Greek Bronze: Holding A Mirror To Life, Expanded Reprint From The Irish Philosophical Yearbook 2006: In Memoriam John J. Cleary 1949-2009, Babette Babich

Articles and Chapters in Academic Book Collections

To explore the ethical and political role of life-sized bronzes in ancient Greece, as Pliny and others report between 3,000 and 73,000 such statues in a city like Rhodes, this article asks what these bronzes looked like. Using the resources of hermeneutic phenomenological reflection, as well as a review of the nature of bronze and casting techniques, it is argued that the ancient Greeks encountered such statues as images of themselves in agonistic tension in dynamic and political fashion. The Greek saw, and at the same time felt himself regarded by, the statue not as he believed the ...


(Re)Verse Ekphrasis: Works From The Mcintosh Collection, Matthew Ryan Smith Apr 2009

(Re)Verse Ekphrasis: Works From The Mcintosh Collection, Matthew Ryan Smith

Matthew Ryan Smith, Ph.D.

As the exhibition title suggests, (Re)verse Ekphrasis: Works from the McIntosh Collection, flips traditional notions of ekphrasis, broadly defined as the description of a work of art, in an effort to open a range of artistic expressions to further interpretation. The exhibition intends to return a notion of creative license to the visual artist, while invoking the interpretive work of the poet or writer. What is more, in a spirit of “conversation” the works presented in the exhibition demonstrate an invested critical engagement with texts: biblical accounts, works of fiction, and of poetry, culled from sources as diverse as ...


Historic Photos Of Ernest Hemingway, James Plath Feb 2009

Historic Photos Of Ernest Hemingway, James Plath

James Plath

From the 1920s until his death in 1961, “Papa” Hemingway was a larger-than-life literary figure whose everyday exploits became legendary. He was a friend of celebrities, a war correspondent, journalist, renowned big-game hunter, record-setting saltwater angler, and hard-drinking brawler whose reputation preceded him. Though Hemingway was and remains an American icon, he was also first and foremost a human being, as these striking black-and-white photos remind.

The Brilliant Line, Emily Peters, Evelyn Lincoln, Andrew S. Raftery Jan 2009

The Brilliant Line, Emily Peters, Evelyn Lincoln, Andrew S. Raftery

Books

Renaissance engravings are objects of exquisite beauty and incomparable intricacy that are composed entirely of lines. Artists began using this intaglio process in Europe as early as 1430. This captivating catalogue focuses on the height of the medium, from 1480 to 1650, when engravers made dramatic and rapid visual changes to engraving technique as they responded to the demands of reproducing artworks in other media. The Brilliant Line follows these visual transformations and offers new insight into the special inventiveness and technical virtuosity of Renaissance and Baroque (Early Modern) engravers. The three essays discuss how engraving’s restrictive materials and ...


The Marriage Contract In Fine Art, Benjamin A. Templin Jan 2009

The Marriage Contract In Fine Art, Benjamin A. Templin

Benjamin A. Templin

This paper studies the depiction of the marriage contract in Dutch, French and English genre paintings from the 14th to 18th centuries. Increasingly, scholars have recognized that visual imagery influences the development of legal norms and institutions. During the period studied several genre artists produced paintings that dealt with themes that were central to the issues surrounding the marriage laws, such as the rights of women or whether marriage is a sacrament or a contract. Interestingly, many of the themes depicted in the collective body of marriage contract art echoes and amplifies the issues surrounding the rights of women and ...

Russian Icons And American Money, 1928-1938, Wendy Salmond Jan 2009

Russian Icons And American Money, 1928-1938, Wendy Salmond

Art Faculty Articles and Research

The article explores the marketing tactics and consumer expectations with regards to icons released in the street markets and provincial cities of Soviet Russia and acquired by American collectors from 1928-1938. These icons, including those from Byzantium in the tenth century, were seen as cultural commodities during the Russian revolution and the subsequent socialist construction. The Soviet apparatus Antikvariat was tasked with appraising the icon collections held by the Gosmuzeifond or the State Museum Reserve for exports.
