Painting gender, constructing theory the Alfred Stieglitz Circle and American formalist aesthetics by Marcia Brennan ( )
11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Focusing on the key historical criticism and art-works, Brennan shows how the identities of all five Stieglitz circle artists were presented in terms of the masculinity and femininity, and the heterosexuality and homosexuality, thought to be embedded in their work. Brennan also discusses Stieglitz's relation to competing artistic and critical movements, including Thomas Hart Benton's regionalist art and Clement Greenberg's reformulation of formalism."--BOOK JACKET
Modernism's masculine subjects : Matisse, the New York school and post-painterly abstraction by Marcia Brennan ( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the era of The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit - when social pressures on men to conform threatened cherished notions of masculine vitality, freedom, and authenticity - modernist paintings came to be seen as metaphorical embodiments of both idealized and highly conflicted conceptions of masculine selfhood. In Modernism's Masculine Subjects, Marcia Brennan traces the formalist critical discourses in which work by such artists as Henri Matisse, Willem de Kooning, and Jackson Pollock could stand as symbolic representations that at once challenged and reproduced such prevailing cultural conceptions of masculinity
