Oberlin's Sierra Leone Saltcellar: Documenting A Bicultural Dialogue, Kathy Curnow Dec 1990

Oberlin's Sierra Leone Saltcellar: Documenting A Bicultural Dialogue, Kathy Curnow

Kathy Curnow

Oberlin College's Allen Art Museum owns an ivory saltcellar made by a West African artist for a Portuguese client in the late 15th or early 16th century in Sierra Leone. The artist had to consider what foreign and local features to include in this export piece; it conforms in shape to European cups or chalices and depicts some Portuguese, but also includes what appears to be a local motif of dogs confronting snakes. The facial style is decidedly local, resembling the prognathous faces of contemporaneous stone sculptures. The saltcellar is topped with an image of the kneeling Virgin Mary ...

Alien Or Accepted? African Perspectives On The Western 'Other' In 15th And 16th Century Art, Kathy Curnow Dec 1989

Alien Or Accepted? African Perspectives On The Western 'Other' In 15th And 16th Century Art, Kathy Curnow

Kathy Curnow

The visual record of Africa's interaction with the West is proving to be a rich source of information concerning the changing natures of ethnographic perception. Post-contact imagery reflects shifting attitudes shaped by political, economic and historical events and trends. Examination of an individual artist's treatment of "the other" and his departure from or conformation with prevailing cultural attitudes can reveal a range of responses and interpretations of the outsider as enemy, a part of daily life, or a being with religious or prestige associations. This article compares ivory carvers' attitudes towards late 15th/early 16th-century Portuguese travelers to ...

Ordering The Urban Environment: City Statutes And City Planning In Medieval Todi, Italy, Samuel D. Gruber Dr. Dec 1989

Ordering The Urban Environment: City Statutes And City Planning In Medieval Todi, Italy, Samuel D. Gruber Dr.

Samuel D. Gruber, Ph.D.

Discusses the deliberate urban policies that of medieval Todi, Italy that helped create a functioning and beautiful medieval town through explicit laws and the careful micro-planning that utilized an incremental urbanism to create an inter-connected and integrated urban environment. Many of the medieval views visitors assume are part of an "organic" growth are actually careful projections of communal power and order.

The Filiation Of The Music Illustrations In A Boethius In Milan And In The Piacenza Codice Magno, Elizabeth Teviotdale Dec 1987

The Filiation Of The Music Illustrations In A Boethius In Milan And In The Piacenza Codice Magno, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

Proposes a common prototype from the tradition of illustrated manuscripts of Cassiodorus’s Institutiones as the explanation for the close iconographic relationship between music illustrations in a manuscript (here dated to the 11th century) of the De arithmetica and De musica of Boethius (Milan, Biblioteca Ambrosiana, MS C.128 inf.) and in the 12th-century Codice Magno (Piacenza, Biblioteca Capitolare, MS 65). Suggests that the iconography may have originated in a Carolingian scriptorium.

An Unpublished Description Of The Villa Doria In Genoa During Charles V'S Entry, 1533, George Gorse Jan 1986

An Unpublished Description Of The Villa Doria In Genoa During Charles V'S Entry, 1533, George Gorse

Pomona Faculty Publications and Research

Recent scholarship on the Renaissance villa in Italy has emphasized its two major functions, as a pleasure retreat from the city and as a ceremonial entry into the city. This documentary note publishes a previously unknown Mantuan description of the Villa Doria in Genoa, addressed to Isabella d'Este, during the triumphal entry of Charles V into Genoa from March 28 to April 8, 1533. The document has interest for Renaissance scholars as the first description of the Villa Doria and of Perino del Vaga's decorations of 1529-33. It also shows the villa as part of a ceremonial sequence ...


The Seven Sleepers And The Seven Kneelers: Prolegomena To A Study Of The "Belles Verrières" Of The Cathedral Of Rouen, Michael Watt Cothren Jan 1986

The Seven Sleepers And The Seven Kneelers: Prolegomena To A Study Of The "Belles Verrières" Of The Cathedral Of Rouen, Michael Watt Cothren

Art & Art History Faculty Works

The recomposed, much-altered, and partially dispersed vestiges of the original nave-aisle glazing of Rouen Cathedral--the so-called "Belles Verrières"--constitute one of the most important but least studied ensembles of early 13th-century French stained glass. This article will address two windows represented in the "Belles Verrières" as a means of exploring a working methodology for reconstructing the Rouen nave-aisle glazing. From a close analysis of all remaining fragments, the original design of the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus and John the Evangelist windows will be reconstructed. Once assembled, each window will be evaluated in relation to stylistic, iconographic and historical contexts. The ...

The Drawings And Paintings In An Ottonian Epistle-Lectionary, Elizabeth Teviotdale Sep 1985

The Drawings And Paintings In An Ottonian Epistle-Lectionary, Elizabeth Teviotdale

Elizabeth C Teviotdale

A consideration of the relative chronology of the drawings and paintings in among the five completed miniatures of Berlin, Staatsbibliothek Preussischer Kulturbesitz, MS theo. lat. fol 34, an epistle lectionary, presumably of the 10th century. Concludes that the originally intended iconography of the scenes in the Berlin manuscript is, in each case, distinct from that of the corresponding scene in the Codex Egberti (Trier, Stadtbibliothek, MS 24) and that the iconographic elements which peculiarly link the the Berlin manuscript to the Trier manuscript were added after the paintings were finished.

The Villa Of Andrea Doria In Genoa: Architecture, Gardens, And Suburban Setting, George Gorse Jan 1985

The Villa Of Andrea Doria In Genoa: Architecture, Gardens, And Suburban Setting, George Gorse

Pomona Faculty Publications and Research

This paper reconsiders Andrea Doria's 16th-century villa in Genoa as an architectural and garden monument in relation to its original suburban setting.¹ The villa has thus far been discussed primarily as a decorative monument, with scholars focusing their attention upon the interior fresco and stucco decorations of Perino del Vaga and façade paintings by Perino, Beccafumi, and Pordenone.² However, these paintings have not been understood fully in terms of the architectural, garden, and suburban context of the villa, which serves as the focus of this study.


Michelangelo's Sistine Ceiling : A Portrait Of The Renaissance, Anne A. Ferris Jan 1985

Michelangelo's Sistine Ceiling : A Portrait Of The Renaissance, Anne A. Ferris

Honors Theses

Because a single theological interpretation of the Sistine Ceiling cannot be made, the ceiling is a portrait of Renaissance concepts. Besides the personal struggles of the Pope and Michelangelo between 1508 and 1512, the ceiling is representative of the whole century before its creation. Michelangelo has mingled both civic and religious sentiments into the ceiling. Michelangelo has combined his experiences in the Medici circle with his personal beliefs. The ceiling with its most basic depiction of the fundamental concept of man's aspiration of redemption becomes almost a chaotic representation of the history of man, but which contrasts with the ...

The Renascence Of Classical Thought And Form In The Carolingian Period, Sara James Laster Jan 1983

The Renascence Of Classical Thought And Form In The Carolingian Period, Sara James Laster

Institute for the Humanities Theses

The political stability established under the rule of Charlemagne (768-814) was conducive to the flourishing of the simultaneous resurgence of art and learning. Inspired by the achievements of the Roman Empire, Charlemagne wished to give his subjects a feeling of spiritual unity, a sense of continuity with the past, and an enhanced intellectual life. The classical intellectual tradition is traced from ancient times to the Carolingian present to demonstrate that classicism was a continuum. The thesis examines the classical tradition in the intellectual life of the Carolingian period, its conscious rejuvenation in the figurative arts, and its manifestation in the ...

An OBU Honors Special Studies Grant, matched by a donation from a private source, enabled me to spend five weeks during the summer of 1981 studying British archaeology, particularly that of the Iron Age, at Christ College, Cambridge.
