Paintings And Drawings In Willa Cather's Prose: A Catalogue Raisonné, Polly P. Duryea May 1993

Paintings And Drawings In Willa Cather's Prose: A Catalogue Raisonné, Polly P. Duryea

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

Paintings and Drawings in Willa Cather's Prose: A Catalogue Raisonné considers the specific artists and their visual art that greatly influenced Willa Cather's textual compositions. The Catalogue draws upon the author's research of Cather-related art from both American and European libraries and art museums. This art includes painting, drawing, illustration, and tapestry. A detailed and alphabetized list of selected artists and paintings that Cather preferred is provided. The artists are cross-referenced with Cather's own statements about their work or style. Included is biographical data for each artist, the named work of art, and often the date ...

Influence Of Shade Depth On The Effectiveness Of Selected Ultraviolet Absorbers In Reducing Fading, Wendelin Marie Rich, Patricia Cox Crews Apr 1993

Influence Of Shade Depth On The Effectiveness Of Selected Ultraviolet Absorbers In Reducing Fading, Wendelin Marie Rich, Patricia Cox Crews

Faculty Publications - Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design

This study evaluates the ability of seven ultraviolet (UV) absorbers to reduce fading of nylon colored with nine synthetic acid dyes applied at 0.5% and 0.05% owf concentrations. By including two concentrations, we could evaluate the influence of depth of shade on the absorbers’ effectiveness. Specimens were treated with UV absorbers using one of two application methods: an exhaust bath at 100°C or an immersion treatment at room temperature. After treatment, specimens were exposed to 160 AFUs of light in a xenon-arc Weather-Ometer, then evaluated instrumentally to determine the amount of color change. The UV absorbers examined ...

Potty-Talk In Parisian Plays, Elizabeth Mix Jan 1993

Potty-Talk In Parisian Plays, Elizabeth Mix

Scholarship and Professional Work – Arts

When Henry Somm and Alfred Jarry died in Paris in 1907, they were penniless and forgotten by all but their closest friends. However, the contrast between the life and work of these two artist/playwrights is graphically demonstrated by the conditions under which they passed away. Henry Somm, best known as a lesser-known Impressionist, was sixty-three years old when he died “of natural causes” in his atelier at 27 boulevard de Rochechouart. Alfred Jarry, friend of Picasso and a member of the avant-garde, died at thirty-four in indescribable filth within a closet-sized space between two floors in an apartment house ...


Two Guys From Lincoln: Cameron Shaw And Craig Roper, Daphne A. Deeds Jan 1993

Two Guys From Lincoln: Cameron Shaw And Craig Roper, Daphne A. Deeds

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

Two Guys from Lincoln: Cameron Shaw and Craig Roper offers the work of two contemporary artists who are inheritors of the anti-art tradition that continued in the wake of Duchamp with Warhol's use of popular imagery and, more recently, Koons' controversial kitsch sculpture. Though distinct in their visions of art and the world, Shaw and Roper share more than their home town. As social and aesthetic contemporaries these two artists arrive at conclusions that suggest a generational commonality. Both artists use assemblage to address issues such as the disillusionment of youth, emblems of male dominance, the ambiguity of history ...


Earth And Fire: Ceramics From The Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, Daphne A. Deeds Jan 1993

Earth And Fire: Ceramics From The Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, Daphne A. Deeds

Sheldon Museum of Art Catalogues and Publications

EARTH AND FIRE: CERAMICS FROM THE SHELDON MEMORIAL ART GALLERY, the sixth annual Sheldon Statewide exhibition is a diverse selection of ceramics made in America during the past 100 years. From delicate Victorian vases to commercial ware of the early twentieth century and contemporary sculptural works, this comprehensive assembly truly offers something for everyone.

Though EARTH AND FIRE addresses the American connibution to the ceramics tradition, clay vessels and figures have been formed by nearly every culture since the beginning of civilization. These objects, made of the very earth itself, were not only utilitarian, but also often ritualistic or created ...

The Uses Of Art: Medieval Metaphor In The Michigan Law Quadrangle, Ilene H. Forsyth Jan 1993

The Uses Of Art: Medieval Metaphor In The Michigan Law Quadrangle, Ilene H. Forsyth

About the Buildings

Within the architectural diversity of Michigan's Ann Arbor campus, a campus with a spread and a variety as extended as that of the university community itself, there is a place apart: the Cook Law Quad. The distinct ambiance created by the quad's buildings seems at variance with the melange that marks the rest of the campus where the free growth of the university over a long period of time has resulted in structures of various styles and uneven levels of distinction. Yet the quad's special character is not simply a matter of its architectural unity, as is ...
