Heritage Sites, Leah Burke 2019 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Heritage Sites, Leah Burke

Masters Theses

A written thesis to accompany the M.F.A. Exhibition Heritage Sites, in which vignettes of the artist’s personal and familial narratives become a backdrop for examining themes such as global tourism, the notion of universal heritage, and questioning Puerto Rico as a postcolonial place. A two channel short video layers archival imagery with original material to examine the ways Puerto Rico has been represented and misrepresented personally and globally.


Chercheur De Lumière: The Art Of Jean-Louis Rouméguère (1863-1925), Elizabeth Ann Wheeler 2019 West Virginia University

Chercheur De Lumière: The Art Of Jean-Louis Rouméguère (1863-1925), Elizabeth Ann Wheeler

Graduate Theses, Dissertations, and Problem Reports

This thesis examines the landscape paintings of Jean-Louis Rouméguère (1863-1925), who was active in southwestern France in the early twentieth century. Rouméguère, who also had a brief Parisian career, was a fervently independent artist whose work nonetheless shows the varied influences of the Barbizon school, the Impressionist movement, and even classical landscape techniques. Working exclusively in the regions stretching from Auvergne to the Pyrenees, Rouméguère created atmospheric, somatically-appealing paintings that experimented with pushing small scale to an extreme. The artist’s work demonstrates his quest to capture the intense, ever-shifting light of his region while maintaining a sense of harmony ...

Modernism And Authority : Picasso And His Milieu Around 1900, Charles J. Palermo 2018 College of William and Mary

Modernism And Authority : Picasso And His Milieu Around 1900, Charles J. Palermo

Charles Palermo

Modernism and Authority presents a provocative new take on the early paintings of Pablo Picasso and the writings of Guillaume Apollinaire. Charles Palermo argues that references to theology and traditional Christian iconography in the works of Picasso and Apollinaire are not mere symbolic gestures; rather, they are complex responses to the symbolist art and poetry of figures important to them, including Paul Gauguin, Charles Morice, and Santiago Rusiñol. The young Picasso and his contemporaries experienced the challenges of modernity as an attempt to reflect on the lost relation to authority. For the symbolists, art held authority by revealing something compelling ...


The Gift Of Art Brightens Baier Hall, Maurer School of Law - Indiana University 2018 Maurer School of Law: Indiana University

The Gift Of Art Brightens Baier Hall, Maurer School Of Law - Indiana University

Douglass Boshkoff (1971-1972 Acting; 1972-1975)

Doug Boshkoff knew immediately when he saw it. The oversized print on display at a Chicago art dealership was the perfect fit. Lichtenstein had used a neutral and cool palette and an angular design that would add a splash to even the dullest wall, and Boshkoff — a man of vision and creativity himself — knew that the Law School’s main lobby would serve as the perfect display space for the vivid print.

In September, the Boshkoff family attended the unveiling of “Imperfect Series,” a 1988 print by the American pop artist, which hangs just outside the entrance to the Jerome ...


Disputas Imperiales Por Latinoamérica: Un Ensayo Comparativo En Torno A Dos Proyectos Cartográficos De Alfredo Guido Y Miguel Covarrubias, Fabiana Serviddio 2018 CONICET/Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero

Disputas Imperiales Por Latinoamérica: Un Ensayo Comparativo En Torno A Dos Proyectos Cartográficos De Alfredo Guido Y Miguel Covarrubias, Fabiana Serviddio

Artl@s Bulletin

En este trabajo propongo ensayar una comparación entre dos proyectos artísticos casi contemporáneos realizados en los albores de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, que problematizaron su pertenencia cultural a relatos regionales preestablecidos. En primer lugar, se abordará el análisis de Carretera Panamericana(1942), obra mural del artista argentino Alfredo Guido; en una segunda instancia, se hará referencia al proyecto de los seis mapas pictóricos realizados por Miguel Covarrubias para la Exposición Internacional Golden Gate de San Francisco, en 1939 (deteniéndome en particular, en Formas artísticas del área del Pacífico yPoblaciones del Pacífico). Las cartografías pictóricas de Alfredo Guido y Miguel ...

Art Of The Harlem Renaissance, Joshua I. Cohen 2018 CUNY City College

Art Of The Harlem Renaissance, Joshua I. Cohen

Open Educational Resources

The Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s and 1930s, known during that time as the Negro Renaissance, affected a sea change in literary and artistic production. Whereas the early-20th-century avant-gardes in Europe had looked to black culture only as “primitive” inspiration, Harlem Renaissance practitioners asserted their status as agents of modern history and creators of black modernism. This important and tumultuous transformation can be tracked in the artistic expressions of the period, and in relation to key texts that shaped the movement. Planned visits to Harlem sites and collections, as well as to timely exhibitions elsewhere in New York ...


Losing Its Way: The Landmarks Preservation Commission In Eclipse, Jeffrey A. Kroessler 2018 CUNY John Jay College

Losing Its Way: The Landmarks Preservation Commission In Eclipse, Jeffrey A. Kroessler

Publications and Research

New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission has an admirable history of protecting the city's historic character. Increasingly in recent years, the commission has backed away from proactively designated sites of historical, architectural, or cultural significance as city landmarks. At the same time, the commission has shown greater deference to the owner of a property when deciding whether to designate, and to the wishes of the owners of designated properties in matters of regulation, notwithstanding that owner consent is nowhere in the landmarks law. At the same time, the commission has introduced new definitions, such as “period of significance ...


Enacting The Glastonbury Pilgrimage Through Communitas And Aural/Visual Culture, Kathryn R. Barush 2018 Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley and the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University

Enacting The Glastonbury Pilgrimage Through Communitas And Aural/Visual Culture, Kathryn R. Barush

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

The sacred sites of Glastonbury in Somerset, England have long been places of pilgrimage, connected to the legend of the journey of Joseph of Arimathea to the British Isles, and have fired the imagination from the Middle Ages to today - inspiring the Arthurian legends, folk-stories and song, and visual representations. In response to the question ‘What is Pilgrimage,’ this essay seeks to explore the conjunction of artistic representations and geographic journeys to and among the ancient topography and mysterious structures of Glastonbury, with a particular focus on how sacred travel, and especially an experience of communitas, can be engendered through ...

Strange Woods, Song Park 2018 Washington University in St. Louis

Strange Woods, Song Park

Graduate School of Art Theses

I am interested in searching for images of women that have not been adequately represented in visual art. As a visual artist, I am directed by my sense of sight to investigate and know something. I like to challenge myself to visualize things that do not already have a visual representation. It has been frustrating for me to create images of women, and I have experienced a deep ambivalence in response to the different images of women I have encountered. The socially and culturally constructed images of women that I have internalized and those that have developed from my own ...


Hidden Mickey: Animation's Exclusion From Art History, Molly Mcgill 2018 University of Colorado, Boulder

Hidden Mickey: Animation's Exclusion From Art History, Molly Mcgill

Art History Theses & Dissertations

Despite being one of the most prevalent forms of entertainment in the twentieth century, commercial animation has long been excluded from serious art historical discourse, only considered within the disciplines of film studies or visual studies. As a drawn-medium, reliant on a team of artists for completion, I argue animation warrants discussion within the discipline of art history, particularly to address modernism within the vernacular consumer in the early twentieth century. This thesis operates as a proponent for animation's inclusion in art history, as well as a historiography of the fraught relationship between animation and the art world. Animation ...
