Byzantium And The Writing Of Modern Art, Elizabeth Sarah Berkowitz

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

“Bloomsbury’s Byzantium and the Writing of Modern Art” examines the role of Byzantine art in Bloomsbury art critics Roger Fry’s and Clive Bell’s narratives of aesthetic Modernism. Fry, in his pre-World War I and interwar writings and teachings on art, and Bell, in seminal texts such as Art (1914), have been branded by art historiography as the prime movers in a Formalist, teleological narrative of Modern art still prevalent in textbooks today. Fry’s and Bell’s ideas were later adopted by important Modernist authors and cultural figures, such as Alfred H. Barr, Jr., first director of ...


Sofonisba Anguissola And Her Early Teachers, Lily Chin 2018 CUNY Hunter College

Sofonisba Anguissola And Her Early Teachers, Lily Chin

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

This thesis explores the career of the Cremonese-born Italian Renaissance woman artist Sofonisba Anguissola (c. 1532-1625) and her training under her teachers Bernardino Campi (c. 1522-1591) and Bernardino Gatti (c. 1495-1576) during the years c. 1546-1549 (Campi) and c. 1549-1552 (Gatti).


11, The Three-Faced Representation Of The Holy Trinity, Zoe Goedecke 2018 Portland State University

11, The Three-Faced Representation Of The Holy Trinity, Zoe Goedecke

Kerver Book of Hours: Senior Capstone 2018

In the thirteenth century, artists began depicting the Holy Trinity as a single tricephalic figure, likely in an attempt to convey that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are One. This essay discusses the three-faced image of the Trinity in the Book of Hours and the history of tricephalic imagery in Christian representations, from its early appearances to eventual condemnation by the papacy.


East Meets West: A Comparative Study On The Origin Of Landscape Depiction, Conghao Tian 2018 Bard College

East Meets West: A Comparative Study On The Origin Of Landscape Depiction, Conghao Tian

Senior Projects Spring 2018

This project examines the origin and evolution of landscape depictions from both Eastern and Western traditions, covering from Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD) to Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127) in China, and from Roman antiquity to early Renaissance in Europe. Landscape depiction from each time period is examined. With the help of detailed visual analysis and overviews of religious ideology, the study reaches the conclusion that in both traditions, landscape depiction reaches its maturity both in terms of pictorial techniques and the ability to convey spirituality by the early Renaissance (11th century in China and 15th century in Italy). The project ...


The "Whys" Of The Grand Cameo: A Holistic Approach To Understanding The Piece, Its Origins And Its Context, Constantine Prince Sidamon-Eristoff 2018 Sotheby's Institute of Art

The "Whys" Of The Grand Cameo: A Holistic Approach To Understanding The Piece, Its Origins And Its Context, Constantine Prince Sidamon-Eristoff

MA Theses

The Grand Cameo for France is the largest cameo surviving from antiquity. Scholars have debated who is portrayed on the stone and what its scene means for centuries, often, although not always, limiting their interpretations to this narrow area and typically only discussing other causes in passing. This pattern can and should be broken, allowing the stone to be what all objects truly are: windows to the lives that that objects have lived, just as all physical things are; evidence of an experience part of the world went though, whose meanings have and continue to be part of a wider ...

Sebald Beham And The Augsburg Printer Niclas Vom Sand: New Documents On Printing And Frankfurt Before 1550, Alison Stewart 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Sebald Beham And The Augsburg Printer Niclas Vom Sand: New Documents On Printing And Frankfurt Before 1550, Alison Stewart

Faculty Publications and Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

This essay makes known two unpublished documents from the last years of the life of Sebald Beham (1500 Nuremberg–1550 Frankfurt) and uses them as a means to explore Beham’s relationship to printing, the town of Frankfurt, and the Augsburg printer Niclas vom Sand, who remains an unwritten part of the history of the period. The essay is organized as an autobiographical retrospective by an older man forced in prior decades to move from Nuremberg and seek employment and a new life elsewhere. The end of the essay evaluates the documents and aspects of them.

Gentile Da Fabriano's Adoration Of The Magi: Iconographic Influences Of Decorative Arts From The Islamic World, Ruby Brooke 2018 Bard College

Gentile Da Fabriano's Adoration Of The Magi: Iconographic Influences Of Decorative Arts From The Islamic World, Ruby Brooke

Senior Projects Spring 2018

This project is an exploration of Islamic influences on the Adoration of the Magi (1423) by Gentile da Fabriano. The use of pseudo-inscriptions and Eastern textiles in the painting are central to the investigation of the work. I discuss the contact between the Republic of Florence and Muslim regions and the role of trade, crusades, and political contact on the arts of Quattrocento Florence. I analyze the extent of patron's contributions to the iconography in the altarpiece and the social and political implications of the piece.


Prosocial Religion And Games: Lost & Found, Owen Gottlieb, Ian Schreiber 2018 Rochester Institute of Technology

Prosocial Religion And Games: Lost & Found, Owen Gottlieb, Ian Schreiber

Articles

In a time when religious legal systems are discussed without an understanding of history or context, it is more important than ever to help widen the understanding and discourse about the prosocial aspects of religious legal systems throughout history. The Lost & Found (www.lostandfoundthegame.com) game series, targeted for an audience of teens through twentysomethings in formal, learning environments, is designed to teach the prosocial aspects of medieval religious systems—specifically collaboration, cooperation, and the balancing of communal and individual/family needs. Set in Fustat (Old Cairo) in the 12th century, the first two games in the series address laws ...


Art Of Jerusalem: Power And Piety In The Holy Land, Abby M. Kornfeld 2018 CUNY City College

Art Of Jerusalem: Power And Piety In The Holy Land, Abby M. Kornfeld

Open Educational Resources

This course explores the art and architecture of Jerusalem from the reign of Herod through the Crusades, a period in which the city came under successive Jewish, Roman, Byzantine, Islamic, and Latin domination. Particular attention will be given to the repeated transformation of the landscape of Jerusalem through the destruction, construction, and modification of important religious and cultural monuments. We will gauge the role of Jerusalem as an object of desire for the dispossessed and for pilgrims of three faiths. In addition, we will explore how the accretion of myth and memory shaped the city’s symbolic identity, and how ...


A Shifting Devotion: Vision And Performance In Rogier Van Der Weyden's Deposition, Victoria Lauren Richthofen 2018 University of Colorado, Boulder

A Shifting Devotion: Vision And Performance In Rogier Van Der Weyden's Deposition, Victoria Lauren Richthofen

Undergraduate Honors Theses

In this thesis, I use primary sources to illustrate the religious climate surrounding the creation of Rogier van der Weyden’s masterwork, The Descent from the Cross (before 1433), also called the Deposition. In particular, I focus on the written works of Saint Bridget of Sweden and Thomas à Kempis to contextualize the altarpiece. I use St. Bridget’s writings to give a sense of the extra-canonical spirituality of the early modern era, as well as to illustrate the long tradition of expounding upon the relatively short passages found in the Bible for key events in the Christian worldview, particularly ...
