Serpentine Imagery In Nineteenth-Century Prints, Paula A. Rotschafer 2014 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Serpentine Imagery In Nineteenth-Century Prints, Paula A. Rotschafer

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, School of Art, Art History and Design

This thesis explores images of sea serpents in nineteenth-century print culture that reflect an ongoing effort throughout the century to locate, capture, catalogue, and eventually poeticize the sea serpent. My research centers primarily on the sea serpent craze that occurred within the New England and Mid-Atlantic states between 1845 and 1880 and examines the following three prints: Albert Koch’s Hydrarchos, a fossil skeleton hoax, printed in an 1845 advertisement by Benjamin Owen, a book and job printer; an 1868 Harper’s Weekly illustration titled The Wonderful Fish; and Stephen Alonzo Schoff’s etching, The Sea Serpent from 1880, based ...


“Things As They Are/Are Changed Upon The Blue Guitar”: Wallace Stevens And The Visual Arts, Olivia Sweet 2014 College of William and Mary

“Things As They Are/Are Changed Upon The Blue Guitar”: Wallace Stevens And The Visual Arts, Olivia Sweet

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Throughout his career, the American Modernist poet Wallace Stevens engaged painting as a metaphor and analog for his poetic process. For Stevens, both poet and painter create art through an effort of the mind as it interacts with the raw material of reality. The poet concerns himself with language, the painter with form and color, but the concern of rendering a reality that displays a dynamic relation between an imaginative inner world and the artist’s surroundings pertains to both. My project explores the poem "The Man with the Blue Guitar" as a pivotal composition in the development of Stevens ...

Society And Style: Prints From The Sheldon Museum Of Art, Alison G. Stewart, Paul Royster 2014 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Society And Style: Prints From The Sheldon Museum Of Art, Alison G. Stewart, Paul Royster

Zea E-Books

This collection of works explores how Societies and Styles changed over the course of Early Modern Europe (1500-1800) from the time of the advent of printing on paper to the Industrial Revolution and beyond through little-seen printed masterpieces from the Sheldon Museum of Art’s collection. Today, “print” continues to endure even as new forms of digital publications transform our world in previously unimaginable ways, just as printing did centuries ago.

This exhibition offers a view into the ways printed works of art on paper (mostly woodcuts, engravings, and etchings) showcase society and its various aspects, ranging from one Christian ...

The Neue Frau And The Significance Of Beetle Imagery In The Photomontages Of Hannah Hӧch, Hannah C. Waara 2014 Georgia State University

The Neue Frau And The Significance Of Beetle Imagery In The Photomontages Of Hannah Hӧch, Hannah C. Waara

DISCOVERY: Georgia State Honors College Undergraduate Research Journal

Hannah Höch incorporated the image of a beetle into several of her photomontages. By analyzing three of her works, Untitled (c. 1920), From Above (c. 1922), and The Coquette (1923-25), I propose Höch’s beetle to be a response to the archeological understanding of the Egyptian scarab’s meaning of rebirth, which directly relates to the contemporary social phenomenon of the neue Frau, or New Woman. Thus, by removing the beetle from the focal points of these works, Höch represents the society’s rejection of the neue Frau as well as the Berlin Dadaists’ rejection of her.

To evaluate the ...


Popular Taste In Art As Related To Culture, Fariha Rahman 2014 Westview High School

Popular Taste In Art As Related To Culture, Fariha Rahman

Senior Inquiry High School Program

We surround ourselves with visual art, from decorative mirrors and billboard ads to bedroom posters and hotel prints. These various genres of everyday art fall across a wide range, but many relate to or are inspired by institutionalized art. Those who already tend to visit or are inclined towards art museums are usually the ones who gain exposure to museum art, which often caters to their taste, but are still receptive to changes in the art that reflect our world and time period. One of the more major, recent movements in formal art is postmodernism, which developed from resisting societal ...


Preserving The Historic Garden Suburb: Case Studies From London And New York, Jeffrey A. Kroessler 2014 John Jay College of Criminal Justice

Preserving The Historic Garden Suburb: Case Studies From London And New York, Jeffrey A. Kroessler

Publications and Research

The garden city or garden suburb was a response to the social and environmental ills of cities at the turn of the twentieth century. Letchworth Garden City, Hampstead Garden Suburb, and Welwyn Garden City were built outside London in the early 1900s, and each remains a highly desirable place of residence today. From the start, each was tightly regulated, and remains so a century later. By protecting the appearance and enhancing property values, the strict application of historic preservation principles contribute to the long-term sustainability of each place. Similar garden suburbs were built in the borough of Queens in New ...


Edward Steichen And Hollywood Glamour, Alisa Reynolds 2014 University of Kentucky

Edward Steichen And Hollywood Glamour, Alisa Reynolds

Theses and Dissertations--Art & Visual Studies

As a word, glamour is hard to define, but is instantly recognizable. Its association with Hollywood movie stars fully emerged in the 1930s in the close-up celebrity portraits by photographers like George Hurrell. The aesthetic properties in these images that help create glamour are characterized by the Modernist style, known for sharp focus, high contrast, seductive poses, and the close-up (tight framing). My essay will explore the origins of the visual aesthetics of glamour, arguing that their roots can be found in the still life photographs of the 1910s, produced by fine art photographers such as Edward Steichen. This essay ...


André Masson: Into The ‘Humus Humaine, Charles J. Palermo 2014 College of William and Mary

André Masson: Into The ‘Humus Humaine, Charles J. Palermo

Arts & Sciences Book Chapters

Much of how World War I is understood today is rooted in the artistic depictions of the brutal violence and considerable destruction that marked the conflict. Nothing but the Clouds Unchanged examines how the physical and psychological devastation of the war altered the course of twentieth-century artistic Modernism. Following the lives and works of fourteen artists before, during, and after the war, this book demonstrates how the conflict and the resulting trauma actively shaped artistic production. Featured artists include Georges Braque, Carlo Carrà, Otto Dix, Max Ernst, George Grosz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Oskar Kokoschka, Käthe Kollwitz, Fernand Léger, Wyndham Lewis ...

Shantytown Vistas And Immigrant Voices: Bernardo Verbitsky, Kenneth Kemble And The Art Of Overcoming Peronism, Stephen Buttes 2013 Indiana University-Purdue University, Fort Wayne

Shantytown Vistas And Immigrant Voices: Bernardo Verbitsky, Kenneth Kemble And The Art Of Overcoming Peronism, Stephen Buttes

Stephen M Buttes

Este ensayo propone leer Villa Miseria también es América (1957) de Bernardo Verbitsky como una propuesta para superar el binario político-afectivo de la revolución anti-peronista de la década del 1950. En primer lugar, se argumenta que el personaje José Rodríguez, estudiante de izquierda torturado por el régimen peronista, puede entenderse como un retrato del artista comprometido. Luego, se establecen conexiones entre los intereses estéticos de este personaje y los del movimiento de vanguardia informalista, haciendo hincapié en la serie de collages Paisajes suburbanos (1958–61) de Kenneth Kemble. Al comparar los materiales que componen los paisajes villeros que produce Kemble ...


Painting Taiwan's Modern Identity, Shelley D. Hawks 2013 Middlesex Community College - Bedford

Painting Taiwan's Modern Identity, Shelley D. Hawks

2013 New England Association for Asian Studies Conference

Taiwan’s painters were dynamic contributors to a revolution in color that dramatically reshaped East Asian art. During the early twentieth century, new techniques of on-site sketching and the introduction of oil paint shook the foundations of Chinese and Japanese ink painting as it had been practiced for centuries. The Japanese colonization of Taiwan, a period when educators such as Ishikawa systematically introduced European painting methods, produced a cohort of painters in Taiwan professionally trained and committed to watercolor and oil painting. Building on international art trends like Impressionism and Fauvism, these painters developed a sense of color distinctly their ...
